Dancing Avocado Kitchen in Daytona Beach Review

avocado-kitchen

Yesterday, I met up with a group of lady business friends that I have been meeting up with monthly for a couple of years. We went to Dancing Avocado Kitchen, located on Beach Street in Daytona Beach. This was not even close to the first time I've eaten there, but I've never written a review on VCM about it, so I thought I would this time. I've written about the restaurant a few times on my vegetarian blog over the years.

I have went there numerous times to have such dishes as their tofu scramble for breakfast or their BBQ tofu sandwich for lunch. I've always liked the food there. The reason I don't go much is simply mileage. Living in Port Orange, it's not convenient to run over there for a quick lunch and then get back to my office to work. But I do like the restaurant when I can make it there.

Dancing Avocado Kitchen is a neat place because they bill themselves as a place where vegetarians and meat eaters alike can dine together. And they mean it! Rather than some places offering just a salad for the vegetarian in the group, or one vegetarian or vegan option, a vegetarian or vegan has a good selection of items to choose from on their menu. They no longer have the BBQ tofu sandwich I always liked, but they offer numerous other vegetarian and vegan options that were on their menu, as well as some specials that were being offered that day. There were plenty of vegetarian and meat options for everyone at the table.

I was torn between trying their vegan veggie burger or the vegan taco salad. I mean torn. I wanted both equally! I decided upon the vegan veggie burger. Other ladies in the group ordered a variety of dishes. Two of them ordered a chicken wrap (one had plantains with it) and one ordered steak tostadas (which she reported were delicious). I also ordered an unsweet iced tea (which was good). The veggie burger is a homemade vegan burger that is topped with a vegan bacon that they make there from eggplant. It was tasty, as was the nut cheese they topped the burger with. The burger was a bit too messy for me to pick it up, so I ate it with my fork and all was well. It was good, as were the potatoes that it was served up with. One person ordered the appetizer of tortilla chips and guacamole and I tried it. The guacamole was good.

The bill before tip was around $17, which is a bit pricey for lunch for one person, but I don't make it there often so I considered it a nice treat. Everyone else seemed to like their food as well.

I like the colorful atmosphere at the Dancing Avocado Kitchen, the service was good, and I enjoyed the food (as well as there being a good selection of vegetarian and vegan options). They have indoor and outdoor seating available, as well as some sauces, treats, and novelties for sale.

I'm looking forward to going back to try their vegan waffles that I saw on the menu that are only available until 11 am. Yum! Two thumbs up for the Dancing Avocado Kitchen in Daytona Beach!
