And to top it off, they’re being dicks about it. Dude, nobody ever accused you of being a vegan restaurant so fucking relax. We’re just bummed you’re taking away the one place we could get fried seitan in this city. To tell us to suck it up and head to Gracias Madre is a bunch of bullshit; the menus aren’t comparable at all! I hope your shit burns to the ground. I SAID IT, OH GOD DAMN. And before everyone has a fucking conniption fit, I’m just ONE vegan and this is ONE opinion. I know lots of vegans who might disagree with me and will still go there, but the reason I went was for fried seitan and french fries, vegan Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and yam tacos, so yeah no, your papaya salad isn’t going to cut it.
Also, talking about all the “vegans grumbling” when there are plenty of non-vegans grumbling on other blogs and plenty of vegans who are OK with the change: way to be jerks about one of your core customer bases. Hardly anyone is stoked about your new menu, but if you want to become less sustainable and have a less inviting menu FOR ALL CUSTOMERS, that’s your business and your lack of business sense. Good day, sir!
My theories: Timothy, the owner, was spurned by a vegetarian or vegan girl and had a nervous breakdown about veg options. He was further negatively influenced by the chef from The Corner who is now the new head chef at Weird Fish. The Counter always weirded me out because Timothy co-owned that place and there was NOTHING veg on the menu, but I was always like, “Whatever! We have Weird Fish!” ANYWAY, my guess is that the chef from The Corner is just kinda bad at his job and can’t do creative vegan fare so they just gave up. Soyrizo taco? I can get that at Papalote for cheaper and better, guaranteed. PLAYED.
Oooh…or maybe Timothy just stopped smoking weed and became way less chill and together with evil chef created a way lamer menu? I mean, that’s why he acted the way he did, right? He was like the most productive stoned guy on earth. I don’t know…maybe some seitan killed his mom. WHO KNOWS; but I’m pretty sure a veg chick dumped his ass. I’ll be back with more theories later! Or you know, be bored with this and move on! Whatevs!
