Organic Avenue

Wanting a healthy lunch to take to the park, hubby and I decided to try Organic Avenue. The one near us is across the street from Blossom du Jour, so we have passed it many times.

Passing it up will not be happening in the future. The small space is lined with grab and go fresh juices, raw wraps and soups, and other sandwiches and soups.

We selected a variety of things that included a wrap, a raw wrap, spicy avocado soup, kale chips, popcorn, wheatgrass shot, and an almond butter and jelly half sandwich. Every bite was delicious. Although hubby said his raw wrap needed more substance to keep him full. My wrap was delicious and the avocado soup yummers.

Organic Avenue gets five out of five vegan cupcakes. I loved every healthy bite and am considering their juice detox. It doesn’t have any pineapple, which most I have seen do. I’m allergic to pineapple. I will absolutely return to Organic Avenue. Everything is vegan and there are multiple locations around Manhattan.


Seasoned Vegan in West Harlem

I just had the yummiest of meals. Seasoned Vegan lives in East Harlem of Manhattan in a cute area of town with lots of friendly people. It’s easily reached by the 2 or 3 trains. We totally pigged out.

We started with a stuffed avocado. A raw dish filled with delicious flavors.


We then each ordered an entree that comes with two sides and a green salad.


A perfect combination of sweet and tart greens. Hubby ordered the “crawfish” with spiced fries and macaroni and cheese. I selected the special of gingered chicken and parsley potatoes and macaroni and cheese.

Oh so yummy. A spot on “soul food” meal. Somehow we had room to try dessert. It was worth every bite. I picked an extreme chocolate cupcake to be turned into a cupcake sandwich with vanilla ice cream. Hubby did the same with a black and white cupcake. Hubby also ordered a strawberry smoothie made with ice cream.

Seasoned Vegan gets five out of five vegan cup cakes. We loved every bite and will absolutely return in the near future. When in New York City, this is a must stop.
