Vegan MoFo 2013:14 Seattle Week of Food

From the Queen Anne lookout point.

My parents were here this last week, and boy did we eat! We had a fantastic time, and the days just flew by. So even though I was hoping to beat my number of MoFo posts from last year, I’m not the least bit sorry. Also, congratulations to Sara, who won the Barnana giveaway! I hope you enjoy your snacks, Sara!

And now as I squeeze in my last MoFo post, with less than 2 hours to spare, I’m going to take you on a crash course of Seattle vegan food! Here we go…

We started off their trip with a drive up to Greenlake to pick up Thomas, and headed straight to our fave place for Mexican, El Chupacabra, located in Phinney Ridge. This is the perfect place to take anyone who loves Mexican food (and even those who don’t!). They can make just about anything on the menu vegan, and everything is marked clearly. They have Gardein chicken & steak, as well as Morningstar meat for vegetarians, and plenty of other choices for omni diners. This is my taco salad w/o cheese, and with vegan steak. Delicious!

My mom has just been getting into good beer, and was dying to check out a brewery for dinner, so naturally we took her to Elysian in Capitol Hill. We were still a bit full from lunch, so I just helped Thomas eat his VEGAN BURGER $11 – Field Roast vegan patty charbroiled on toasted ciabatta with sauteed peppers & onions, tomato jam and organic bibb lettuce. I had been there a couple of times before, but never to eat, and was surprised to see that they had a few awesome sounding choices that were clearly marked vegan. This sandwich was just as good as it sounds. Tomato jam? YES. My parents LOVED this place.

Tuesday was my dad’s birthday, and my day off, so we went down to stroll by the waterside and to check out Pike Place Market. This is how they found out about the lie that is Seattle weather. This was supposed to be a “really crappy day”.

After a brisk start through Pioneer Square, the clouds cleared, the sun came out, and so did my umbrella. (Though the atypical storm we had the last couple of days sort of made up for it, I guess!)

We ended up in Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, where we were fascinated by their resident mummies… (for more weird attractions in Seattle, click here)

And where I stumbled onto this antique Vampire Killer Kit (Eep!) containing a bible, a crucifix, holy water, a stake and a mallet. (Why does everyone want to kill us?!)

wpid-CAM00700.jpg

After all this strolling it was snack time, so we headed to Pike Place Bar & Grill. I got the hummus and veggies with pita.

wpid-CAM00701.jpg

We had drinks at the hotel, and then headed down to West Seattle’s Elliot Bay Brewing Company for dinner where my mom got the flight of beer she’d been after. After having some excellent bourbon with my pops earlier, I opted to try the root beer that they have on draft, which was terrific. They have vegetarian items clearly marked, and I got the Quinoa Garbanzo Salad $8.95 sans cheese. Mine was pretty good, except I thought the house made pickles they served along side were a bit too acidic. Thomas had the Pan Seared Tofu sandwich (not pictured), which sounded vegan except for the side of lemon mint aioli. (PS-Menu says all breads are buttered except the spent grain buns!) My parents really like this place too.

Sorry for the lighting on this one!

I got out of work at noon on Wednesday, so I was able to meet up with my parents for lunch. I took Britt’s recommendation for an omni/veggie sandwich shop, the Honey Hole in Cap Hill. We had passed it many times, but never checked it out. They veganized the Bellisimo $8 for me by holding the cheese and subbing Vegenaise for the red pepper mayo.  Smoked Tomato Field Roast, roma tomatoes, sauteed onions, banana peppers, fresh basil, vegenaise, and a splash of red wine vinegar on a demi baugette. OH MY YUM. I will definitely be back here so Thomas can check it out.

Mighty-Os from another day

I thought they might enjoy a trip to Mighty-O Donuts in Wallingford after this, so we headed north. They must’ve had a busy day, because they were pretty low on donuts when we got there, but luckily, you can’t go wrong with Mighty-O. We got some apple spice mini donuts, a chocolate glazed, french toast and lemon poppy seed. So good. My dad said if he lived here, he’d be there all the time.

After a drive out to Golden Gardens Park to watch the sailboats, we drove over to pick up Thomas, and stopped in at Chuck’s Hop Shop in Greenwood for happy hour with their incredible selection of beer. (No pictures, sorry!)

