Something I wasn't able to blog about last week due to catching up on other posts was our recent visit to JuiCy Burger Bar in Hamburg, NY. For those of you who aren't familiar with Hamburg, NY, it's just outside of Buffalo.
I was thrilled to find out they had clearly marked vegan options on their menu! I opted for the ALL UP IN MY BEAN-US Burger. You could get a vegetarian or vegan option. The vegan option was a dollar less than the vegetarian option. It was made out of black beans, carrots, quinoa, and mushrooms with greens and the carrot vinaigrette is what you see on the bottom and on top is the pickled red onion.
I was very pleased with my choice but just have to mention the other vegan options I noticed on the menu, too! There was a Falafel Burger that could be made vegetarian or vegan and again the vegan option was a dollar less. It was made out of tomato, cucumber, onion lettuce, tzatiki. They also had vegan poutine that featured a Smoked Onion Gravy and grilled tofu. If we visit there again I would like to try that. They also offered a Field Greens Salad.
I enjoyed the novelty of the mini fryer baskets to hold the fries when they came out to the table. Another thing I have to tell you is I could have eaten a whole jar of those pickled onions! I think I need to make some of them soon! I was so intrigued by the carrot vinaigrette I wish they would have given me more! I love different and creative vinegars!
I have noticed that Western New York is getting more and more vegan options in non-vegan restaurants! I can't wait to see what else we come across in 2019!
