What does a vegan eat at the Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House?

The Luv Burger.

It’s the only vegan entree on the menu.  I think it’s excellent.  (You can also order the fried chickpeas for a vegan appetizer:  delicious!)  The Luv Burger is a somewhat spicy black bean burger…Mmm.  You can have it with regular fries, sweet potato fries or salad (vegan salad dressing is available).

Luv Burger (black bean burger) means cows luv it.

Sweet potato fries

The seasonal beer that I like right now is Chasin’ Freshies.  I like the snow scene on the bottle, but it would be way cooler if that snowboard was replaced with some telemark skis!  I’m getting excited for the snow to fall. 🙂

Last thing:

The menu at the brewery has a “V” icon for “Vegetarian” items.  Too bad that most of those items are not vegan.  (Also, take note that the vegan sounding soup of the day– white bean minestrone– contained a broth of boiled down chickens.  I’m glad I asked the waitress.)

WTF??…How can duck fat be considered vegetarian??  (Yes, I filled out a comment card!)

Duck fat is NOT vegetarian!

Highline Bar – Seattle, Washington

Are you craving those classic greasy appetizers– like Fish & Chips and Buffalo Wings– but you don’t want to cause animals any harm?

Do you want to tear into a BBQ Pork Sandwich, but you don’t want knives tearing into pigs?

Are you craving some cheesy gooey-ness but you care about cows?

Well…Vegan dreams DO come true!


Highline is a vegan bar/restaurant located in Seattle at 210 Broadway Avenue East.  It’s a bit dark and dingy in there, and there’s nothing fancy about the place.  This is a bar, after all.  The menu is yummy.  On a warm, sunny day, it’s nice to sip and eat from the balcony while people-watching.  Funny…I always feel like I need more tattoos when I’m in this neighborhood!  Here are some things we’ve ordered…

PULLED BBQ HERO – Soy-chicken, sauteed peppers & onions smothered in house made bbq sauce topped w/ coleslaw.

REUBENDER – House-made vegan pastrami w/ russian dressing, smokey provolone cheez sauce & sauerkraut on grilled rye.

FISH & CHIPS – Crispy soy-fish strips (with nori) & french fries w/ tartar & lemon.  (You really must try them to believe how good they are!)


PELE WRAP – Maple teriyaki tempeh w/ pineapple, spinach, cabbage, red onions, miso-sriracha aioli.

THE MELTDOWN – Vegan tuna w/ mozzarella style cheez on grilled bread.

CAPANOTA WRAP – Chunky eggplant capanota, avocado, spinach, sun-dried tomato cream cheez, and vegan cheez curds.
