Vegansaurus NYC: Holiday Season at Lula’s Sweet Apothecary »
So if you know anything about New York City vegan food, you know about Lula’s Sweet Apothecary a.k.a. the most delicious ye-olde-fashioned-ice-cream-shoppe of the vegan persuasion that boasts an extensive menu (pdf). And hell, in my opinion it beats out even Vegansaurus San Francisco favorite Maggie Mudd.
I made a trip to my favorite ice-creamery last night to find that Lula’s has this amazing holiday special. Called “Apple Pie Sundae,” this delectable treat is composed of cake batter and apple-cider soft-serve swirl, with a layer of maple syrup (I subbed Lula’s homemade caramel sauce), crushed graham crackers, a dollop of coconut whipped cream, and finished off with a sprinkling of crumbled pecans. If you can believe it, it tasted better than it looks. For a mere $6.25, it was a bargain. As my hips can attest, this dessert (hell… this dinner, who’m I kidding?!?!) was totally tasty and worth every penny and calorie. Get it while it lasts!
It’s nestled in the East Village at 516 E. 6th Street between Avenues A & B. Cash only, so don’t forget to hit up an ATM beforehand!!
For San Francisco readers: have you been to Lula’s? Who would win in a fight, Miss Maggie or Miss Lula?
