Vegan Chicken Wrap & Green Juice

The Chef: Jennifer and Herbivore

The Menu: A vegan chicken shawarma filled with avocado, potatoes, hot sauce, pickles, tahini, hummus with a side green salad, and a green juice.

The Goods: It's been raining all week in San Francisco so today when we saw a sliver of sun, we ventured out to one of our favorite restaurants, Herbivore. Our break-your-ribs funny VN columnist Laura Hooper Beck joined us for lunch. It was my first time meeting her and I laughed just as hard as I do when I read her column, "Ask Laura." VN Managing Editor Elizabeth Castoria's obsession with Herbivore's soy chicken is spreading (just like her affinity for puns)—and now I'm convinced that we should put soy chicken on top of everything. So the vegan chicken wrap stuffed with all sorts of goodies was the perfect way to indulge in my addiction. I ordered a green juice (packed with spinach, parsley, apple, and more) and it was a refreshing drink for what turned out to be a lovely day to dine al fresco.

“Up until [starting yoga in NY], a hamburger was something stuck between two buns — not a cow, a wing was something you dipped in BBQ sauce — not a chicken, and milk was something you drank as a human, never realizing it was only meant for a calf.” Russell Simmons
