Vegan on the Jersey Shore, Part 4: Kaya’s Kitchen

Vegan on the Jersey Shore, Part 4: Kaya’s Kitchen

Ah, our last meal: Kaya’s Kitchen in Belmar, New Jersey. This is why you should go:

A huge cut of seitan, breaded, then fried. This would be a *vegan* chicken-fried steak dinner, complete with mashed potatoes and veggies drowned in their garlic butter. Fantastic.

Look at that streaming pool of their vegan butter glistening those potatoes. Look at the size of that cut of seitan.

And gravy. The dish was one unbelievable bite after another.

Capturing the food’s soul, CandyPenny clicks a pic of this very common occurrence. Check her reporting here!

And housemade vegan cakes! This is the pretty pink lemonade cake. Four layers of yellow cake with ultra-sweet frosting and decorative lemon polka dots. It’s gorgeous as it is a perfect end to a hearty meal.

I couldn’t take enough pictures of this cake. The couple next to us was quite amused.

I must return to Belmar and to the Shore, in general, for many more vegan options await. There’s only so much you can eat in one day. And I believe I met that limit. Goodbye, Jersey Shore!
