Though the Jamaican heritage of the owners of Fire & Spice Vegan Restaurant might not directly influence their love of raw food, it certainly informs some of their vegan and vegetarian recipes. On their menu, vegan ital–a blend of spices, coconut milk, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins–gets blended into stews. An eastern-inspired red lentil dahl also appears alongside hearty tempeh burgers and delicately barbecued tofu. Outside of the fire-kissed specialties, a portion of the menu is devoted to raw foods—from salads to mashed potatoes—cooked below 115 degrees. A number of gluten-free options are also available.
