The Chef: Colleen and Herbivore
The Menu: A marinated kale salad with soy chicken, plus fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and lemon
The Goods: I knew what was in store this afternoon, so I had to keep lunch healthy today. Tomorrow is VN editor Jennifer Chen's birthday, so we celebrated with a homemade vegan German chocolate cake (see below) that was consumed in minutes. But getting back to lunch, we're so fortunate to have the always-reliable Herbivore restaurant just minutes from the VNHQ. With cocoa buttercream, pecan-coconut filling, and chocolate cake on the horizon, I opted for the marinated kale salad with soy chicken. And, as always, it was delicious. Are you in or around San Francisco tonight? Head over to Martuni's for Vegan Drinks! Sponsored by VegNews and Vegansaurus, there will be drink specials, vegan popcorn, and lots of great people. Happy Thursday!
VegNews staffers devoured this multi-tier vegan German chocolate cake. We love birthdays around here!
