After 16 years as a raw and vegan chef, producing meals in containers found in places like Whole Foods, catering and traveling, Chef Rawsheed launched his very own storefront last May. Ultra vegan bloggers tried it out early and gave their thumbs up. It left Quarrygirl dying to go back and Foodeater is glad the Valley is "no longer the dreaded no-mans land that it used to be" because SunPower does raw food the way it's supposed to be done.

We agree, too, especially when it comes to the fruit based smoothies. It may seem like a leap, but we've never had a better smoothie in this town than their green one. Wow, just wow--talk about delicious raw energy.

Rawsheed says that the new cafe is just a foundation that will lead to more. He describes his meals as "conscious creations" and is thankful for the gift he's been given as he has no formal cooking education.

The restaurant is located in Cahuenga Pass (yes, an official city neighborhood), just south of Studio City as Ventura turns into Cahunega. Hours are not as normal as most cafes and restaurants, so make sure to check their website before heading over.
