Wok in the Park

This was my first visit to Wok in the Park, located in St. Louis Park. It's nice when a menu says this: "Vegetarian? Got it. Vegan? Got it. Gluten free? Got it. Epicurious? 100% MSG FREE? We're all over that." I had the Slayer Stir Fry with tofu. Great dish! Without even asking about the deserts, the waitress asked if we'd like some vegan pumpkin ice cream, which they apparently make themselves. Yum!

Yogurt Lab

Yogurt Lab has been popping up in various locations in Minneapolis in recent weeks and months. I've been to the 50th & France and IDS Crystal Court locations. They have non-dairy (and gluten-free) options. Walk in, pick up a cup, and go crazy! They have a ton of healthy and not-so-healthy options to pile atop your non-dairy treat. Yes, those are Oreo crumbles on top of mine. I typically get a fairly small portion size and pay between three and four bucks. FYI: I just sent a message to the company through their web site, just to be completely certain that there are no animal-based ingredients in their non-dairy options. I previously sent a message to some Yogurt Lab in another state and had included the wrong hyperlink in this post. I'll let you know what I hear from the correct (Twin Cities) Yogurt Lab.
