what up, new york! vegan pizza day just got a little bit longer for you guys because strong hearts cafe in syracuse is celebrating early this year on friday june 29th! they’ll be offering some new one time only pizza specials just for that day, so be sure to get over there and take advantage! (i have never tried the pizza at strong hearts cafe, because i’ve never been to syracuse, but my friend schramm says it’s the best ever. and he knows pizza.)
lula’s sweet apothecary in manhattan makes undoubtedly the best vegan ice cream i’ve ever tasted. recently at their shop, i ate the sundae pictured above: cake batter soft serve, 1 scoop of cookies and cream ice cream, chocolate chips, hot fudge, whipped cream, and (of course!) a cherry on top.
i know i tend to throw superlatives around like i’m trippin’ (i can think of at least 5 BEST vegan pizzas i’ve ever eaten, and i know i refer to several edibles as the “most awesome food” ever), but lula’s is truly unmatched. they kill all restaurant ice cream competition, as well as the store-bought brands. plus, their parlor is like some kind of crazy vegan time warp: it’s in the future because it’s vegan and super cool—-yet, it’s in the past because they have so many old schooly items on their menu (egg creams, flavored sodas)! pinch me.
trust me, trust me, trust me. if you like ice cream, hit up lula’s any and every time you’re in NYC. the toppings list is staggering, the ice cream is phenomenal, and the place has charm.
indian plate special at candle cafe in NYC: eggplant seitan curry, yellow split pea dal, yellow basmati rice, chutney, cabbage salad and parata bread.
