Bridge 1On Saturday I was invited to a baby shower in Brooklyn. Because I’m still a little unstable on my feet, I convinced Dennis to drive me with the promise of yummy vegan food waiting for us on the other side of the bridge. (Actually bridges in this case.) For today’s What I Ate Wednesday I’m going to show off some of what we ate.

 

Tempeh WingsWe started at Champs Diner. I have only been there once before, and it was actually before they became a diner – when they were just a bakery. It’s a cute little restaurant with a 50s diner look to it and a menu to match. We started with Buffalo Tempeh, which was crispy on the outside, spicy all over, and oh so delicious.

 

CheesesteakIt was really difficult deciding what to order. Should I get a breakfast dish? A big messy sandwich? A nice juicy veggie burger? In the end I ordered Philly Cheese Steak, which was way too much for one person. Half of this came home with me.

 

Biscuits and GravyDennis had biscuits and gravy, which was a favorite of his growing up. It’s hard to come by on menus here on the East Coast, so he orders it whenever he sees it.

 

BrownieI got a cheesecake brownie to go. This was so moist and fudgy that it took me two sittings to eat it!

 

DunwellAfter Champs, we went to Dunwell Donuts for dessert. Dunwell has a cute old timey ice cream parlor look to it, and I wanted to move in.

 

ShakeI had a butterfinger milkshake.

 

DonutDennis had a glazed donut. I love all of the different fancy flavors of donuts that Dunwell offers, but Dennis prefers the plain glazed. He can be weird sometimes.

 

Shop UpWe also stopped at Pine Box Rock Shop for the monthly Vegan Shop-Up. We picked up goodies to go from Lagusta’s Luscious, Cake Thieves and Meow Meow Tweet.

 

Clementine BakeryAt the baby shower were were fed all sorts of yummies from the Cinnamon Snail, so we weren’t hungry when we left, but we knew we’d need dinner when we got home. We stopped at Clementine Bakery and picked up sandwiches to go, but apparently I deleted the photo from my camera without saving it. (The perils of being a food blogger!) Dennis had a BLAT, which was made with tempeh bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato and I had The Schmancy, which was baked and seasoned tofu, pesto, spinach, avocado, tomato, and hollandaise sauce served on a rosemary roll. Both were super delish!

 

 

Bridge 2We headed back to Jersey with full bellies and a car full of goodies for later!
