Vegan Organic Caribbean Restaurant

Vegan's Delight's nearly all-vegan menu includes lots of Caribbean vegan dishes: ital stew, stew peas, curried bean curd, veg fish, boiled green bananas, sweet plantains, lilla coco, pepper steak, eggplant melange, sweet potato, yellow or white yams, as well as a variety of soups and stews. They also have a juice bar.

Note that while the restaurant/grocery is nearly all vegan (and markets itself as vegan), they offer a few vegetarian products that contain whey/egg whites, such as Worthington mock meats.

I have been meaning to get here for YEARS but the only time I've been around has been on Sundays, when they're closed. This place is a vegan's dream in the middle of a vegan dessert (not counting the veg-friendly restaurant next door). The Bronx has the fewest vegan options of the NYC boroughs (although I admit that I'm not counting Staten Island....sorry!) so I'm always super excited to come across a veg place up here.

The grocery has a great selection of every day items, random items, and Caribbean-specific items, including organic pasta, veggie burgers, Siracha sauce, and plantain chips.

I had already eaten lunch when I stopped in so all I got was a patty to snack on. Most Caribbean places I've been to usually only feature tofu, veggie, and/or the ambiguous "soy" flavor. This place had at least 6 or 7 varities, including soy fish, veggie duck, collards, and ackee. Most were around $2, but the ackee was $3.50. I know I had tasted ackee before but it had been years and I forgot what it tasted like so I had to go for it. The man ringing me up could only describe ackee as being "a fruit and a vegetable, and 'good'". That works for me! It was fantastic! It's hard to describe, as it doesn't taste like anything I've ever had. It tastes like a vegetable but has a subtle sweetness like a fruit, and a definite punch. I also had a piece of fried tofu for 75 cents just because it looked so darn good. I should have got more because it was fantastic!

I will definitely be stopping here again and will have my entire meal here, as I was more impressed with the two items I tried here than with the lunch special I had at the Healthy Choice Caribbean restaurant next door.

I've always driven by this take out/grocery place and never stopped. Today I was feeling hungry and my daughter asked me to get her something to eat, so I was nearby and I stopped. We are vegans and I got the calaloo patties, red velvet cake and strawberry cheesecake.

I want to honestly kick myself for not stopping in there way before today. The patties were tasty, and the cakes were UNBELIEVABLE! My teenage daughter, who's a super picky eater loved the strawberry cheesecake, I loved them both. I can't wait to go back, in all likelihood, tomorrow.
Keep up the tasty work!!
