  • Went there today!

    I arrived with my girlfriend at about 4pm. The beer garden was pretty packed with people, which made for a festive mood.

    We got to the front of the small line only to discover they were out of bbq sandwiches and chips.

    Bummer, but we both ordered the Bahn Mi with slaw, and we were both extremely pleased.

    The seitan was not chewy, but almost cake-like. And the flavors inside were amazing. They didn’t marinate the seitan in sauce…the flavors were baked right into the seitan. Slightly crusty bread stuffed with seitan, carrots, cilantro, white onions and some kind of veganaise sauce.

    No jalepenos, as the photo above suggests, but still spicy and flavorful.

    The slaw was also terrific. It was crunchy, spicy and cold, and made for a perfect side dish on a hot day.

    We had enough cash leftover to try a Lambic popsicles, and it was awesome! I’m not much of a drinker, but this was fruity sweet with a nice beer flavor. Wish we had enough cash for 2!

    Thanks for letting your fellow vegans know what’s up!!!
