Best Menu at Vegetus
The burgers and nachos this place offers are superb, quite filling, and healthy as well. Furthermore, the buns used for the burgers are organic too. The burrito bowls and salads are mouthwatering. The bulgogi wrap and mac ‘n cheese are their specialties. The Caprese panini served here is exceptional in its taste and presentation. Also, the lentil burgers and mushroom cream pasta are quite yummy too. Everyone should try their Bolognese pasta and the bean salad.
I ordered the Vegetus Burger, the signature menu of this vegan restaurant that I had looked for in advance. It was a clean burger with various vegetables such as organic bun, crispy lentil patty, roasted eggplant, onion, and mushrooms, seasoned with cilantro and vegetarian mayonnaise sauce. The cilantro flavor is not that strong, so I think anyone can eat it without any burden. The lentil patty is always right that tastes familiar to vegetarians. Another peculiarity of this burger is the mushrooms. Instead of button mushrooms, which are often used in burgers, the Vegetus Burger contains oyster mushrooms that make it much more savory.
However, personally, I felt that if lettuce or romaine had been added instead of lettuce which is well known to be wrapped together when eating Korea BBQ, the texture would have been crisper and better. Also, for me, it was a difficult decision to choose between a side salad or fries.🤦🏻♀️ hehehe How good would it be to give them both?😆
Burrito Bowl (Gluten-free)
The burrito bowl is turmeric long grain rice with lentils, salsa, cashew nut cheese sauce, and cilantro sauce. More, you can’t go wrong with nacho chips in Mexican food! Even though it was vegan, it was visually appealing with the authentic Mexican taste. It has an exotic flavor of cumin like chili con carne, a Mexican bean dish. However, we both are Korean, my friend who went with me had a feeling needed some spicy while the middle of eating, so I ended up bringing the hot sauce on the side of the restaurant to the table. Clear all dishes with chili! 😉
You would never pass the peanut butter bar and the oatmeal cookie at the counter. That is lovely and tasty. Moreover, the gluten-free carrot cake with a tinge of cinnamon flavor and gluten-free coconut cake here are super fluffy and delicious. What’s more, Banana bread and chocolate muffin is my favorite with soft and moisture texture. Their café latte and warm fudge brownie are beyond delicious. Lastly, Home-made lemonade and their kombucha taste amazing.
