VLife (New York, US)

New York City has several great vegan places ! I already mentioned the 100% vegan bakery By Chloe on this blog, today, let’s talk about a very different 100% vegan place : VLife! I was walking around New York when I saw a sign promoting 100% vegan food. Well that is too good an opportunity to pass up! I visited VLife several times during my stay in the city, but I only made pictures of one meal… Mostly because take-out doesn’t photograph so nicely 😀

So as mentioned VLife is 100% vegan, they serve burgers, wraps, rice bowls, vegan quasadillas, salads, juices, bubble teas and more! It is possible to customize the wraps, burgers, smoothies etc. And of course they have desserts! Apart from being vegan, they are Kosher-certified and do not use GMO soy nor MSG. All items on the menu that are also Soy-free or Gluten-free are marked. Additionally Vlife does both take-out and delivery.

Drinks at V-life
There are 4 of these tables inside, so very little space!

The first time I visited I tried a bubble tea and a vegan quasadilla, which was made with avocado and tapioca ‘cheese’ (VLife uses a lot of ‘cheese’ made of tapioca) It was delicious!

The second time there were some spaces to sit so I could actually made some pictures. We ordered an Easy V-cheesy wrap, Cajun fries, crispy mushrooms and a BLT Bliss burger. We could choose our own sauces, there is quite some choice! We tried the Mustard Aioli and the Avocado Mayo, both are nice!  For drinks we had a ginger black ice tea and home-made lemonade.

The mushrooms are nice and spicy. I liked the cajun fries, they were nicely seasoned and crispy. Also slightly spicy as expected. The burger was good, but not very special. I did really like the wrap, it had quite some salad, a tasty ‘cheesy’ sauce, and the soy protein had an interesting texture.

It is unfortunate the place is so tiny, but the food they serve is very nice … I went back there several times even though NYC is full of choices for vegan food!
