A few months ago while visiting New York, I discovered this almost unnoticed restaurant called VLife, a Vegan restaurant in the Chelsea area of Manhattan, New York. I followed my phone map to find it and I still walked by and missed the restaurant twice. I must admit that I hesitated to eat there at first glance, since we were the only customers. However, as I support every vegan restaurant, I decided to give it a try. Well, I am so glad I did, as I had an incredible experience with the food being flavorful and simply put, an easy vegan bite while in Manhattan.
As far as drinks, we settled for two Thai bubble teas, which were delicious! Regarding the main entrees, we had the Amazing Avocado, a gluten and soy free wrap; and the Bodacious Burger, which came with a soy patty, tapioca cheese and vegetables. We were also recommended by their staff to try the V-Cheddar Poppers, which were completely unhealthy, but super delicious! Definitely a must try in this restaurant.
Overall, while this restaurant can only accommodate a few customers at a time, this is an easy and affordable vegan bite if you are in a rush or just walking around Chelsea. Since this restaurant is just a couple blocks from Penn Station, I will definitely visit VLife next time I’m in Manhattan.
