I had been dying to go to Leafy since it opened in July (now that I’m writing it out, it doesn’t seem like so long but whatever). I got there at 2:07PM and there was already a line (it opens at 2PM Wednesday-Sunday). Luckily, the line went quickly and by the time our food/drinks were done we were able to sit at one of the tables. I must warn you that the place is extremely small. Since it was my first time, I wanted to take in the whole experience by dining in.
To drink, I had the matcha with red beans and almond pudding. My Mom and Sister got the Vietnamese coffee with a milk-tea bear. Both were great! The drinks may seem pricey but they come in a large cup with major presentation points (plus the bear topping is only a $1 more). The bear takes a bit to melt and is not very practical, but it is worth it for the picture and experience!
For lunch, I had the pork belly sandwich. It was not like the cuban pork belly I am used to but it had great flavor. All of the ingredients were fresh and flavorful (and there was a bit of a kick). Only critique I would give was that I wanted more pork belly – the bread (although, super soft and delicious) was a bit big for the meat portion. My Sister got the fried sticky rice with pulled pork and thoroughly enjoyed it; I tried it and it also had excellent flavor.
I loved the experience! It was a superb midweek treat.
