I have to tell you about this place that is sooo
It's the most imaginative, freshest riot of plant-based (non-dairy) dishes (organic/vegan/vegetarian, they call themselves) that you can conceive of. The one we went to was in Orange County and the food was served under a YURT-shaped structure. (Of course, it was.)
Just look at this beautiful food!
WHY would anyone order a regular BLT again? The ONLY difference was that the bacon equivalent (PLEASE don't say you don't like tempeh until you've tasted this) didn’t have the same crispness of real bacon. But that was more than made up for with the crunchy vegetables and the extraordinary bread. The Watermelon Fresca "fresh watermelon, a touch of mint, sweetened with agave" was pretty awesome too!
A cupcake note: You know, I'm not a fan of Red Velvet Cake (or cupcakes). But I think I may just need to adjust my thinking a bit. Instead of thinking of red velvet cake as a basically failed, not-chocolatey enough cake, maybe I should think of it as a white cake, with tons of food coloring and a drop of cocoa. Nah, it still doesn’t work for me. BUT these Red Velvet Cupcakes WERE good and the cream cheese icing (always the best part) was divine. The Peanut Butter Cupcakes and the Chocolate/Chocolate ones were superb too!
