Dessertz 2015

First of all I'M A DOT COM AND IT FEELS SO GOOD. *gets down*

Also...sorry about the ads I have to post on my website...but I know you guys will forgive me soon bc I'm about to change your damn life. With...desserts!!!

Ok y'all. I'm about to lay some knowledge on you. I ate a lot of places this last year and wanted to pull the best of the best out of the foods so you get the down and dirty version of where to eat. I'll post later about general dope meals I've eaten in the last year as well...but I wanted to center this entry around my favorite food group....DESSERT!!!

Ok. So here's what you do/where ya you go:

First go to Duluth Grille (in Duluth) for their chocolate avocado ice cream (comes w/a snicker doodle cookie):




















Then get your booty over to Whole Foods (downtown Mpls) and try their sorbetto:




















And then! If you're still hankering', give Suzie V Homemaker a ringading and order some dessert from her. This writer is knowledgeable that Suzie V has made things like vegan Cherpumple (google it), vegan unicorn poop cookies (again, google it), and creations like this here cookie dough cupcake:


That's a wrap on 2015 desserts, y'all. Make sure you get to these desserts in your collective mouths at some point in the very very near future. 

I'm out!

Holy buckets.

Lookyyy what I made!!!:


You guys, vegan meringue is officially a thing. How exciting is that?! I used to bake vegan stuff for a living and tbh hadn't done much baking in a while. That there is a dark chocolate meringue pie and its total meringue-y goodness sent me into a blissful sugar coma (that eventually induced a nightmare but whatevs I can deal) and also, it's super effing pretty, am I right? Yum.

Ok ok...so I also ate places too. I lead a Minneapolis Vegan Meetup Dine Out recently at Sen Yai Sen Lek (NE rep'in! Whaaaat) and ate these delicious thingies:



Ok so here's the thing...I love this place. They have a separate vegan/vegetarian/gluten free menu if you ask them. I got the mango curry thing and for dessert the banana coconut rice dessert thing. Everything there is pretty much stellar tho so go and gives them yer monies, yo. I would highly recommend the above dishes but I tell you...I was drooling over every body else's dish, as per usual. 

Get therrrrrrrrrrrrre. Yas.

I call this entry "Noms, chapter 59,386":

Yooooooooo what's good.

You KNOW WHAT LET ME ANSWER THAT QUESTION FOR YOU. But first!

Sometimes I host a Minneapolis Vegan Meet-up Dine Out. And we go to delicious places around the Mpls/StP area. And we eat food and general merriment ensues. It's a good time and you should join meeeeeeeeeeeeeee. 

So. Food and stuff. I got you. Here's some great places to get some bomb India-inspired cuisine.

I recently went to Namaste Cafe and holy crap. Just...just look at the pics ok? Pretty sure I don't have to break this down much for you:








































Ok so from top to bottom, let's do this! For the appetizer, me and mother dearest shared some spicy potatoes, which are a crowd favorite-slightly crunchy and perfectly spiced. Next we got the mango coconut curry with tofu-sweet and spicy! And then last but not least, the coconut carrot creme brûlée, which is always a great way to end a meal (i.e. very full). Namaste is good for many reasons, such as: romantic place to bring a first date (twinkly lights), vegan stuff is labeled on the menu, that there coconut creme brûlée, the chai tea, etc etc. Woop!

Ok, next. Bombay Bistro has a lunch buffet that is so freaking tasty and all-you-can-eat-y, I can't even. I told that to the guy running the joint after my meal and he was all like girl, 















and then all of sudden, I could. Magic/sorcery!

Ok! 





















Here's is all the tasty-looking stuff that's vegan in the buffet. There's probably more there during the lunch buffet (for less than $15 all you can eat), but I barely survived this buffet because EVERYTHING. Literally everything was on point so hard I almost stabbed myself w it. It's also pretty central in downtown Mpls-get it! Also ask the ppl there what is vegan-they're super friendly and helpful. 


Ok Fasika. I don't know how I went so long without trying your cuisine, but a couple weeks ago, I gave up the fight to resist your charms. This here is the veggie sampler (all vegan, with my friends lovely finger in the shot):




















This place is in ye old StP and it is totally worth the jaunt. Some of the stuff on this plate was totally waaay spicy, like I likes it. Get this, you will not be disappointed!!

Ok guys, I'm srsly stuffed. Jk *goes to Dancing Ganesha for the gobi manchurian and stuffs face more* (also, go there bc it is bomb food too)

I'm out!!! *waddles away*
