Asbury Park, New Jersey is already lots of fun with it’s beautiful beach and boardwalk. What I now love when I travel there is that there are two healthy spots I can visit. One is a yoga juice bar and the other is my favorite TWISTED TREE CAFE. “Everything here is made from scratch and it’s organic!” “Nothing bought packaged, frozen or microwaved”- (that’s direct from the owners)–my kind of place!
The best part is that all the non-vegans that we dragged there LOVE IT! I will go every day when I’m in town for a weekend and my friends will give me a list of what they want to order. Funny little non vegans aren’t they. I haven’t been there since last summer. I was scheduled in the weekend of last summer’s hurricane on the North East so the whole weekend was cancelled.
I was so excited for my visit today. We even called ahead to be sure they didn’t close early. The things we do for vegan food. Actually, it’s not 100% vegan because they have 2 fish items on the menu. Basically though, everything else is VEGAN and they cator to the vegan, vegetarian and health conscious. So the new fight is on there- over the oat bread. I almost don’t want all my friends to know about this because for sure then they will run out lol. We don’t know what it is but they generally seem to be almost out on the weekends we roll in. Everyone wants that bread– it’s so delicious and hearty! It better be vegan lol- I’m sure that is but I also hope it’s not white flour or at least not much of it! I think we will call ahead again to make sure they pre-bake!
It’s a good thing I have this newfound love for the baker- after making my own bread I certainly understand and appreciate all that’s involved. The next item which I have to shout out because it’s the best I have ever had- is the hummus! Incredible. Everything we have tried has been great: the hummus sandwich, chili, tofu meatball wraps, quesadilla, tofu sandwich and so on! They also have gluten-free options and substitutions! They make the best smoothies and have their own line of cookies, granola bars and more! Hey Twisted Tree- we are coming back to Asbury July 14th- calling ahead soon for OAT BREAD! Thanks!
