Cultivate, 220 Saint Georges Ave., Rahway, NJ 07065
Cultivate says they are “fun spirited.” They aim to offer flavorful, vegan comfort food and prepare most of their dishes in house. For sustainability, they use bamboo soup cups and virtually no plastic. They source produce locally whenever possible, and try to avoid foods which use resource intensive production. A couple of Snacks you might consider are Dahi Puri a cold dish of potato, lentils, tamarind and mint chutneys with a yogurt drizzle or Crispy Fried Oyster Shrooms – battered and served with garlic mustard sauce and hot maple dip. Main Courses abound. For the Wild Mushroom Linguine, they dry seasonal mixed, mushrooms themselves and create a broth from them which they incorporate into an herbal-scented cream sauce. There are also various dishes offering vegan chicken, sausages and burger options, Eggplant Napolean (a popular entrée) and Traditional Indian Style Smoked Red Lentils with cumin, coriander, pickled vegetables and jasmine rice to list a few. Sides to keep your entrée company are Peri Peri Fries spiced with their signature blend, Steamed Bok Choy with Cannellini Beans and Garlic and Corn Succotash. Desserts vary seasonally.
