Weekly Eats (and rants!) May 15th

Hey guys! I know it's been a while, but here are some of my eats over the past week (which includes a scathing review of a popular veggie restaurant-- sorry, but I had to do it!).

I tried giving the Van's cinnamon gluten-free french toast sticks another go...


But sadly they were still pretty tasteless with a weird texture. So this was a "no go" for sure!


Luckily their mini chocolate chip waffles were a winner though! :)

Alright, so last Monday I decided to try 'Snice in the West Village (on 8th Ave. at West 4th St.) because I've always heard pretty good things, but had never gotten over there before. I ordered their tofu scramble wrap...


Ok, so this was an ENORMOUS disappointment. And I'm a HUGE fan of tofu scrambles... everything from Amy's frozen ones to the one at Blossom's restaurant, etc. But this was a disaster. Absolutely NO taste. It was so bad I actually got up and left! And I NEVER do this. It was a waste of $6. Especially since nearly every restaurant in the West Village is fabulous... I certainly won't be going back and do NOT recommend this place.

Speaking of Amy's tofu scrambles... I actually came home and made my own lunch of an Amy's tofu pocket scramble, along with a cheese stick and a Mott's peach medley apple sauce (by then I was starving!).


This week I went to the new Limelight Marketplace on 6th Ave. (and 20th St.). They basically took a church and turned it into a mall... Very strange and I wonder if Jesus would approve?! LOL But it's up the block from me none the less, so I had to check it out!

I took a good look around, wasn't impressed (it's more like a rat's maze if you ask me!). However, they did have an awesome sweets section, including the Cupcake Stop. (There are several locations in the city, one is inside the new market.) I got a cookie dough cupcake. This was awesome, and they have so many unique flavors, I'll definitely be back! :)


Today I ran some errands in Union Square and stopped in a nearby Starbucks. I got their protein plate which includes a mini bagel, peanut butter, apple slices, cheese, grapes, and a hard-boiled egg.


While it sounds like a lot, they actually give you very little of everything. I used to get this lunch all the time at the Starbucks in Soho by the school I used to go to. It was better quality then, but it's still a good pick-me-up!

As for Peanut, I got a few pics of him on the top of the laundry today! :)




I told him he looks like a lion on top of the pride! lol

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! I just wish I could get more sleep on mine. :(

Odd -- I checked out that Limelight Marketplace too! ;) It was kind of surreal. And annoying because I apparently can't get Hunter wellies.

I've never been to 'Snice, but I'm sorry to hear it wasn't good! Luckily NYC is full of delicious veggie restaurants, right? And I've never even heard of the Limelight Marketplace, one of the reasons I love NY is because you can find so many new things every day! Hope you have a wonderful week love!!

I've been wanting to try an Amy's tofu scramble! I take it they're good. And I've never had a cookie dough cupcake but that sounds to die for!

Marina said...

Megan ~ Yes both Amy's tofu scramble pocket and her tofu scramble meal are sooo good! :)
