    kimberly and dan who are currently based in china couldn’t make it to the huge new year’s eve shindig at tony’s darts away, so they decided to create their own. they started out with homemade usr (ultra super rad) sauce using vegenaise, chinese chili, ground red pepper, frank’s xtra hot, and tofutti better than cream cheese. they also made homemade potato chips fried in a wok…

    and used some hong kong vegan sausages to make tony’s-style dogs…

    Smalls: Vegenaise and dijon mustard (Dan used USR hot sauce instead of Vegenaise). Bigs: Grilled peppers & onions and shredded Follow Your Heard cheddar.

    looks awesome to me! you can read more about it on kimberly’s blog.

    casey sends us these pics from the last super at fatty’s and writes, “it was the best meal that we’ve had there!
