Vegan guide to SF Bay Area Thanksgiving!   »

Hey friends! Thanksgiving, aka the most glorious time of the year, food-wise, is quickly descending upon us! I can’t wait to see all of your festive food pics this year! In a quandary about what to eat? I got you covered! Of course if I missed anything, be sure to mention it in the comments! After all, that’s how our relationship works, for better or for worse.

Source restaurant will be offering their annual Gobble Platter, complete with “gobble”, gravy, creamed spinach, candied yams, homemade cranberry sauce, and a side salad. This meal is pretty epic, and I’m seriously looking forward to it! I’ll be eating it as my employee lunch (yippee!) before scooting off to the Peninsula to eat with my own family. Of course Source will be offering an array of desserts, including spice cake snowballs with orange frosting and a living pumpkin cheesecake (from me to you!), though not included in the $20.95 platter price. Mention Vegansaurus for 10% off your Gobble Platter, which will be available all day Thursday and Friday. Call 415-864-9000 for more information, or to make take-out/reservation arrangements. 

Souley Vegan is offering a SCRUMPTIOUS looking Thanksgiving day brunch buffet, 11am to 5pm. There are so many items to choose from, including a tofu loaf with rosemary gravy, blueberry waffles, herb mashed potatoes, southern fried tofu, pumpkin cheesecake with warm caramel sauce and your choice of two mimosas or draft beers. The price of this buffet is still up in the air, but I was told it will be in the ballpark of $20 - $25. Call 510-922-1615 for more details

The Plant Cafe is offering a prix fixe three-course meal, which includes a soup course, salad course, and featuring an entree of a red-wine braised portobello mushroom and lentil stew, with a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. I believe the entire meal is gluten-free as well as vegan. The meal is by reservation only, from 2pm - 8pm. It’s $50 for adults and $25 for children under the age of 12. Wine flights are available for $25. Call 415-984-1973 for more details, or to make reservations! 

Hella Vegan Eats is offering a “Festive Feast,” which is available for pick-up or delivery on Wednesday, November 27th. Time is running out, as they ask you please place your order by Thursday, November 21st! I love Hella Vegan Eats so very much; I can only imagine how spectacular their Thanksgiving feast must be! Reserve your order by calling 510-282-8233. (Please note side-dishes and desserts are only available in addition to the Festive Feast)

New-to-the scene cuties, Ashley and Kyle Knies, of From the Garden, are offering a Thanksgiving meal box, which they will deliver to you on Wednesday, November 27th (minimum order, two boxes). The boxes of food are $30 each and includes such delectable items as  an Herbed-Lentil loaf, apple-cranberry stuffing, green bean casserole with crispy onions, and garlic mashed potatoes! Dessert is also available for an additional fee. To reserve a box, or ask any questions (single savory items, and couple selections of pies are available) email chefkyleknies@gmail.com! 

Millennium is almost surely doing something because they always do so if you want to fancy it up, holler at them pretty soon (415-345-3900 x10) because I know they sell out and that would suck if your fancy thing was a bust because you slept on it. (And Uh, if you can, let us know in the comments what the deal is??)

If you want to bring home the Thanksgiving fun, you can get Hodo Soy Beanery yuba roast (supposedly very delicious!) from goodeggs.comOf course, Whole Foods always offers a vegan dinner available for pick-up at their many locations, while “faux turkeys” or holiday roasts are now sold at Rainbow, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. For your dessert needs, I’m always pretty stoked with the ready-made pies at Rainbow. There’s also Mission Pie, Timeless Coffee and of course pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls at Cinnaholic! Make sure you make your orders asap, as many bakeries have strict deadlines and cut-off dates!

YOU GUYS. I had lunch at The Plant Cafe at the Embarcadero today and per usual, it was the mickey fickey bomb. But that’s not the weird part. THE WEIRD PART IS THIS: I get home and look what Fancy Nancy sent me! A motherflipping recipe for THE PLANT BURGER.
SAY WHAT!?!??!??!?!!?
If you’ve never experienced the magic of The Plant Burger, you are a sad soul. Make this tonight because I will also be making it and we can be internet besties OMG YES. Also, seriously, this is the best thing in the universe and even my meat-eating dad who would kill a piglet with his bare teeth just to watch him die (hi dad!) loves this thing. For serious DO IT.

The Plant Cafe has happy hour at their new location in Pier 3 from 4 to 7 p.m. (don’t quote me on these hours because i have a hella bad memory…just use them as a loose guideline. A jumping-off point, if you will) during which time you can procure three slider (!!!) versions of their (FAMOUS AND DELICIOUS AND FILLED WITH BEETS AND LENTILS AND MUSHROOMS AND CASHEWS AND BULGUR WHEAT AND IT SOUNDS ALL HEALTHY AND UNAPPETIZING BUT YOU’RE WRONG IT IS AMAZING) Plant Burger to enjoy for $10. Get this along with some local microbrew and vegan patatas bravas and your shit is MADE, you fancy bitch. Now GO, it’s almost 4 and (I think it might be) that’s when it starts!
Also, make sure to ask that the burgers be on vegan buns! Good lord, a vegan’s work is never done.

From our lady about town, meganallison:
I am eating a delicious cupcake with peanut butter frosting! The new Plant Cafe is going to be a valuable addition to my downtown life!
The new Plant Cafe is located at Pier 3 in The Embarcadero. GOD, Plant Cafe, can’t you open in a neighborhood that isn’t the worst? The Marina and now the FiDi? This shit is evil.
