We arrived during happy hour, and that meant buy one sake, get one free. Paul and I split a 2-for-1 deal.
Jennifer and Tiffany (both awesome diehard animal rights activists!) did the same.
Cassi went with wine because she's special like that.
And Shay, who arrived super-late and way past happy hour time, ordered wine as well.
As for the food, Tiffany and I opted for the Vegan Noodle Bowl, a newer dish on the entree menu. It has rice noodles, coconut curry sauce, cashews, and veggies. OMG, this was so GOOD! It was probably enough for two meals, but I ate it all. (Note: If you're at Blue Fin for lunch, check out their Vegan Tofu Sandwich or their Vegan Vermicelli ).
Plus, I couldn't resist a side of Tofu Inari — tofu skin stuffed with sushi rice. I just love this stuff!
Cassi ordered a summer veggie plate that had a "V" next to it, but turns out the smoked polenta in the dish was made with cream and cheese. Ew! She sent it back and got the Veggie Roll (tofu & veggies) and Inari instead.
Speaking of Cassi, she's trying to open a vegan restaurant in Memphis. We have a few options here, but lawd knows we need more. She's got a building all picked out, so send her positive vegan restaurant vibes. And if you have some cash to spare, you can donate to her Go Fund Me page!
