My ever-growing list of restaurants to try includes a few vegan restaurants. So when my friend Becca, who’s been a vegan for years, came to visit I was excited to finally try some of these restaurants! On her first night here we met another friend and had dinner at Sacred Chow.

Sacred Chow is a quaint, cozy eatery tucked away on Sullivan Street in Greenwich Village with a just 10-12 tables and one server for the entire restaurant.

The menu is 100% vegan, organic, and Kosher, and also features many gluten free options. Not only that, but they also label sugar free and soy free items on the menu.

To start we shared two small plates from the Specials Menu.

Spicy Japanese Pumpkin Noodles with a ginger peanut sauce.

Cornmeal Crusted Brussel Sprouts with a honey mustard sauce. This was my favorite dish, and I highly recommend you try this if it is on the menu when you go! The Brussel sprouts were perfectly tender with a light coating of cornmeal and a hint of heat.

We also tried a sampler of 3 tapas ($19.50):

Mama’s Soy-Meatballs steeped in a spicy Sicilian sauce. (gf, sf) You would never know these were meatless.

Root Vegetable Latkes served waffle-style, w with sour cream. (gf)

Grilled Nama Gori* – Served with steamed collard greens. (gf, sf)

*Legend has it Nama Gori was invented when a Japanese tofu maker dropped a few blocks of freshly made bean curd in the snow as he walked home one evening. He returned to search for the missing blocks the following morning, only to discover they had frozen solid overnight. Rather than toss the bean curd out, the tofu maker decided to thaw it. He was surprised to find that the texture had changed into a chewy delicacy.

For dessert we shared the Triple Chocolate Brownie ($5 )- Dreamy Dutch cocoa, velvety ganache, and melted dark chocolate. Amazing as a Brownie Sundae, w ice cream, truffle crème, & chopped peanuts. ($3.50, gf)

Sacred Chow serves kosher and non-kosher vegan wines, gluten free beers and cider. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, you can order any Panini on gluten free brown rice tortillas.

The brunch menu only offers 5 items, all of which are gluten free except the French toast.

I've been on a gluten free diet since January 2009. It's been an adventure, and a challenge at times. I love to go to new restaurants and try new foods, and being gluten free can make eating out difficult at times. But I will not let my dietary restrictions get in my way of finding new restaurants and products. These are my stories of being a young women in a big city, eating out and trying new foods, all while NOT eating gluten. Like I said, it's an adventure and you are welcome to come along... Please note that as I try to eat gluten free 100% of the time, my intolerance is not as severe as others so please use caution when dining at restaurants that are not certified gluten free.
