Seva has made a name for itself in Ann Arbor, serving fresh and delicious vegetarian cuisine. Now, they have opened a second location in Detroit. Don’t turn your nose up at the word “vegetarian”. Dining there, you won’t even feel like a protein is missing from the plate. On the contrary, each dish is packed with flavor and deliciousness. I couldn’t decide what to order off the Seva menu because everything sounded so good!
Seva, is very conveniently located on Forest, between Woodward and John R. It’s smack dab in the middle of the Wayne State district, the DMC, MOCAD and everything else. Great and convenient location.
My sister-in-law had already had dinner so she had the house salad with ranch ($4).
I couldn’t decide what to order, so I asked the waiter what their signature dish was. He said the Enchiladas Calabaza! So, I went for it.
Enchiladas Calabaza are made with – Butternut squash, cream cheese and green onions with chiles, cumin and a hint of cinnamon, baked in organic corn tortillas, topped with spicy tomato sauce & cheese, served with house-made corn chips & salsa ($13.00).
My oh my was that a good choice! It was amazing with the creamy squash, tangy sweet tomato sauce, and cheesy goodness. I’m drooling as I write this. So good. I would love to have some right now. It does come with chips and salsa. I could’ve done without those. The chips were not crunchy enough and just detracted from the dish. More enchiladas por favor!
Mike had the Cilantro Peanut Stirfry made with – Stir-fried broccoli, red & yellow peppers, mushrooms, mung sprouts, carrots and green onions with a spicy cilantro-peanut-ginger-lime sauce, over organic brown rice, topped with roasted peanut ($12). He said it was delicious. I had a taste. It was pretty good.
Sam can’t see a Portabella Burger on any menu and not order it. His all time favorite is at Bastone, and its usually hard to stack up to anywhere since at Bastone they put a big dollop of garlic & herb Boursin cheese.
Portabella Burger made with – Organic, chargrilled portabella mushroom on an organic bun, with lettuce, tomato, cheese and sauce ($11). All sandwiches are served with Yam fries.
He liked the burger, but Bastone’s is still his favorite. The yam fries were refreshing to have instead of regular fries. They were absolutely perfect.
They are also known for their freshly squeezed juices and smoothies. My SIL had the Tropics blended drink – Frozen strawberries, bananas and mango nectar ($5). She loved it.
I would definitely recommend dining there, or stopping in for lunch. The food was fresh and delicious, the service was good and the new location is awesome. Also, expect this to be a popular spot. Word was barely out about their new Detroit location and it was pretty full. Seva gets a hell yeah! from me. How was your experience?
