We took a field trip to where else? New Jersey of course. Madison to be exact. So where are a couple vegans going to eat? I wanted Mexican and Julia was hungry for something Asian. Hmmm, what to do? And then, there it was, an answer to our prayers, the Bento Grill sign read “Mexican With An Asian Flair.”
We got the “first time?” speech from an enthusiastic gentlemen who seemed to be in charge. The Bento Grill was set up like a Chipotle but there was a twist. Their “Asian” soft tacos were actually steamed buns(Julia got those). Instead of salsa, they had four different Asian sauces. The only vegan one was the Korean barbecue. I went for a more traditional wheat tortilla. Throw a healthy helping of vegetables and tofu, we had a unique dining experience. It seemed more Asian than Mexican but we both agreed, it was filling, a real winner. We’ll be back. They really should advertise it as veg-friendly.
