Those eating vegetarian, vegan, raw, and gluten-free in Tempe can now put Carrots on the list -- 24 of them.

24 Carrots, the cafe and juice bar started in 2008 by Sadhana "Sasha" Raj (who came up with the idea for the restaurant while studying biochemistry at ASU), has pulled up stakes at its original location in Chandler and put down new roots in Tempe, at 1701 East Guadalupe at McClintock Road.

"24 Carrots firmly believes that what you leave off your menu (excessive salt, fat, sugar, artificial flavors, and preservatives) is as important as what you choose to include," says Raj.

In addition to an expanded new menu of casual healthy dishes based around seasonal produce, the larger Tempe space also allows for perks like a gluten-free and regular bakery, a patio, and a coffee bar.

24 Carrots ever-changing menu will continue to include a selection of snacks, salads, soups, sandwiches, and house favorites such as Spaghetti & Beetballs and Curry
Chickun Street Tacos. The regular and gluten-free bakery will feature separate ovens and work spaces, each cranking out goodies like custom cakes, cupcakes, and breads.

"We take broken trust by others in the food industry to heart, says Raj, "and we combat it every day by choosing to ethically source our ingredients from farms using environmentally conscious principles. We are proud supporters of our local farming community."

24 Carrots is now open in Tempe. A grand opening celebration will take place on Sunday, December 15, during business hours. 24 Carrots plans to begin opening for dinner starting in January, 2014. For more details, go to the restaurant's Facebook page.

They moved two blocks to be Tempe vs Chandler.... Anyway, the old location, meh, but it's close to my office. New one, closer to me office. Not even interested - blandest food ever.

I agree, there are still a few places that do not understand how to roast and peel the chiles!

I ordered the Chili Rellenos yesterday and was shocked when they delivered the plate without peeling the skin off the chili. I have eaten Chili Rellenos my whole life and never once did I get one with ALL of the skin still on. The prices are too high. I don't feel as though the price/value is close. In their case the price far exceeds the actual value. I have ordered the El Vampiro and the incredible Hulk and $64.00 per gallon is just too much ($6 for 12oz size). Hey its healthy we have to overcharge.

Tempe needs another vegan restaurant like Helen Keller needs a copy of Another Bad Creation.
