Bull City Vegan Challenge: Meal Six–NOSH

Posted by

(2 friends from Finland) + (a long walk through Duke gardens)X = a beautiful autumn afternoon

… and X equals?

X = an early dinner on Friday evening at NOSH!

Although I have been to the area many times, I have never eaten at NOSH, but the thought of soul warming vegan shepherd’s pie, along with its close location to Duke Gardens, made it the perfect choice for our late afternoon outing.

The service was impeccable and the menu diverse. I, of course, knew what I wanted, but the fact that my two friends (who have very different food tastes) also found something they were excited to eat, was pretty impressive.

The presentation of the shepherd’s pie was nice, and I also appreciated that the amount of food was very good for the price. The shepherd’s pie was different than what I expected. The bottom layer was stew-like (saucy with garbanzo beans and lots of yellow peppers) and had a heavy oregano flavor. The top layer of potatoes were nice and fluffy. The accompanying salad was very delicious–lightly dressed with great texture from the firm peaches.

NOSH was sunny, as were the employees who worked there, and was a great ending to a fun day with my friends. I definitely look forward to trying more of their dishes in the future!
