MELT Bar & Grill Visit

Last weekend hubby and I took a drive over to Mentor, OH, and then on to Woodmere, OH, to visit Wholefoods Market...more on that trip to the store another time.  Today I'm talking about the experience I had at MELT Bar & Grill!

I'll work a little backwards here and start with the food then move to the atmosphere!

First up...my main meal.  YES...they have a slew of VEGAN options!  Woot!  I opted for the half sandwich which was a good thing because I couldn't have eaten any more!  What you see here is called the PARMAGEDDON.  This 'bad boy' had Potato & onion pierogis, fresh Napa vodka kraut, sautéed onions, vegan cheddar on their bread!


I started things off with these 'puppies'.

These are Buffalo Tofu Wings with Vegan Ranch.  Believe it or not...my far-from-veg-husband actually tried them, too, and he REALLY liked them!

These were VERY memorable for both of us - especially because hubby already said he would have them again the next time we went back.

The vegetarian and vegan options were clearly marked on the menus.  The menu's were on the back of old record sleeves.

This place was AWESOME and eclectic and eccentric and just about anything else you can think of.  A wonderfully FUN place with lots of interesting food options.

Every couple of weeks they come up with some off-the-wall special feature such as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cowabunga Melt or the Glazed and Very Confused Donut Bacon Melt...not that either of those are vegan but you get the idea...

Either way...it gives me great ideas to try to veganize, eh!?

What do you think!?  Here's their Instagram, too!

    1. I never would have thought about it either! I am going to keep an eye on their features and see if I can do vegan versions or at least spark my own combo from their idea!

  7. This place looks insane! Wow. I'm not sure when I'll next find myself in Ohio, but I'll keep this in mind.
    Your sandwich sounds good, very unique sounding. And those "puppies" look so good! I love that they have the menu on the back of record sleeves. I also love a good non-veg restaurant that has really good vegan options.
