Yum yum yum! On a recent trip to NYC, this boy I know took me to Candle Cafe on third avenue between 74th and 75th. I had a barbequed seitan sandwich on a ciabatta roll, with avocado and (gasm) caramelized onions, and it was gloriously messy in the way that all things delicious usually are. The boy who brought me was a vegetarian, so he got down on the grub, but even our non-veggie friend who was there enjoyed his seitan burger, washed down by an organic beer.
Candle Cafe is a pretty well known hot spot, so I was glad I finally got to check it out. Like normal, I wolfed down my food without taking a photo. I am pretty much the worst food blogger ever. I was also too full of seitan to order a vegan dessert. Sigh, I guess I will just have to go back! Also, cool side note–while creeping about on the Candle Cafe website I read that the founders were able to open the shop with money they won in the lottery! Bangerang, Rufio! I better start buying tickets.
