I’m a busy man lately. Been running all around Manhattan performing errands, getting some dreaded Christmas shopping done, dropping off a few coats for charity, and also squeezing in some much-needed fun time with my friends. NYC is a magical place this time of year, and lends itself to a bit of overeating and overindulgence.
Yes, diets and waistlines take a beating during the holiday season.
That being said it’s always nice to have a spot like Westville to drop in for some clean and healthy eats to place your mind at ease, and make you feel a little better about yourself after the previous night’s egg nog consumption and over-eating at the company party.

There’s no meat in that? Really? It’s vegan? C’mon, you’re kidding. OMG this tastes amazing – like a party in my mouth!
That is what was going through my mind as I devoured the Seitan Chimichurri. It has this smoky flaver and slightly burnt edges as if cooked right on the bar-b-que. I could have sworn it was a meat product as it had great texture and substance. Served on skewers like a shishkabob. After this wonder I knew we were in for a treat. I had no clue that going meatless could be so tasty, but Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side of NYC enlightened me as to what delicious vegan cooking can be!
I finally popped my Maoz cherry! So many times I walked by this place down in Union Square NYC, saw all the rave reviews on Yelp, but did not drop in to try it out. It was my first time yesterday for lunch and discovered a terrific falafel sandwich and sweet potato fries! Hot damn this was good. My taste buds approved of this healthier option that I was putting into my mouth. Yummers!
Sure, it’s not too often that I write about the healthier eats in and around NYC but at times I need to give my overtaxed digestive system a break. A meatless lunch. No bacon. No nitrates. Nothing that moos or oinks. Consider it a sort of cleansing. My body thanks me. My intestinal tract thanks me. My butthole thanks me.
