Cocoa V

Dr. Cow Cheese Plate

Last weekend me and 4 other lovely vegan ladies had a girls day in NYC. Our first stop was the all vegan chocolate shop Cocoa V. What a lovely space! We entered through the chocolate shop which was filled with chocolate, cookies, cupcakes…etc…etc….  Then we entered into a really nice little dining room where you can order all sorts of things from quiche to cheese plates and chickpea melts and drinks like wine, espresso, juices and Iced Chocolate all of which are 100% vegan.     You can even get shakes there! I so wanted the Peanut Butter shake but was so full after our experience there that there was no way I could fit it into my belly. Next time.

For our appetizer the 5 of us decided to share the Dr. Cow Cheese Plate for 2. Besides having a few rounds of Dr. Cow cheese on the plate there were crackers, strawberry, figs, hummus and what I think was a type of quava jelly candy sorta thing. This was my first experience eating Dr. Cow cheese and it won’t be my last. I loved it. If it wasn’t so expensive I would probably make sure I had it in my fridge at all times.

Cocoa V Quiche of the Day

For our main course the 5 of us each ordered the Quiche of the Day. Which was made with leeks and daiya cheese. IT WAS AMAZING! Hands down the best quiche I’ve ever eaten vegan or not. I truly believe you can feed this quiche to the most hardcore omni you know and they would have no idea that it was vegan. It was that good and its something I’m going to try to recreate at home.

Chocolate Fondue Offerings!

After our main course we all split the Chocolate Fondue dessert. I didn’t get a picture of the melted chocolate but let me tell you it was the most melted chocolate I’ve ever seen in my life. We dipped everything from strawberries, candied ginger, apples to brownie bits and biscotti into the melted warm chocolate. I won’t name names but one person in our group, and it wasn’t me, was dipping their spoon into the chocolate and eating it like soup.

This was seriously one of the best meals I’ve ever had outside of my home. Everything tasted perfect, I was with wonderful vegan friends and it was so nice to go into a food establishment and be able to eat whatever I wanted and not have to worry about hidden animal ingredients. If you have yet to visit Cocoa V I suggest you do ASAP.
