freshcraft in denver: food & brews!

denver colorado is one of america’s top beer cities, and it’s also home to some of the tastiest vegan food i’ve ever eaten—-who’dve thought! on our latest trip there (you already read about our debaucherous meals at city o’ city), we hit up freshcraft: one of the town’s best beer bars that happens to boast a surprisingly vegan-friendly menu. here’s what we ate:

fresh avocado salad wrap: sliced avocado, marinated rice noodles, shaved cabbage, radicchio, red onion. (no honey vinaigrette!) garnished with cashews and chili sauce. $8

mole bello tacos: cocoa chili marinated roasted mushrooms, southwestern slaw, tomato junks, creamy lime sauce. (this dish is VEGAN by DEFAULT! it even says so on the menu!) $8.75

drown it all in some oskar blues hot sauce and i’m good to go. 

oh we also drank the shit outta several avery beers. i promise to take pictures of them next time i go.

denver rules, and don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.

city o’ city: too good for words.

words can’t adequately describe how much i love city o’ city in denver. it’s an entirely vegetarian bar/pizza place where everything can be made vegan—-and they’ve recently doubled the size of the menu and even added breakfast options. here’s what a table full of friends and i ate last time i was there (during the 2011 GABF):

buffalo seitan wings with “ranch” and celery.

fork & knife sandwich: meatless loaf with gravy and fries on a pretzel served with sautéed greens.

fried pickles drizzled with malt vinegar gastrique. 

florentine pizza with olive oil, tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, homemade vegan cheese and rosemary.

the wings and the fork & knife sandwich were especially memorable. i’d say if you’re ever anywhere near denver, it’s worth making a special trip to city o’ city. wish we had a place like this in LA.

i eat, i drink, i take lots of photos.
