the vegan fork: Sacred Chow

Sacred Chow

Today I went to Sacred Chow for lunch. It's a cute little place just below Washington Square Park serving tapas, sandwiches, and breakfast/brunch food.

I was really in the mood for a sandwich instead of sweet breakfasty stuff, otherwise I would not have been able to resist the banana bread french toast (that will require another visit).

I was torn between the roasted black olive seitan sub and the orange bbq seitan sub. I went with the black olive seitan, but I'm not sure it was the right decision. It was good, but the seitan was kind of salty and didn't have any black olive flavor (beyond the saltiness). Some pieces of the seitan were a little big and kind of doughy in the middle, too. It came with vegan "mozzarella," which was good but not too cheese-like...it was creamy/liquidy like a creamy sauce. And boy was it messy -- and giant. The cole slaw it came with was not very good (my dining partner took one bite and pronounced it "unremarkable").




I think next time I'll try the orange bbq seitan...or some tapas, but I don't know if I can convince anyone I know to go to a tiny little vegan restaurant for tapas....it seems like most people I know like all the weird meats and cheeses they get when going out for tapas, so I don't know if seitan and raw kale will do it.