We tried to find a place in the International District for dinner, but my mom didn’t have the recommendations list on her, and we were too late, so we headed back to my mom’s new favorite place: Elysian. I had this FANTASTIC dish, TOFU SALAD $13 – Sweet chili sauce marinated tofu slices, baked on banana leaf and served over rice vermicelli, shredded Savoy cabbage and fresh grape tomatoes; with pickled daikon and carrot ribbons and Thai basil-lemongrass vinaigrette. Garnished with hoisin sauce, fried shallots, crushed peanuts and lime wedges. That’s 2 for 2 Elysian. AND they have some of the best tasting pumpkin beers out right now? Yeah, this might be one of my new faves too. Everyone loved their beer and food all over again.

Mom & Dad :)

For dinner Thursday, we went to a chinese restaurant in the International District recommended by a member of their hotel’s staff. It was Zagat rated and had a Seattle’s Best sticker on the door from a few years ago. Unfortunately it also had a bad smell in the foyer, and was a  HORRIBLE experience. They barely had any veggie choices at all, if you can believe it. (Even the tofu dishes weren’t vegetarian! WHAT?) We got 3 plates of nearly identical Budda’s Delight variants that were ugly as sin, and sadly, completely foul. Basically, we couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Then we got to chatting in the car about restaurant choices…

Ironically, my parents had been eating vegetarian since they watched Forks over Knives up until recently. (My mom’s not a tremendous meat eater and has been on and off vegetarian her whole adult life.) Somehow on Monday at Chupa, Thomas & I got the impression that my father didn’t want to go to any vegan places, so we’d been trying really hard to find other options than the ones we knew. Apparently they’d pretty much planned on eating vegan during their trip here with us! This made the rest of their stay a lot easier, and we got to laugh off the disgusting meal. After this there were no more dining mishaps, and we even went out for ice cream to celebrate to put that horrendous meal behind us!

Ice cream makes everything better.

I could’ve sworn I took a picture of my ice cream, but I guess I didn’t so the pic above is from the beginning of the summer, on a hot day at Blue Bird Creamery, which is where we went. That’s me holding a split scoop sugar cone of their two vegan flavors, Coconut Milk Chocolate Chip & Horchata. The horchata is to-die-for, and was a favorite at our table.

wpid-CAM00705.jpg

Friday night we went to one of faves, Georgetown Liquor Company. Their motto is: STRONG ENOUGH FOR A CARNIVORE, MADE FOR A HERBIVORE! It’s a vegetarian bar that can make almost everything vegan. Not only do they have killer food and craft beer, they also have art, pinball and old school video game setups. I got a few rounds of NES Tetris in after I finished up my cider and this FRAC $9.77 : Lentil-sage Field Roast, Apricot Chutney, (W/O Primrose brie), fresh arugula and roma tomatoes toasted on ciabatta.

By Saturday I was really craving pizza, so we headed to Pizza Pi, an all vegan pizzeria located in the vegan strip of the University District. We usually don’t even look at a menu, we often just order what they’ve got on special, but this day, we all took our time making our selections. Ours was divine; the Southwestern has chipotle ranch sauce, chicken, green peppers, grilled onions, and bacon. So, so good. My parents go the ever-so-green St. Patrick’s Revenge, which has spinach and artichoke sauce, green peppers, broccoli, spinach, fresh basil, and they added chicken to it.

wpid-CAM00707.jpg

We totally pigged out and ended up going back to the hotel to drink, hangout and watch bad tv & movies. We had a GREAT night, and Thomas and my dad made a run for some late night munchies including a Taco Bell fresco bean burrito for me. 😉

Sunday was their last day, and we started out with a flat tire that needed to be plugged. Luckily they got us in right away, and Thomas remembered that the Lake Union Veggie Grill was right around the corner, so we had a feast at this all vegan chain. I ordered the All Hail Kale salad (above) that is delicious on its own, and really needs no dressing. I’ll give you the quick run down below.

VG Rollers for the app. Two of them were picked up, and then replace for the picture taking! Hahah.

They really LOVED Veggie Grill too. They’re hoping that they get down to Florida one day, but I told them if they just move here, they can have it whenever they want!

We did a little bit of bowling at the Garage, quickly checked out an apartment (Thomas & I found a place, and are moving at the end of October!) and then headed to Capitol Cider for our last happy hour of the trip.

This was actually from Thomas' birthday dinner, but they're the exact same no matter what Chupa you get them at!

My dad wanted to make sure he got one more meal in at El Chupacabra before he left, so we hit the Alki Beach location where I got the veggie tacos with black refried beans instead of pintos (no cheese). He was crazy about their chips & salsa, and happy with their selection of sauces. He said they were some of the best tacos he ever ate, which is a huge compliment from my father!

It was SO WONDERFUL to have my parents here. I hadn’t seen them for 6 months! Which is the longest I had ever gone without seeing them. We’ll be hitting South Florida in December though, so we don’t plan on letting it go that long again.

