Every Friday, I’ll give a shout-out to a local Minneapolis (or St. Paul, if I happen to make it over there!) establishment that I found to be extra veggie-friendly. If you’d like to highlight something from your town, let me know in the comments and I’ll do what I can to include it!
This week I have two! Both are in the my lovely neighborhood of Northeast Minneapolis.
Mac’s Industrial Bar
First, a shout out to Mac’s Industrial Bar. Curt and I went there for there for trivia (Thursdays from 8-11), and needed some nourishment. They had FANTASTIC black bean nachos (with homemade pico de gallo) available at the bar. Upon investigating their menu, I learned they have a TON of veggie items, including black bean eggrolls, the option to sub a veggie patty for any of their 15 burgers, and a portabella mushroom sandwich. This place is awesome.
My second shout-out is to the brand-new Hazel’s Northeast. I’ve been here just twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch, but was equally pleased both times! Check out Ben’s Black Bean Cakes for breakfast – yum! The main reason for this shout-out is for how awesome they were with my veggie request a few days ago. After perusing their lunch menu, I thought I’d ask about a veggie burger. My smiling server said that they’d just had a veggie burger special the day before, and that she’d see if there were any left in the kitchen. There was!!! I enjoyed a delicious Greek-style veggie burger with homemade mashed potatoes. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of veggie items on their menu! On their Facebook page, they mentioned they are tweaking the menu soon, and open to veggie ideas. Fantastic!
If you’re out at a place and wondering about veggie options beyond salad, pasta, or the oft-overdone veggie wrap, it never hurts to ask! You just mind find some treasure.
Have a great weekend, kids!
