Vegan Pre-Mothers Day Lunch – Really Good Choice!

Ashley and I love exploring new foods and restaurants. When I started this Blog I hoped to not only share my recipes, but also highlight our culinary discoveries. After an appointment today we were looking for a place to grab a quick and healthy lunch. Ashley has found many good places to eat through Yelp! I highly suggest using it. She found this cute little place that I had no idea about and it is very close to where I work!

The Restaurant is not much to look at on the outside it’s in a small strip mall and you’d probably drive right by it. We went inside and you have to walk through a little organic product market to get to the order counter. We ordered and paid and went to sit down. The restaurant is decorated quite nicely sort of a shabby chic country vibe, and Billy Holiday playing in the background.

Ashley ordered to start:

The avocado fries which were basically slices of avocado rolled in coconut and deep-fried it was also served with a garlic aïoli which actually tasted very good. It was both crunchy and creamy and the garlic aïoli made it even more delicious.

We also ordered:

A Teriyaki Tempeh Bowl – A hearty bowl featuring house marinated Tempeh, roasted sweet potatoes, fresh baby greens and your choice of brown rice or quinoa. Served with a light and tangy house teriyaki and flash fried garlic slices. It was a really good hearty salad Ashley enjoyed it a-lot. I’ve never really liked Tempeh but the way they cooked this one it tasted really good maybe I never cooked it correctly. For those of you who don’t know, Tempeh is a meat substitute made from fermented soy beans.

I had the sesame tofu bowl which is a healthy serving of marinated grilled tofu with steamed broccoli, shredded red cabbage and carrots, over quinoa served with a creamy sesame lime dressing and roasted chickpeas. It was really yummy and satisfying.

Our discovery of this little place was a nice surprise for a pre-Mother’s Day lunch with me and Ashley. I really enjoyed our time together and cherish these special moments and also ate some good food! Check it out if you are in Broward County, Florida.
