When in New York one of the places I need to visit is by Chloe…the most amazing vegan cafe ever! Btw, I’m not a vegan and I’m hooked! Prepare to wait in line if you come here during peak hours, but the line goes pretty fast.
So, I’m a fan of their burgers. My favorite is the “Classic Burger” made with tempeh-lentil-chia-walnut patty, pickles, onion, beet ketchup (yes…you read that right..beet ketchup), special sauce on a potato bun. The other burger I love is the “Guac Burger” made with black bean-quinoa-sweet potato patty, corn salsa, onion, guac, tortilla strips, chipotle aioli on a whole grain bun. Both burgers, in my opinion, are nice and juicy.
For those who love salads…they have a great selection of salads but my favorite is the “quinoa taco salad” made with spicy seitan chorizo, black beans, sweet corn, avocado, tomato, tortilla strips, crema, agave-lime vinaigrette. Just writing this review…I’m craving it!
Now…let’s talk about fries!! YES…fries that are to die for!! Better yet, they are air baked fries and it didn’t lack that yummy french fry taste. They have two type of fries, sweet potato, and the traditional french fries. Wanna hear something else? You gotta try their “mac n’ cheese”…made of sweet potato-cashew cheese sauce, shiitake bacon, and almond parmesan. I loved it and the shitake bacon is crunchy and pretty flavorful!
In a hurry? They have a great selection of “ready to go” meals for those who can’t stand in line and wait for their food. Don’t forget, they also have a brunch menu on the weekends. Coming from a non-vegan, I give this cafe a “10 out of 10” and you’ll have to come by and check it out!
