Seabirds Food Truck

Posted in dessert, dinner, lunch, mexican, restaurants on July 24, 2012 by nosferatofu

The best vegan/vegetarian food truck in my area was at my work today for our health and fitness event.

I speed walked a 5k and then I enjoyed beer battered avocado tacos and a vegan nutella cupcake.

It was insanely delicious!

Vegan Food and Fun

Posted in asian, dinner, events, restaurants on April 29, 2012 by nosferatofu

As an early Mother’s Day gift, on Friday I took my mom out to dinner at Au Lac, a popular Asian themed vegan restaurant in my area.  They specialize in raw, which is good, but not really my thing.  We got a soy beef steak with asparagus and brown rice, fried tofu with pepper, and kung pao chicken.  I don’t normally eat so much soy, but this was a special occasion 🙂

They were out of their awesome choconut xtacy dessert, so we tried a rainbow fruit type thing, and I got an avocado parfait.  It was seriously delicious.

My main reason for taking my mom out to dinner was to get her in the area of a particular Barnes & Noble where there was going to be a book signing by the vegan chef for Ellen DeGeneres.  My mom likes to watch the Ellen show, and earlier in the week he was on there talking about  his new cookbook, Vegan Cooking for Carnivores, that was coming out and I said I would get it for her for mother’s  day.  So when I was going to go to the bookstore to pick it up, I saw he was doing a book signing.  What a coincidence!

It was a lot of fun and the  chef is really nice.  I ended up meeting his wife and son, who were very nice as well.  The cookbook has some incredible recipes, and is now my favorite cookbook….and finally…..a vegan cookbook written by a guy!

Check it out, the recipes are seriously great.  All in all, it was a really nice Friday night.

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Went to Thuyen Vien last week for dinner and to put in my order for their holiday feast.  It looks so delicious I can’t wait to try it out.

They have really good vegan cheesecake.

Monterey

Just got back from the Internet Librarian conference in Monterey.

It was a fun trip!  Got to eat lots of good food, but unfortunately I forgot to take many pictures.  Here’s one of the potato gnocchi I had on the first night I got into town.

It was delicious!

For Easter I got the spring Wellington from Native Foods.  It was so good!

I can’t wait for the next holiday to get this!

Cheese Cake without the Cheese

I ordered a spring wellington from Native Foods for my Easter meal.  It looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it.

While there, I indulged in a vegan cheese cake.  So good!

Ethiopian

Wot

I have been craving some Ethiopian food for a while now.  But there aren’t really any Ethiopian restaurants around here.

But last week I noticed the grocery store started carrying hand made Ethiopian food.  They have a variety of items, and I’ve only tried one of them so far.  Looking forward to trying more.

These ready made items come from an Ethiopian vegan restaurant in Los Angeles called Rahel Ethiopian.  Next time I’m in LA I hope to stop by there for lunch or dinner.
