So, you invested with Uncle Bernie and Auntie Ruth, but you still crave the delectable seitan chimichurri at Candle Cafe and Candle 79. But even if no one madoff with your hard earned dough, now, of course, is not the best time to spend $8 or $9 on an appetizer.
Don’t fret however! When $8 or $9 is your budget for a meal rather than just a bite, you can still enjoy Candle’s citrus-marinated seitan skewers!
In the prepared foods section of the Whole Foods Market in Chelsea, you can get a vegetarian plate with a main dish and two sides for just $7.99 (or $8.66 with tax included). Candle’s seitan will qualify as a main and you can choose two from at least half a dozen other vegan side dishes like white asparagus with wild mushrooms, roasted butternut squash with cranberries, and garlic broccoli rabe to complete your meal.
Unfortunately, this deal is only available at the Whole Foods Market in Chelsea (the deal is $10.99 at other locations) and this location does not have seating. And one more catch, they don’t have the seitan every day, but you can call the store’s friendly customer service staff to check on availability before you head over.
