Dallas welcomed yet another sexual double-entendre named eatery to the scene on Wednesday: the V Spot Vegan Café.

I paid a visit to the tiny space, wedged between the Pearl Cup and We Are 1976 on Henderson. The Rolling Stones' "Jumping Jack Flash" was playing, which seemed almost too appropriate, as the Rolling Stones logo is painted on the cafe's back wall.

Small rectangle tables -- garnished with taupe tablecloths and glass vases filled with water and floating heads of peach-colored roses -- lined an exposed brick wall. The space was dimly lit and filled with plants, some freestanding, others hanging from the ceiling, creating a warm and natural vibe.

The current menu is fairly simple, a one-sided sheet of paper boasting four categories: appetizers, soup of the day, salads and entrees. Everything is made in-house, and they get their herbs from Spiceman's F.M. 1410 each morning. Also, there are no tofu or meat substitutes to be found. Executive Chef Toria Villarreal and her team are currently working on a pizza menu as well as a raw vegan menu, smoothies, elixirs and desserts.

Here are some more photos from V Spot:

Went there the other night with my girlfriend. I had the "Fresh Market Vegetables" plate. All sauteed in a sweet and spicy chili sauce (far east style) on a bed of white and wild rice. It was amazing. She had the mushroom risotto which was also amazing and very "creamy". Although, I would prefer it as a side. My plate was much deeper and more complex. More fitting for a full meal. I'm very excited about this place. I won't be able to afford the smoothies, juices, and shots much, but I can't wait to try one every once in a while. The vegetables, rice, and risotto all had just the right amount of "bite", and the presentation was beautiful. Again the Vegetable plate was prettier with all it's glorious color and arrangement, but both were garnished well. The dinnerware is great as well. Nice dish-specific plates and thoughtful placement. The linen colors were all soothing and fitting. High ceiling with exposed beams gave me that great feeling of sitting outside with the comfort of HVAC. Server, and hostess/owner? were extremely friendly and conversational. Comfortable seats. Nice bathroom. CLEAN kitchen (albeit, brand spanking new..) They are still in the "soft-opening" phase, so if you go, don't be a bitch if they are out of something, don't have something yet..etc. This is an extremely hard business, and they are doing a great job so far, it seems. I'm excited. I'm also envious. I wish it was my place.

I'd eat that. It's Vegetarian Awareness Month, after all.

This place is going to have to expand! "Clean" food - that is, rich with flavors without drowning in creams and cheese. Perfect portion sizes in a warm ambience with attentive service. Dallas is lucky to have V Spot!
