Wayward Vegan Cafe, Round 2

Our last meal in Seattle was a return trip to Wayward Vegan Cafe. There were too many things left behind on the menu that we hadn’t tried yet.

I got the breakfast biscuit sandwich. Who doesn’t like old school hash browns? My only complaint is that it was basically scramble on a biscuit which was kind of hard to pick up and eat. Omelet style would have been easier.

Kevin got the blintz. Some vegan blintzes in Atlanta would be awesome.

Someone got pancakes. I’m not sure who.

And we got a club sandwich to eat on the plane later. It held up pretty well. I bet it was delicious right out of the kitchen.

And that’s the end of the Seattle gorge fest. :-(

In the Bowl Vegetarian Noodle Bistro

So there are still a few Seattle posts to go…

In the Bowl Vegetarian Noodle Bistro isn’t just vegetarian, but vegan. W00t! It’s mostly Thai with a few more generic dishes if you’re a hater.

These are the Full-filled Your Dreams fried wontons: Deep fried vegan wonton skin wrapper which are being filled with vegetarian meat paste and tofu cream cheese then served with sweet and sour sauce.

They have tons of fake meat options. I rarely get duck, so I thought I’d try it in the form of Roasted Duck Curry: A perfect matched of curry paste, soy protein roasted duck, coconut milk, cherry tomato, pineapple, bell pepper and fresh basil served with rice vermicelli noodle, white or brown rice.

This was good, but where the duck really shined was in the salad Beth ordered, the Spicy Roasted Duck Salad: Marinated roasted duck tossed with red onion, green onion and our homemade chili-lime sauce then served over sliced of green apple and garnished with crispy chow mien and cilantro. Too bad I didn’t take a picture.

 

Vegan Bahn Mi

Our last day in Seattle, I was on a mission to put some vegan bahn mi in my mouth. It worked out just right to swing by the downtown Cafe Pho and get some sammiches. They don’t have a vegan version of the mayonnaise sauce so we just left that off. Still delicious. Maybe I should use some of my time off next week to make some at home.

 

Chaco Canyon Organic Café and views

Okay, so maybe it was time to find the healthier side of vegan food in Seattle. Chaco Canyon Organic Café seemed like it might do the trick. Whose waffle is this? I’m definitely waiting too long to post this stuff…

This is a small Hippie Bowl which I would be happy eating some version of every day, any meal. Tofu, carrots, quinoa and sprouts in a tahini sauce.

And this juice was delicious, whatever it was.

Kevin had the Tofu Scramble Sandwich.

And a samosa made with sweet potatoes.

After this, we dropped Jared off at the airport and went up in the Columbia Center to check out the view. It was the clearest day of our trip, but we were still denied awesome mountain views.

 

 

 

 

 

Plum Bistro & Portishead

Of course we went to Plum Bistro while we were in Seattle. The raving about the Mac & Yease could not be ignored. It seemed like it might be healthier than Soul Vegetarian’s but just as creamy and tasty. What put it over the top for me was the crusty bits.

We also got a plate of sliders, three different types, that we cut up in pieces so we could all try them. And their slider size is about normal home burger size.

My entrée was Fennel Grilled Tempeh with a polenta cake and greens.

I think Kevin had the Country Fried Seitan Steak sandwich. But I’m not sure. It looks more like that than the Crazy Jamaican.

Taylor & Kevin full of noms.

And, later that evening, the whole reason for the trip, Portishead. This was easily one of the best sounding shows I’ve ever seen. The crowd was so respectful that they held most cheering and noise for between songs. Everyone was nearly silent.
