That, my friends, is the combining of two words: crunk and update. In other words, a crunk update...take that as you will.
My mother and I had an excursion to Chicago the other weekend and it was amazing. We ate at all sorts of places and would like to shout out to West Town Bakery and Diner (vegan donuts, cakeballs and other baked goodies), Karyn's Cooked (amazing food), and of course, The Chicago Diner (amazing food and shakes...ugh, those shakes)
Oh man-Pizza's Luce in St Paul's Vegan Slice Thursday IS A THING, PEOPLE. GET YOUR BUTTS OVER THERE AND GIVE THEM THE BIZNASS THEY DESERVE.
So I've been eating...things. Specifically, things like this!! Waha!:
That right there is the "Crispy Fried Tofu" dish a la The Red Stag Supperclub in NE Mpls. It is so tasty-the tofu was perfectly fried in whatever that thing is around it. I don't even know. And it was seasoned beautifully! Not too salty and just the right amount of flavor. It left me wanting more, but that's probably because I came super fucking hungry (my bad). The vegetable medley on the side also was delicious and I don't even freaking like radishes BUT SOMEHOW, this place made me like radishes.
All in all, this is a fancy dinner place (*cough*higher-priced*cough*) which is totally cool if that's what you're looking for. The red house wine I had went perfectly with this dish-I walked out very satisfied, but proceeded to follow this up with a Tofutti Cutie (read: again, I was starving).
Get there, folks! And just ask what on the menu can be made vegan-the staff is tres helpful.
