Sacred Chow: "How a vegan restaurant should be."

SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2012

Which is better? - When you have high expectations and the meal comes just under or when you have no expectations and the meal ends up amazing? I vote for the second.

Sacred Chow is in my work neighborhood and I have seen it come up on my iPhone each time I search for a new vegan restaurant to try. I guess I always thought of this place as take out. You can sit here although there aren't that many tables- it's worth the wait! I was still full from my lunch at SNICE- yes I eat at SNICE minimum once a week. They are a casual easy going almost cafeteria style ordering place with a lot of tables- consistent and dependable! I work equal distance from SNICE and SACRED CHOW- now I have more options- this is very exciting for me. 


I absolutely love this place. 
It's close to my vision of "how a vegan restaurant should be." You can tell they are all about the animals by the logo alone. They care about the quality of their food and service which you can tell once you have dined here. The food is HEALTHY... and their tofu is organic! Relief- finally! Even though I wasn't hungry, I ordered a bunch of tapas with my friend. That's their thing here- VEGAN TAPAS! I tasted everything and brought home a nice plate for the next day!
I ate:  Orange Blackstrap Barbecue Seitan,
Korean Tofu Cutlets,  Shiitake Mushrooms, Mama's Soy Meatballs, Black Olive Seitan, &  Dijon Kale.


Everything was incredible!  My favorites were the olive seitan, the tofu, meatballs and the shiitake mushrooms. I will complete this menu in no time at all. Look how much I ordered when I wasn't even hungry- can you imagine? It may actually take some time though because I will be getting these same tapas again- I can't wait!
