World Vegan Month - Kokomo

Back on the vegan trail after a slight path deviation for Dumpling Fest, we tried another cafe off the Vegan Passport. Kokomo is located on Gore on the edge of Chinatown, which we found to be a sort of an out of the way location. They seem OK with that as their place and fare becomes more of a destination for sincerely hungry vegans and not just drop in traffic. Their menu is short and to the point with bowls and smoothies as the focal point.
We tried the All-Day Breaky Macro, a scrambled tofu dish with squash, roasted tempeh, cumin pickled cauliflower, greens and brown rice in addition to cilantro crema, hemp hearts, cilantro, green onions and sesame seeds. This was a tasty and undeniably a healthy way to start the day. Both the pickled cauliflower and tempeh provided interesting notes that are a little off the beaten path.
We also tried the Golden Laksa, a coconut turmeric broth with noodles, zucchini noodles, ginger fermented carrot and more greens. This was another tasty bowl, very subtle and refreshing. Here is where the folks at Kokomo rose above what might be expected. I completely forgot to mention that Marie is allergic to flax seeds (not usually and issue when we are at our usual Asian restaurants). Sure enough the crackers topping the Laksa contained flax seed (which they had already delivered to our table). They gladly prepared another bowl with out the crackers and packaged the first bowl to send home with us! A generous response, I would say.
Kokomo is a nice airy and bright little place with one lone table for communal eating. The folks here are friendly and interested in speaking about their venture! It provides another vegan option for people interested in healthy heating in good conscience.
