Tonight I had the pleasure of finally meeting this lovely friend.
Miss Liz and I have been chatting now for about three years and it was wonderful to finally put a face to a name. Of course she’s just as sweet as you would imagine and we had a fantastic dinner at none other than Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco!
This place has been sitting on my soul for years, ever since I saw an ad for it in a vegetarian magazine back when I was in high school. I’ve been dying to go but never really had a reason to until now. I mean it only seemed right that we go here when VeggieGirl was in town, no?
The menu looked incredibly interesting and was full of items I could not pronounce, which made me all the more intrigued.
Right when we sat down, they brought out their multigrain bread with white bean spread (the spread of the day). I inhaled a few pieces because it was 5:45 and I was about to eat my arm off.
And, for my entree, I ordered the first thing on the menu—the zucchini uttapam. I mainly ordered this because I had no earthly idea what it was and just liked to think about and say the word “uttapam”.
It was a marvelous creation! On the bottom was some sort of delicious creamy spinach (but without cream because this restaurant is 100% vegan), topped with some sort of delicious zucchini pancake, topped with some sort of delicious Indian spiced tofu and some delicious coconut-y rice-like creation on the side.
It was delicious.
The only qualm I had was that I thought the spice mixture on the tofu was a little too much. It was sort of a thick spice “paste” and just tasted a tad too heavy on the seasoning. Other than that, it was perfect in my mind.
We pondered the dessert menu but then decided just to eat the chocolate bars I brought us in my purse. And then I made my way back to my Santa Rosa hole.
Time to go give Dexter a flute concert. If you haven’t read my latest True/Slant article on buying organic meat, you can find it here. What are your thoughts on organic meat? I have to say, reading books like Fast Food Nation and watching films like Super Size Me and Food, Inc really changed my perspective. What about you??
