This is how you start dinner at Sacred Chow!

A Week In The Belly of NYC: Sacred Chow.

March 17, 2012

Hot pumpkin wine with ginger, double chocolate stout floater with vanilla
ice cream, hard cider.

That is how you start dinner at Sacred Chow, 227 Sullivan Street, NYC.

These way-more-interesting-than-usual drinks were followed by

the best raw kale we've ever consumed ('massaged' with salt

and covered in Dijon mustard - a crispy, salty, oily mystery),

and a black olive seitan sandwich with low-key crusty bread.

And juicy, strangely fleshy meatballs; Korean tofu cutlets

with garlic, ginger and chilli; tofu with dill;

root vegetable latkes made of dates with date butter;

and barbeque seitan.

Puds were ridiculous with lavender and chocolate cheesecake

(like 'eating soap with a bar of chocolate, in a good way')

which came with a cumulonimbus of coconut creme fraiche

lounging on the top

(unfinished but escorted home through St Patrick's Day

staggerers in doggy bag).

Sarah stuffed in only two thirds of a peanut butter

and chocolate torte, bit delicious,

and Jating's heroic consumption of a Dutch apple pie

with vanilla ice cream and that slightly salty bake-sale crust

embarrassed us both.

We got all this at http://sacredchow.com/ 227 Sullivan Street, NYC.

...oh and the waiter deserves props for barely being able

to conceal his excitement about the food,

but holding it down till he got to the lavender cheesecake.
