The focus of the Tourganic blog is eating healthy on the road but I want to give some love to some great vegan spots in my neighborhood in Brooklyn. Both of them are relatively new to the scene.
Happy Zoe's Vegan Bakery- I am excited for this new addition to Williamsburg. Happy Zoe's offers vegan and gluten free baked goods as well as smoothies, soups and entrees. This small and rustic spot packs a punch for its small space. Zoe made a point to let me know she doesn't overdo it with the sugar and sweeteners and one can see that everything is made with love and care. Happy Zoe's just opened up in December of 2017, hopefully the community will support and sustain this great spot!
Acai Berry- Acai Berry is located on a busy block on Manhattan Ave at the corner of Bedford in Greenpoint and you might easily miss it. They offer juices, smoothies, acai bowls, soups, sushi and more. Everything I've had here has been spot on. The acai bowl was just what I need after a 15 mile run and the sushi rolls were creative and very good. Greenpoint is holding it down with some great restaurant options and Acai Berry is right in the mix, offering plant-based vegan options for the people.
