New Experience (Restaurant) : Detroit Vegan Soul ❤

I recently decided to treat myself to a fancy lunch which led me to the cutest little Vegetarian Soul Food Restaurant here in Detroit, Detroit Vegan Soul. They have two locations one near my work and another near my home which is absolutely amazing.

I chose to visit the location near my home and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant had a really nice vibe, it was cute and cozy, and the staff was friendly which is always a bonus.

I had visited their website menu prior to going to the restaurant to get a feel for what they offer and instantly fell in love with Everything on the menu. I ultimately decided to try the Fried Tofu “Catfish” Dinner.

The dinner came with 4 pieces of Fried Tofu “Catfish”, Vegan Tarter Sauce, 2 Hush puppies, Red Skin Potatoes & Onions, and a Broccoli/Corn Medley. Everything was absolutely incredible. I must give a big kudos to them.. That Fried Tofu was Bomb! I’ve learned a neat little trick on how to make delicious Tofu (recipes coming soon) however, after trying this I apparently still have a lot to learn.

Overall, I loved everything about the experience and I now have a new fave place to visit that’s close to home. ❤

New Food Experience: Veggie Bibimbap

Making the decision and commitment to live a healthy Vegetarian life has been so exciting! Everyday is a new experience. A little over 3 weeks in and I feel absolutely incredible.

Today, I tried Bibimbap a Korean Veggie Bowl with Rice, Roasted & Sauteed Veggies, topped with a fried Egg and Spicy Kochujang Sauce.

When I tell you this dish gave me life… I mean it gave me my whole entire life!

This dish was rich and flavorful and contained an explosion of flavors from sweet to spicy, with the perfect hint of salty from the seaweed. The Vegetables were made to perfection… There was Spinach, Broccoli, Zucchini, Squash, Lima Beans, Cabbage, and strips of Seaweed Wrap. This was different from pretty much anything that I’ve ever eaten. I did really enjoy the dish overall and am super inspired to try my hand at recreating this at home. I can’t wait to try it and share the recipe. Stay posted to see how it turns out.
