Something about travel always makes we want to tow the line with the food.  Just to avoid upset tummies and I knew I was going to be heading to the Jivamukti Studio later.  So ended up with a nicely sized Kale Salad.  And below, the "Grain of the Day" with a sundried tomato tapenade.  Gluten Free Polenta.  Loved the salad and the polenta & tapenade combination was really comfort food.  It was healthy (not greasy or heavy) and earthy with subtle flavors.  Really nice for a chilly day.  The funny thing about ordering the "Grain of the Day" is that the waitress (who was a doll and reminded me of one of my favorite Persian friends) wrote on the tab "GOD".

Sacred Chow on Urbanspoon

It's a quaint spot.  It's not full of pretentious nuevo foods, but just simple yet wholesome plant based goodness.  A nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of the Village.  Our food came quickly, yet we didn't feel rushed at all.  I personally can't stand it when they keep coming to clear your plates when you aren't finished eating.  This is a place you can linger with dim lighting.


  1. wow looks amazing!! its my dream to have a vegan cafe one day =)

  2. Wow, they really brightened the place up! It used to be really heavily draped and dark...I used to work right across the street but I've only been in maybe once. I keep meaning to go back, and especially now that you've posted the menu. So glad you enjoyed everything!
