I had a lovely birthday dinner last night at Dirt Candy. It's vegetarian, but they'll make all the dishes vegan. They even ask if you're vegan when they seat you!
We started with the Jalapeno Hush Puppies with maple butter. YUM!Kimchi Doughnuts with watermelon radishes, cilantro and wild arugula
Asparagus Paella with artichokes, morels, saffron tomato broth. The top of the rice was crispy like a rice crispies cake, and when you break it off and it goes snap crackle and pop in the broth!
The ninja had Onion Soup which had cheese, and Crispy Tofu and Broccolini with orange beurre blanc. Yes, the ninja actually chose tofu and he really liked it. The vegetables are great, but the sauces really shine.
Although the desserts at Dirt Candy looked good, there were people waiting for tables and it was super rainy and cold out, so we opted to walk down a few blocks to Lula's Sweet Apothecary.
I had the cookies & cream.
The ninja had the strawberry cheesecake on a sugar cone.
All in all a very good vegan b'day. Cheers!