I hope you all had a great MoFo! Thanks for reading, and welcome to all the new followers!!!

Vegan MoFo 2013:9 Wayward Vegan Cafe, Seattle & A Twin Peaks Day trip

Published September 10, 2013 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

wpid-PhotoGrid_1378779373859.jpg

So I’ve been WAY behind in telling you about my favorite places to eat thus far in Seattle! I’ve just been letting the pictures pile up in my phone. So thank you MoFo, for giving me the kick in the pants I needed. But before we get to that, I’m going to tell you more about our Sunday afternoon… Well, we drove out to Snoqualmie Falls.

What?! You never heard of Snoqualmie Falls? That’s probably because you know the town of Snoqualmie a whole lot better as the fictional town of Twin Peaks.

That’s Snoquamie Falls right there at the 1:42 mark of the intro!

wpid-CAM00639.jpg

Twin Peaks love has never died amongst the spooky, David Lynch loving set, but especially in Seattle. We’ve seen more than one framed portrait of Laura Palmer right over a bar, and there’s the 2nd Twin Peaks party in 2 months coming up around the corner.

wpid-CAM00640.jpg

Thomas also made a point to take us to the actual diner used for the Double R. (You can read about the history of the diner here.) Unfortunately, a fire in 2000 was cause for a gutting and a remodel, but that doesn’t keep them from keeping the tourism alive and wrapped in plastic.

Everything in Twedes was indeed wrapped in plastic, but I'm not sure that was intentional. ;)

So needless to say, the cherry pie wasn’t vegan. But Thomas is vegetarian (even though he’s about 95% vegan, in diet, clothing, etc.) so he went right ahead and ordered the requisite pie and black coffee. The coffee WAS good, though I just had a small sip, since I haven’t drank coffee in years! But all this diner ambiance was making me want some vegan diner food of my own. So we agreed to drive straight to Wayward right after.

Since our favorite vegan bar, Highline closed their all vegan kitchen recently, we’ve been driving up to the University District a lot more to get our greasy vegan fix. And although Wayward isn’t a bar, they did start doing beer, wine, and on tap mimosas (no cider yet) right before Highline closed, but we still have Vegetarian/Vegan bar Georgetown Liquor Company down in Georgetown.

And now for the food…

The best part about Wayward Vegan Cafe? We’ve never had anything bad there! The food is always delicious, and as you can see by the Bikini Bowl pictured above, they do even have some healthier options. They have a good range of gluten-free items that cover Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and the only thing they don’t serve all day is the Dinner items, which are just from 4-9pm.

Not only that but it’s on the same block as Vegan Haven (all vegan grocery store), Araya’s Place (Vegan Thai restaurant) and just on the next block  and directly across the street from Vegan Haven is Pizza Pi (Vegan Pizzeria).

Wayward is located at 5253 University Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105. Open daily 9 AM – 9PM. 206 – 524 – 0204.

Highline – Seattle, WA

Published January 27, 2013 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

wpid-CAM00125.jpg

I’ve been super beat lately adjusting to the new job wake up time. Getting up at the time I got used to going to bed for the last 3 months, has been a bit rough, so I apologize for the little hiatus of slacking here at the blog. Also, because Highline is one of our favorite places in Seattle so far, I wanted to make sure to give you a proper review, so I took my time writing it over the course of a few visits.

I say proper review, because I’m the type of person that reads a lot of reviews, and I found some of the reviews I read about Highline before going to be highly inaccurate. So I will start by setting the record straight!

Debunking the Highline myths created by happycow and yelp reviewers…

The first thing you need to know about Highline is that it is a BAR. A pub. A lounge. A venue. They also serve food, but that doesn’t automatically mean you can bring your children in here. It is NOT a family restaurant, that’s why it says NO MINORS on the front door. IT IS A BAR.

The second thing  you need to know is that Highine isn’t a dive bar contrary to what several reviewers seem to believe. Not to say that dive bars are bad in any way. I love dive bars, but bars with granite counter tops don’t qualify as dive bars in my book, maybe that’s just me.

The third thing I read and found untrue, was that it’s in a trashy neighborhood? Umm? It’s right on Broadway, in Capitol Hill. Do you think that’s a bad neighborhood, because I don’t. Yes, it’s directly upstairs from a store that sells lingerie and adult toys, but it’s actually a very nice store, with a thoughtful layout and a professional staff. 🙂

image

Things that are true about Highline?

