As Neal prepares for the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, I am reminded of the last time we were there which was after Vida Vegan Con. We could only hang around for one meal because our final destination was Whidbey Island and we had a ferry to catch.
So of course we had to make our Seattle meal epic, which is why we chose Wayward Vegan Cafe. This place has a menu that is FIVE full pages of diner comfort food. They have everything from Belgian waffles to Country Fried Steak….talk about tough decisions.
At one point, I had so much trouble deciding that I was going to employ the “waving finger and random stop” method to help me. This is where I wave my finger randomly all around a menu and then have Neal randomly say “stop”. Wherever my finger lands when he says “stop” is what I order. This method is also good for choosing vacations, movies, what to wear, etc.
Given the sheer quantity of menu items I wanted to try, I’m impressed that I didn’t have to resort to this primitive decision making app. I chose the Crunch Wrap Supreme Master–Ground “beef”, refried beans, diced tomatoes, diced red onions, shredded cheddar cheese, and crispy lettuce on a crunchy tostada round and wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.
It was served with cilantro sour cream, salsa fresco and my choice of a potato salad side.
Neal got Suns Over Seattle–Grilled ham slices, American style cheese, and their signature tofu scramble sandwiched between golden buttery sourdough slices and served with hasbrowns.
So. Good. All of it. This is the kind of place where you discreetly leave with one button undone (I hope I’m not the only person who does this).
Neal is going to be pretty busy working the festival this weekend. But hopefully he will get a chance to drop by Wayward Vegan Cafe or perhaps some other vegan eats. If you’re gonna be at the Bumbershoot festival, he’d love for you to drop by and visit him (Epic Problems) at Flatstock in the Armory.
