New York Yummy Vegan Food

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.

    Well, being the meat eater that I am, if a corned beef Reuben is on the menu, I pretty much get that all the time :D

    We are so luck to live in NYC where there are so many amazing healthy restaurants! I love any meals with lots of fresh veggies!

    How far do you think Good Health will deliver? :p
    I miss NY so much already! (and good NY friends of course!)
    My menu choices change depending on the kind of place. If there’s anything with sweet potato or squash, I usually get it. If there’s a black bean burger, I’ll usually get that too. I also like broccoli on pizza. And I feel like I have to try something different every time I go back to the same restaurant when it has several options. I’m going to have to go back to Good Health and Souen at least 20 more times each. And then brunch. Then I’ll start on Peacefood….there’s so many more in the city I need to try!

      @Gaby: I think they said down to 57th street :D Miss you too! I already found another place we need to go to – I went with my friend yesterday for lunch. It’s called Ozu on the upper west side.

    i’ve yet to find a vegan restaurant in Sydney. the closest i’ve found is the vegeatarian Thai place across the street. (which is still good, and who know us by name.) my favourite restaurant dish is probably ahi tuna (raw or med-rare) because i’m too afraid to handle raw fish at home :p

    Thanks for the suggestions! Will be in NYC next month and nobody’s commented on my NYC Vegan restaurant suggestion post, lol….but I’ve done a lot of research on my own anyway. I’ll add these to the list!
