That or the V-Spot vegan food truck on Water Street. That was pretty high up on my list too. But Brooklyn won and I figured I'd hit MooShoes on the way to the Hilton on 6th and 53rd.
The place reminded me of a punk bar I used to go to in college. Stickers all over the place, support anarchy, you definitely don't need to bring any reading material into the head as it's plastered with every point of view sticker and every color of magic marker statement.
I went to the counter and basically said I wanted the worst thing on the menu burger-wise ... health-wise, not taste-wise!)
I was sort of itching for onion rings but then saw the Drumsticks section. OMG.
I get the Vegan Heart Attack-soy burger w/Soy Bacon, soy cheese (toffutti, I asked and Daiya was an option), Lettuce, Pickle, Tomato, Red Onion and Vegan Mayo 7.25. I of course added some Chili and ordered a Buffalo style, (the most popular), and Southern Fried Drumstick.
|They don't serve beer but I bought this at the bodega 2 blocks away. Nice that they had Organic beer. Ah, gentrification. But seriously, isn't this a find lunch for a vegan's day off?|
|Slathered in Buffalo Hot Sauce, not too hot, not too mild but a nice heat on the tongue. The blue cheese dressing was ok but not the best imitation I ever had. Cooled off the drumstick though!|
|That Southern Fried Drumstick ... I could have just eaten a dozen of them for lunch with the beer. Probably should have also started with that one because after the Buffalo sauce coated my tongue it's flavor was masked a bit. But look at that burger!|
|Battered and fried seitan on a stick. Does it get any better than that?|
I really could subsist on those drumsticks though! If I lived in the neighborhood this place would be pretty high up on my radar and a regular stop for a standard lunch or dinner.
