Things have been sort of weird lately. And when I say weird, I mean, let's not talk about it. Today was a little less weird than usual so G and I celebrated and went out for dinner at Quantum Leap, a mostly vegetarian place in the West Village.
G got a Fiesta burger (veggie burger topped with pepper jack cheese, chipotle BBQ sauce, guac, and pico de gallo) , the only thing he ever orders at QL ("Why stop now?"). Indeed. I tried to take a photo of it for you but he was already halfway through it and I didn't want to embarrass him. Let's just say, we asked for exxxtra napkins.
I opted for the Asian Soba Salad (cold soba with Asian veggies, green seaweed, hiziki, marinated tofu, green and red cabbage with wasabi-shoyu sauce).
It was pretty good. The carrots were a little dry and the onions seemed out of place. The hiziki was weirdly flavored but I'm picky with seaweeds. However, I don't even usually like (green) seaweed salad and this one was very good. It was fun to eat mixed with the soba. The tofu was well-cooked and marinated in some sort of ginger-y sauce, which was a nice counterflavor to the salty shoyu. It was a fun plate of texture and flavor.
Also, 2 for 6 dollar Miller High Lifes! It made for a good night.
