There are tons of words I could use to describe this vegan, west-coast restaurant, but I will try to boil it down to one -- amazing. From the customer service to the scrumptious desserts, they quickly won me over.
Friends told me I absolutely had to go there during my first trip to San Francisco in July, because it is "the best vegan restaurant in the country." While, I beleived them, I was a little skeptical about what all the fuss was over.
Then, I had the first bite of my Braza De Reina Tamale, and I got it. I totally got it.
|Here is the description from the menu: chard & corn masa, toasted pumpkin seed, chile poblano & Christmas lima bean filling, sweet corn, roasted pepper & cherry tomato stew, lambsquarter greens, tomato-habanero sauce, avocado, radish & jicama salad, cumin toasted pumpkin seeds.|
There were so many flavors, but none of them competed. They all meshed perfectly, and created the perfect balance.
My friend who I was traveling with and is not vegan or vegetarrian, but was open to trying Millennium during our vacation ordered the Wellington, and said that was fab, too.
If you're astonished that all of this delicious, tasy and well-platted food was all vegan, dessert will totally blow your mind. I certainly blew mine!
Vegan. Yes, vegan. And, absolutely amazing!
Oh, and of course what meal wouldn't be complete without a decaf cappuccino!
Millennium is easily in my top 5 list of restaurants to eat at. My only complaint? It's so far away!
