A Down to Earth Place with a Healthy Variety
Posted on 02 / 02 / 2014
Flavorful, low fat meals with a variety of vegetables, beans, tofu, and mock meat served on a bed of vegetable rice and pasta. Especially enjoyed their collard greens and the baked vegetable pocket (like a turnover). While the food is light, the quantities are large--I could only finish 2/3rds of a 'medium' plate (only $9). I liked the desserts--if you like them too sweet and oily, you may not. A mellow Guyanese vegan chef--who said he never heard the term "vegetarian" or "vegan" in his home town, but this was what food was. A well worn bible was open to the Psalms at the counter--suggesting a vegan Christian group. Place was constantly busy with Caribbean clients who say it is the best Caribbean food in New York, and an occasional hipster. Most people seem to do takeout, but there is a counter if you want to eat in as we did.
Excellent food, Down to earth, Great Value
Definitely not a date place!, Colorful neighborhood felt safe @daytime, Minimal counter seating
