Restaurant Review: Spoon Revolution Vegan Bistro ****

30 Aug

Today I finally made it to Spoon Revolution in Concord! Their dishes are 100% vegan and gluten-free. Their menu is very limited so don’t expect a lot of choices if you visit. Today, they had 1 soup (Vegetable Bean), 2 salads (Hummus salad and a garden salad), 3 entrees, and 1 dessert. Each day, they offer a 3 course meal for $8.99, which is what I opted for: Soup or salad, entree, and a dessert, plus iced tea. If you choose something outside of the designated 3 courses, you pay an “a la carte” price. Check out their site for more information.

Mixed greens salad with fresh hummus

Courgette and quinoa cold casserole (Grated young zucchini, quinoa lightly cooked in house vegetable stock and seasoned with walnut oil, fresh oregano and lemon juice, blended with uncooked fresh organic tomato and basil sauce.)

Iced Tea

Mango Madness Mango, banana and apricot with coconut milk, oats and brown rice syrup.

I will definitely go back to Spoon Revolution! Three things stood out to me, though, that prevented me from giving them 5 stars: the limited menu, the sluggish atmosphere and the lack of organic ingredients. Sorry, Spoon Revolution… you just can’t compete with Susty’s!

    PERFECT TIMING! I’m going to be in NH this weekend and I have one evening to myself. I’m planning to eat at Indigo but maybe I’ll swing by here afterwards for a shake!

    I cannot get over how vegan-friendly NH is!

      I have also been to Cafe Indigo! Both places are great, but if you are willing/able to venture a little further to Northwood, I think you will find that Susty’s is the best!

      New Hampshire is somewhat vegan-friendly. Towns like Concord have a lot of options, but places like Manchester and Portsmouth have no vegan restaurants. It baffles me!

        Well my mom reminded me that Cafe Indigo closes early so I was going to eat at Spoon and even checked their website to make sure they were open. It said “Closed on Labor Day”, which I took to mean Monday but apparently it also meant Saturday 🙂 I ended up making a little picnic lunch from that Coop that’s also right there on Main Street, and it was really good too!

        I’ll have to check out Susty’s on my next trip when I have more time!
