TRUE FOOD is True Love
Posted on 02 / 14 / 2013
Stumbled on this gem one day boppin' around Nyack. As a vegan, I was very pleased to see so many hot vegan lunch options, i.e. rich, hearty, healthy, vegetable stews (chock full of carrots, sweet potatoes, eggplant, cauliflower, kale, peas, etc), ultra tasty grains, beans and legumes, and out of this world soups (e.g., ginger carrot), all maxed out w ingredients that are as fresh as "humanly" possible.. lots of nice asian spices, curries, lots of ginger, garlic, never too spicy though which i like (cuz i like to taste the ingredients). They also make a tofu breakfast wrap which is yumm. Their cold drinks are carefully chosen and it is here where I discovered the genius that is Fentimans Dandelion & Burdock - a botanically brewed carbonated soda infused with dandelion leaves & burdock root, sweetened with pear juice, and spiced with a touch of ginger anise. The only thing blatantly missing was a variety of vegan desserts (only thing i saw was one vegan scone and not a huge sconehead) and of course i would like to see them sell much, much less meat and dairy. Anyone who does vegan this exceptional, needs to go all vegan in my opinion. Build it and they will come. I went back 5 out of the next 7 days. I met the owner/chef and she is lovely. Eat here asap!!!
