|Feijoadinha with Smoky Tempeh|
Stew of smoked roasted tempeh, black beans, chayote, and potatoes orange-lime broth. $19
I had no idea what this was but I did find this on the Vegetarian Times website:
Feijoada (fay-zhwah-duh), the national dish of Brazil, is traditionally made with slow-cooked black beans and lots of meat.
This dish was a nice stew with a background chili smoky flavor. The chips on top added a nice crunch and I highly recommend ordering a side of bread for sopping. The vegetables were cooked to that wonderful place between too much crunch and too soft with a very nice mouthfeel. It's a chunky dish and the taste memory will linger long after the bowl is empty ... and all the bread is gone.
|I swear if you didn't know this wasn't cheese ... well, you'd never know. The combination of cheesy cake and strawberry sauce and mint reminded me of why I can't order desserts. I just do not stop if there's anything left on the plate.|
|I don't know how I could have this put in front of me and taken the time to get the camera, turn on the camera, take the picture, have the flash not go off and then retake the picture. I must really be getting this impulse thing under control!|
