191 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
After I got my tattoo at Gristle Ink, I decided to make a day of it in Brooklyn (especially since I scored free street parking and already paid the insane toll prices).
The perk of Brooklyn is there are a lot of vegan options available. I opted for Bliss as Wild Ginger was too similar to Veggie Heaven, which I have back home (aka Asian Vegan food). Though next time, I’ll definitely give Wild Ginger a try since I love exploring new places.
For an appetizer, we split the Chili Corn Pan (large portion of chili topped with vegan sour cream, pico de gallo and cornbread $7). It was good. They provided us hot sauce which it needed a bit of. The corn bread was pretty good, not as great as non-vegan cornbread that I used to make.
For my meal, I got the Seitan Steak sandwich (homemade seitan with caramelized onions, vegan mayo, and vegan or dairy cheese served on multigrain roll $8). I got it for an extra dollar with salad as my side. The dressing is their Bliss dressing with oil and lemon.
I threw some of my salad greens on it, which only made it better, giving the sandwich a freshness to it.
It was so good and filling. With only half a sandwich, I was completely full. I had to force the other half down my throat because I knew it wouldn’t keep well in my car on a warm day.
