Kitchen Dances

Kitchen Dances is a vegan food cart located in the Good Food Here food pod on SE Belmont St.

Menu (as of August 2011)
I ordered the Sesame Peanut Wrap ($8): cooked ginger tofu, grilled seasonal vegetables, quinoa, and sesame peanut sauce wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. It is served with a side salad (mixed greens) and a red wine vinaigrette.

A good dish here, but not mind-blowing. The mixture of ginger tofu, grilled vegetables, and quinoa worked well with the sesame peanut sauce. I loved the mixed greens and the red wine vinaigrette. It really brought the overall dish to a more gourmet level.

I did have concerns with the tofu. It was a bit on the dry side when I enjoyed the first half of this meal at the food pod, and it got extremely dry by the time I finished the meal at home. The tofu is probably supposed to be the star of this sesame peanut wrap, so it was a bit disappointing to see that main component have a subpar showing. Also, while the sesame peanut sauce was good, it should be more accurately termed a paste -- at least for my serving.

What would have also worked for me: offering a spicy condiment (i.e. sriracha or another hot sauce). Maybe they did have something there and I overlooked it, but I didn't see anything.

This was still a good, healthy meal. Wonderful service. I will definitely consider returning in the future. 6.5/10