They have delicious food, it’s all vegan, and most of it wouldn’t really be considered health food. Now, there are a few salads on the menu (which I have yet to try!), but what they do exquisitely well is bar food. For example, they have vegan fish and chips. Seriously. The above burrito is actually what brought us in for the 1st time. They had it as their daily special, and Thomas needed a burrito fix badly one afternoon, so we decided to go check it out.

image

I had the THE PELE wrap $8 / Maple teriyaki tempeh with pineapple, spinach, cabbage, red onions, miso-sriracha aioli, which as you can imagine was absolutely awesome.

wpid-CAM00123.jpg

We shared the pickle chips, which have become Thomas’ new favorite food. They come served with ranch dressing. They kick butt.

image

Here is the full bar as glimpsed over the shiny granite counter top. Highline doesn’t just pour icy cold beers, they also have a large list of house infused liquors and signature drinks. I’m a big fan of the ginger infused bourbon. In fact, that’s mostly what I drank all night on New Year’s when we came back for a special NYE edition CAKEAROKE (karaoke with vegan cake).  Here is my New Year’s cupcake being presented to me by Joe the bartender.

image

Granite aside, it’s a pretty punk rock place, which we love. A lot of the staff is in, or tours with bands, and you’ll find lots and lots of ink, piercings and dreads on both the help and the customers. They also HAD a bad bathroom situation going, (but they would give you a key to the nicer bathroom in the hallway adjacent to the bar, if you asked!) but that has recently been remedied!

And this is not just a place for vegans either, pretty much everyone cool that we meet seems to love Highline, and like the food. Here’s their appetizer list…

wpid-IMG_20130105_202215.jpg

I really need to try those sweet potato tater tots next! And here are their nachos…

wpid-IMG_20130105_210426.jpg

They’re supposed to come with a nooch sauce too, but didn’t the day I ordered these. Didn’t matter, they were still super good.

wpid-IMG_20130105_204355.jpg

Along with some pickle chips, we also split an order of SATAN FINGERS with buffalo sauce that were fantastic.

I highly recommend Highline if you’re in Seattle. We plan on taking all of our friends here when they visit. We have yet to be there for a band night, but they have all kinds of things go down here like all you can eat spaghetti and movie nights, trivia night, the aforementioned cakearokee, and an industrial night too.

Highline is located at 210 Broadway E, Seattle, Washington 98102. Open Mon – Fri: 3:00 pm – 2:00 am and they open extra early on the weekend for BRUNCH! Sat – Sun: 11:00 am – 2:00 am (206) 328-7837, highlinevolume@gmail.com, http://www.highlineseattle.com

Vida Vegan Tech Seminar – Seattle

Published December 3, 2012 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

I know I’m way overdue in telling you about the Vida Vegan Con Tech Seminar. Fortunately, I had already uploaded the pics of the seminar to WordPress after the fact. Otherwise they would have been lost in New Orleans with the rest of the pics that I hadn’t done that with, when my phone crashed to it’s untimely death on Bourbon Street!

I have much to tell you about our 8 day travel from South Florida to Seattle, but I’ll start chronologically with the two weeks I spent in Seattle. You’ll be surprised to know it actually isn’t a whole lot either, because I spent most of those 2 weeks sick as a dog. But on to the conference…

image

This was me sitting at the bus stop in West Seattle. I had done a trial of bussing into town a couple days before to make sure I had the hang of it in time for the conference. I nailed it. 🙂

image

The seminar was held downtown at the Seattle public library, and it’s a very cool looking building. The 4th floor is where all the meeting rooms are, and it looks like how I imagine the inside of womb. This is the view as you step off the elevator.

image

I found my tweeps right away including Molly, Brit, Helen, and Dawn, whom I had never met before in person. We chatted for a little while and then got serious with our notebooks as the first speaker took the mic. We had an interesting variety of topics that day, starting first with HTML, and writing code for websites. I’ll admit, it was a bit over my head. My skills in this department are limited to using templates, and copying and pasting code to customize when I’m feeling fancy.

Seminar topics included Nuts n Bolts of Webpage, Blog Design in an Ever-Changing Digital Landscape, Podcasting on a Budget, Shooting, Editing and Integrating Video, and Next Level Social Media.

image

Lunch was provided Veggie Grill, which is now in Seattle! These were the Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’ sandwiches ($8.95) which were absolutely awesome and made up of Fried Chickin’, lettuce, tomato, red onion, avocado, spicy vegan mayo!

image

Also provided was their All Hail Kale salad (Yay, kale!) ($8.45 in stores) consisting of Marinated kale and red cabbage, corn salsa, agave-roasted walnuts, and ginger-papaya vinaigrette. SUPER good.

