I'm in NJ now for some early holiday revelry, but before I left SF, I made the rounds to some of my favorite places. As you may already know, one of my go-to spots for a healthy and delicious meal is Samovar, and they delivered as usual.
There are many vegan options at Samovar, but that right there is the Moorish Service, which includes edamame hummus, eggplant dip, grilled veggies, and marinated tofu over greens. The tofu is slightly sweet from the marinade and pairs well with the bitter greens and dips. Plus there are mint-stuffed dates for a mini dessert, and it comes with scrumptious mint tea. All in all, it's one of the best light meals in the city. I love it.
Even better? Our server told us Samovar will soon be replacing their tofu with local tempeh. Apparently the tofu is the only item on the menu that isn't local, and so they're changing it out. Sounds good to me, and gives me even more incentive to go back. See you there!
Up next, a new-to-me and uber tasty spot in the East Bay. Stay tuned....
