The above dish is from Seward Café. It’s their Seward Torta. My friends have raved about it, but I hadn’t had it until this last week. I usually get the radical roots stir-fry. I decided to try the sandwich this week. It is as good as they say. I’m not sure if it was good enough to bump the stir-fry out of my favorite slot. It did hit the spot in a delicious way.
Freshii is a chain restaurant mainly in malls and shopping areas. They specialize in fresh juice and smoothies. They had some food as well. I had a modified mighty detox juice with pineapple, ginger, apple, celery, and spinach. Even though the celery was a bit heavy, I found it refreshing. After trying my friend’s drink, I might have preferred their lime drink instead.
Caribbean Curry with vegetables, tofu, and red beans and rice made at Marla’s Caribbean. A small, local place importing flavors from Trinidad. It was my first visit, and I really enjoyed it. I went with a large group of vegans, and Marla made us a special dessert with raisins in a flakey pastry crust (below). I would go again.
Black Bean Groundnut Stew. This is one of my favorites and a favorite of my friends. I make it pretty regularly. A friend was helping me with a project at home, so I made her dinner to say thanks. I like feeding those who help me. I also made some bread and enjoyed it with an Angry Orchard hard apple ginger cider. The apple ginger is one of my favorites.
