San Francisco, you lucky city, you. This weekend you get to celebrate a Hella Vegan Eats Espectacular! First on Saturday, do brunch right with a glorious menu that includes chicken and waffles, chilaquiles rancheros, and Velvet Elvis french toast. Then on Sunday, make your dinner Cinco de Mayo-style with May Day fries and (my favorite!) fishy tacos. You can’t go wrong! Well, you could go wrong if you missed one or both of these pop-up events, so don’t do that.
The Hella Vegan Eats pop-up brunch runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 4; dinner happens Sunday, May 5, from 5:30 to 11 p.m. Both are at Dear Mom, at 2700 16th Street on the corner of Folsom in the Mission. Viva Hella Vegan Eats!
Vegan pop-up, Wildflower, in San Francisco this weekend! »
Any plans for Cinco de Mayo? I plan on sunning (in my dreams there is sun in SF on my afternoons off) on my deck, with SkinnyGirl Margaritas* and Sarah, while dancing to pop tunes. I know you can’t beat this arrangement, so don’t even try. Check out Wildflower instead!
Wildflower is a super-fancy pop-up from New York that’s rolling through San Francisco this weekend!
The menu looks pretty fucking legit, so I think Sarah and I will have to hop, skip, and jump on over to one of their locations, on Friday or Saturday night. BEER-BATTERED TEMPEH TACOS! It’s as if Wildflower knows my innermost desires (beer and tacos)!
If you are feeling extra super elegant, Wildflower is hosting a four-course sit-down dinner at a location that has yet to be announced, and to which you must RSVP to attend! Check out all the information here.
*Dammit, after reading this article, my hopes of margarita convenience are shattered. Can you send me your favorite, homemade margarita recipe, preferably containing agave nectar, please? Thanks ever so much! All natural, homemade margaritas forever!
Another word on Mexican food since I’m an expert. I pretty much will do anything for a taquito. You know how some people still have nightmares about the things they’ve done for a Klondike Bar? I’m like that, but with delicious taquitos!
Do you all remember those big plastic bags of taquitos they (used to?) sell at Costco? They were roughly the size of a 60-gallon Hefty and filled with delicious frozen taquitos? I basically lived off those and microwaved Steak-ums throughout middle school. I would love to meet other people who survived the same culinary upbringing and talk about how we still have the use of our eyes and didn’t die of scurvy and shit.
Anyway, these taquitos are from VegWeb, although I prefer this recipe. There’s also a recipe for potato Soyrizo taquitos that looks to be the bomb. Check out these jackfruit carnitas taquitos! If you’re too lazy to make them, three things. 1) Be my friend, 2) ALWAYS REMEMBER TAQUITO TUESDAY, and 3) you can buy those Starlite ones at Whole Foods and Rainbow Grocery and they taste JUST like the garbage-bag taquitos from Costco. Praise be!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Make me these fajitas for me immediately. That’s how we celebrate Cinco de Mayo around my apartment: you make me fajitas and I eat them. That’s about it. We’re old.
HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO Y’ALL!
Happy Cinco de Mayo, AMIGOS (see what I did there)! Now go eat some of this vegan taco pizza and get ass drunk and puke in the street because that’s what Cinco de Mayo is about, right? I mean, it’s like St. Patty’s Day, take 2 with all the same cultural appropriation, cheap beer, and Stupid American Antics. That said, I’m into it! Pass the tecate!
