Respond to Review of Whole Foods Market
Review: Full disclosure: I work at this location, but I had to share some of the great vegan options that are available. The salad bar/ hot bar always has lots of vegan options, in addition to the huge selection of fruits/veggies and everything is clearly labeled. My favorites are the chicken fried tofu, the spicy noodle salad, and the mock chicken salad. There is almost always a vegan pizza slice option, though sometimes they put SO many veggies on it everything slides off when you pick it up. They do a pizza deal day on Wednesday and a large vegan pizza is about 12 dollars. There is usually one or two vegan soup options out, the BEST being the coconut chipotle black bean soup. There is also the vegan throwdown sandwich on the menu that includes coleslaw and vegan bbq on a delicious bun. It is SO DELICIOUS. And don't get me started on the mock crab cakes. They are a perfect on top of a big salad. I try to pack my lunch, but when I forget, or I just want to treat myself, I always have a hard time deciding what to get! At breakfast time get the vegan triple berry muffin. They are made in house and so good! This Whole Foods is a great place if you need to run in a grab a fast bite. Updated from previous review on Wednesday September 11, 2013 They recently changed the vegan sandwich option to one with maple seitein and fresh veggies and I like it even better than the thrown down. I just wish they would give you a better apple with the sandwich. There is also a small restaurant in the back of the store past the produce where you can sit and order food that is cooked right in front of you. They vegan burger is amazing (don't know what the vegan cheese sauce is they use but it is like queso and lovely). The store recently updated the menu and it has more vegan options now. Including seitan tacos that I haven't tried yet, and the Engine Two bowl. That is a mix of sweet potato and mango and quinoa and avocado and balsamic and some other yummy things. I love it.
