On a recent Sunday afternoon, after an evening of rich food and a few-too-many drinks, we were in need of a light and healthy meal. Flore Vegan Cuisine had been on my to-do list for quite some time and seemed promising.
It was a beautiful, sunny day, and the outdoor patio was crowded. We sat inside at a cozy booth. Next to our table was a display case filled with appetizing vegan desserts and artisan breads.
On the menu were a number of homemade juices and smoothies. I ordered the Fresh Ginger Ale, made with real ginger, agave, and sparkling water. It was sweet and gingery, and reminded me of the ginger beer I used to drink when I lived in London. Eric opted for the Raw Superfruit Smoothie.
I was quite hungry by the time our main courses arrived, and began devouring my meal before I remembered to take photos. I had the Mediterranean Salad, which was similar to a traditional Greek salad, but topped with a mouthwatering scoop of quinoa tabouli and served with a ramekin of creamy hummus.
Eric tried the Basmati Brown Rice Bowl with teryaki seitan. As I was keenly focused on gobbling up my salad, I didn’t get to try any of his meal, but the speed with which he devoured it suggests it was delightful.
After staring at the desserts throughout our lunch, we decided it would be a shame not to try something. We shared a slice of the vegan strawberry cheesecake, which was sweet and surprisingly light.
It was a good experience, and I would definitely return. Maybe next time we’ll arrive early enough for their weekend brunch!
