The Wild Cow
The other night, my friend Emily and I went for dinner at a local vegetarian restaurant called The Wild Cow. This is a fairly new restaurant in historic East Nashville. It is a cafe style restaurant (you order at the counter) but the food was brought out to our table which was very nice. The staff was very welcoming as we entered, we were greeting by 3 different employees, and told to review the menu and feel free to ask any questions.
A copy of their menu can be seen here.
Everything looked so delicious; Emily and I decided to order 2 different things and split them. Emily ordered the Veggie Quinoa Bowl. It was grilled vegetables (broccoli, onion, carrots, and cabbage) over organic quinoa (which is a grain similar to rice or cous cous) with your choice of sauce (we got the green goddess dressing). That dish was a lot of food, and only $7.50. I ordered a sandwich called The Prince Fielder. It came with marinated and grilled tempeh or tofu (we ordered tofu), avocado, tomato, sprouts, cucumbers, shredded carrots, onions, vegan mayo, and spicy mustard on a toasted wheat roll. It also came with a choice of side item, so we got the hummus of the day (greek style), with tortilla chips. The sandwich was slightly bigger than a subway sandwich, and the hummus portion was large; a good amount of food for the $8.50 I paid for it. Unfortunately I must have been too excited to remember to take some pictures of our food. But hopefully the descriptions will get the point across.
The lady who took our order brought our food out, and was nice enough to bring us some plates for sharing. The food was delicious and so filling. We had to force ourselves to finish everything. Additionally, I noticed they had a wide selection of organic wine, beer, hard cider, and juices that I would love to try. The environment was very relaxed and the staff was so friendly. I cannot wait to go back and try more off their delicious menu.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in or around the Nashville area. More information can be found at www.thewildcow.com
