A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Winter Menu at Queen City Grounds

(4)
February 22, 2020

Queen City Grounds – 644 North Church Street Queen City Grounds is the coolest place I’ve found (yet) in Uptown Charlotte. I know, that sounds like damning with faint praise. Because Uptown Charlotte is not known for being “cool.” Its “coolness” is largely nonexistent. Manufactured and fabricated by middle aged white men in business suits…. Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Fajitas at Duckworth’s

My office often goes to Duckworth’s for big group gatherings. Several reasons: It’s within walking distance of our office. It’s one of the few places on “that side” of Uptown that can accommodate larger groups – farewell parties, team luncheons. There are several large tables and roomy booths, plus two very long tables in the… Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Vada Pav at Marathi Masala

Red food trucks in Uptown Charlotte always fill me with joy! Because I know that means Zizi’s Awesome Vegan To Go – awesome and all vegan.

Imagine Vegan Cafe – Memphis, TN

Imagine Vegan Cafe in Memphis, TN. The place to go when you’re craving frozen vegan food from the grocery store and abominable service. OK, to be fair I don’t know what the vegan scene is in Memphis. Maybe Gardein, Tofurky, Yves etc. are not as readily available in Memphis as they are in Charlotte. Maybe… Read More ›

Soul Good Vegan Cafe/Souly Vegan Cafe

We were on the road again, headed back to Charlotte after attending my friend KD’s vegan Hallowedding in Garner. The Red Roof Inn Plus (where we typically stay because of our furbabies) surprisingly provides a decent enough breakfast for vegans. There’s coffee, orange juice, apple juice, toast, packets of jams and jellies, plain instant grits,… Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures In Uptown Charlotte – A Tale of Two Halal Carts

Halal Food Cart – 101 North Tryon Halal Gyro Man – 130 North Tryon It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of “what the f*ck?“; it was the… Read More ›

Burger 21 Restaurant Review (The Plant Based/Vegan Options)

Yesterday, my work team decided to treat our boss to lunch for her birthday. The chosen location was Burger 21, a fast casual a.k.a. “counter service” restaurant in Ballantyne. As you’d expect from the name, the joint specializes in burgers. Mostly beef burgers, but also chicken burgers, turkey burgers, tuna burgers, and shrimp burgers. They… Read More ›

Let It Bleed (Or Not) … Impossible Burger & Duckworth’s Review, Part Deux

In a previous post, I wrote a detailed review of the Impossible Burger and one of the few places to find it in Charlotte, NC – Duckworth’s. My review of the Impossible Burger was mostly positive.

You Gotta Have Buns, Hon … Impossible Burger Review At Duckworth’s Park Road

For the past six months or so, seems like all the vegan buzz has been about The Impossible Burger. It’s the “burger that bleeds!” It’s the burger that has the appearance, texture, and taste of “realĀ beef“! It’s better than the Beyond Burger! Or – no, it’s not??? It’s dietarily vegan – unless, of course, it’s… Read More ›
