Beets don't kale my vibe - Edit

Delicious, Organic, vegan, mostly locally sourced, affordable. Pleasantly surprising, Excellent vegan find at Brooklyn's weekly Smorgasburg event at Prospect Park. So much to choose from. Decided on a salad & it did not disappoint. Topping a bed of fresh romaine & green leaf lettuces was a homemade beet Patty, heirloom tomatoes, hickory smoke eggplant bacon, vegan cheddar, pickles drizzled with homemade ranch. Beet Patty was just right moist, held together well. The eggplant bacon was well seasoned, thickly sliced and just crisp enough to provide a good texture contrast to the patty. Companion had the pulled BBQ jackfruit sandwich, & enjoyed the texture and flavor, this being their first time trying jackfruit.
Offers catering, and serves at popups throughout Brooklyn. Will seek them out on my next visit to the area; definitely worth a return trip.
Now open inside Brooklyn's Whole Foods Market! So glad for brick/mortar location. Noshed on the Oyster Mushroom Po'boy sandwich, with a side of truffle fries. Oyster Mushrooms​ lightly battered, deep fried, deliciously crispy, light, not at all greasy; hand cut fries sprinkled with truffle salt nice accompaniment. Very filing.

Pros: 100% vegan, Delicious food, Good variety, filling, affordable

Cons: none

Good burgers - Edit

They have 3 different burgers that are served either on a bun ($12) or w/ salad ($10). I tried two different ones and they were both very good. Service could be more friendly/helpful

Pros: good food, cheap by nyc standards

Cons: okay service, but not top notch

Great Find At Smorgasburg - Edit

This spot is a welcome vegan presence in the carnist orgy of Williamsburg eats. I loved the beet sliders, and I'm looking forward to trying more. They do catering, too!

Pros: Delicious, Healthy, Fun

Cons: Seasonal, Few GF Options
