Fooling myself into thinking I was going to make healthy choices that day, I went with the $8 soup and 1/2 sandwich combo:
|The Eightfold Path: "Locally made firm tofu, hoisin sauce, fresh cilantro, fresh mint, match stick carrots, cucumber, crushed peanuts on an Iggy’s baguette"|
To drink with my meal:
|Vermont Maple Soda|
|They called this an Oreo, which may be copyright infringement. I'd call it a Moonporeo to be simultaneously safe and more accurate. Defuckinglicious.|
My americano was decent but a little bitter and burnt. 7/10
|Little Lad's Mud Crackers|
I'll regularly go back to try more fun stuff. I'm saving up my nickels for the $16 jar of pickled green tomatoes.
I was looking at these little cakes from 3 Little Figs they had wrapped up at City Feeds. I asked a guy who worked there his opinion on the best one, and he recommended the chocolate zucchini enthusiastically.
|Cocoa Zucchini Cake with Walnuts (dairy free but with eggs)|
I'm always happy to find dairy free but eggfull treats because I'm not a vegan but am lactose intolerant, and I find eggless goodies tend to be less dense. Sadly, this wasn't really dense anyway. Neither the chocolate nor the zucchini even really had much of a flavor presence, and it was a touch too crumbly and unmoist. This may be because I didn't get to eat it fresh out of the oven, but $3.95 is way overpriced for this thing. City Feeds is losing its charm for me. I get the feeling that the workers there don't have and/or give good and honest opinions about food. Also, they often act a bit snobbish and rude there. Hmph.
Iggy's Sticky Bun - $2.69- mmm so much honey, so many walnut choplets, so dense, so soft, a little too indulgent, but delicious.
