Candle Cafe: NYC


Alrighty my last review for a nyc restaurant for a while – be in LA for a few weeks but back to Candle though. Me and my mom had lunch there today before heading over to the MoMa which was a lot of fun. Had a favorite the BBQ tempeh and sweet potato sandwich which I’ve already reviewed- scrumptious sandwich one of my favorite things at Candle. Fresh Wheat Bread, soft sweet potatos, thick tempeh, and healthy kale.YUM. We also split the Living Sprout Salad. This was really good and light. It had sprouts, crunchy beans, raisins and sesame seeds accompanied by a carrot ginger dressing. Had the perfect amount of crunch and creamy dressing. You must go to Candle. 🙂

Sacred Chow: NYC




So today I hit a good place for lunch. I don’t go to often, but maybe I should:) Sacred Chow is on Sullivan Street downtown between west 3rd and Bleeker ( right across the street from the Peanut Butter and Co.) a small cozy little vegan cafe with lots of different soys. They have so many tapas to choose from. Today I got the 4 Seasons Salad with apple slices, beets, carrots, and crunchy yuba strips ( tofu skin) with a dijon dressing along with the Orange Blackstrap BBQ Seitan with onions for some good protein. The Salad only $9.95 was HUGE! I ended up taking half home for later .. This salad was so good- the yuba strips are nice and crunchy with fresh veggies to go with. The Seitan was also really really good. I love seitan and they did it justice for sure:) I also got an order of the Mama soy meatballs with sicillian sauce to go – these are super good had them before and there really yummy. Of course I had a green ice tea to go with:). Great food, healthy, lots of choices. . I would recommend this place if your a vegan goo roo otherwise you might not understand the menu all that well:)

Cafe Blossom: NYC


I’m always tempted when I go to Blossom to go right back to my normal Southern Seitan Sandwich order ( which is so good)- But today I felt like a nice light salad with some seitan in it. I ordered the Spring Salad which is so good! Tomatoes, carrots, jicima, with a nice light dressing. Along with the seitan for some protein:). Yummy salad- of course my favorite salad in the city is at Peacefood.. but Blossom always wins for sandwhiches:)

Zen Palate: NYC



Tried a new dish at Zen Palate on 9th avenue.. ( the only one left- ha) Tried the sesame medallion.. Grilled seitan with blanched broccoli in a BBQ Sauce, with brown and red rice accompanied with moo shoo rolls.. Really good dish. very filling but healthy and yummy! Definitely recommend if your a fan of seitan ( which I am;)}..

Candle Cafe: NYC


So had lunch today at Candle Cafe on the UES. Love this place. super good food. Today I tried something new.. Giner Miso Stir Fry, I substituted the tofu for Seitan because I like it better. It’s a great light meal, Seitan, broccoli, spinach, peppers served over brown rice with a ginger miso sauce. Really yummy:) The downside of Candle is that it is a bit expensive – well worth the money to me but it depends on what you want to spend for a meal, the upside is that the portions are big and easily can be used for 2 meals. bon a petite 🙂

Tempeh Avocado Sandwich($9.00) with a side of veggies. Whole grain spelt bread with tempeh, pickled radishes, and shredded carrots and of course avocado but I don’t like avocado. This was a great sandwich, thick and filling with a great side of crunchy veggies. peacefood was voted best sandwiches in nyc so you have to try!

Also tried the vegan Pizza. absolutely delicious! ($10.95)

Loving Hut: Cape Coral FL.




Today we tried loving hut in cape coral for the first time! It recently opened in Cape Coral and is 100% vegan asian cheap food! Today we tried the “Stir Fry Noodles” ($6.75) Rice Noodles, Celery, Carrots, Tofu, Snap Peas, Mushrooms, and Broccoli. This dish was really great. They  make everything fresh to order right when you request and it comes out piping hot:)  We also split the “Mongolian Delight” ($7.95) tvp Protein, Onion in a Soy Sauce and Mushroom Sauce, served with Steam Broccoli, Snow Peas and Brown Rice. Served with a small Side Salad. Very Filling and scrumptious .. perfect balance of protein, grains, and veggies! We had to try an appetizer as well so we decided on the “Summer Rolls”($2.75) Salad, Jicama, Shitake Mushroom, and Carrot Wrapped in Rice Paper. Im a huge light roll type person and these were pretty delish. No complaints a nice refreshing light wrap:) Loving Hut is a great edition to Cape Coral ( being the only vegan place in Cape Coral FL) If your hungry for some asian grub stop in for a bite:)
Peace. Love and of course vegan food:)
