One Hundred!

Oooooh! This is my 100th post!!!!! How dandy is that? I’ll show you…

dandies

…This dandy! These are the mighty delicious Dandies marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy. I cannot stop eating them! They are light, fluffy, sweet, vanilla-y, addictive, and just plain amazing. My lack of creative motivation has led me to eat these by the handful one at a time  instead of using them in a baked treat, but it simply doesn’t matter – these are ace. Food Fight will have them available to purchase online soon if you don’t have a place near you that sells Dandies.

I also had the pleasure of indulging in a newish vegan ice cream. Yeah, yeah! It is made with hemp milk and was featured briefly in the latest issue of VegNewsLiving Harvest makes a line called Tempt; they named this frozen treat accurately! I tried the Chocolate Fudge variety and it is incredibly creamy, smooth, chocolaty, and yummy. There are ribbons of fudgy goodness laced throughout each serving. I usually have trouble digesting ice cream and Tempt didn’t give me any troubles! Hooray!!!! There are several flavors to choose from and I look forward to sampling the rest.

Lastly, Tim and I were recently in Seattle to see a concert and we managed to eat at a few places we had never been to on previous visits.

Cyber Dogs Internet Cafe was our choice for a quick lunch. This cafe is located about nine blocks from the famed Pike Place Market. They have an all vegetarian menu with the option to veganize pretty much any item you choose. The space is very tiny, but colorful and comfy. Tim and I sat on a cushy sofa while we waited for the friendly woman working to prepare our food. There are computers with internet for folks to enjoy while they munch happily on their creatively-adorned veggie dogs. The whole space is filled with knick-knacks and dog-themed stuff. We didn’t have to wait long for our order which was a huge bonus since we were hungry and trying to get back to our car before the meter ran out. Another bonus? Takeout orders are placed in biodegradable containers! Here are some photos of the inside of Cyber Dogs, and also our lunch:

Lots of colorful fun stuff inside Cyber Dogs (see the Pound Puppy? Remember those?)

We also walked around Pike Place Market. We stopped at Cinnamon Works for a vegan cinnamon roll (after we had eaten breakfast and Mighty O’s…). The cinnamon roll was quite good, a bit doughy, but sweet and filling. It had a nice maple glaze (I prefer plain) and the person who served us kindly warmed our roll in the oven! Nice! They also had some vegan cookies and muffins in the display case (although they looked a bit dry). Cinnamon Works is spendy, our cinnamon roll was $3.50! But I guess the market is a bit of a tourist trap and that’s the way stuff rolls sometimes.

We also ate at a lovely place (right next door to where we were staying) called Chaco Canyon Cafe. I didn’t take photos, but the food was very simple and tasty. The space is bright, open, and lined with lots of windows. The staff is incredibly friendly and the menu is mostly vegan (with lots of raw options). Again, this place was spendy, but since Tim and I rarely eat out, it was a nice treat. If you find yourself in Seattle, please head over to Chaco Canyon Cafe. Your tummy will be so happy! I had an interesting juice blend called The Boost which was made of apple, carrot, ginger and wheatgrass. I also had a raw porridge which I really enjoyed, a lot. Tim had The Elvis Smoothie (banana and PB) and a tofu scramble sammie. His smoothie was so very, very, very smoooooooooooooooooooooooooooth! The sammie was perfectly seasoned and served on what we think was a sourdough rye. Good stuff.

  1. Oh I forgot…

    Congrats on the posts! It’s a whole lot more fun reading about and looking at your yummy food than it is working.

  2. I’ve never been to Cyber Dogs or Cinnamon Works, so I’ll have to check them out. I really liked Chaco Canyon too!

  3. why must you tempt me so? get it. har-har. congrats on the 100th post, missie. oh I was wondering, if we can, should we bring our bikes along with us when we come crash your party in July?

  4. hey,
    i just wanted to say– that you hardly got to visit seattle as a vegan! there are SO much better places than chaco canyon (ew) and cyber dogs (double ew) http://www.sutraseattle.com –> this is what you are missing out on! and i’m surprised you didn’t hit up cafe flora even. we even have a 100% vegan thai buffet everyday in seattle that is only like 8 bucks at araya’s! damn you need to come back, yes you do!
    :) your fellow veegz,
    seattelite

  5. Ha, that’s such a funny (or Dandy?) coincidence that we both posted these reviews on the same day!

    And I’m dying to learn more about Tempt- I haven’t seen it anywhere, and have only found one tiny mention of it on the official website. Where did you find it?

  6. Living Harvest hemp ice cream!? YES!!! Thanks for the heads-up. That stuff looks incredible! And so does that cinnamon roll. I had my first vegan cinny roll yesterday…oh, ’twas heaven!
    Ooh, and how wonderful would those dandies be on some vegan graham crackers with dark chocolate…

  7. I love that you’re 100 – you look so good! Ha! I’m alway super-excited when I see a Tahinitoo post, so please keep them coming!
    Those schmallows look so good! I was explaining to Guppy what they were the other day – we have them here, but they are So Not Vegan. I may have to make a special order for them. And that cyber café is so cute with all those puppies! And those veggie dogs look so delicious!

  8. hooooooooooooooray for your 100th post, Amy! i love that you’ve filled it with lots and lots of awesome yumminesses! mmmmmmmmm! i totally ordered a ton of those vegan marshmallows from veganessentials and got them in last week – i can’t stop eating them by the handful either! i’d totally pay for $3.50 for that glorious look’n cinnamon roll – and how fantastically awesome is it that Cyber Dogs offers biodegradable containers (and such a fun atmosphere, too!)! i love it! chaco canyon cafe sound excellent as well – that’s pretty sweet that they’ve got some raw options on their menu as well! superw00t!

  9. Congrats on your 100th post! I can’t stop eating Dandies, either. They are sooo good! That cinnamon bun looks extremely amazing, as well!

  10. Oh man, I LOVE Dandies. I sit there with a few on a stick & roast them on my gas stove, eat, repeat!
    I never made it to Cyber Dogs in Seattle, but the Snickerdoodle from Cinnamon Works is pretty good. I didn’t care for the cinnamon roll.

  11. dang i wish they had that hot dog at the stand i went to the other day. I was forced to eat a completely protein free hot dog that they called a “vegetarian”.
    GGRRRRR
