New World Bistro
Let’s talk about how New World Bistro Bar has an ENTIRE VEGAN MENU.
Let’s talk about how I GOT TO GO EAT WITH MY BEST FRIEND AND RODE OVER IN A BUG MOBILE.
IT WAS AWESOME.
Now, let’s talk about the food.
We started out with a piece of bread, which the server confirmed was vegan. Rather than butter, our server brought olive oil and drizzled it onto our plates. Delicious!
Next was the veggie tapas plate, which was a meal within itself.
- Moroccan carrot hummus: amazing, amazing
- Eggplant dip: delightful
- Tofu feta: a little lemony, but still good - interesting
- Mushroom ceviche: awful, ask them to take this out, it’s gross (and we LOVE mushrooms)
- Flat bread: yum
- Olives: gorgeous
Two things, however: there was way too much food on the plate, and there were raw onions, which didn’t really even have a purpose on the plate.
After a long wait, our other two dishes came out. There was the Toscano flatbread pizza: fig jam, argula and truffle oil and seitan wings with meanhouse sauce.
The flatbread pizza tasted a little burnt, and we couldn’t really taste the truffle oil - I didn’t love it. It would have been better with Daiya, which was an option and I would order it if I got pizza there again.
The seitan wings, however, were fabulous - the meanhouse sauce was OK, but the wings themselves were incredible!
Totally worth a visit if you’re in the Albany area, not terribly expensive either. Yum!
New World Bistro Bar is located at 300 Delaware Avenue in Albany, NY. Go see a movie at the Spectrum after eating a delicious meal!