image

Lunch would not have been complete without dessert, and little carrot cakes also came with the spread. I’m not a big sweets person, so I wasn’t crazy about the very sweet carrot cake, but they had also given us Mighty-O Donut holes that morning, so I might had already reached my sweets capacity for that day.

image

My first helping. Followed by another half a sandwich and another helping of kale. Mmmm!

image

They also had bags and bags of Pacific Northwest Kale Chips, which were incredible. Here are Brit & Molly showing off their bags.

image

They had two flavors. Both had a little spicy kick.

image

The cilantro, jalapeno were my favorite.

image

This was one of the slides from the introduction to Helen & Dawn’s presentation. And here’s one more of them prepping for the talk.

wpid-2012-11-03-14.52.14.jpg

It was a really nice experience overall. It was great to meet the Vida Vegan Con girls, and we got to take in plenty of good food and inspiring information. I was definitely able to start using some of the tips right away, and am planning to do more in the near future.

Posts should be coming back to a normal pace of frequency now that we’ve got the WIFI situation setup at home!

Thomas & Ty take Seattle

Published December 27, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So with all the holiday rush and traveling we’ve been doing I didn’t really get to tell you about our trip to Seattle. Instead of making separate posts, I’ll just include everything in this one, and try to keep it concise for the sake of brevity.

So we stayed at the Maxwell Hotel in lower Queen Anne. It was really, really close to the space needle and sci-fi museum, and also only one building away from Bamboo Garden, an all vegan (except the fortune cookies have eggs!) chinese restaurant. (Behind the blue building.)

image

image

image

The first place we went to eat was Bang, Bang Cafe. It’s a cute little breakfast and lunch place in Belltown that has vegan options & Mighty-O Donuts (all vegan), as well as incredibly tasty vegan mac n cheese that even omnis rave about on yelp. I had a VBLT, which was terrific, and Thomas & I split a scoop of the mac n cheese and a cinnamon & sugar doughnut that we got for half price. (day old!) Since the doughnut was so good & cheap, we grabbed two more to eat with our morning beverages in the hotel. Mmm!

image

image

image

image

Me: “look! real christmas trees! with pine cones! 🙂

image

Me: “i want a purple volvo!”

image

Then we headed down to the Pike Place Market and did some window shopping. I also picked up a wreath of hot peppers (not pictured) for my dad from the market, from Alvarez farms.

image

image

Then we met up with Anthony, Karen and Edgar, and headed over to Plum Bistro for happy hour. Unfortunately, Thomas & I were still full from lunch since it was early, but we had some tasty beers. Afterwards we hit up the Elliot Bay Book company and a record shop, and managed to work up an appetite just in time to miss the happy hour pricing for our dinner! I couldn’t take any pictures because my phone was dying, but we took some bad ones in a hurry with Thomas’ phone. We split a salad and ordered burgers since we were trying to be somewhat frugal. It was good, and it was expensive.

image

image

Then Thomas & I walked the entire distance of Capitol Hill, through downtown, and back up towards Queen Anne. We both took night time shots of the space needle. This is mine. Thomas’ was way better.

image

I thought it was pretty cool that a lot of places there had not only recycling next the to garbage cans, but also composting! This was at one of the MANY Starbuck’s.

image

Saturday we got dressed up and decided to try to get into Seattle’s member’s only goth club. However after waiting for the bus twice, and seeing the time, we decided it’d just be easier to hang out at a bar close by. By chance we found a bar with the best array of kareoke music that suited our taste. Consequently I sang 3 songs. That’s a record for me. And we drank a lot of Blue Moon.

image

Unfortunately the combination of eating dinner WAY early and drinking beer way late did not agree that well with my stomach. So Sunday brunch was in bed with takeout from said Bamboo Garden that was right by our hotel. Turns out it was really tasty, and the mongolian beef was incredible!

image

image

Later we met up with my dear friend Kat, whom I hadn’t seen for about 15 years. We met up with her at Teapot Vegetarian House Restaurant (all vegan). Since I ate lunch so late, I just had some ginger tea, and tried Kat & Thomas’ dishes, which were pretty yummy. (Below.)

image

image

image

I wanted to check out Remedy Teas (downstairs) and found that they had vegan baked goods. I decided to go with some simple and delicious, thick sliced mulit-grain toast and vegan butter. (PS- They have 150 teas!) We also got a couple of goodies to go, which proved to be yummy.

image

After this we walked through Capitol Hill again, and stopped by the Elysian Brewing Company and had a couple of beers. Then we took our final stroll through the downtown area before heading back to our hotel to sleep before we headed out in the morning.
