It’s unlikely for me to go to a Vegan restaurant especially for brunch, but when I heard the V spot was serving unlimited mimosas and focused on Latin cuisine, I was ready. Being that the V spot is not far from Barclay center in Brooklyn, it wasn’t a tough commute to make so I invited friends to meet me. Before I even get into the food, my waiter really made the experience what it was. He was not only attentive, but he also took the time to talk to us as he joined into our conversation about world issues (we invited him). He was so intelligent and knowledgeable so it was refreshing to meet someone so dope here, plus he filled the mimosas up right on time.
I started with the bean empanada, which I’ve never tried but was looking to eat something new. It tastes exactly how it sounds, no added wow but dipping into the sauce here really made a difference in flavors.
I ordered the vegan pancakes as my friend ordered the tofu rancheros and we waited some time before it hit our table. The butter for the pancakes tasted like the butter I’m used to eating even though this didn’t have an ounce of dairy. I was really impressed at how good the butter was and lathered up my pancakes. I would have preferred more strawberries though, as they seem to be the ignored part of my dish, thrown on top of my pancakes for what seemed like no reason at all. I mean, I asked for them but they weren’t what I was expecting. Maybe I missed having whipped cream.
I could tell something was off from the flavors that I’m used to but the pancakes were really good. The tofu rancheros however, took my soul. I reached in for a bite of my friend’s and ended up ordering my own. It really felt like they covered this in scrambled eggs and the flavors were popping out from left to right. I would order this a million times over and it really sealed the deal for me at the V spot. Go there and get this dish, you will not be disappointed.
