{Restaurant Review} Tula Kitchen

Last week, my twin sister and I celebrated a major birthday milestone...23! Things really do feel different this time around. I've never loved being home so much, in my bed, watching a movie, with the pups. Well, it's a good thing I have awesome friends to keep me chugging along. So, last Friday night a few of us got together for drinks and appetizers. My friend, Dan picked us up, dressed to the nines as always ready to escort Brittany and I to our awaiting reservation.  Boy, does he know us all too well! This was perhaps the cutest place in all of Long Island, Tula Kitchen.  Beneath the sign was the tagline, "Live to eat. Eat to live." It was love at first sight.

The restaurant offered a cozy, Moroccan inspired ambiance. Lanterns and chandeliers lit up the room. Each table had a candle fixture to set the mood for the intimate evening.

The meaning of "tula" goes something like this...
"Each and every one of us has our own personal goals in life that we strivetowards everyday. The most important things in my life have always been family, friends, love, laughter, health & belief in ones cause. The key to maintaining all of that is through "balance". When i discovered the word "Tula" which is the sanskrit meaning for balance, I knew in my heart that it was the perfect name. To be surrounded by delicious, nutritious food, good company & enjoy oneself implicitly is to be at tula. We thank you for allowing Tula to be part of your balance."

Tempeh Teriyaki

The menu features healthy, organic ingredients with delicious vegetarian options. For starters, you can choose from a variety of options like, the Mediterranean spread for two which includes spinach pie, greek salad, hummus, grilled pita, and tzatziki sauce. This impressive spread could feed more than 2 people, but I'm not complaining! Salad options include a roasted asparagus salad with cannellini beans, red onions, feta, tomatoes, and red wine vinaigrette  Protein add-ons are also available for all salads- grilled chicken, organic tofu, tempeh, shrimp, and tuna. The "din-din" section features coconut and almond crusted tilapia and baked salmon cakes. If you're vegan or vegetarian you aren't limited to options here! Sesame crusted tofu and tempeh teriyaki are only a couple of items to choose from on the list.

Tula's mission is to keep you happy and healthy. Mission accomplished Tula!
