More Vegan Stuff On Long Island

More Vegan Stuff On Long Island

I am having a hard time keeping up with new vegan offerings.  And since “plant-based” was named the number one food trend for 2018, I’ll be very busy. Here is a quick run-down on some new-to-me vegan options on la isla largo. Real Food, Real […]

Asbury Park

Asbury Park

When the seductive sun returns and undresses you, leaving the Southern hemisphere on the sly and randomly, you make an occasion of it. It was Spring in February! We had the plan to head to the Jersey Shore off-season for lunch before this forecast. Partly because […]

Waaaah.

Waaaah.

The bummer of my flight being cancelled seemed to infiltrate my food choices, too. I plan to make up for these less than wonderful options with a kick-butt breakfast tomorrow. But first, some roamings: The Babcock Building of the South Carolina Lunatic Asylum, now empty and […]

Vegan Pizzas in Greenpoint

Vegan Pizzas in Greenpoint

I used to shy away from vegan pizza pie. Either it was piled high with heavy, wet veggies on a soggy crust or it was topped with the dreaded Daiya. But these days, vegan stuff is improving. Like at Greenpoint Brooklyn’s Adelina’s, who has been on my radar […]

A Mixed Bag

A Mixed Bag

These are a few of my favorite things: Mango & sweet sticky rice (from Thaism, my work Thai spot) Lunch after errands at Bareburger, because… Brooklyn date at M.O.B. because traffic was so bad to drive anywhere else! I got their delicious seitan meatball hero […]

Omusubi & Pizza in Manhattan

Omusubi & Pizza in Manhattan

There are many things I enjoy about omusubi, Japanese rice balls with goodies within. They are handheld, small, and contain the flavor punch of an entire meal… and, lastly, they are not a meal. I had a dinner reservation on the horizon, after all. At […]

Mozzarella in Carozza (burnt) Fried Mac N Cheese Balls with coconut bacon Grandma Pizza with housemade cashew cheese (burnt)

Quick Bite: <i>ZA</i>

Quick Bite: ZA

Things that still me remind me of my childhood on Long Island: the smell of hose water, the crack of a skateboard; and a hot, cardboard pizza box on my lap on the drive home. ZA in Seaford used to be Long Island Vegetarian Eatery […]

Night Game–Citi Field Vegan

Night Game–Citi Field Vegan

The second to last row in Citi Field is first row for the sunset viewing. First course munchies: A slice of V for Vegan from Two Boots‘s stand. Though I’m not a fan of the Daiya fake cheese, it’s a rule you get to splurge at the ballpark. […]

Paulie Gee’s, Vegan Pizza Heaven in Greenpoint

Paulie Gee’s, Vegan Pizza Heaven in Greenpoint

For more hearty winter cravings, I met with CP for a Brooklyn pizza dinner. After a tremendous wait time thwarting our dinner plans a few weeks back, I couldn’t get Paulie Gee’s out of my head. It had been several years since we had been there, […]

Humane Education / Humane Eats [Day 2 & 3]

Humane Education / Humane Eats [Day 2 & 3]

Days are jam-packed with learning. Luckily I am fed well. Here are the last couple of days’ eats, taken with my crappy camera phone. Mushroon no-quessadillas with nooch cheese sauce. Homemade chocolate ice cream Black bean and corn salad and pico de gallo Root veggie […]

Spring Springing

Spring Springing

With winter’s long awaited goodbye, I am psyching myself up for tasty Spring. A gluttonous long-overdue feast of eats. What’s Spring have to do with eating a lot of food? Nothing really–but I plan partake in feasting anyway, loosely connecting it to some seasonal ritual […]

Photo Ketchup

Photo Ketchup

Sometimes we buy pizza dough from one of the million pizzerias on Long Island. This was a minimalist pie: artichoke, salt, pepper, olive oil. Still using pumpkin puree… these were the pretty little ditties I whipped up for my grade team holiday lunch. Received some […]

The Sauce.

The Sauce.

Whenever I am heating up a sauce, I pour way more than enough into the pot. Because I slurp it by the spoonful at each degree it rises. I love sauce. And that’s what this collection of food pictures have in common. Sauce. What a […]

Day 8 in Deutschland, The Black Forest

Day 8 in Deutschland, The Black Forest

I’m so glad we made our way into the Black Forest region, heading southeast from Kemnath towards the Swiss border. Our first stop was Stuttgart. With more than 5 million people residing in the Stuttgart metropolitan region, it’s no wonder that the city is bustling […]

Day 2 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Germany

Day 2 in Deutschland, Vegan Eats in Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Germany

Day 2 in Germany started with a trip to the army base, where photography is prohibited unfortunately. My friend pays American prices for gas on the base, thank goodness, as European gas prices are so high not even tacking on the exchange rate. We missed […]

Naked.

Naked.

Max made me a vegan pizza, start to finish, with his bare hands. (And I know he washed them often as he is allergic to gluten!) Sure, sure. This is what he gets paid to do, yes. He’s a Naked pizza man! Naked is a […]

Vegan Day on Long Island

Vegan Day on Long Island

I have to give props to Vegguide‘s community members. This guide is so robust with locations offering options for vegetarians and vegans. Whether it’s a completely vegan restaurant or an omnivorous place with a single veg-friendly dish, the community covers the entire world (yes, all […]

Lower East Vegan

Lower East Vegan

Pala on the Lower East Side has a great vegan menu. It also has gluten-free options. Given its proximity to the Sunshine Theater, it makes for an easy option for a vegan and a one with gluten intolerance. So we, vegan and one with gluten intolerance, dined […]

Paulie Gee’s in Greenpoint

Paulie Gee’s in Greenpoint

Sometimes you want a slice of pizza that is isn’t covered in vegan cheese. Don’t get me wrong. Vegan cheese has it’s place. But I am irked by eateries that rely on it too heavily. That think it’s the end-all be-all of vegan entree enhancement. So […]

White Pizza

White Pizza

When I was a kid there was a local pizza place where the neighborhood kids and I hung around. On Long Island there is a ma-and-pop’s pizza parlor in every cluster of stores, red, green and white variations on the same theme: real, Italian food. […]

Goodbye, Counter

Goodbye, Counter

The East Village’s Counter, one of the only higher-end vegetarian restaurants below 14th street, is closing its doors. So the usual vegheads and I had to have one more taste. I have always enjoyed Counter’s food, especially their brunch, but after each visit I did not soon […]

Pounding the Dough

Pounding the Dough

How to start a new year right: Don’t do anything all day. Load up on carbohydrates; it’s going to be another swift year. Clean out fridge leftovers by piling them on pizza dough. Eat the pizza. Eat the pizza twice. $4 from the local pizzeria […]

Pizza Break.

Pizza Break.

  The insights on the human animal that gleam in an elementary school classroom are ceaseless. Open and active minds are contagious, emitting a palpable force-field into the air. The most minute shift in emotions blares obviously on child’s face. And pizza has the power […]
