Vegan for Discriminating Palates

Please excuse the intrusion, but I want to share something very nice.

Jan and I just had lunch at the newly-opened vegan restaurant Adama (428 Chapala St. in the old Casa de Sevilla building) and…WOW! The place is beautiful, the staff is a delight, and the food, oh the food! It’s really pretty much as good as it can get. I’m so impressed that I wanted to share this with people who I believe would appreciate knowing about it. Even if you’re not a vegan or think you don’t like vegan food, please consider checking this place out.

I had a garden sandwich on focaccia with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and cashew cheese. It was totally scrumptious, and the side salad with sesame vinaigrette was very nice too. My sweetie Jan had the Aglio e Olio, pasta with olive oil, garlic, pine nuts, and butternut squash (and plenty of moist, chewy bread to soak up the juices). for dessert, a chocolate cupcake dripping with moistness and covered in luscious frosting. And an apple streusel tart for the lady.

The restaurant is broken up into little rooms, each a little different ,and all cozy and wonderfully furnished. The staff is attentive and friendly and very good-looking to boot.

I know this sounds like an ad, but I really couldn’t wait to get home and share our delight with others. This is an out-of-the-way location, so their success will come via word of mouth. I’m doing my part. I urge everyone, vegan or not, to give Adama a try. I think you’ll love it. And no, I don’t have a stake in the place. It’s just that I’m thrilled with what they’re doing and want them to succeed and be around for a very long time.

Check it out. Seriously.
