And Many Mooooore
August 1, 2010
Birthdays are fun. Especially when they involve raw vegan restaurants, chocolate, and cupcakes.
This will be a post of few words but of many pictures..mostly because I’m exhausted as I type this…and I know y’all just want the food porn.
Did not disappoint!
Luna’s Living Kitchen was previously a pure vegetarian restaurant. I was devastated when they shut down a few months ago – so when I found out that they re-opened you KNOW I had to pay them a visit. Very much improved – everything on the menu was vegan and raw!
Raw zucchini spaghetti with mushrooms and pesto.
Sissy and Mum got the sprouted quinoa and kamut burger.
At one point, my carnivorous counterpart said “OHEMGEE this is SO good. It’s amazing!” Yep. Future vegan.
Go ahead and drool.
Or do what I did, and try to lick up all the drippy parts. So worth it.
El Luchador: banana, peanut, hemp milk, hemp protein, raw cacao, agave. Oh yeah, and bliss.
Next up: vegan cupcakes.
After reading about these babies on Caitlin’s blog, I knew I just had to find ‘em.
This display was beautiful!
Vanilla cupcakes with raspberry and chocolate frosting.
Eh. I wasn’t crazy about this cupcake. For $2.75, it wasn’t super expensive but it wasn’t a fantastic deal either. The Boston cupcake (AKA best in da world) was $3.50 but double the size and less oily.
This vanilla cupcake sure was moist, but that was because I’m betting there was a ton’o vegetable oil in there. I know cuppycakes aren’t supposed to be healthy and all, but I don’t like when they’re just plain old greasy. The frosting was a bit of a disappointed, too. Upon first tasting it, I didn’t think it tasted like much at all. It was kind of bland. And then I noticed the texture. It was chewy, mushy, almost like eating jam? I can’t really describe it – it made me wonder if there was gelatin in it, though.
I’ll give it a C+ but an A for effort. After all, being able to get vegan cupcakes in the dirty dirty is pretty freakin awesome.
All in all, today was purdy darn good. Food, gifties, and family time.
Oh yeah… and chocolate.
What’s the best birthday you’ve ever had?
