- I come here every now and then since it's near where I work..I usually get the Soba Noodle Salad or the Mexican Wrap. They're both tasty but for the prices...you really don't get much food and I'm ALWAYS still really hungry afterwards. Also, the majority of their Soy Chicken has either whey or egg in it.(Most of the waiters are pretty knowledgeable about the ingredients of their dishes,so I'd recommend asking before ordering as most of the items on the menu aren't labeled whether they're vegan or not)
Review by turtledog on August 1, 2008:
- My husband and I had dinner at The Good Health Cafe in NYC. We went for an early dinner so we had the place to ourselves. If you don't know where the cafe is, you could easily walk right past it. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, very low-key. They dimmed the lights as it hit the dinner hour and soft music came on. The service was very friendly and the waiter didn't rush us at all. We like to eat our appetizers before deciding what we want for dinner and that was fine with them. The waiter checked often to see if we needed anything and if everything was to our liking. When we were done, no one brought the check until we asked for it. We felt like we could have stayed there for hours.
We had appetizers of soft tacos with vegetarian chili, soy cheese, dairy free sour cream, and guacamole and another that was called "soul chicken" but was soy, not chicken, in bbq nuggets that looked and tasted sort of like chicken. YUM! Both were delicous, hot and obviously homemade on the spot.
For entrees, my husband had a Middle Eastern Plate of falafel, hummus, tabouli, pita chips, tahini, and carrot ginger salad. He loved it. I had the black bean veggie burger with veggie bacon and soy cheese on a whole wheat bun with guacamole, dairy free sour cream, vegan mayo and bbq sauce. It was soooo good and perfect since we just became vegetarian and this let us have the kinds of foods we are used to but without the meat. The Red Zinger iced tea was also delicious.
My husband had a dessert of blueberry flan but I just had coffee. They also serve free range chicken and lots of fish choices but willingly accommodate vegetarians and vegans. The breakfast/brunch menu looks incredible. Oh, and the prices are beyond reasonable. Our bill, after all this food, was only $41!!!!
We will definitely go to this place again. Makes me wish I lived in the city again.
