When we visit Jesse's family in Maine, we always make sure to stop by The Green Elephant in Portland, which is by far my most favorite vegetarian restaurant. Every dish is stellar, they use a lot of local ingredients and the ambiance is warm and cozy. Here are a few pictures of our meal last week, starting with Jesse's appetizer: crispy wontons filled with vegan cheese and spinach, with a sweet and sour dipping sauce. This was outrageously delicious.
My appetizer: Fresh Rolls (rice paper, mixed raw veggies, avocado with a peanut dipping sauce).
Maine Root blueberry soda. I love this stuff!
My entree: Panang curry with tofu and brown rice. It even had Thai eggplant and squash in the mixed vegetables. Deeeeeelicious!
Jesse's entree: Peking "duck" served over wide noodles. It looked just like duck and Jesse said it was tasty.
Our desserts. On the left is the chocolate orange mousse cake. It's so good that we talk about it often. On the left is a trio of sorbets (with some fresh fruit and cookies). We had coconut, mango and strawberry lemonade flavors. The strawberry lemonade was definitely my favorite.
I can't wait until we are back in Maine in November!
