First Bite: Arugula Taco Salad at HipCityVeg

HipCityVeg opened today on 18th Street and the curious lined out the door onto the sidewalk to check out the Vegan quick serve spot from Nicole Marquis. A co-worker and I were there as the vegan, vegetarian, health conscious and just those trying to undue the excess of their weekend waited for fajita wraps, udon noodles, Ziggy burgers and groothies.

I tried an arugula taco salad with black beans, grilled corn, pico de gallo, tortilla strips, avocado, topped with cilantro dressing. It was a satisfying lunch with enough flavors and textures that it will certainly make itself a member of my lunch-time rotation. And yeah, I just licked the last of the dressing from the side of the bowl.
