Nice Lunch at Cafe Orlin

Hijiki Salad

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.

January 19th Menu

Carrot Mango Soy Shake

Carrot Mango Soy Shake

Breakfast: Coffee, Carrot-Mango-Soy Milk Shake—I’m looking for a new great shake. This needs more kick. I added some lemon juice to make it better, but this is still not a hit.

Late Lunch at Spice Cove: Kashmiri Eggplant, Cove Bhaji Poori, Chicken Pakora—do not be afraid. I didn’t eat the little chicken tikka piece inside of the pakora. They were deep fried chickpea balls. I liked all of them. At a new Indian restaurant, I often order an eggplant dish or a malai kofta if they have it. Cove Bhaji Poori was a mixed vegetable curry in a puffy pastry. A nice little find in the neighborhood. 🙂

Supper: Green Drink (Kale, Cucumber, Green Apple, Apple Juice), Baked Sweet Potato—lunch was so late and rich, I just wanted this much for supper.
