Deb of Kahakai Kitchen and I had planned to meet up and try a Taco Truck that I had seen on Twitter.
But it seems that in the time we had planned this, they went out of business, so Deb suggested we try the Peace Cafe instead.
I had read about them on Jalna's blog and was interested in trying this place also.
Deb ordered the Moroccan Stew, this came with a salad, pickles and a flavorful chickpea stew (and some brown rice).
I chose the Cilantro Hummus sandwich. This came on a soft ciabatta with lots of alfalfa, cucumber & tomato. Definitely not something to eat while driving.
We intended to share the stew but they don't have "plates" (and we didn't want to waste another take-out box) so we ended up eating dipping our spoons in every so often.
Deb also tried their Iced Kinako Latte, this was really nutty, almost like peanut butter.
I tried their Hot Grain Mocha Latte, which was chocolatey but not sweet.
Of course we also tried their desserts...The Cocoa Berry mochi cake wasn't sweet and there was a LOT of berries and walnuts.
We also tried their Kinako cookies which we've read about here and there.
When I think of kinako, I envision something with a chalky texture but these were good and nutty flavor from the soy beans.
I was full from all those different veggies and desserts. It was nice seeing Deb again and we had a nice catch-up. Thanks for a great day Deb!
