Holy de Mole
It was time to find more vegan options in Queens. With a good friend moving to Woodside, we took occasion to explore a vegan lead for dinner… Woodside’s De Mole. As we entered the dimly lit restaurant, I was eager to sit down. For squeezed between the ton of authentic Mexican dishes on menu was a seitan burrito stuffed with garlic spinach, red rice, black beans, Pico de Gallo and tofu sour cream. Some scrumptious tortilla longs were shared mid-anticipation of the burrito coming. The salsa served to strengthen the anticipation as a delicious and flavorful housemade salsa is indicative of the quality of the forthcoming meal. Savor your chips slowly as additional bags are not complimentary.
There she is. A girthy giant, a wide-wrapped wonder, the de Mole seitan burrito. Besides ease in ordering (there is no need to exclude any of the burrito’s ingredients), this burrito satisfies in all departments. It was so good. Tender seitan, a thoughtful blend of internal vegetables and a tofu sour cream that was not from a tub. I would definitely return for it or, better yet, to inquire on substituting their succulent seitan in one of the menu’s other creative dishes.
