One of the few good things about living in Woodstock is Expressly Leslie. For some unknown reason, there is a vegetarian restaurant here and it is always busy! I am honestly shocked that it is still open, because usually if something is good, it goes out of business in approximately 4.667 weeks. Meanwhile, restaurants that serve canned and frozen food do quite well. The Woodstock palate is not very sophisticated.
I left my quiche on the kitchen counter today and took that as a sign that I needed to buy lunch. I always say I will try something new, but the only things I ever get are the lentil soup or the eggplant pocket. This eggplant is amazingly delicious.
Expressly Leslie also knows what a vegan is! They’ve added tags to the menu to indicate what is vegan. The eggplant pocket on the menu is not vegan if you get it with the cucumber salad, but they substituted the cucumber salad with a cucumber tahini salad topping. It also comes with some hot sauce.
Finally, for dessert there are vegan cookies from Jaci’s Cookies!
