The bun-less bowl contained breaded and pan fried tofu with kale, quinoa, avocado, basil, carrots, sesame seeds, crispy onions and a side of lime and garlic chili sauce. I stayed away from the chili sauce, of course. I thought it was good overall, but maybe I’ve had one too many quinoa dishes (especially during my vegan sugar detox) that it didn’t really ‘wow’ me. It was also a little on the salty side, which some people might enjoy.
The spinach basil ravioli pomodoro was also good if you like the tomato soupy type of dish. It was more like comfort food than a culinary adventure. I think the main reason we weren’t blown away is because we really wanted to get the butternut squash ravioli that I got the last time I was there, but we wanted to try something new. I don’t want to completely discredit the dish though. I would still recommend it to people. What really made it stand out was the flavorful melted cashew cheese that you can drizzle on top to your liking (they serve it on the side). I also like that they used almond cheese for the ravioli filling.
Since my boyfriend ate the nachos for the both of us, he could barely breathe by the end of the meal. Dessert was out of the picture because I couldn’t eat it all by myself.
If you ever eat at Sage, it would be wise to leave room for dessert because they have a mouthwatering display of baked goods and a colorful array of KindKreme vegan ice cream (although they do use honey in some of their flavors).
