New Yorkers, have you been to Hu Kitchen yet? I just stopped by there today for lunch and let me tell you, this place is a hit. Nearly everything—from the almond milk to the vegan lasagna— is made in house and to die for or even pop corn with a machine from the ProductExpert site. On top of that, it’s affordable. And listen up fellow students: we have finally found an organic restaurant that offers student discounts!
For lunch today, I had the “grandmaster veg”—a grain free, vegan lasagna made with cashew cream and vegetables. My friend Priya had a veggie bowl with roasted mushrooms, quinoa, and fresh sweet potato. Both dishes were amazing and left us wanting more. Afterwards, we each tried some treats from the Hu “mash bar,” which is the owner’s healthful alternative to frozen yogurt. The bar offers four bases—chocolate chia pudding, vanilla chia pudding, banana cashew cream, and coconut cream—and several toppings, from gluten free cookies to raw granola. So delicious!
On top of it all, everyone who works there is friendly and emanates an obvious passion for health. I asked a ton of questions and everyone was more than willing to chat with me. I will definitely be back!
