Scottsdale, AZ Edition: Flower Child
There was one vegetarian in our group trip, and it's kind of a bummer that more restaurants don't cater to these folks and instead phone in a vegetarian dish.
Flower Child, who specifically creates meals for vegetarians and vegans, and if you want meat, it's an add-on.
So we dedicated this restaurant to Sam since she put up with all of our other culinary adventures from the week.
And while I'm not a carnivore, I didn't have high expectations because I had never been to a restaurant like this before. But, wow, was I surprised.
I ordered the vegan poke, which came with marinated beet, avocado, pickled mushroom, cucumber, radish, wasabi pea, smoked dulse, brown rice, spicy ponzu and I added a salmon fillet.
This was incredible and full of flavor! There was citrus and zing and umami and crunch and a slight sweetness. So delicious! I ate nearly every last bit. If I could eat like that every day, I could go (mostly) vegan. The salmon was just bonus!
