Lulu's Local Eatery

Due to a snow storm last month, we finally got to try Lulu's Local Eatery. I had heard nothing but wonderful things about this vegan restaurant so even though we did see a few flakes at lunch, we made sure not to miss this night.

Our friends were kind enough to point out their favorites and some new menu items and we really wanted to try one of everything. It was nice that some choices came in a "bowl" option or a wrap, which is what my friends got.

I thought I would order a wrap myself but then I saw the "bowls" listed under the Entree section and I chose the Buddha Bowl: udon noodles, organic marinated tofu, stir-fried vegetables, green onion, cilantro, crushed peanuts, black sesame seeds and homemade peanut sauce.

Patience ordered the Spring Roll Bowl: house made crispy cauliflower bites with greens, cucumber, shredded carrot, green onion, cilantro, crushed peanuts, fresh avocado with orange peanut sauce over brown rice.

Both bowls could be made gluten free as well!

The bowls and wraps were quite filling, which again removed any fears that I had about vegan foods. The wraps were chilled while the bowls were served warm.

There is such a wide variety of interesting sounding dishes like the Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger and the General Tso Cauliflower. While it probably won't taste exactly like the original, it's nice to know that it's much healthier.

It was busy on a Friday night, and seating is limited, but once it gets nicer out, you'll be able to sit on the patio. Lulu's is very casual and you had to order from the counter, but a food runner delivers your meal to you.

Also, another large local craft beer list!
