Hijiki Salad

I just came back from a lunch with a friend at Cafe Orlin. A nice surprise. Hijiki Salad came with breaded tofu, watercress and avocado. A nice quiet dressing binds everything. Vegetarian Combo was scrumptious. Even the plain looking rice had a nice touch. Was it coconut milk or broth? I had Iced mint tea to wash it all down. She wanted to eat outside to de-freeze from her ice cold office. A perfect laid back cafe to have a vegetarian lunch. I will come back here.

Breakfast: Coffee, MIxed Berry Almond Milk Shake

Lunch: Cold Sesame Noodles, Lentil Burger with Tomato and Pickled Onion

Dinner at L’ybane: Moussaka, Baba Ganoush, Grilled Asparagus, Iced Mint Tea—their choice of music while we were there was unbearable and too loud. Otherwise, it’s a charming wine bar with a few good vegetarian friendly appetizers in middle of Times Square.
