Our first time trying Miyoko’s Chao vegan cheese. This was the Aged English Smoked Farmhouse. I though it was really good but it was too smoky for Nova.
The Beyond Meat Beast burger. Looked like hamburger. Cooked like hamburger. Had the texture of hamburger. Taste like hamburger? Idk I don’t recall what hamburger tastes like lol. All in all was pretty good and would eat again. Topped with special sauce (sriracha vegenaise and pickle) chopped onion and spinach.
The Anchor in Wichita. We go to the Anchor for their great beer selection but hadn’t eaten there in a while as last we checked they didn’t have anything meatless that didn’t have a bunch of cheese. Was happy to find out that since we last looked at the menu they added a black bean burger.
The flavor was really good but the texture not firm and the bun was soft so it made for mushy mess. The fries were good but hard to dip due to their short length.
Update: Went a second time and the burger was firmer and better. Cooked longer I assume.
Instant yakisoba Noodles in pumpkin sauce with baby spinach and sautéed mushrooms. Topped with red pepper flakes.
I sauteed the mushrooms and once done I put in a couple dollops of pumpkin and a few splashes of almond milk and stirred till creamy. Then added the cooked noodles and greens and tossed around.
Some of what and where we ate on our recent fall vacation. There were others that weren’t noteworthy or I didn’t get photos of.
Our first night in New Albany, MS we ate at veggie burgers at Burger King which was within walking distance of our hotel. The 2nd night after a long day of riding on the Tanglefoot Trail we had veggie fajitas at El Agave Mexican Grill.
Our first night in Abingdon, VA we ate at Jack’s 128 Pecan, where I had a black bean burger. Nova had Hot Thai Sesame Peanut Noodles which I liked even better than my burger. 128 Pecan is a small converted wood house off the main street. We didn’t get to see inside as we ate on the patio.
Our 2nd night in Abingdon, VA following our 1st day riding the Virginia Creeper we both had Asian stir fry at the Peppermill. The Peppermill is a converted large old brick house on the main street. Bedrooms have become dining rooms. Sorta schmancy.
Garden omelette for me and a waffle for Nova at Huddle House in Abingdon, VA after our 2nd day on the Virginia Creeper. First time eating at a Huddle House and it was exactly like I’d expect it to be. This was within walking distance of our hotel which was nice.
Grilled cheese sandwich with mushroom and onion (if I recall corectly) for me and a salad for Nova at the Bearded Moose in Richlands, VA. It was a rainy day we couldn’t ride so we just drove around in the hills and came across this town and restaurant.
Shoney’s salad bar in Hillsville, VA. There wasn’t a large selection of restaurants in town. There was Mexican and Asian but we’d pretty much burned ourselves out on those earlier in the trip so we ate here 3 nights in a row while we rode the New River trail. Really good.
Normally we eat breakfast at the hotel but where we were staying didn’t offer a continental breakfast so it was the Wild Egg in Nashville where I had eggs benedict florentine and Nova a waffle. It was good but way more food and richness than I need first thing in the morning.
We went several years avoiding dairy and eggs but as you can see we now occasionally include them in our diet mostly out of convenience when eating on the road.
Quinoa burger at Dempsey’s Burger Pub – Wichita. We weren’t too fond of it. The texture was too mushy. We later found out the quinoa is mixed with potato to make the patty. They also offer a portobello burger. Not sure if we’ll return to try it or not.
Veggie burrito at Best Burrito in Harrisonville, Missouri. We both thought it was really good.
Excellent Veggie hummus wrap from Morub Seasoning at the Pedaler’s Jamboree Iowa.
Avocado sandwich and pasta salad at Merle’s Place in Wichita. A favorite of ours.
Black bean burger at Chili’s.
