I had a noon appointment downtown and was too lazy to make a lunch to go and too hungry to wait until I got home. So I Yelped the closest vegan spot and decided on Hibiscus in Kensington Market. Since complaining about the vegan food in the city I decided to make more of an effort to try new places, and I'm glad I did. Hibiscus is on the east side, about halfway down the Augusta strip. It was packed, and rightly so the food was good, quick and cheap. I ordered the large bowl, which was a mix of kelp, quinoa, yams, beat, lentils, tofu, sprouts, chickpeas and on and on it goes. Plus a tasty raw cracker on the side and all for about $8! And if that wasn't enough, the people working were so friendly! I especially enjoyed the happy-go-lucky fellow at cash. I'll be back, Hibiscus is too good.
