I usually start with a picture of food or the outside of a restaurant, but this little mason jar of flowers made me happy from the moment I sat down at Sun in Bloom. And so it must set the mood for this blog post, which is indeed a happy one!
Wandered into Sun in Bloom on Saturday, March 17th, also known as St. Patty’s Day. Let me tell you, I will take this green vegetable juice over green beer any day. It tasted like liquid veggies of course, but in a very smooth and pleasing way. I wanted to steal it away from Mr. Yummy Brooklyn, who was kind enough to be sharing it with me from across the table. Next time I’m getting my own and I’m just going to dive in.
I had a “BLT” for brunch – shitake bacon, lettuce, tomato on a sprouted wheat wrap with some greens and butternut squash hash on the side. The shitake bacon really surprised me because it had a VERY bacon-like texture and taste. I stopped eating meat a year ago, so it’s been awhile since I’ve tasted anything quite so crunchy, smokey, bacon-y. I really liked it and devoured the wrap along with everything else on my plate.
Mr. Yummy Brooklyn had the Herbacious Green Pesto Scramble, a special inspired by St. Patty’s Day. It was a generous serving of tofu, cauliflower, brussels, potatoes, quinoa, black beans and sundried tomato walnut pesto. We liked it very much and I was even moved to make a tofu scramble at home the next morning. Victory! Though I definitely need to invest in a tofu press.
I’m really eager to go back to Sun in Bloom, a place that really lives up to it’s name – from the blooms decorating the table tops, to the healthy and delicious food. I have a feeling that if I ate this way more, my body would thank me and I’d shine a little brighter myself.
The rest o’ the pictures are here.
