Twisted Sistas' Cafe, Moab, UT

After a long day of hiking in Moab, we were pretty hungry. I narrowed it down between two restaurants and we decided to give the Twisted Sistas' Cafe a go. Located right on the main road with a very colorful sign, it was easy to find.

Inside, the bar was bustling with lots of people enjoying happy hour. The wood rafters and balcony gave this place the feel of a country ranch while the colorful chairs and Christmas lights gave it a hippy spin.

We sat at a table for two. While there was only one vegan item on the menu, I was hoping we could find an appetizer as well. We inquired about the garlic herb flatbread with olive tapenade and the server assured us it was vegan. After ordering, she came back and said the flatbread was not vegan because there was dairy in it, but she could serve me some rice crackers with the tapenade instead. Okay, fine. It was actually pretty good! It went well with the wine as well.

For my entree, I ordered the vegan item on the menu -- Vegan Thai Vegetables. This coconut-based lime curry was loaded with squash, carrots, broccoli, red peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes. It looked really good and definitely hit the spot, but the sauce needed more flavor.

We spent about an hour there eating dinner. The service was okay, the atmosphere was a bit dry, and the food left something to be desired. Also, for this small town, I'd say the food was definitely overpriced as the entree alone was like $16!  Next time, I think I'd choose another place instead of this one, but the truth be told, it's a small town without a lot of options so there's only so many places to go! Perhaps grabbing dinner from the local co-op and enjoying it picnic style on the rocks is another option.
