In order to help out Meat free May pledgers this year, Birmingham FoE is testing restaurants that cater to vegetarians and vegans and telling you all about our findings! This way, people who are pledging to go meat free during May know where to go and what to get for a nice meal out. To be honest, its just an excuse for us to go out some more…
During the Mac’s Food Market last Sunday I went with some friends to try out The Vegan Grindhouse‘s burgers. The Vegan Grindhouse doesn’t have a restaurant, but tours round food markets and events instead. They offer a variety of vegan American-style burgers, ‘chicken’ and ‘beef’. All burgers come with a side of BBQ baked beans or coleslaw. The promise of proper Vegan American-style food had already been siren-calling me for some weeks, so I was very excited to chomp down on one of their burgers.
I choose the Mexican Stand Off, a quarter pounder served in a sesame seed bun with “cheese”, guacamole, salsa, red onion, jalapeños and sour “cream” and a side of coleslaw.
The burgers were delicious and disappeared very quickly once we had found a place to sit in the busy Mac. We thought the price was fair for the amount and quality of the food. Our only comment was that the BBQ baked beans tasted very much like normal beans.
