lovely little brunch:)

Hummus Tapa

So today me and my dad decided to go for a lovely brunch in the cute little hippie joint Sacred Chow in the West Village. I’ve been a few times and always had a lovely experience. Today our food experience was delicious ( as always). ..the waitress left something to be desired though.. She opened the door 5 minutes before they opened, but didn’t say anything so we were kind of standing there awkwardly awaiting ย her to invite us in or just to acknowledge our existence..finally, I asked if they were opened and she acted like I should have known that

Tempeh Strips

they were opening 5 minutes early today.? Ok.. I wont go into detail but in general she was just a bit rude and uninviting..acted annoyed that we were there to eat.. scorned me for dropping my fork.. I felt like a child almost being punished after dropping a utensil..( oh no, not the fork!) ..let’s just say the service was disappointing today seeing as in the past I’ve always been treated so well ( they even used my picture for the tempeh reuben on there menu.) OK so to the good stuff. ย We were feeling in a bit of a “lets try lots of different goodies today” mood, so we went

Seitan Sausage

for the “3 tapas dish” ($18.00) 3 different Tapas from their huge menu of Tapas.. Choice #1: Hummus & Crostini: Homemade Lemon Tahini Hummus served with Crispy Crostini Dippers. This was amazing hummus, so refreshing and a little tangy with the lemon.. super yum. The Crostini’s were also killer! Choice #2: Tempeh Strips: Fresh Marinated Tempeh served with a Mustard Sauce. I really enjoyed this tempeh, it came with some crispy pieces and soft ones for a good mix.. the mustard sauce was tart and flavorful! mhm!

Better than biscuits & gravy.

Choice #3: Seitan Sausage (special): Fresh Grilled Seitan Patties served with Soy Cheese and Sauerkraut. This stuff was very tasty! It was their special tapa of the day and it was a fantastic choice..the cheese dip was really good almost like a hummus! My dad ordered the “Better than Biscuits & Gravy” ($13.75) Two Biscuit halves layered with Steamed Greens and Tofu Scramble ; with White Gravy. My Lord, they said “better than” and they meant it.. first off the plate was SO much food that my dad and I combined couldn’t finish it off.. absolutely amazing.. my dad is a huge “tofu scramble” guy and he was impressed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just an amazing brunch to say the least! Sacred Chow has a huge, unique menu full of healthy sandwiches, salads, soups, veggies, and the brunch is the best ever! ALSO: the portions are giant sized so you can totally get yourself two meals out of it!! Eat Clean. .. just don’t drop your fork;)

Very Berry Smoothie ( $8.25)
Tempeh Reuben ($12)

So today for lunch me and the mom headed down to West Village to one of my favorites Sacred Chow. This is such a cute little college type vegan health place ( 20% discount if you bring in a student I.D.) Haven’t been feeling my best so today before our amazing lunch I started off with the Very Berry Smoothie ($8.25) bananas, strawberries, and blueberries with your choice of soymilk, apple juice or coconut milk (GF) I opted for the apple juice. Let me say I know most of you are thinking $8.25 for a smoothie really?! At first glance you may think it is expensive, but i’ll remind you that all of the ingredients are Organic, vegan, and sugar free. I’ll also put in this note that the smoothie is nice and thick so you can easily split it, which is what we did ( so really you can cut the price in half) and at Sacred Chow everything comes in BIG portions. After this creamy amazing smoothie we decided to split the Tempeh Reuben ( $12) with chow slaw, and pickles. This sandwich was one of the most amazing things i’ve ever tasted here in ny. This sandwich came with roasted tempeh, sauerkraut, caramelized onions, and a russian dressing which was to die for! The coleslaw was small but flavorful so it sufficed for the meal, with a couple of lovely crunchy pickles:) We also split the Power Bowl– You can order this with multiple choices of protein, a grain, and a veggie. Today we got the soba noodles, with BBQ seitan, and broccoli. This bowl was perfect and HUGE bowl of food but left me feeling light and healthy ( like all of their food actually). I would definitely recommend trying both of these dishes if you ever hit the west village for some sacred chow. Really anything you order here you will love:) Alrighty kiddos eat healthy and keep it clean:)

Sacred Chow/Whole Earth Bakery: NYC

Breakfast Sandwich ( $12.75)

Chocolate Crisp ( $4.00)

So this post is a little late off but lets go ahead and do it. Let me say if your looking for a great place for a weekend brunch in NYC head on over to Sacred Chow on Sullivan Street ( west 4 area).  Today for brunch I ordered the Breakfast Sandwich($12.75)- which was phenomenal! A soft soy buttermilk biscuit filled with tofu scramble & tempeh strips served with fresh fruit ( or a garden salad or steamed greans. for Gluten Free you can get a corn tortilla) Im not sure what words to use to describe this.. All I can tell you is to try it yourself – you wont be sorry. Everything was fresh, hot and delicious:)

Chocolate Blondie ( $4.00)

After this scrumptious brunch I had to head over to Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen on St. Marks Place not to far by subway. This place is all vegan/organic/no sugar… I ordered 3 different things and tasted each ( I had to try this and put it up against Babycakes- can you even do that?!)  First I tried the Chocolate Chewy – which basically can be summed up as a Chocolate Blondie ($4.00)- It was my favorite of the 3 ordered ( doesn’t touch Babycakes just let me say that) It’s so hot in the city that by the time I got to a starbucks to enjoy the treats the chocolate had melted but that made it gooey and yum:)  Let me not that is one thing there really is no place to sit in this place, and no a.c. so I would take it to go. Second on the list was the Chocoalte Crispy($4). Pretty much a Chocolate Rice Crispy snack (vegan of course sans the sugar. ) It was alright a little bland.. Third was something a little more ordinary the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie($2.75) which once again was good nothing mouth watering. All in all I most likely came in pretty biased since Im a lover of Chef Brookes in Fort Myers and Babycakes here in NYC. That being said these little goodies weren’t  quite as flavorful as I would have liked them to be, but still a light decadent dessert on a hot day.. Thats all for now. Eat good, green and healthy:)

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:)
