"Reinventing Indulgence" One meal at a time!

Vegan day 298: Franchia (2)

Franchia could definitely be at the top of one’s vegan dining list! I sometimes forget that vegan restaurants do exist outside of my West and East Village comfort zones. It’s definitely worth the trip to Park Avenue and 34th! The teas alone are amazing and Franchia, as well as it’s sister restaurant Hangawi (vegetarian) are well-known for their Korean food!

I try not to order fried items but I got pulled in by the word lobster. Why though? Lobster is on the 8 cruelest foods to eat list. I should run away from it on a menu not towards it. Hey.. it’s a process! Anyway the fake lobster was delicious! Those crabcakes too! I didn’t eat the sushi because once again, I forget to order it with brown rice. Sometimes I forget that I do not live in a whole grain vegan bubble lol. 

 STONE BOWL– Oh yes! It’s all about the stone bowl here and the BIBIMBAP. Honestly, you have to check out the MENU!

What is BIBIMBAP? Furthermore, how do you pronounce it? Watch this video and the others for more on how to make it!


I try and I try to avoid desserts but my friend looked at me. That’s all it takes now is the slightest look of pier pressure and I give in!
It was well worth it.. right down to the miniature vegan marshmallow!
