On a visit to Providence in early June 2016 I set out to explore some of the city’s vegan eats, including a visit to AS220 Food where I ordered two small plates. I will confess that my food photography and explorations don’t always align with my hunger or even the situation at hand. My husband and boisterous toddler were with me and PVD Fest was in full swing. As inviting as the interior and staff of AS220 were, I knew I had a limited amount of time to order, photograph and taste my food before packing it up to go.
My palate initially leaned toward the Seitan Chorizo and Cannellini Beans and Kale with Wild Rice Vegetable Broth. But later at the hotel I enjoyed the sweet smokiness of the Mapo Tofu with Ground Seitan in a spicy Chili and Douchi Sauce with Broccoli.
I wrote an article based on my vegan food experiences on this trip that was published in the Providence Journal in early July 2016.
