The Main Event

Ok normally I am a dessert is my favorite course kind of gal. What can I say, this one has a sweet tooth; at times it seems like the only tooth I’ve got.

But last week during my dinner ay Candle, the main course stole the show. 100% vegan. Ok I will admit it, I have toyed around with the idea of going animal product free more than once. I even lasted 14 whole days last August until I got so wrapped up in the need for an ice cream cone that I caved. There are definitely days I eat vegan and days I stray far far away. That being said whenever a restaurant that boasts this characteristic is on the books fora visit I get excited. I mean, it takes immense skill to cook food sans animal anything that tastes better than the majority of foods I’ve eaten in my life.

Candle succeeded and then some. I wasn’t even all that hungry and I finished this massive  plate. My fork was a magnet to the flavor. Hook line and sinker, give me more. The creamy luscious mac and cheese, the succulent barbecued seitan, the heart chili, and the salty spicy corn, I mean who could resist.

It’s funny but it’s true; this Southern gal had a damn near perfect replica of the food she grew up on at a restaurant that used none of the products the South is known for. I felt more at home during the course of this meal than I have since my last visit. And believe me, Nashville isn’t exactly teeming with vegan hot spots. Those tastes, though, well they brought me back.
