October 6th, 2008 - RIP Dhaba Joy

RIP Dhaba Joy Vegan Cafe
RIP Dhaba Joy Vegan Cafe.

Last week, we all lost our jobs. The owners decided not to keep their vegan cafe open, and we shut our doors suddenly on September 30th.
However, the cafe is connected to Toy Joy, and the toy store is expanding into the old Dhaba space. We will continue to have the vegan soft serve (that I developed), espresso, smoothies and eventually bubble tea! Sadly, we will no longer serve sandwiches or baked goods.
As an awesome bonus, the owners let me take about a million pounds of old food home to my vegan co-op. The meal that follows is one of my favorite that we made at Dhaba, and this meal would have never been possible without the generous donation of food from the owners.
