I told you that I had a few interesting places to share...Well, this is definitely one of them! The Post and Courier did a fantastic job of spot lighting local vegan and vegetarian restaurants in the area and I, for one, am so glad they did. I had never heard of Puree and, of course, that called for a short road trip to Mount Pleasant last week.
What an incredible menu! Arugula, Goat Cheese & Roasted Beet Salad with Toasted Seeds and Berries. Cashew Soba Noodle Salad with Peppers, Scallions, Grilled Tofu, Carrots & Cashews. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Wrap with Fresh Veggies & Avocado. You see what I am talking about? I might as well relocate to Mount Pleasant right now.
And, it's feels like a beach cottage inside. It's light and airy and white and refreshing...
I really do think it was love at first sight. It even looks like a quaint, little, beach cottage on the outside, too.
Words can't even tell you how excited I was to walk in and check out a menu and want to try everything on it! They serve breakfast and lunch along with a great kid's menu. They also serve dinner Tuesday through Saturday with daily specials.
Not only do they feature a kid's menu but they also supply "Baby Bowls" with a daily selection....roasted beets, banana & avocado, cinnamon carrot, sweet potato with coconut milk,pear puree and a fruit medley. Great way to keep the health-conscious Moms happy.
Anyway, I had a totally delicious lunch. Can you guess? Probably not. I ordered an Asian Tofu Bowl. Pan fried tofu in a chili garlic sauce with brown rice over a bed of greens, shaved cucumbers, carrots & avocados served with a carrot ginger sauce. I wasn't kidding when I said it was delicious but it was also beautiful...
I absolutely love this place and it won't take any prompting to return again very soon. If you are shopping, roaming, visiting or just driving through Mount Pleasant, you definitely need to stop in. Vegetarian, vegan or carnivore~it's a great way to let your taste buds explore!
I hope this finds you off to the start of a great week. Happy Monday from Charleston Treasures!
