Tofu U

A very strange enchanted soy

The shoestring fries pretty much tasted like what they were, so no harm there. But the crab puffs, samosas, and green hummus were all duds, albeit edible duds. Too many Indian places do samosas better than Green's oily, less flavorful take on this appetizer. And there are tons of Middle Eastern places in town that do killer hummus, with just the addition of garlic, lemon, and olive oil. So there's no reason Green can't do better than this icky muck, puréed with poblano peppers. The won tons from which the crab puffs were crafted had an odd, acrid taste to them, and though I enjoyed the filling of imitation crabmeat and vegan cream cheese, I couldn't get by how weird that won ton tasted.

Happy-ending-wise, the eggless, butterless chocolate chip cookies won't beat out Toll House, but they were satisfying and gushy in an uncooked-cookie-dough sort of way. And yes, I did gladly finish off all of my soft-serve vanilla-coconut soy ice cream, and my chewy peanut-butter chocolate bar. Don't know how I'm going to get all thin and booful eating such stuff, but I suppose as long as the thin and booful are serving me, I'll still die a fat and happy man.
