    hey everyone, just a quick post to let you know that mendocino farms is testing a new vegan sandwich tomorrow…a mushroom seitan sloppy joe…and you should go show it some support. if it does well, they may extend its run or even add it to the regular menu! i haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but it was available today at all mendocino locations and is going to be around tomorrow as well…hopefully longer. i am already a huge fan of mendocino farms’ vegan sandwiches, so i’d love for them to add another one to the list.

    Vegan Mushroom Sloppy Joe! Mushroom Braised Seitan (“Wheat Meat”) Sloppy Joe with Portobello Mushroom Confit, Almond Romesco, and Baby Spinach on Toasted Ciabatta. $9.25

    a reader sent me this mendocino farms facebook update today about mendo’s new vegan mushroom seitan sloppy joe and i called the restaurant immediately. the dude on the phone was super helpful and told me this was just a result of chef judy getting “creative in the kitchen” and that they wanted to test the sandwich for a couple days on customers and see how it does. he told me it would definitely be around tomorrow (friday), and if response is good, possibly longer. LET’S MAKE SURE THE RESPONSE IS GOOD. i need more mushroom-flavored seitan and portobello confit sandwiches in my life! seriously, mendocino makes the kind of fresh fancy food that vegans should be eating. it’s all made from crazy top-notch ingredients and is super fresh…as they say on their website “we like to try to reconstruct “Fine Dining” entrees to the sandwich level and take classic regional sandwiches and give them a modern interpretation.” if you have ever tasted a mendocino farms sandwich, you’ll know that’s true.

    so please, vegans, get to mendocino farms on friday! they’ve got 2 locations downtown and one in marina del rey. let’s flood them for orders with vegan sandwiches. and if mushroomy seitany sloppy joes aren’t your thing, they also have a vegan dosa wrap and a vegan soyrizo wrap. (just be sure to specify that you want a tortilla with no honey!) basically, all vegans should go and taste the amazing-ness that is mendocino farms!

    PS:mendocino, if you are reading this…PLEASE specify in your email newsletter which daily dishes are vegan! i noticed you stopped doing that about a month ago. >:(

  • Yum! I didn’t know they had a location in Marina del Rey. This is close to where my wife works, I’ll check it out the next time I pick her up.

  • I’ve wanted to try Mendocino farms for a long time, but unless they want to expand their DTLA operating days to the weekend, it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever eat there.

    Looks great!!

  • FYI, ya’ll… if you place an order for pickup, BE SURE TO MAKE SURE THEY GAVE YOU WHAT YOU ORDERED BEFORE YOU LEAVE! I love Mendocino Farms when they get it right, but twice, I’ve called in an order for a vegan sandwich or wrap, picked it up, taken it home and opened it up to find myself confronted with a bunch of meat and cheese. Again, I love them when they get it right, but since this has happened to me twice, I always check it before I leave!

  • ate the sloppy joe as a salad today. incredibly delicious- thanks for the heads up as always!

  • I just had the sandwich today, and it is DELICIOUS!!!! Oh, I so hope they make it a regular!
