VeganMoFo: California Food Journal

Day 3: Palo Alto

I have been having internet connection issues so I'll make this quick... we left San Francisco Sunday night and headed south to Palo Alto. Breakfast was at the Cowper Inn; strawberries and figs with granola and toast with jam.
Lunch on the Stanford campus at the Treehouse consisted of two veggies tacos with a side of guacamole. These were better than I expected.
And a shitake mushroom rice bowl. Not as impressive, but it was nice to get some broccoli and cauliflower.
Dinner was on the main drag, University, at Zao Noodle Bar. Vegan options were clearly marked and I had the vegetable & tofu noodle bowl. If you order noodle bowls for the amount of noodles, this bowl isn't for you, as it was mostly veggies (which I didn't mind). The service for us was very slow though....
And for dessert I couldn't pass up soy frozen yogurt at Fraiche, topped with mangos and strawberries. I might be back for more of this another night this week!
Whew! I made it through without losing my signal completely. I'll be back tomorrow with more daily eats from Palo Alto!

I love that your noodle bowl was full of veggies - I hate it when I get the symbolic piece of broccoli and that's it!

so fun that you are in our neck of the woods. Oh, that fraiche just drives me nuts. I really love it. Wish it weren't a whole hour away. Also, it's fun to read about Zao again, I haven't been there in years.

:) see you soon!

Mmm, Fraiche! love it. I can't wait to hear about Loving Hut, if you eat there. Kokila's Kitchen is super yummy too; veg buffet! Tell them you're vegan & they'll hook you up.
