Remember that friend I hung out with last week? We met up on Friday night at a cafe kind of near my apartment: Good Health Cafe (menu here). The place is mostly macrobiotic. It does offer chicken and fish, but it’s all sustainable/free-range/organic etc.. Definitely my kind of place! And they even deliver.
Gaby and I both got the same thing: stuffed cabbage rolls with steamed veggies and a sweet potato mash.
So that was Friday night dinner. Friday lunch was just as good! My good friend (and bridesmaid) took me out for my birthday to another favorite: Peacefood Cafe (vegan, mostly raw). Peacefood is on the upper west side. I went for the Asian Greens salad (I had never gotten a salad here before).
It had a bunch of different veggies, sprouts, carrots, tomatoes, jicama (love), peanuts, and it was topped with the most amazing tempeh. I usually dislike tempeh but this was fabulous. I ate it ALL. The dressing (peanutty sesame garlicky goodness) was to die for. I want it again.
My other Peacefood post (I have been here again but I guess I didn’t post about it):
What you don’t see is my meal from Saturday brunch, which was also from Good Health. I am the type of person to go to a restaurant over and over again if it is good. Which Good Health is. I love it when I find a place that I know I can order just about anything and be happy. Souen and Good Health are now at the top of my list.
What is your favorite restaurant dish?
I always have to try papaya salad if it’s on the menu.
