This place has an incredible menu. I could have eaten just from this one place all week and not gotten sick of it. I get so overwhelmed trying to decide and usually go with the first suggestion I hear, because I want to eat all the things. Can you imagine getting a cookbook and only being able to make one entree and one dessert from it? What torture! How could you ever decide? That's what eating at a restaurant like this only one time is like. But, listening to my preferences, Jenny suggested I try the Green Curry Veggie Dosa, omitting the rice inside it. Actually, there isn't even rice listed in the description, but she works there, so if she says it originally had rice before I asked for its omission, I believe her.
Sara got a classic Sara thing. She prefers cold food--salads with grains and greens and she's really into beets and avocado. The Tri Colored Quinoa she got was so beautiful, check it out.
OH MY GOD, IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT DESSERT. Jenny brought us three desserts to blow our damn minds. First, this raw Living Cheesecake cup, which was just out of this world.
But wait, there's more! So, Jenny told me that Source is owned by people who are from out East, and this is why they've decided to recreate the childhood junk-food favorites of those who dwelled anywhere some 300 miles out along the Atlantic coast: Twinkies, Devil Dogs, and Snowballs. I know that Jenny actually makes the Twinkies herself, and she made that Cheesecake above, but I'm not sure if she makes the vegan versions of the other two.
Onto the Heaven Dog (get it???). Now, OK, obviously, they did not recreate a Devil Dog exactly. Instead, they decided to make it way better by drizzling chocolate all over it! YEAH. The shape is kinda odd. I mean, the original Devil Dogs have thinner chocolate cakes on the top and bottom than this has. The cakes of this are so thick that it has to lay down on its side! There is cream in the middle still. It doesn't even need the cream, though, although I understand that it is required to make this an imitation of a Devil Dog. Every aspect of this took me into junk food paradise. I could remember sneaking these things from the laundry room of my parents' house when I was young and they hadn't yet realized that it's OK for type 1 diabetics to eat sugar. Except that I used to always regret that it wasn't worth the risk just for the crappy, dry, original Devil Dogs, and eventually I decided to stick with sneaking those Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies (uhhh, Source, y u no have those??). But these Heaven Dogs are worth it with the sneaky sneaky. Only I need not sneak, I can enjoy these vegan treats in the open! Isn't adulthood grand?
