vg burgers in boulder is closed. but really, who cares!
should i be sad that vg burgers, boulder colorado’s ONLY vegan restaurant, has now closed? i dunno, maybe. but it sucked big time. i went there on my birthday and had the most awful and expensive meal. everything was pre-packaged and not properly cooked. i know places like veggie grill proudly rock the generic frozen gardein in all their dishes, but at least they put some effort into it!
anyways, in memory of vg burgers, here are some snaps of my underwhelming birthday meal—-which cost $30 and tasted like 5. BTW ATTN ALL RESTAURANTS: IF YOU EVER SHUT DOWN, UPDATE YOUR FUCKING WEBSITE!
burnt frozen hot wings. $5.99
boca bacon cheeseburger. $9.99
reuben that i could make at home. $7.99
tempeh was out of a package—-not heated, seasoned, nothing!
sorry you closed, vg! but you truly gave vegan restaurants a bad name.
vegan buffalo wings are coming to tony’s darts away! aaaaaaaaah!
yesterday i was paying one of my semi-weekly visits to tony’s (i work super close by, so it’s a regular lunch spot) and i was lucky enough to taste test some spicy vegan wings that will soon be on the menu.
EXCELLENCE! they were super spicy and served with a fat pot of homemade vegan ranch. i was dining with friends, and we kept dipping into the ranch and putting it onto our meals. cannot wait for these to be a regular menu item. as if i needed a reason to frequent tony’s more often…
vegan super bowl @ tony’s
if you must watch football this weekend, tony’s darts away is the place to do it. they’re going nuts with a vegan super bowl menu that will include: wings with ranch dressing, tortilla chips and five layer dip, frito pie, and jackfruit sliders. the normal menu will be available as well.
oh, and golden road beers will be on sale for $3.50 each. TOUCHDOWN!
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.
today i met up with the team from the roxy and the folks from tony’s darts away at mohawk bend to discuss the next LA vegan beer fest. it’s happening this spring, and we’ll announce the dates soon, so lookout! until then, feast your eyes on all the amazing food we ate at mohawk:
a v is for vegan burger and a salad daze pizza
vegan buffalo wings made from cauliflower (my new favorite!)
the flash gordon salad (this was incredible. trust me, order it!)
and of course, beer.
can’t wait to fill you in on the latest LA vegan beer fest deets! this year is gonna be epic.
