Souen Organic Vegan Restaurant, NYC

Souen Organic Vegan Restaurant, NYC

Souen is a well established NYC Vegan Institution.  And it should be.  Although the food is very basic and simple, in my opinion, it is really well put together flavor wise.  They feature macrobiotic cooking.  A lot of root vegetables here, and brown rice and tofu, dark greens.  We just love the Yuba rolls, made from tofu “skins”.  Seriously, can’t get enough.  Basically very classic vegetarian restaurant of top quality. There are two locations:   210 Sixth Ave at Prince St, Tel: 212-807-7421 and 28 East 13th Street, bet. University Pl and 5th Ave Tel: 212-627-7150
