I went to a party last Saturday night and stayed out later than usual. When I woke up later that Sunday, my stomach felt uneasy and I wanted eggs or Indian food, something heavy and savory, to jolt it into calmness. But instead I found the Breakfast Burrito tofu scrambler from the V Spot, a vegan restaurant. I ordered take-out, so I can’t tell you much about the restaurant or provide any pictures of my food, but I’ll share my thoughts on the burrito:
Picture tofu in tiny pieces, crumbled to the consistency of small pieces of paneer bhurji. Tofu like this can hold spices well, as opposed to the giant rubbery blocks that swim, unscathed, in marvelous flavors; they are disappointing, and all too typical. This saucy tofu was wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, along with a smear of guacamole and black beans, salsa and soy cheese. It settled my stomach in a savory fashion, and I didn’t feel tired or heavy, as I usually do after I eat a breakfast of eggs. Morning burritos with scrambled tofu seem easy to make at home, so when I figure out a good recipe, I’ll post it here- suggestions are welcome!
Breakfast Burrito: $9.
The V Spot is at 156 5th Avenue, between Douglass and Degraw, Brooklyn, NY. (718) 622-2275
