Restaurant Details

A few years ago chef Mehmet Ak traded in his kebab grill for two dehydrating cabinets, transforming the Irving Park location of Cousin's Turkish Cuisine into Cousin's Incredible Vitality, a vegan restaurant specializing in raw (or "living") foods. The menu still nods to his Turkish heritage: there's flaxseed hummus and tabbouleh made from soaked and sprouted quinoa; samplers of "living mezes" feature stuffed grape leaves, shepherd's salad, and house-marinated olives alongside "not tamales," "not tuna" wraps, and minipizzas on flaxseed flatbread. Mediterranean "pasta" has angel-hair made from zucchini, raw marinara, and "Parmesan" made from pine nuts. The restaurant also offers an all-you-can eat salad bar for $7.95 or your choice of three appetizers for $14.
