Wassail, New York, NY

IMG_3543Wassail, which according to its website is pronounced Waes Hael (not sure their pronunciation key really helps), is a Cider bar in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood.  They have over a dozen cider options on tap and over a hundred bottles available.  For the uninitiated ordering involves discussions with the server that involves phrases and words like “fruit forward”, “earthiness”, “dryness” and “tartness”.

Wassail has a vegetarian menu that includes Scotch Eggs.  They use a very small egg, maybe a quail egg, and wrap it in polenta and parmesan cheese and fry it.  The eggs come three to an order, served with a mustard sauce.  I really enjoyed these vegetarian Scotch Eggs, the yolk was just barely cooked through and the polenta and parmesan cheese provided a nice savory flavor.  It was refreshing to see this vegetarian interpretation of the Scotch Egg.
