Coachella 2009 Food Heroes!
How happy were we to find this place at Coachella last weekend? Very!
Their menu is created from fresh produce from the super awesomeSweet Leaf Organic Farm & Cafe in Oregon.
Sweet Leaf Cafe is a solar powered kitchen that serves an organic menu at festivals, concerts, and street fairs. Salads, Stir Fries, Sandwiches, Wraps, Smoothies – the Cafe menu is fresh from their farm! These people have a cool attitude! I want to run away and work on their farm.
In the hot as hell California desert, this place was an oasis of fresh juice, produce and overall deliciousness. They were serving tempeh & tofu wraps, huge salads with homemade dressings(i hear they contain honey so make sure to ask) & smoothies & juices galore. Seriously, we were so happy with the veggie food options at Coachella. I have never been to a festival that was so vegan friendly. I never even had to partake in the old standby of a boring veggie burger made by a greased up carney. Coachella, we hate you for the heat, the over-crowded Saturday, and general douchey-ness but we fookin’ LOVE you for the FOOD! Thank you also for:
Homemade Granola Bars (on campgrounds) & Iced Coffee from SuperLove
Coconuts from 118 Degrees
NY Style Vegan Pizza (SO TASTY!) from Pie for the People
Vegan Pad Thai with Peanut Sauce and Veggie Stir-fry over Brown Rice from a place I thought was called Eggroll King but I’m still researching this.
Tofu Masala Burgers from Cowboys & Turbans
Apparently, the VIP area had a booth from Jenny’s 118 Degrees which is raw delicious-ness and I should know because I am a customer at her restaurant in Costa Mesa not because I am a richy-rich cool kid who got into the VIP section. I hope Morrissey and Sir Paul McCartney tried her food! Go Jenny!
I’m hungry now. Bye-bye.
