I don't write about foods enough, and I should... Food is one of my biggest pleasures in life, and there is nothing that makes me happier than when I go to a restaurant and discover delicious vegan cuisines.
Today I am going to write about two dishes that I recently had at one of my favorite restaurants in Anchorage, Alaska - Bear Tooth. I am always there. It combines two of my biggest passions into one convenient location - Indie Pub Theatre and food... Delicious Food!!!
I love, love, love Bear Tooth. They have excellent service as well, and to my delight, the staff are very knowledgeable about veganism, which makes my ordering process easier.
So here are the two items I had there and my thoughts on them:
1) The Chilled Avocado-Sweet Corn Soup $9. My first reaction from eating this was shock... because this soup was cold - and up until that point, I had never had cold soup. After the first sip, I got really into it. I could not stop. This refreshing soup is layered with notes of creamy avocado, tangy and garlicky flavors that made me want to eat the bowl. It is THAT GOOD.
2) Southwestern Rice Bowl $11. This dish is my go-to vegan dish for whenever I have a craving for something flavorful, and well, "southwesterny". I veganize this dish by asking for the chicken to be replaced with sautéed tofu, and the flavors become amazing! I still have no idea what seasoning they use for the sautéed tofu, but it keeps me coming back for more, and more, and more!!! When veganized, this bowl becomes a delectable melody of refreshing corn salsa, smoky rice, and beans flavored by yummy spices. This dish makes me so happy!!!
Hungry yet? I am...
