While I’m not the hugest fan of celebrating my birthday, when Veggie Grill calls and asks if they can throw you and your friends a party to taste the new summer menu, you don’t say no! I’m already a huge fan of the all-vegan fast casual restaurant that is taking Southern California by storm. I eat there on the regular and am thrilled with the new summer options! Let me walk you through the new menu items:
This is the new Mediterranean Toss with house “feta”. I like this salad a lot! It’s light and fresh and the tofu “feta” is really nice! Perfect for summer!
Next up is the Chargrilled Street Corn. You may remember this from last summer. I don’t think I stepped in a VG last summer without ordering this. It’s SO good!!!! If you only go to Veggie Grill to taste this one menu item it would be worth it! Perfection!
The Haricot Verts are the new veggie side for summer and they are super yummy! Perfectly blistered and tossed in tahini sauce, these beans are not your average side dish!
Veggie Grill reworked the previous Sonoran Bowl to bring you the Summer Sonoran Bowl! I actually prefer this one. They added that crazy delicious grilled corn. This dish is hearty, nutritious and perfect.
Finally, behold the menu item I was most excited about trying: the Grilled Quinoa + Veg Burger. Veggie Grill has some other burgers that are fine, but nothing crazy amazing to me. This burger is now going to be a staple in my ordering. The patty is a black bean base with quinoa, kale, and mushrooms. It’s topped with a piece of Chao Cheese (coconut based) and served with a side of my favorite fries in the universe. I’m very very excited about this burger. Here’s one more look:
Lynn and I having a minor freak out moment over the new burger lol!
What’s a birthday without a little cake?? They served up a double decker signature carrot cake. So much fun and so much good food! What an excellent way to spend my birthday 🙂 If you want to catch me this summer, just meet me at Veggie Grill!
