Of course the food is usually one of my favorite parts of visiting any city!  

I'm staying with my cousins who have a beautiful house boat. We've been paddle boarding, eating delicious vegan foods and having a great time.  

This was lunch today at Veggie Grill in south Union. Portobello mushroom on a bed of fresh kale with the best organic fries ever! Check it out!
