Amazing! - Edit

I saw this restaurant listed on HappyCow and I just had to give it a try. As a West Indian-American, it was a little challenging transitioning to a more plant-based lifestyle simply because I missed some of our traditional dishes. Fortunately, Natural Blend has made that so much easier! When I visited, I made my own maca smoothie with tropical fruits and purchased their vegan curry chicken and brown rice & peas. While I am not a huge fan of soy or mock meats in general, I wanted to check it out and I was definitely pleased! And the beauty of it all is that the staff are kind, they prepare your food with agility, the restaurant has that good Caribbean feel and the food is reasonably priced. I definitely recommend!

Great place! - Edit

I loved my lunch at Natural Blend! It's quite amazing to have vegan jamaican food in NYC! They had two vegan dishes. I choosed the one with the soy proteins, the rice and peas and the vegetables. It was very good, full of flavor and cheap ($10 for the medium size). They have also amazing choices regarding pastries: banana bread, carrot cake, black cake and even a zuccini cake... I had the black cake which is typical of Jamaica and it was excellent. They also have icecreams, smoothies and juices. The service is very quick and the staff very nice. If I could I would provide 5 stars but as they serve fish the system don't allow me to.

Pros: A good diversity of food, Excellent, Cheap

Decent but not much more - Edit

Has a somewhat-confusing array of Carribbean-inspired fake-meat dishes; lots of seitan and daiya. Greasy comfort food - can be good when you're in the mood for it; not something to go out of your way for.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Small, Confusing menu

lifesaver for veg picnic food! - Edit

for a last-minute picnic, we were desperate for healthy veg food...grateful to have found this place so close to the park! super fast, very friendly, you can sense that health is of their utmost importance. good green juice, sandwiches weren't *amazing* but hit the spot, vegan zucchini bread very tasty.

Great, home made feel - Edit

I tried the mock meat curry for lunch, as it was recommended and ready to serve.
The curry came with a rice and bean mix. It was tasty and modestly spiced with a home made feel.
Would recommend!
I also just had to try the sea weed smoothie, which was very interesting.

Pros: fast, cheap, tasty
