Vinnie’s Pizza, Brooklyn

Published March 21, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

so weekends are not going to be my most plentiful blog posting time, because i do actually have a weekend job doing open houses for swanky apartments. this weekend’s was in the upper east side. anyway, i called kassidy yesterday to meet up after i got out, and met up with her back in brooklyn. now kass has been telling me for some time that i needed to go to vinny’s pizza, and so we did.

vinnie’s pizza is a regular pizza joint that offers up some inventive vegan options as well. best of all you can get them by the slice! we stopped by the [original] bedford location yesterday and got two different slices, cut in two, to share. 1. mac attack pizza. mac’n’cheese, meat crumbles, and i think hot sauce, on a pizza. mmm. 2. bbq chick’n pizza. bbq sauce, “chicken”, onions. SO good.  i snapped a quick pic of kass, but i don’t think you can really see the pizza too well. we will return soon for vegan pizza goodness.

Foodswings! Brooklyn

Published March 19, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

i love foodswings!

it’s in brooklyn, @ 295 Grand Street. this was my third visit and every time i go it’s difficult to decide what to try. it’s an entirely vegan fast food place. they have burgers, fries, corn dogs, chicken wings, lots of flavors of milkshakes, etc. not the healthiest vegan food you can find, but it sure is tasty.

sweet southern fried bbq wing and corn dog

sausage and peppers parm

chik’n cutlet bacon ranch

homemade chili con seitan & sour cream

the bbq wing was insanely delicious. i had read rave reviews about the wings, and was not disappointed. they have several flavors, so it’s a good excuse to order them all. the texture was great.

the chili was good, though i added a lot of hot sauce. jordan liked his sausage and peppers. my sandwich was pretty dry. it only had a little bit of desiccated looking ranch. it needed some veganaise, bad. the lovely sarah ate a gyro, and said it was good too. oh, and the fries were awesome! i didn’t remember the fries being that good the last time.  the corn dog did not really have a cornbread outside, more of a cornmeal coating. i would’ve preferred the former.

overall, the chicken wing was the winner today, but i’ll be back!
