Vegetarian Cuisine, Upscale Diner

Herbivore doesn’t offer many surprises for the vegetarian foodie: they push the run-of-the-meal dishes that most vegetarian eaters have come to know and love (lentil loaf, anyone?) and they do it pretty well.

Some interesting exceptions:
They serve some veganize-d cocktails, like a mojito with agave nectar instead of sugar, and a irish coffee with soy milk and whipped cream (that I review below.) Their beer selection is also fun – think pear ciders, raspberry beers, and yes, they have pitchers of fat tire & blue moon.

Their desserts (because everyone always wants to know about the desserts) include vegan ice cream in flavors like mudslide and lemon poppy seeds. Also, they’ve got vegan donuts.

Their decor has kind of a diner-with-pretensions look to it.

Large Green Salad

Mixed greens, grilled tofu, cucumbers, carrots, avocado, red cabbage, onions, bean sprouts, tomatoes, red beets and mint. I chose vegenaise thyme dressing, which was absolutely wonderful, and a big round of applause, ’cause the kitchen was very generous with the avocado. Salad was large and filing; I could barely finish it, let alone touch the bread they brought with it.

pad thai

They don’t skimp on the peanut sauce – the noodles come in a giant pool of it. Smaller than most servings you see, but really, how many quarts of peanut sauce can you consume in one sitting?

herbivore irish coffee

The disappointment of the evening. I was excited to try it with soy milk and soy whipped cream, but it didn’t much matter what was in it, because all I could taste was whiskey. It was so strong that it was gross, and each sip felt like doing a shot. I was hoping for more of a mix of creamy/coffee/boozy, but it wasn’t to be. Not helping? The fact that the soy milk broke into little unattractive beads in the clear glass. Ew.
