Tonight I Dined: Flower Child
Flower Child is a healthy fast casual restaurant that has locations in AZ, CA, and TX. I visited the new location in The Domain complex in North Austin. The menu is clearly labelled, and there are so many vegan options! Instead of opting for a bowl, salad, or sandwich I went for the plate of 3 sides so that I could taste more! My plate consisted of yuzu brussel sprouts, Spicy Japanese eggplant, and Indian spiced cauliflower. The brussels were tangy and salty...it was my first time eating yuzu and now I can't get enough! I also really enjoyed the melt-in-your-mouth eggplant. Each bite was spicy and the cashews were the perfect pairing for a nice crunch. Unfortunately, the spiced cauliflower fell flat. Because it was supposed to be spiced, it came across as a little bland (I would have rathered a nice, fried cauliflower that isn't trying to be seasoned like from Aladdin's). The quality was really good, and the waitstaff had great vibes. I would definitely go back here and try one of the many other vegan options!
