After our visit to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary we were feeling great but hungry so we snacked on our leftovers
and a few of these:
and one of these for our drive to Saratoga Springs:
After about an hour of driving we made it to our hotel for night which was a HUGE improvement over our Friday night hotel. I used Hotwire my go to resource for great inexpensive rooms and we got the Hyatt Place in Malta NY just outside of Saratoga Springs. Unfortunately my camera battery died during our visit to the animal sanctuary so I didn’t get a good shot of the room, however, the picture on the website is exactly what our room looked like so take a look:
After relaxing for a bit on the couch we finally headed out to see the town and get some dinner. Our first stop was the Olde Saratoga Brewery which has a tasting room and the best part you can taste what you want and the only cost to you is what you want to tip- great right? Well we stopped in and tried 2 brews each before heading to dinner.
After brews we headed to downtown Saratoga Springs for dinner at Karavalli an Indian restaurant that I read about online and was drawn to their vegan menu options. We started off with the Bhel Poori which was really interesting; it was like a savory rice crispy treat. We then shared the CHETTINADU VEGETABLE: A Tamilnadu Specialty:Vegetables in authentic spicy black pepper and roasted coconut sauce and the KUNDAPUR VEGETABLES: A Karnataka Specialty:Vegetables cooked with coconut milk and dry red chilies, tempered with curry leaves and mustard seeds.
The food was amazing and there was so much of it that we had to take some with us for lunch on Sunday. Although our meal was huge and we were pretty full we had a little room left (after a long walk around downtown) for one of these bad boys:
