And when all aspects of a dining experience come together delightfully, I make a point to mention it. In fact, precisely because I am so attuned to service, I believe it is all the more sincere when I say that it is good, great, outstanding even.
And at Sacred Chow, Eli and Brian are all that and more. Just as Cliff and Dino are from behind the scenes, these gentlemen exude warmth and genuine graciousness on the front lines of the dining room. As a complement to the spectacular grub, their service makes our dining experience infinitely more enjoyable than ever before; you just can't get any better than a meal at Sacred Chow. Thanks for making us feel so welcome!
Some recent noshes:
root vegetable latkes with Indonesian date butter:
sunflower lentil pate with crostini:
(from the day's special tapas- bean of the day) Daal Makhani: "tiny little French lentils simmered in a stock spiced with tomatoes, cumin seed, white mustard seed, coriander seed, fennel seed, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, clove, and a hint of coconut milk for creaminess", served over brown rice.
A friend's power bowl lunch special- cannelini beans with escarole, collards, and brown rice.
A new favorite amongst my
No matter what, Chow has the best kale around. But, I'm still a staunch dijon marinated raw kale fan. Here it is with (from the day's special tapas- grain of the day) quinoa and marinated fennel. Team dijon!
Chocolate “Nutella” Creme Torte: with "chunks of toasted almond & almond butter folded into Chow’s house-made chocolate creme; baked in a flaky pastry". This dessert comes in a host of variations (pistachio, almond, peanut butter, etc.); try them all without hesitation.
Peppersteak hero: "grilled seitan strips, peppers, onions, & cheese, served on whole wheat baguette [MVG and I shared the wrap version], with a side of home fries"
Souper hero special: half hero and small salad- MVG's BBQ seitan hero: "chunky seitan & onions in Thai BBQ sauce" with his preferred kale Caesar.
My souper hero special: shredded tofu spa salad hero "light & creamy tofu salad, dill soy mayonnaise, mixed greens" with the far superior dijon marinated kale substituted by special request <3!
Chocolate truffle cake: "dense, rich, chocolate cake filled with raspberry ganache and topped with chopped pralines" All I can say about this cake is that you need to eat it immediately, if not sooner.
