restaurant review: bliss cafe in brooklyn, ny

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.

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.
