Nice little place for meat eaters and vegans!
Posted on 07 / 14 / 2008
Decided to go on a Sunday road trip out to Worcester and wanted to try One Love. This small restaurant that has maybe 8 tables is small on size, but big on taste. Normally it is difficult, if not impossible, to find a restaurant where I (vegan) can eat and the rest of the family (meat eaters) can be happy as well. One Love was a pleasant surprise. This is a place where you should be ready to relax, sit back, and enjoy your meal and conversation. Too often people want to eat, rush, and be on their way. Don't go here for that. We liked the ability to sit, talk, and not feel rushed. We enjoyed the pitcher of water with fresh watermelon in it and ordered Ting sodas. As an appetizer, we ordered the ripe plantains, which came with our salads. The salad dressing was to die for and I could have eaten a mammoth sized plate of just that. For meals, the meat eaters had curried goat with white rice and jerk chicken with peas and rice. Both loved their meals and the portions were average sized with no leftovers heading home with us. I decided to try the vegan buffet, which was situated in the kitchen itself. I started with the pumpkin soup -- yummy! Then there was rasta pasta (pasta with a spicy tomato sauce that you ladled on top) and white rice with veggies. I don't know what kind of veggies -- chickpeas, potatoes, and some others, but all in all it was spicy and tasty. If you like mild food, be careful because this might be too spicy for you. The food was filling comfort food that makes me want to take a trip out to Worcester on a regular basis. As for the neighborhood, don't worry about it. This restaurant is worth the trip and if you are worried about people that don't look, act, or dress like you, then you really should stay home. The owner makes you feel like you are at a friend's house for a meal and I hope enough people give this great restaurant a chance.
The food is fantastic!, The owner is reason enough to go!, Real vegan non-processed food
