Happy New Year, Super Vegans!
The LA SV HQ packed-up the ol’ Prius and headed north for the holidays. We ate a lot of truly delicious things along the way. Here’s our foodiary:
First stop was Sunnyvale, CA. We celefeasted at Great Vegi Land, whose owner stayed open late just for us, so we ordered half the menu! This is the kind of vegan restaurant that also abstains from onions and garlic, two of my favorite things:
We ate until all the food was gone at Merit Vegetarian, my fav:
We left Sunnyvale and continued north to Hiouchi, where the food paled in comparison to the trees. We went on a hike through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and found Grove Of The Titans, a secret trove of trees the size of skyscrapers.We actually had a couple other dishes, but they were so good I forgot to photograph them!
Then our pilgrimage to vegan Mecca began: PORTLAND!
We had sweet and savory vegan waffles from The Heart Cart:
We were Hungry Tigers Too!:
We had Chili Pie at The Bye And Bye:
And a Brussel Sprout Bowl, too.
We had approximately 4 doughnuts each at Voodoo Doughnut:
Check out some video of their revolving doughnut display of doom!
We finished-out 2012 with two exceptional meals, the first was at Blossoming Lotus:
And the second was at the dimly lit and hard to photograph Bamboo Sushi:
An amazing way to ring in the new year!
We started 2013 off right with some pizza at Sizzle Pie:
Sadly, we had to leave Vegadise (vegan paradise) and begin the long journey home. Don’t worry Portland, Jason and I will be back to eat the rest of you during the Vida Vegan Con in May! There was some emergency Taco Belling, but there was also this lovely Summer Harvest Salad (in the middle of winter) with oriental sesame dressing at the Black Bear Diner in Mt. Shasta:
And a tasty lunch at The Plum Cafe in Sacramento.
And after approximately 80,000 hours in the car and one last run for the border, we made it home only to find that our waistlines hadn’t.
