New Raw Vegan Restaurant Opens in Chicago’s West Loop

Uncooked—an all-vegan and zero waste restaurant—opened its doors in Chicago’s Fulton Market District on July 6, 2020. The Black-owned, woman-owned, and family-owned restaurant was founded by Jeremy Jones, Kaitlyn Jones, and Carole Jones. Carole is the former chef and cofounder of Chicago Raw, a raw plant-based establishment in Chicago.

Uncooked is a grab-and-go restaurant offering raw foods that are 100% plant-based, gluten-free, and sustainably sourced using only whole food ingredients and zero refined sugars or agave. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Uncooked serves coffee, smoothies, elixirs, juices, snacks, entrées, and desserts and uses only plant-based, compostable packaging.

Jeremy told VegOut, “Uncooked has been a business in the making for over a decade. It is our hope to put a product on the market that people gravitate towards because it is good. We’ve been fortunate enough to have been born at a time where a lot of trailblazers have laid the path for us to succeed. We’ve been fortunate enough to avoid tangible sexism or racism, it also helps that everyone [who has] come through our doors has been amazing and seems to have an elevated consciousness.”

Uncooked not only caters to the vegan community and those exploring a plant-based lifestyle, but also to people who want to live more sustainably. Without any refined sugar, dairy or gluten on the entire menu, guests will be amazed when they taste the restaurant’s star dishes. The family expressed, “Our favorites are the cacio e pepe, sesame noodle, flatbread pizza, the cakes, and the goddess salad.” In addition to its grab-and-go storefront, the brick-and-mortar will offer catering and delivery.

Uncooked is located at 210 N Carpenter St, Suite 140, Chicago, IL 60607 and open Monday-Friday from 7am-8pm and Saturday from 9am-5pm. To learn more, visit eatuncooked.com.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
