So often, the term 'vegan' conjures images of barefoot hippies munching on granola and acai bowls. This meal aims to deconstruct, scramble, electrify, and reconfigure that notion, as we drag that old stereotype kicking and screaming into the modern age. We'll be combining the old world with the new, as we accent organic produce and traditional flavors, with exciting textures and surprises. See you there!
