Mac & Cheese, “Beef” with Veggies and Greens
I went to Jolo’s Kitchen, and all-vegan restaurant in New Rochelle, back in January with one of my friends. I hadn’t been to New Rochelle yet, so it was a little tricky to find, but that’s only because I don’t know the area. Parking is street only.
The restaurant is very cute! The food is served cafeteria style, with a couple of different types of “beef” (seitan), veggie dishes and sides. The mac & cheese wasn’t out, but they had some out back. I almost always choose a vegan mac & cheese when it’s available at a restaurant!
The food was okay, and the staff was really nice. My friend also ordered a smoothie, and since they made more than what would fit in the cup, they gave me the extra to try (blueberry and banana- yum!). They also had a small selection of desserts.
To the best of my knowledge, this is one of only two all-vegan restaurants in Westchester County, so I’m very glad for its existence. I think I might go back, if I were looking for a place to eat with a friend somewhere in the area, but it probably wouldn’t be my first choice.
I really, really wanted to like this place more than I did. The staff was so nice! The food wasn’t bad, and if I lived in New Rochelle, I might be more likely to go back. In fact, if I lived in New Rochelle, I would definitely go back. JL of JL Goes Vegan gave it a much better review– so it may be worth another look!
