As much as I love sweets and pastries, I genuinely love veggies. I know, it’s a weird combination…I love them separately, but equally. Just as excited as I get in a candy store, my eyes light up with a buffet of fresh, delicious vegetables. To get your fix, there’s Mulberry & Vine in TriBeCa.
With quick, prepared foods being the focus, you can buy sides or create a meal. And although you haven’t transported to Portland, everything here local, seasonal, organic, pesticide-free, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free. Oh, and delicious.
There’s a great focus on everything being spiced and seasoned just right without using fats and oils. With everything so flavorful, you might just forget that you’re eating healthy.
I went for a 3 cold sides combo. First, I chose their beets with red chile flakes, pomegranate, cilantro. These were sweet, with the littlest bit of tartness, and then you get a nice light spicy finish. Next, I had the carrot slaw with coriander, jalapeño, cilantro. I really liked this one, it had a great texture, a nice hint of vinegary flavor and the perfect dash of cilantro and heat. A really nice sweet and slight spice combination. Lastly, I had their roasted cauliflower with housemade green sriracha. The cauliflower had a great roasted flavor, savory, and the green sriracha really brought it home. In fact, the citrusy, spicy, pesto quality of their sriracha could pretty much be its own side, it’s that good.
