As a chronically veggie-maximizing foodhist wacko, my preference is always to see more vegetables of greater variety on any menu. If there were smoked eggplant, or some kind of habanero mango coleslaw, or stuffed jalapenos, I’d add em in a heartbeat. It would be nice to see piles of shredded lettuce, jicama with lime, or shredded raw cabbage available to increase the micronutrient composition, fiber and water content of the wrap, burrito or bowl… maybe co-owner Sasha Shor (who I had the pleasure to meet when I was there) will hear my plea and add some more veggies to the offerings…:)
To those who want to eat healthy, but don’t want to abandon great taste, Trés Carnes is a fantastic option. There’s something primal and satisfying about the taste of slow smoke cooking… and their smoker is on premises, right in view as you order. Satisfying the craving for genuine barbecue (which is smoke cooking - not backyard grilling) in New York usually means a trip to Daisy May’s, Virgil’s, Brother Jimmy’s, Hill Country, Smoke, Sylvia’s, Dinosaur or some other favorite location and a commitment to fifteen hundred calories of hog fat, brown sugar and molasses. At Trés Carnes, the aficionado can have that experience in the context of a healthy, relatively light meal.
