So when I got back from NY I had a 10 day vegetarian challenge to follow. I love veggies to death but I find that the biggest challenge so far is finding good vegetarian food that doesn't taste like eating leaves off trees. Being on the 3rd day now I was totally craving good eats. Sipz definitely filled that void. Tucked in a complex on Clairemont Mesa Blvd lies this inconspicuous looking cafe that is buzzing with vegans. Not only is their whole menu meat-less, it is also fusion! The dishes range from sushi to Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and even iItalian! I knew I found my default restaurant for the next 7 days.
We ordered the green papaya beef salad to start ($6.25). The papaya was really refreshing and was a change from the usual spring salads I was eating but let me tell you, the mock beef made the dish.
The chicken basil fry was extremely flavorful ($7.95). Something along the lines of a black bean-ish stir-fry. We substituted the white rice for brown to make things even healthier.
And of course my meal would not be complete without my "sushi" fix. I ordered the caterpillar roll with brown rice. It was stuffed full of veggies such as cucumber, yams, and carrots then topped off with layers of creamy avocado. As I dipped it into the soy sauce...I knew my meal was complete. Thanks to Sipz, I know the next 7 days will be a breeze!
