Block 16

I was in Omaha a couple of weeks ago for work and decided to stop by Block 16 for a quick bite. Block 16 opened after I left Omaha, so this was my first visit there. 

They offer at least three different vegan sandwich options (a reuben, a philly and a gyro) on their normal menu, along with a vegan monthly special. This month it was the Peanut Butter Burger, with chunky peanut butter, celery slaw, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomato and pickles. It was seriously good and I highly recommend it.
And I loved this picture of a potato and all of the ways it can be prepared...normally it's a picture of a pig or a cow showing where bacon comes from.

Last week, Heath and I stopped by Vareli on the Upper West Side for an al fresco snack. They have a really great cauliflower dish that I love. 

Flash Fried Cauliflower with tahini, chili, lemon juice and sage. The lemon is so bright against the warm crispy cauliflower and the tahini is a great complement. I highly recommend it.

La Esquina Corner Deli

A couple of weeks ago, I stepped out of the office for a quick bite and stumbled upon La Esquina Corner Deli in Soho.
It's the perfect spot for lunch with great outdoor seating.
They have Acelgas tacos, with spinach, giant beans, pico de gallo and salsa verde, just make sure to tell them you're vegan so there's no cheese sprinkled on top. Guacamole would make these even more awesome.
