October is always a busy month for me, and last week was even more hectic than usual. Unfortunately, that meant I was able to visit only one of the restaurants participating in the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge. On the bright side, that restaurant was a good one -- Baagan, which is all vegan all the time.
I hadn't been to Baagan since they moved into their new location, so I turned on my GPS and headed to Rocklin. There are so many good things on Baagan's regular menu that I was momentarily distracted, but I finally remembered why I was there and ordered one of everything on their Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge menu.
Their entrée is a plate of two cauliflower tacos, roasted cauliflower served with a spicy mix of onions and peppers, then topped with shredded cabbage and an avocado drizzle. Very tasty!
Along with the tacos, I ordered the green chile sweet potato side dish. The spicy green chiles provided a surprising and flavorful contrast to the creamy sweet potatoes.
Dessert was a soft chewy brownie, drizzled with salted caramel sauce. Delicious!
Baagan is located at 2620 Sunset Boulevard, Suite 1, in Rocklin, and their phone number is 916-824-1688.
