The temperatures may have been dropping in New York, and the thought of a cold salad may not have been on the top of my list, but if my little ears get wind of a raw food restaurant I am on Google and mapping my way to it quicker than you can say ‘activated nuts’!
The India Platter was a Mali Kofta, chickpea and vegetable balls covered in a curried almond sauce, served with mango chutney and cucumber raita. It was creamy pillows of curried heaven.
Our second choice had to be the
Flax and corn enchiladas with ‘refried’ beans, ‘cheese’, dowsed in mole and guajillo chilli sauce. My dining partner had long been a fan of the Mexican Platter but his allegiance shifted that night to the Indian plate. Honestly, I’d happily choose either of them.
There are a few cooked items on the menu, sadly it was a one time visit on this trip so I cannot vouch for those. Their menu is extensive with original, amazing sounding appetisers and entrees (they have a dish called fofu? I’m waiting on a reply from them to enlighten me to what that may be). They serve shakes, raw pies and puddings, too. Their website is a bit odd. On face value it looks like they only deliver, this is obviously not the case.
New York never fails to be so vibrant and utterly entertaining. I captured a great moment on the subway This guy was the icing on the cake to a great night. He just walked up and started showing some moves. Only in New York?!
