Vegetarian Food Bridgeport CT

I've been observing a small and growing vegetarian food scene here in Bridgeport.

The oldest is Bloodroot in the Black Rock section of the city. They have been around for years and have the most inventive menu. They are the place you want to go if you are looking for a nice sit down restaurant. They also put on some events and have a bookstore. Every vegetarian I've brought there over the years loves the place.

Shandal's Cafe on Capital Avenue is vegan. The place is tiny but makes up for it in heart. Shandal is probably the nicest chief/owner in all of CT. Everytime you go in there they make you feel at home. Many of the dishes are in the style of making tofu taste like meat which he really comes close to doing. I think his most popular dish is the BBQ tofu. For $6 you get to chose four items from the steam table. Also ask about the juice, they usually have something freshly made.

The newest place in the city is P1 Natural Juice on Main Street. They have been around for a few months now. Their specialty is juice. They have a good variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from. Lately I've been going for banana, pineapple, mango, and coconut milk. So good. They also have soups. Their ital stew is really, really good and very hearty during this cold weather. They keep telling me they are going to have a steam table with food but it still isn't in operation. Things tend to move very slowly there so keep that in mind if you visit.

I hope this trend continues. I think it is really good if people have an alternative to the many fast food places around here.
