Hi y'all! It's been a while, but rest assured I've been eating well, both near and far. For this post, let's talk about near:
I'm not sure why I've never written about Straw before, but this carnival-themed eatery comes complete with a separate vegan menu full of tasty tasty options, like the portobello sandwich (above) served up with their infamously good sweet potato tots. The star of the show? A blueberry bbq sauce for dipping. YUM. I inhaled it before I snapped a picture, but I highly recommend their "hippie love" salad too. The combination of the peppery arugula, tangy cider vinaigrette, and briny green olives makes no sense (at least to me) but it really really works.
In other news, I finally tried the nachos at Herbivore and OMG they are the best things ever. I am always dubious when it comes to plant-based cheeses, but whatever they are using, it kicks ass. Crispy chips covered in cheddar and sour cream with plenty of beans and guacamole and salsa really hit the spot. Try some, trust me. They are addictive and I want more right now.
Ok, I'll be back soon with some more eats by the bay soon. Meanwhile, eat well!
