We ate at an old place in North Miami called Here Comes the Sun. It's an old health food store and natural/vegetarian restaurant. They are well known for their Colombo frozen yogurt. I love that there are baskets of saltine crackers in every table, so you can munching while to peruse the menu.
I used to frequent the place as a child with my mom (she was a hippie back in the day, and used to work at a health food store). So I grew up eating tofu, sesame honey snacks and tiger's milk. We always used to stop in and get some frozen yogurt. I was excited to pay a visit to this nostalgic place. I ordered a sun burger:
I was relieved to know that it is a homemade veggie patty and its cooked rather than sun-baked. Phew. It was prey delicious and much thicker than I had imagined. It was served on a pita cut in half with salad in the middle. It comes plain but you can always put some sprouts and veggies from the salad in it, that's what I did. Next time I will order if with cheese (for the vegans, soy cheese is on the menu. I also poured some here comes the sun sauce, located on every table in a mustard bottle. It's a musk paste based sauce that was pretty tasty yet very simple. I couldn't finish the burger but I'm actually eating the other half in the car right now. For dessert I had to get some frozen yogurt. One thing about this place is that I have this childhood memory of the frozen yogurt being very tart, the way it SHOULD be. The last time I ordered frozen yogurt from there was when I was in high school. That was prob about 10 years post childhood visits. When I got the yogurt, my memory was tarnished because the yogurt wasnt the same. It wasn't tart the way I remember it. I decided to try the yogurt again and see if I could relive my childhood once again. Failure! It still isn't the same. It was just regular sweet vanilla frozen yogurt. Ugh, what a let down. Another let down in the size and price. You can see in the picture that its like a sample size of yogurt. That's on the menu as a 2oz I believe. I actually paid $2.50 for that thing! Davids mom is telling me that it was free but I'm pretty sure it wasn't.
Ok let me add some photos.
