What makes a veggie-lovers heart happier than a Dancing Avocado? Right? We had to check this place out.
I had eaten here before many years ago and I remember liking it- and now I remember why. This place is vegetarian and vegan friendly. Tons of healthy choices on the menu. No worries if you like meat- the Dancing Avocado Kitchen caters to both.
We started with the Tirosalta appetizer- a whipped feta cheese dip with pita bread. It was creamy, tangy and delicious. We needed more of the dip to finish off the pita bread though. I always hate when there is not enough dip and too much bread.
There are plenty of options for the Vegan/ Vegetarian. Chad ordered the Mac Falafel– crispy chickpea cakes with lettuce, tomato, onion and hummus served in a warm tortilla. He was quite happy with this after spending some time debating between the falafel or the black bean burger.
His falafel wrap came with potato taters. Oh boy these were good. They were crispy and seasoned well.
I opted to have the V BLT which was rather interesting- a Vegan Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich with avocado. Though not my most favorite sandwich ever it was pretty tasty. The “bacon” was actually made out of eggplant and made right there on the premises. Though it tasted nothing like bacon (and I don’t think it was intended too) I really enjoyed the smoky flavor. It was almost sort of candy-like and a little chewy. Smoky candy if you can imagine.
My sandwich came with a cup of soup which they gladly substituted with their cucumber salad instead. Cucumbers were right up my alley on a hot summer day at the beach. Ah……
Just on a side note, I also had the Iced Tea of the Day which was a Tutti Frutti Herb the day I was there. Totally tasty. Next time I am going to try something from the juice bar.
There is a lot to look at while you wait for your food. Check out the collection of rubber ducks. Read all the silly signs on the wall. Admire the colorful scenery.
Word about town is that they have also just added some new items to the menu so if you haven’t been here in a while it may be worth a return visit.
