As of late, a bunch of my food and enthusiast friends have been giving their diet an overhaul. Meatless here, dairy deprviation there and even *gasp* abstaining from alcohol. Of course, with my other blog (however slowly it's being updated) I've gotten quite a few inquiries about healthier dishes and places to check out. So more than happy to oblige, and figured I might share with you as well.
It's very satisfying without being heavy, and I love combo between the snappy bite of the wasabi veganaise against the cool, harmonizing broth. And it's great nutritionally too, it's not overloaded with veganaise (just enough to give it a slight tart creaminess) and it has oodles of vegetables. And the flavors are very clean and pure, the broth only has a hint of saltiness, and you can taste the freshness of the individual components. Plus, being a cold noodle dish, excellent meal for those warmer days and nights.
It may be a bit low on protein, but definitely something you can fix there by ordering their fluffy okara cakes (topped with a smidgen more of that addictive veganaise) pan-fried seitan with their housemade yuzu ponzu or barbecue sauces (the latter has a nice tangy-sweet zip!) Or, try one of their more well-rounded and equally tasty bento boxes instead. In any case, it'll surely prove the point that eating healthy doesn't mean crappy too.
