Our Christmas shopping trip to Irvine Spectrum today centered on eating lunch at the Veggie Grill. Many of our outings center around eating at one place or another, but what was unusual is that D. agreed to this destination even after I told him it was a vegetarian restaurant. We wandered by at noon and it was pretty crowded so we carried on with our shopping until we were both getting crabby and our stomachs were even crabbier.
I ordered the V-burger and D. got the All-American Stack. We both opted for the Sweetheart Fries. I had the Peach Iced Tea and D went for an all natural Cola since he couldn’t get Coke. Talk about “meaty” deliciousness. I was impressed and D. ate his Stack and admitted it was quite tasty and even said there were things on the menu he would like to come back and try. For a dedicated omni that is really saying something. I tried a bite of the “steak” from his sandwich and it had a nice bite to it. The whole wheat buns were fresh, the fries were crispy outside and sweet and soft on the inside. The Peach tea was not too sweet, something I hate with the Nestea versions of fruit tea. All in all a great meal that left us full but not overly so, and promises of a return trip.
We finished up our shopping a little less crabby!
