I was near Ormond Beach today, so my husband asked if there's anywhere I'd been wanting to try out for lunch up that way. Indeed, there was! I've been wanting to try Wild Rabbit Bistro out, so we decided to go there for lunch. Wild Rabbit Bistro is located in at 48 E. Granada in Ormond Beach. They moved into where the Kale Cafe Ormond Beach location used to be.
They have a nice little cafe with plenty of seating options, as well as some outdoor patio seating. I wanted to check this place out because they offer numerous vegan options they offer. They denote their menu so you know which dishes are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc. It was challenging to decide what I wanted to try, because there were numerous options that sounded good.
My husband decided to get ultimate quesadilla, which is vegan and has black beans, sweet potatoes, spinach, red pepper, avocado, and hummus. I ordered to the bbq tempeh banh mi, which is served on roll and has greens, cucumber, pickles, carrots, cilantro, and wild siracha sauce. My dish comes with a side, so I chose to have roasted sweet potatoes. They ended up serving me chips with it, so when I let them know I was supposed to get the roasted sweet potatoes they brought those, too. I didn't really want the chips, so I shared them with my husband.
My husband really liked his quesadilla, which he said it was great. It looked fresh and seemed filling. I really liked my bbq tempeh banh mi! The bread that it was on was a little crunchy, which I liked, and the bbq tempeh was perfectly flavored and had a great texture. The siracha sauce that you top it off with was a nice treat, I loved it! The sweet potatoes were also delicious and made me feel like patting myself on the back for such a healthy meal.
Their menu offers both vegetarian/vegan options and meat options. Their ingredients are non-GMO, and local and organic whenever possible. They also don't use any artificial ingredients, such as artificial sweeteners or dyes. They also try to use a lot of organic ingredients.
Overall, the food was really good. We felt like we had a healthy meal that was made from fresh, wholesome ingredients. We will go back again when we are in the area. I'd love to go back when I can order one of their organic acai bowls. I saw someone else with one when we arrived and it looked great. Two thumbs up for Wild Rabbit Bistro!
