The Capital of the United States of America

The Capital of the United States of America

It was kind of hard for me not to hum the intro to House of Cards during my visit. It is kind of the best part of the show. The Capital building peeks out. The White House.  Whoopie. Washington’s phallic monument The National Mall, Lincoln’s Memorial […]

Greetings From Nashville, Tennessee

Greetings From Nashville, Tennessee

I arrived in Nashville in the early a.m.  One, because of entering the Central Time zone and two, more so, because I left Sweetwater, TN at the crack of dawn. I just didn’t know what to expect as far as traffic. But it was smooth […]

A Love Letter to You (Philadelphia)

A Love Letter to You (Philadelphia)

There’s always a reason to go to Philadelphia. Usually it’s food. But the food invites you to make a day of it, to explore other things. Then, the duration of exploration makes you hungry again. (So yes, it’s mostly about food.) But Philadelphia is only […]

Chick-un & Waffles at Urban Vegan Kitchen

Chick-un & Waffles at Urban Vegan Kitchen

Urban Vegan Kitchen, an all-vegan eatery billed as semi-sophisticated comfort food, has taken over Blossom On Carmine’s space. The management is the same but the new menu was designed in partnership with chef Timothy “Mississippi Vegan.” Thank goodness. New York needs a lot more restaurants not using […]

Ya Got Options.

Ya Got Options.

Bushwick, Brooklyn is now home to Elisa’s Love Bites, a gluten-free bakery with a few vegan options always on-hand. At the time of my vist, marked v-options included the Black Heart Cake, Original Sin Cake, Fig Buddies and Fluffers, aquafaba meringue cookies.   The Black Heart Cake […]

Day 3: The Best of Central Florida

Day 3: The Best of Central Florida

Brunch is a “thing.” It’s different than other meals. Maybe because it’s like two of them. Stakes are higher. Like a bad brunch is doubly bad, a great brunch can make the day. Brunch at Daya, an all-vegan restaurant in the pretty Winter Park downtown, […]

Bed-Stuy Vegan: Bushbaby

Bed-Stuy Vegan: Bushbaby

It’s a bit of a mystery when an eatery doesn’t have a “for real” website. Yelp reviews (The forced double negative Yelp effect–if someone with bad taste writes a good review, it means it’s really bad.) and a Facebook page reveal very little. Many social media leads […]

Heading For the ‘Frisco Bay / These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: <b>Bison</b>

Heading For the ‘Frisco Bay / These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: Bison

I never really spent much time in San Francisco. As a reporter of vegan food all about this great country, why wouldn’t I have spent more time in the very veg-friendly Bay Area? It just didn’t sit right with me. No need to fret. The […]

January is a blur.

January is a blur.

I feel like January always flies. In the gung-ho of setting productive routines for the new year, time is used optimally. And so it is moves swiftly. Here are some photos of its food choices. I did a week of gluten-free-ness, which started with these gluten […]

Jersey Day Trip

Jersey Day Trip

Treating my home, and its surrounding cities, like I would an unknown city—subject to the same fine tooth comb in search of vegan options—my list of vegan leads in the neighbor state New Jersey was growing. And preferring a random and mysterious lone vegan option […]

Midwest Vegan, Day 7 [Goodbye, Chicago]

Karyn delivered–in save-the-best-for-last fashion. And after peeping her menus from her multiple vegan restaurants for many years, I was finally sitting in Karyn’s on Green, ready for Saturday brunch. I had the Breakfast Sliders: two delicious Belgian waffles for a bun, their yummy butternut squash “bacon,” a […]

Waffle and Wolf

Waffle and Wolf

Don’t you wish you can step behind the counter sometimes, take a restaurant’s menu and create vegan options with their raw materials? Sneak in fresh-made vegan whip, wipe the waffle grill with softened Earth Balance, caramelize their bananas? I want to do that at Waffle and […]

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 4

West Coast Eating Extravaganza, Day 4

I have just returned from a tremendous bout of traffic along U.S. Coastal Route 1. If I didn’t think that this was one of the most beautiful highways in the entire country, I’d probably be a bit more frustrated now. But a day of eating […]
