Over the summer I wrote about taking a food writing class in NYC and the food my friend Dianne and I ate. I mentioned having a Butterfinger Milkshake at Terri and how I’ve only ever ordered a Butterfinger Milkshake at Terri and that I’ve never actually eaten food that they serve. Well I finally got a chance to eat a proper meal there…of course….with a Butterfinger Milkshake!
First I’ll admit that my husband and I weren’t suppose to eat at Terri the night we were in the city. We had reservations at another vegan establishment but a broken down bus just past the tolls to the Lincoln Tunnel made us miss that reservation. I was sad about it but perked up when I realized that Terri was actually on the way to where the second part of our evening was to take place. It ended up working out for the best.
Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
I knew immediately what I was going to order. I’ve been eyeing their Buffalo Chicken Sandwich on the menu each time I’ve gone in and only ordered a Butterfinger Milkshake. Buffalo Sauce is one of my favorite foods. Period. The sandwich comes with celery on it and if there is one thing I don’t like in the food world it is celery (and seaweed). I’ve tried to like it and it just isn’t happening although I have become a bit more tolerant of it in things. I was going to ask them to not include it in the sandwich but decided last minute not to. I’m happy I did because it added a flavor to the meal that I actually didn’t mind for once in my life. The crunch the celery added to the sandwich was a welcome event in my mouth.
Roasted Veg Sandwich and a Brazilian Bombshell Smoothie
My husband is not much of a meat analog type of guy so he went with the Roasted Vegetable Sandwich and a smoothie called Brazilian Bombshell. The sandwich was loaded with eggplant, squash, sun-dried tomatoes, peppers and kalamata olives. He loved it and I loved the look of it. I’ve decided the next time I go to Terri I’m going to order this sandwich for myself. The Brazilian Bombshell smoothie he had with his meal was also great! Since it is a Brazilian smoothie it just has to have acai´in it and it did as well as cherries, blueberries, mangos, bananas, soymilk and agave. The next time we go to Terri I’m going to make him order this again and steal sips from it. I won’t be ordering it for myself because I’ll be ordering myself my usual Butterfinger Milkshake!
