New York, NY Food Truck Review: The Green Radish

Posted by on May 14, 2014 in Everything Else | 0 comments

Doesn't it look delicious? That's because it is.

I’ve been meaning to write a review of the delicious offerings from the Green Radish food truck for quite some time.  After all, what’s not to love about the fact that just about everything on their vegan, organic menu can be made gluten free (yes!)? And I especially love that I don’t have to queue to place my order (although if they keep getting stellar reviews, that may change). So far, it’s one of New York City’s best-kept vegan secrets.

Sweet Treats in New York, NY: Vegan Divas Bakery

I stopped by Vegan Divas Bakery one spring afternoon to check out their gluten-free and vegan offerings. They had a raspberry cheesecake (which looked yum), chocolate cake, and chocolate-dipped macaroons.  I decided to try the latter two.

The macaroon was good, but not quite what I was hoping for.  The almonds dominated the flavor of this macaroon, which was also a little too dense and tough for my liking. That said it was a perfectly enjoyable cookie and I had no problems polishing it off!

New York, NY Restaurant Review: Candle Cafe

Last month when I was stuck at the UN at all hours, there was one morning I had a bit of free time before I knew I would be working late into the night.  So I decided to go for a long walk and stop in for lunch at Candle Cafe.  It has been a long time since I have visited, mostly because I don’t ever really have a reason to be on the Upper East Side. But I enjoyed my food so much I’ve decided that visiting Candle Cafe is as good a reason as any to spend more time in that neighborhood.

New York, NY Restaurant Review: Sun in Bloom

I’ve been stuck indoors and working through weekends for much of the past few weeks. So when I had a Saturday morning off in the city on a gorgeous Spring day before a set of afternoon meetings, I decided to take full advantage of it. I headed straight to Tribeca to try the food at the new Sun in Bloom location and I’m happy to report that it was a trip that was definitely worth taking. With its primarily vegan and gluten-free menu, I felt like a kid in a candy store. So much choice, and oh so much deliciousness!

New York, NY Restaurant Review: Bombay Sandwich Company

I have been meaning to write this review for quite some time, because believe me, Bombay Sandwich Co.’s food is worth writing home about! I’ve tried just about everything vegan and gluten free on the menu now and when I’m craving good, wholesome, comfort food, it is at the top of my list.  

For us vegans who can’t eat gluten, it’s heavenly.
