Miami!!

Last weekend me and some lovely ladies had a super fun trip to Miami! SO much fun, beach time, dinners and dancing! Love my ladies!!!

The Ladies!!!

Of course I did my homework before going to find out some good vegan options for us 🙂 There were many options, so awesome! We only got to hit up a few, but the ones we did were super great!

The first night we went to The Standard for dinner. Although the service was noticeably super slow, we had a great meal outside right on the water! Fabulous! Too bad The Standard NYC’s menu is not vegan friendly at all 😦

We ordered the Mezze Plate (Hummus, Baba Ghanoush, Chick Peas & Olives) to share and then I had the deelish Soup (carrot and coconut – indian spiced) and the amazing Living “Lasagna” Terrine, yum!!! For me the highlight is typically the dessert and I was very pleased to have the Vegan Ding Dong! (see pics below)

Also on the menu: Sprouted Grains & Organic Greens Salad  Quinoa and Lentil Live Sprouts and Mixed Greens, Avocado, Julienned Vegetables and Carrot-Ginger Vinaigrette,
Vegan Fritto Misto  Chick Pea Panisse, Baby Artichokes, Mushrooms,
Marinated Tofu + Quinoa with Dried Fruit + Raw Coconut Chutney

Soup du Jour (Usually Vegan) (carrot and coconut)

 

Living “Lasagna” Terrine Served Cold; Cashew Nut Cheese, Raw Tomato Sauce, Nut & Veg “Sausage”, Squash “Pasta”

The next night we had the most amazing meal at Hakkasan!! There was plenty of food for the non-veggie people but for me; we started with the Wild mushroom lettuce wraps and the veggie Dim sum platter. Then we had Tofu claypot in black bean sauce, Stir-fry lotus root and asparagus and lily bulb in black pepper and Stir-fry seasonal Chinese vegetable fried rice. I had never had lily bulbs before and I just Loved them! What an amazing meal!!!! I only got to take a few pictures because we were having the best time so pictures took a back seat 🙂
