If Healthful Essence was more convenient, we’d definitely eat there more often. It’s kind of like a healthier version of Soul Vegetarian. Here’s what we got last trip.
Kevin had the raw lasagna. It was good but could have used some fresh basil and maybe garlic.
Lacking originality, I got rice & peas, collards and BBQ tofu. With a couple of bonus slices of plantain on top.
This time, they had patties, callaloo patties!
Is it wrong that I like mine better? I make the callaloo a little spicy. These are still good though and didn’t require any work on my part.
The internet connection is slow here at the rental in Seattle. So I’m just going to clear out the last few bits off food I uploaded before we left Atlanta to one post so I can make way for the piles of noms had on the trip.
A quick dinner of May Wah chicken legs with buffalo sauce, baked potato and corn.
Thursday and Friday last week I had work meetings at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead. Nothing on the lunch buffet was vegan, but the kitchen whipped this up for me: tofu on a bed of garlicky potatoes and vegetables. It was pretty good!
Thursday night, Kevin stopped by Healthful Essence on the way back into town from Alabama. My plate full of delicious, from two angles. Seriously, you should try this place.
You know where we don’t go enough? Healthful Essence.Vegan Caribbean food and raw items served cafeteria style. We would totally eat here more if it wasn’t a special trip kind of out-of-the-way. At least it isn’t far, but it’s not an area of town we generally have any other business in, the West side. But the folks are really nice and the food is delicious.
This is the $8.xx plate plus a lil something extra. I’ve got BBQ tofu, some black beans and greens. The extra part is the plantains you see on top. Bonus! She also gave Kevin this patty for everyone to share that tasted like Thanksgiving. Have no idea what it was. I’ve had their unfish before and it’s also really good. If you like mock fish stuff. The ginger beer, they make it there, had quite the bite to it so if you are a fan of spicy ginger, get it!
