….Have you ever been to a vegan restaurant? Last weekend, my second daughter, my husband, and I visited the restaurant Wildseed in Palo Alto. It was our first time trying a vegan restaurant, so we were curious about the ingredients. Our expectations were already high even before tasting the food, as many people were lining up before the opening. We wondered if the taste would resemble what we know, considering they don’t even use milk. There was a cautious suspicion about whether we would sense the familiar taste. Ingredients resembling cheese, eggs, and meat were beautifully plated one by one, and we wondered which one to try first. We sampled each ingredient, and the initial taste exceeded our expectations, with distinctive flavors and aromas. The appealing plating also had a slightly enchanting effect. The red velvet pancake I ordered, colored with beets, had a simple and smooth taste that was very enjoyable. It had a great texture too. Although the meatballs were a bit chewy, they paired well with the curry sauce, and the addition of scrambled eggs and cheese, served with arugula, created a pleasing combination. Today, I boiled beets with a bit of salt, enhanced the sweetness, added coconut cream, and created a batter to make red velvet pancakes. While it’s not the same recipe, it’s a visually appealing and sophisticated pancake with a unique taste. I would like to recommend it. If you have the opportunity, please be sure to visit.
