I was there for lunch and there was a vegan option not shown on the main menu.

I did not have a starter but went with an Irish coffee. Nothing special here but the presentation was very nice.

Steak frites was also very good.

Lobster BLT was ok but nothing to write home about.

If the weather is good try the outside patio. Very cool.

Life Alive Cambridge MA

A fantastic find for the vegetarian organic food lover!!! The taste of freshness in this food will stay with you for at least a week after you’ve eaten here. I went on a late Sunday afternoon and the place was pack with a line nearly out the door! The vegetarian menu of deluxe organic options is also supported with a robust smoothie menu.

I started with ‘The Innocent’ a flaxy Nutri-Nama sauce seasoning sweet corn, shredded carrots, broccoli, kelpy yeast & tamari almonds over quinoa.

My friend also had the Flourish Alive smoothie, a blend of berry kombucha, blueberries, mango, lemon, avocado and maca, it was DELICIOUS!

While you can’t make a reservation as it’s similar to walking into a Starbuck’s, putting in your order and having it rrive at your table in 10 minutes, you can order takeout!!!

They have locations in Lowell, Salem and Cambridge MA, I’ve only been to the Cambridge location:

Hakkasan

by on May.04, 2012, under Beer, Champagne, Chicken, Free Wi-Fi, Happening, LONDON, Parking/Valet, Restaurants, Steak, Swanky, Vegan, Wine

Hanway Place houses the original Hakkasan in London.
Situated just off Oxford Street do not let the slightly dodgey surroundings put you off . When you enter this underground restaurant you will be whisked away to a totally different world.

The restaurtant serves modern Chinese
Cuisine and has a Michelin star. I have no idea what the following photos are but can testify that it was all delicious.

The atmosphere is very cool even though it is supposed to be an old style setting.

20120504-125855.jpg
This place is not cheap but definitely worth a visit.
