I took myself on a date to Fatty’s & Co. in Eagle Rock having heard it’s an awesome vegetarian cafe. Good news… it’s true!
I started with their soup of the day, a bean and vegetable soup which was basically a minestrone without noodles, topped with pesto. Very tasty.
My main dish was the Potato Skin Tacos: “Organic potato skins made crisp and filled with fresh edamame, mango, carrots, onions, celery and ground veggie crumbles saute in our south of the border spices. Served with a golden-brown potato-red bell pepper cake with creamy cilantro sauce, Martin’s mildly spicy tomatillo salsa and radish sprouts”.
As you can see the presentation was stunning, and the taste was equally delightful. The taco filling was really good, a meaty texture and good taco flavor but still retaining the crispness and freshness of the vegetables it consisted of. The potato-bell pepper cake was also great, perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and yummy on the inside. The sauce and both salsas brought it all together and made this dish not only delicious but also fun to eat.
And what would a date with oneself be without not having to share dessert with anyone? This was the apple pie with vegan vanilla ice cream. Awesome. And all mine.
