  • Peach BBQ Doughnut Burger Supreme: Juicy Beet-Kamut Patty, Roasted Butternut Squash-Cashew Cheeze, Onion Rings, Organic Greens, Housemade Peach BBQ Sauce, Pickled Red Onions
  • Godzilla Fries (Gluten Free): Handcut Kennebec Potatoes, Sesame-Ginger “Pork,” Wakame, Pickled Ginger + Carrots, Wasabi Aioli, Sour Apple-Yuzu Sauce
  • Korean Fried “Chicken” Sandwich: Crispy Gojujang “Chicken,” Housemade Kimchi, Spicy Pickled Cucumbers, Spicy Ginger Aioli served on Housemade Roll

It is always REALLY hard to decide what to order from HVE because everything looks soooooo good. They were also serving up these gems but we just couldn’t order everything:

  • Beer-Battered Cauliflower Tacos: Cauliflower, Wakame-Cabbage Slaw, Cilantro-Lime Cashew Crema served on 3 Corn Tortillas
  • Indian Summer Tacos: Two Paranthas topped with Organic Chickpea/Pea Paneer, Plum Chutney, Mint Chutney, Cilantro, Pickled Red Onions
  • Super Califas Salad (Gluten Free): Organic Greens, Soba Noodles, Pickled Papaya, Chile Roasted Cashews, Carrots, Green Onions

Thanks for an imaginative and mouthwateringly delicious meal, Hella Vegan Eats! What would I do without you? πŸ˜‰

We were thrilled to enjoy another delicious popup from the wonderful Hella Vegan Eats at Virgil’s Sea Room recently. It’s always really hard to decide what to order from them because it is all so darned tasty, but here’s what we tried this time (descriptions from the HVE menu):

Pistachio Pesto “Chicken” Sandwich: Served on Housemade Sprouted Seed Bread with Blistered Cherry Tomatoes and Cashew Cream
Chicken” N Waffles: Fluffy Cornmeal Waffle served with Panko-Crusted Layonna’s Market “Chicken,” Maple Syrup, Maple Butter

We cannot take credit for the creation this masterpiece, we got it “to go” from a Hella Vegan Eats popup at Dear Mom in San Francisco.

What you see pictured above is the Meen Deen Doughnut burger Supreme. Hella Vegan Eats describes this as a “Freekah-beet burger patty sitting pretty between two sugar doughnuts with heirloom tomatoes, kale, secret sauce, & pickled red onions.” Hella Vegan Eats is truly festive vegan cuisine! I haven’t stopped thinking about this heavenly burger since I quickly devoured it. Apologies for the less than stellar photo. To be honest we didn’t have time to set this shot up properly as our number one priority at that moment was eating that burger!

Many thanks to the glorious blog Vegansaurus for always tipping us off about great vegan events in the Bay Area.

Doughnut Factoid: People know a good thing when they eat one… the doughnut has existed since the dawn of time. To this day archaeologists continue to unearth fossilized pieces of what look like doughnuts in prehistoric Native American settlements.
