Soo, like I said, I was in the city yesterday on my day off, which is rare since it takes a lot to get me out of the house. But this was important: I was meeting up with Jenny of Vegan and So Forth! I've been following her blog for probably about as long as I've been blogging (maybe we "met" one MoFo? I can't remember!) and she has always struck me as one of the kindest and most giving bloggers I know.
Anyway, she seems to travel a lot and is in New York fairly frequently. This time she was here with her newest addition and one of her older children.
We met at Sacred Chow, a 100% vegan and kosher restaurant in the West Village. I told Jenny she has probably been to more NYC restaurants than I have but this is one restaurant I've been to (once before, as I used to work across the street) and she hadn't.
I'm not big on taking photos in public but I'm less shy about it when other people are doing it as well (one of the benefits of blogger meet-ups!) And so, the Kale Caesar salad with Tofu Croutons, which we both ordered:
It was good! I'm not sure what the dressing was made of; it tasted like a creamy mustard, kind of. I'm used to totally loaded salads, and this could have had a few more vegetables but it was filling either way. Also, I had not been eating enough greens recently and this definitely hit the spot.
That's my short re-cap. I had a lot of fun and, again, Jenny, thanks for getting me out of the house. I'd never had a meet-up before and I'm kind of awkward and shy but this was laid back and nice! And now that the ice has been broken, I'm all, "Every blogger, let's hang out forever! Party at my place, come on down. And bring yr pets and kids." That was another thing! I'm not around kids very often so I never really know what to expect but I was totally impressed with Jenny's kids. They're super well-behaved and seem very intelligent. Not to mention, what a cutie.
Can't wait for her re-cap of the whole trip and to see other places I need to visit.
