I must admit that I was a little disappointed to find that the veggie option was a portabella burger rather than an actual veggie burger patty. If you read my previous post, ‘Portabella or Portobello?‘, then you know my feelings towards the ubiquitous mushroom burger. According to their menu, the Portabella Burger is a tender marinated portabella mushroom cap, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, and mixed greens on a multigrain ciabatta bread. All 4 of their “House Eats” are $7 and served with shoe string fries. For $1 extra, you can sub the fries for fresh asparagus or sweet potato fries.
If you’re not into the “House Eats,” you can create your own fix. For $7, you choose the protein, bread, cheese, sauce (all made from scratch), and toppings. I decided to trust the House, and ordered the portabella burger the way it comes, since it sounded so delicious. My disappointment vanished after biting into an explosion of flavors and textures. The mushroom was perfectly cooked and marinated, and bits of chewy sun-dried tomatoes were complimented by perfectly ripe avocado. There wasn’t any cheese in it and I was surprisingly okay with that. The only drawback was that there were a few bites that tasted oversalted, but I’m guessing it was due to the sun-dried tomatoes. I don’t really like ciabatta bread, but this one was soft and I loved the seeds on top. I tried both varieties of fries and both were good, but also a little salty.
They also sell Jones Sodas and sweets, such as Andes Mint brownies and Kit Kat brownies.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a vegan option.
