About a week ago, I had a few meetings in Fort Collins, Colorado. First — Fort Collins rocks — think small-town, college feel…tree-lined streets and tons of bungalow-style houses. About an hour north of Denver, it’s a nice retreat from the hustle of the city, but it’s still full of life and completely worth a day visit. Best of all, if you’re vegan and ever find yourself in this adorable college town, you’re in luck — I found a gem called Tasty Harmony.
Tasty Harmony’s mantra of “tasty vegetarian goodness” was exactly what I needed — and, for a hungry vegan, this place really delivered. Their mission is as follows: “Tasty Harmony is committed to provide our community with healthy organic plant based cuisine. Most of our food is vegan and most of our desserts are wheat free and sugarcane free. Though we may not be able to always use 100% certified organic ingredients due to unavailability or cost effectiveness, we will always strive to bring you the best that nature has to offer in a creative and tasty way.”
Tasty Harmony is furnished with several live plants and a cool, calming color palette. I was instructed to sit anywhere I liked (a bonus — who really wants to be told where to sit, anyway?) and was greeted by a smiling server with a genuinely enthusiastic love for where he worked. He seemed wholeheartedly excited to have me there…and that rocked.
With a huge selection of tea (they use reverse-osmosis water, by the way — how cool is that?) and tons of organic beers and wines, Tasty Harmony can first quench any thirst. I had a simple sencha green tea to keep me fueled for my meetings that day.
Per the suggestion of my server, I ended up choosing the “Royal Hawaiian,” which is a huge serving of teriyaki stir fry of red and green cabbage, carrots, zucchini, mung beans, bell pepper, pineapple and red onion sauteed in coconut oil and served over brown rice. Hearty, flavorful, and so organically delicious, this plate is! What I have to say I liked the most about Tasty Harmony was the fact that, unlike the way “healthy” restaurants sometimes skimp on the serving sizes, Tasty Harmony served me a heaping pile of this vegan goodness…and I ate every last bite.
All in all, I was so glad to have stumbled into Tasty Harmony. I give this place 5 out of 5 stars on the Vegan Goodness scale, no doubt at all. Vegans on a visit to Colorado — put this on your must-eat list!
