I hope everybody that celebrates it has a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! I'll be at a vegan potluck, so you know I'll be having a good time :).
Earlier this week, we went to Cafe Flora for lunch. If you ever go there, which you should, ask to be seated in the sun room. It is a glassed in room that has a fountain in the middle and lots of plants. The day we went, it was really warm in there, almost steamy - all due to sun power. Very surprising for a November day.
Cafe Flora is a place perfect for special occasions or a really nice dinner. It's a vegetarian restaurant that has a lot of vegan dishes/options.
I had the black bean burger, which was really good, but sort of overly sweet because of the carmelized onions. Andy had the sloppy joe that was really spicy. I think the sweetness and spiciness should have switched places. That said, they were really good. The buns were perfect. They were served with yam fries, which are good, but not as good as french fries - I'm conditioned to love potato fries.
For dessert we split the carrot cake. It was ok. The yellow stuff on the plate is a cardamom sauce. Andy thought it looked like mustard. The frosting had almost no flavor, but the walnuts made up for it. For some reason, all of their frostings taste like that. It's almost best to get an appetizer, salad or soup rather than dessert at this restaurant. Their non dessert food is amazing. You can always go home and eat some cupcakes :).
December: Tubs, Peepa, The Judge, and Chippy. This is the most perfect worm pile that I have ever captured on film.
