I have promised some of my blogger friends, especially InCahootsWithMuddyBoots, to highlight vegetarian restaurants that I enjoy. Well, I kept that in mind when I recently visited Red Bamboo.
Red Bamboo has been a mainstay in Greenwich ever since I can remember. I never get tired of visiting this tiny restaurant because the menu options are so varied and the desserts are drool-worthy. I do have to preface my pictures by saying I was so hungry that I couldn’t be bothered with styling my food and the restaurant at night is softly lit above with candlelight at the tables.
My test subject for the evening was Karina, and she has no intention of being vegetarian/vegan. But she was willing to try, cheers to her! I’m my opinion, this is the best restaurant to invite
a steadfast carnivore. For appetizers, we ordered jerk “chicken” skewers which were delicious.
I had a Lambic raspberry ale with my dinner and Karina had a vegan chocolate shake for drinks. And for our entrée, she chose “chicken” Parmesan with garlic bread and I picked fried “chicken” with sweet potato fries and collard greens with veggie ham.
The portions were huge and we had to get the leftovers to go.
I was stuffed but I’ve been here before and I had to get dessert. We shared a huge slice of vegan carrot cake and I couldn’t wait to dig in that’s why the picture isn’t perfect and it was perfect in my belly!
If you are in the Greenwich Village area please do visit this restaurant, you won’t regret it! It’s at 140 West 4th Street(between 6th Ave & Macdougal). Do you ever go to vegetarian/vegan restaurants in your area? If so, is it a favorite of yours? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear about it!
Until our next rendezvous…
