Looks like we are headed back down to New York this Saturday, May 9th, to celebrate World Fair Trade Day. We will celebrate this incredibly important holiday by participating in the Fair Trade Vendor Fair, which includes AP, of course, but also Global Good Partners, Sustainable Threads, Interrupcion*, and a whole host of others! Along with the vendor fair there will be FREE Fair Trade giveaways including coffee and chocolate. Fair Trade video games, and Fair Trade info booth. Throughout the day there will be film screenings including “Bean to Bar,” a film about Divine Chocolate and the Kuapa Kokoo cooperative and“Awaken Your Conscience,” a film about the Equal Exchange cooperative as well as Fair Trade speakers and presenters.

So if you are in the Big Apple this weekend, please take the time to come talk with fellow fair traders, learn about Fair Trade, eat some delicious chocolate and of course say hi to us! We hope to see you there celebrating and spreading awareness!

New York, New York: It’s the Big Apple, the city of dreams, America’s most populated city and was recently voted this years Favorite Veg Friendly City by the readers of Veg News. New York offers a plethora of great vegan eats ranging from around the world. It’s quite easy to eat vegetarian and even vegan within the city limits, but this week we at AP wanted to share one of our favorite veggie restaurants: Red Bamboo!

With two locations, one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn, Red Bamboo is a mecca for all vegan residents and visitors alike. Their menu is based on vegetarian soul and carribean food with heavy influences of great American cooking. They have seriously mastered the mock meat market with the variety they offer! Although not their entire menu is vegan, they mark which items are not acceptable and the menu is easy to read.
Coconut Shrimp

We have had the luxury of eating at both locations, although very similar they have minor differences on their menus. The Brooklyn location is also a bit larger and offers brunch on weekends. The brunch is decent, however the lunch and dinner is what you really want to try. The service is always excellent with helpful and friendly staff. Our last experience here was on a blistering 95 degree day in the streets of NY, where we found solace inside the air conditioned Manhattan location and our waitress was on point with the constant flow of water and ice tea!
Bourbon Chicken Dinner

A few sample items from their menu include: Buffalo Barbecue Wings, Coconut Shrimp, Creole Soul Chicken Sandwich or Appetizer, B B Q Steak Hero, and Codfish Cakes with Mango Salsa! With a variety such as that you can’t go wrong! Check out their full menus for the Manhattan and Brooklyn locations.
Soul Chicken Appetizer(Comes in Sandwich too!)

They also have a few vegan desserts on their menu such as cakes and ice cream, although we haven’t tried them yet and can’t vouch for them. However, based on how delicious their appetizers, sandwiches, and entrees are we don’t doubt they are delicious.

So if you are NY native or are visiting anytime soon, be sure to stop by either location and indulge in some seriously delicious soul vegan food!

Red Bamboo is located at:

140 W 4th St, Manhattan, NY (212) 260-7049

271 Adelphi St, Brooklyn, NY (718)643-4806

Feel free to let us know what you think about Red Bamboo and share your experiences or favorite dishes with us!
