Veggie Grill. Veggie Grill. Wherefore art thou, Veggie Grill. Unfortunately, only on the west coast at this time. This was my first time at their La Jolla/ San Diego restaurant, which I visited 4 times over 4 days. Luckily for me, this Veggie Grill was literally across the street from my hotel.
Their buffalo sauce is amazing and the wings (reminiscent of boneless buffalo strips) are perfectly crunchy-coated. These are easily in my top 3 of best vegan buffalo wings in the USA.
CRISPY CHICKIN’ PLATE:
1 of my fav dishes here. A crispy "chicken" patty served with gravy, cauli-mashed potatoes, and their kale (not bitter tasting) salad. The dressing for the kale salad is delicious! I could eat the mashed cauliflower (tastes just like mashed potatoes) and the kale salad every day. SO good.
These are ok. The cauliflower is fried and served with an Asian-inspired sweet orange sauce. Personally, I prefer a buffalo-style flavor. However, my family loved this appetizer.
Basically, they take a couple of their buffalo wings and stuff them in a tortilla along with cool lettuce and ranch. It is the perfect size for a snack or small lunch on the go. And it's really not that mini; it's a decent size. Delicious!
Oh, those secret spices are killer (that means really really good)! This wrap was so good that it had me licking the wrapper-paper whilst I drove down the highway.
I really love these minis because I can get one of each flavor without feeling guilty or over-eating.
SANTE FE CRISPY CHICKIN’:
It's the spicy chipotle mayo which makes this sandwich so awesomely tasty. I always get extra. Yum! It comes with a side and I chose their Yukon Gold Fries. Golden, fresh, crisp, and seasoned to perfection.
Unless you have a nut allergy, you MUST try this carrot cake. A-list cake with the most deliciously creamy vegan cream cheese icing. I ordered an entire cake (to go) for only $20.
VG CHEESEBURGER (no cheese for me):
It's just ok. There was another burger option at their Hollywood location (had a thousand island dressing) which I fancied much better. I wouldn't get this particular burger again.
These were just ok as well. They were missing something… Maybe more taco protein?
Double-check your order. They messed up on a couple of my orders.
Located in the UTC shopping mall, near Macy's.
