Depending on your eating habits, the concept of raw food — in which nothing is heated past 116 degrees — may strike you as anywhere from a little strange to downright alien. But rest assured that no matter where you fall on that spectrum, you’ll be welcomed with open arms at Try It Raw, a tiny vegan diner in downtown Birmingham. The vibe at some vegan restaurants can be downright hostile if you cop to being a carnivore, but the chefs and staff at Try It Raw are more than happy to answer all your questions about raw food, whether or not it’s your usual fare. Not only that, but their interpretations of familiar dishes like tacos, lasagna and Reubens are delicious in their own right.
