was in NYC this past weekend...here are some photos of foodular adventures.


veggie summer rolls @ saigon grill, near union square. unlike any vietnamese restaurant i've been to, they actually have vegetarian options!


vegetable skewers with Holy Peanut Sauce, also @ Saigon Grill. the veggies were pretty good but i could drink that peanut sauce on its own.


pizza at grimaldi's, the pizzeria under the brooklyn side of the brooklyn bridge. toppings: black olives, roasted red pepper and mushroom.

some food from a NYC trip in the spring:


course #1 at degustation: spanish "tortilla", quail egg and shallot confit. we saw tyra banks there!


course #2: warm mushroom salad with raclette fondu and fresh dill


course #3: salad of arugula greens with beets and marcona almonds. looks boring but was quite tasty (and this is coming from someone who doesn't like salad).


course #4: slowly poached egg, smoked cheese and rice cracker crusted asparagus

there was a course #5 (dessert) but i forgot to take a picture and ate it. oops...

Really? That's too bad; in Boston we have two fully vegetarian (vegan) Vietnamese restaurants, and the others I've been to are pretty veggie friendly (though I suspect there's fish oil in the sauces).

oh man so jealous! i thought that since toronto is a big city, its vietnamese restos would be more veg-friendly...maybe i shouldn't give up my search yet :)
