Agra Culture Kitchen & Press

I've made two trips to Agra Culture Kitchen & Press, which opened recently in the 50th & France area. With an Agra Plate, you can choose a protein, sauces and sides. On my first visit I went with the vegan chick'n with Sriracha and seasonal hash. On the second visit I chose the seared tofu with spicy miso and brown "unfried" rice. Both were excellent! The in-store menu is very clear about which items are vegan. And the refillable natural sodas are a bonus. Also open in Uptown. I'll be a frequent customer.

Pizza Luce Richfield

Had a great Father's Day brunch at Pizza Luce in Richfield, trying the veganized Huevos Luceros, which includes corn tortillas with spinach, quinoa, black beans, avocado, and tofu. It's excellent!

The Bulldog Northeast

I finally made it to The Bulldog NE. Upon arrival, we were asked whether we'd like to see the vegetarian menu. Yeah, we would like to see that particular menu! There are four vegan burgers on the menu, among other veg items, and I opted for the one called the Original. It includes "bacon" mayo, fried mushrooms, tomato, onions, and lettuce on grilled focaccia. After one visit, I'd definitely rank this place among the top vegan bar food joints in Minneapolis.

Mesa Pizza Uptown

After enjoying a veggie-filled vegan slice at Mesa Pizza's Uptown location, I went home to discover that my family had picked up a donut for me at Glam Doll. Yeah!

Kitty Corner Cafe

The vegan panini at the Kitty Corner Cafe in Stadium Village.  Yum. As noted on their web site, it includes:  roasted red pepper hummus, peppered deli-sliced Tofurky, vegan mozzarella cheese, tomato and basil.

Punk Rawk Labs

We've been enjoying the locally made, cashew-based vegan cheese made by Punk Rawk Labs. According to their web page, they'll open a retail store some time this year. I've purchased multiple varieties at both the Linden Hills Co-op and the Seward Co-op. The Nacho flavor is great. I picked up the Smoked flavor today but haven't tried it yet.
