Road Trip Vedge: NYC


Atlas Cafe in East Village is a must-eat. For one thing, they carry vegan donuts from Vegan Treats, one of the few items that aren't sold here, and something I seem to miss the way I keep carrying on like I'm a Simpson. Then, they have an unfuckwithable chalkboard that wants you to order everything at least once. Too bad I only snagged the last donut (a lonely sprinkled gem, although they usually have Boston, Coconut, and Oreo Cream varieties), an iced coffee, and a vegan granola muffin to go. I don't deserve my abs.


After enough shopping and exploration to whittle away the day, I ventured to Dojo for the Soy Burger dinner, which was served next to a mound of brown rice and a simple green salad with a bright orange tahini dressing that was so tangy and orgasmic that I thought about sneaking in the kitchen, stealing their batch, and calling it even. However, this was only a stealthy-enough $4-something. Since I had trouble deciding between the soy and the hijiki tofu, I ordered a tofu burg on the side for an extra $2.25. This patty was crispier on the outside, with a creamy tofu and vegetable filling, slathered in barbecue sauce. I paid more attention to this one than the soy burger, which was still quite good and tasted very much like meatless loaf. If anyone has a tahini dressing recipe, I'll let you borrow my soul. I hear you can actually purchase it from Dojo for $3.50 but I didn't investigate.

My Favorite Salad Dressing, probably ever...

try this!
I was looking for the burger recipe

This is close to the dressing from dojo
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/2 tablespoons minced, peeled fresh ginger root
1 small onion
1/2 rib of celery
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup sesame seeds (or Tahini)
1/2 tablespoon ketchup
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup vinegar

Blend it all together- Adding a carrot also works.
