Menu for Aroma Espresso Bar
Anyone know where I can find a menu (online) for Aroma Espresso Bar on Houston and Greene? Menupages hasn't posted one yet...
I don't think they have an English website, yet. I tried several things there last week, including a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich (this was my favorite item), an omelet sandwich, a mozzerella and tomato sandwich, a mixed salad, and a power breakfast (eggs, vegetables and salad). Everything was good, although nothing blew me away, except for the cappucinos, which have been amazing the two times I had them. The bread on which the sandwiches were served was excellent. The ingredients were all fresh.
I don't think Aroma is a destination place for a meal, but their coffee drinks are great, it's a pleasant place to hang out, and the food is all decent.
I went for lunch the other day and was disappointed. The bread on the sandwiches is not very good (too thick and spongy IMHO). The salad was o.k., but the chicken in it wasn't great.
I also ordered an iced coffee my first time there -- which cost $3.90, the same as an iced cappucino, I think. Crazy!
They also have a boreka, a philo pastry filled with white cheese, which lacks cheese flavor. Even there was some cheese in it, it did not taste like white cheese. I was not impressed by it, but i will try their breakfast plate next time, that looked pretty good.
From what I understand--it is truly an offshoot of the Israeli Aroma chain. In which I case, I agree with the poster who said it is not really a food destination. But, I am DYING to go, since I miss Aroma very much!
