People. Do you like veggies? Do you like cute? Do you like yum? Go to Ambrosia (facebook page here). I live mere blocks away from this place and I had never been there before… tragedy! A friend and I went for lunch this week, and I fell in love with it.
Everything is vegan, raw, mostly organic, mostly local. (Later in the winter they may do a few cooked vegan dishes.) Everything is made fresh, and when we went, there was only one cook, so it took a little while for our food to be made. But I’m perfectly okay with that, if it’s being made fresh.
The place itself is super cute. Pretty light fixtures…
Pretty food. This was my signature kale salad… kale, hemp seed, avocado and tomato with a super-tart vinaigrette. It was a plate full of crunchy-fresh-tasty-goodness.
This was my friend’s Thai noodle bowl – zucchini “noodles” with a creamy coconut-ginger sauce, veggies and chile oil. She let me taste it, and it was fantabulous.
We both had watermelon-basil aguas frescas, which, of course, rocked. They were blended fresh when we ordered them.
And we had to have dessert – chocolate coconut macaroons. Mmmm.
Here’s the basic menu (though there is also a specials board that changes frequently):
I can’t wait to try the lasagna, made with zucchini noodles, and the crepes. And the pizza. And what was really cool was that after we ate, I wanted to go for a walk. I wanted to keep eating veggies. I wanted to take care of my body. But then it was dinnertime and I ate pork belly and osso bucco. Such is life. 😉

Heyyy, I love your new look! The banners are really cute. Ambrosia looks awesome – is this one of the rare restaurants that you went to NOT for the book? I hope it’s going well!
Thanks! Actually, it was for the book. But it was still good. 🙂
Looks like a great little place.. love the liberal avocado usage.
Yep – avocado is the bomb.
I love making zucchini noodles! and that kale salad looks super yum.
I’m seriously considering getting one of those spiral-cut-noodle-making-things for the zucchini…
looks so yummy! zucchini noodles sound erally interesting. i love swapping veggies for pasta. i use cauliflower in my mac + cheese recipes. it’s such a nice change.
Ooh, so you just leave out the pasta and use… steamed cauliflower? Do tell!
actually, you don’t steam the cauliflower first. you just cut up and mix in with cheese, wee bit of cream and extra spices. i’ll email it to you and you can check it out. : )
Oooh, please do! That sounds delicious.
