When most of us think of “comfort food,” we think of mouthwatering sliders, salty snacks, and, above all, spicy, crispy “wings.” Dedication to a cruelty-free diet shouldn’t mean having to sacrifice your favorite guilty pleasures. Try vegan cauliflower wings at Willow NYC to see how delicious the possibilities can be!
With natural ingredients, innovative creativity, and professionally trained chefs who care, your guilty pleasure should be guilty no more. At Willow, we take pride in elevating all your classic bistro favorites to an unforgettable level. Best of all, every bite is entirely vegan!
Exceptional Vegan Cauliflower Wings
It’s no secret that cauliflower has become a foodie phenomenon in recent years. Hearty, nutritious, and low in carbohydrates, this mild flavored veggie has snuck its way into all manner of unexpected places: pizza crusts, “rice” dishes, and– most deliciously– wings.
All too often, restaurants serve cauliflower wings as a throwaway option, serving up “fried from frozen” wings as a way of checking off the vegan box on their menu. Not at Willow! As always, our chefs prepare this dish completely from scratch. We take advantage of the freshest ingredients and latest training to ensure that every bite on your plate is something to be savored.
Our cauliflower wings are lightly panko-crusted, allowing you to enjoy the crisp exterior without being weighed down with greasy breading. Our chefs provide two flavor options: BBQ or buffalo sauce. On the side, enjoy dipping crisp carrots and celery into our housemade blue “cheese” dip.
Though this meal is available on our appetizer menu, don’t be afraid to turn this into your meal! Enjoy making your own combo by adding any of our sides: grilled broccolini, hand-cut fries, house salad, or creamed spinach.
Whether you share this dish or keep it all for yourself, you’re guaranteed to love our vegan cauliflower wings at Willow NYC!
“Guilty Pleasures” Elevated
If Willow’s fresh, vegan menu has one thing, it is options. We take pride in elevating every dish to a new level. Check out more of your favorite guilty pleasures as you’ve never seen them before!
Traditional calamari can combine a few guilty elements: fried foods and seafood. According to research from the Marine Conservation Society, squid is ultimately an unwise option for anyone hoping to care for their environment. Even plentiful squid species make a huge impact on their biosystems, and the manner in which they are typically caught takes a toll on the surrounding species.
For a cruelty-free choice, turn to the oyster “calamari” option at Willow NYC!
Rather than relying on fish, our chefs use chewy, savory mushroom oysters to recreate this favorite appetizer. With crispy panko crusting and a housemade herb marinara sauce, these tasty snacks are sure to be your latest favorite craving. A squirt of lemon and a dash of horseradish mayo– completely vegan, of course– complete this appetizer with a light, tangy finish.
Any restaurant can serve a plate of french fries, but no one does it quite like Willow!
As always, our chefs go a step beyond the norm to bring this common dish up to the classic Willow standard. Every fry is hand cut and served up fresh, steaming, and fried to perfection. Crunchy on the outside with a fluffy, earthy center, these french fries top the charts as one of our most popular sides, both for snacking or as part of the main meal.
Our fries come in three different options: garlic and parsley, cajun seasoned, or simply salted. No matter your craving, you’ll find what you need to stay satisfied!
