(1)
January 7, 2020

Fuel Pizza – 214 N. Tryon Street (Hearst Tower) Soho Bistro – 214 N. Tryon Street (Hearst Tower) It was lunchtime and I was again pounding the streets of Uptown Charlotte. From somewhere behind me, I heard the faint cry of a coworker. “Catherine! Wait up! Wait up!” Usually, when a coworker does that, I… Read More ›

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 ›

It’s A Nice Day For A White Wedding – And Some Hash Browns At Waffle House

It was a beautiful October day. The sun was shining, temperatures were finally dropping, and finally – FINALLY – the sky was turning that gorgeous Carolina blue. It was as nice day for a White Wedding, and we were on our way! (CALM DOWN, this wasn’t MY wedding we were heading to! It was the… Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures In Uptown Charlotte – Week 2 (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. (Yes, I am aware an ingredient in the burger was tested on animals, but most new ingredients are. I… Read More ›

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 “real¬†beef“! It’s better than the Beyond Burger! Or – no, it’s not??? It’s dietarily vegan – unless, of course, it’s… Read More ›

But as Zariyah says, “Vegganers Luck is… Read More ›

Restaurant Review: ABC Commissary (Walt Disney World – Hollywood Studios)

  On the Saturday of our visit to Walt Disney World, we spent a very enjoyable morning at Hollywood Studios, riding and re-riding The Tower of Terror and the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster. Eventually, we had to eat lunch. The ABC Commissary¬† was another place we stumbled upon, since we didn’t have reservations and didn’t… Read More ›

Restaurant Review: Nine Dragons (Walt Disney World – Epcot)

Most of our Disney trip, Jules and I were winging it as far as restaurants went. (In other words, we hadn’t made restaurant reservations in advance and alerted the management I was a pain-in-the-*ss vegan who would require a special meal and possibly a visit to my table by the chef.) Anyhoo, we were in… Read More ›

Restaurant Review: Be Our Guest (Walt Disney World)

Disney is a bit overly fond of using the word “magical.” But in the case of Be Our Guest, the word magical truly applies. Be Our Guest is one of Walt Disney World’s most popular restaurants (second only to breakfast at Cinderella’s Castle). The wait list is legendary – you need to book your reservation… Read More ›
