Vegan MOFO, Take 14
I know I wasn’t supposed to be running and nursing my little “injury,” but I could NOT resist in a place like DC.
On Run #2 of my running ban (opps!), I ran to the Washington Monument, around the WWII Memorial, down the reflecting pool, and up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Then I ended right at the door of Cafe Green.
The night before I ate at the sister cafe – Java Green . Java Green was more “fast healthy food” where as Cafe Green was a nice sit down, dinner joint.
At Java Green, I ate the Bimbimbap with mixed grain rice. I had them put extra, extra spicy sauce on it. It was comforting but not as good as the bimbimbap I’ve made with the crunchy rice bottom. YUM.
At Cafe Green, I had the chili. It was DELICIOUS. Partly because it was good, partly because I haven’t had cornbread since I’ve became a vegan over 5 years ago.
This was amazing.
I ate every last bite.
Here is the breakdown of JavaGreen vs. Cafe Green:
Go to JavaGreen if you are in a rush.
Go to Cafe Green if you want to enjoy a dinner out.
Do not take a date to JavaGreen unless it is just for a cup of coffee.
Take a date to Cafe Green.
And while the cornbread is a little harder than I remember cornbread being in my pre-vegan days, it still did my body good.
