Planet Raw, located 3 blocks from the famous Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade, is now kosher certified by (K♥R) – “Kosher Vegan Raw” which provides kashrut certifications to vegan and raw products and restaurants. (K♥R) is run by Rabbi Uziel Moses out of Los Angeles.
As a “vegan” restaurant, Planet Raw uses no dairy or meat. As a “raw” restaurant, they do not cook their food or use fire, thus there is no issue with bishul akum (a law forbidding the eating of certain foods cooked entirely by non-Jews).
