This past Sunday, Brad and I visited Veggie Grill in University Village to try out their menu. I was excited to bring Brad along because the entire restaurant is dairy free so he could order anything he wanted!
A bit about Veggie Grill – it originally opened in 2006 and currently has restaurants in Seattle, Portland, Bay Area and LA area. They offer plant-based menu items which can be enjoyed in the restaurant or taken to-go. They also have online ordering which could be convenient for grabbing a quick lunch on a break.
We started off the meal with some delicious strawberry lemonade and mac and cheese. The mac and cheese includes organic rice pasta, vegan cheese sauce and bread crumbs. I have tried making dairy free mac and cheese in the past but had some failed attempts so I was excited when this mac and cheese was delicious! It was definitely both Brad and Kendra approved.
For the main course, Brad had the Grilled Veggie-Steak which also had pickles, lettuce, tomato and onion rings. I stole a few of his fries because they looked fresh and crispy. He enjoyed his sandwich and stated that the veggie-steak was good.
I enjoyed the BTLA which has smokey tempeh bacon, avocado, arugula and normally a tomato (however, since I don’t like tomatoes I swapped it out for an onion ring). I also had some delicious coleslaw (it was creamy and I also liked that it had raisins). The tempeh bacon tasted like normal bacon and the onion ring and avocado were a great addition to this sandwich.
For dessert, we enjoyed some grilled peaches that were tossed in agave and topped with vegan cream and a dash of cinnamon.
Brad and I had a great meal at Veggie Grill and will definitely return. The cream on top of the peaches were to die for and it didn’t taste dairy free at all.
Brad and I were provided with lunch in exchange for this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
