The Patio Grille and Bar.

Went to The Patio Grille in Manhattan, KS for dinner! With a chill atmosphere, it felt like home.  For starters, we had the coconut shrimp – which was quite legit.  I could have eaten 6, 987 of them.  Promise.

I ordered the Pulled Pork Nachos.  I know, I know, it wasn’t anything super special, but they tasted great.  The pulled pork had a sweet bbq sauce and with the spicy queso cheese, every bite was legit.  Just wished it came with some pico or fresh guacamole.  It was a great time with the family!  🙂

No Meat Treat!

A friend and I went to a vegan restaurant called Fud (pronounced as Food, but I can’t find the symbol to put over the “u”).  Everything was fresh and I think they had a little garden in the back.

Legit!

We started with the Nachitos.  They were a smaller version of the Nachos.  This little appetizer packed a lot of flavor and I didn’t miss the meat!  The organic corn chips were topped with nacho nut cheddar, El Cream (vegan sour cream), salsa, and guac.  These nachos were awesome!

So good! 😀

As an entree, I ordered the two fried tacos filled with Jack Phish (Jack fruit infused with chilies, cacao, and seaweed), cashew cheese, and lemon cream.  The duo came with a side of salsa and guac.  This was very de-lish and filling!

Up-close. I can’t believe this doesn’t have meat!

During my second year of undergrad, a friend and I decided to go Vegan for a month. All we ate were veggie stir-frys, chips, and potatoes.  If Fud was around, I’m sure we would have been more motivated and creative.  This is a wonderful restaurant with a great mission!  I WILL go back again!

54th Street… the deuce.

As an earlier post, I mentioned 54th Street restaurant as a favorite of mine.  During this meal, I got the Southwest Chicken wrap (delish) and waffle fries (even more delish)!  The chicken wrap has a fajita-esque taste with lettuce and crunchy pieces of tortilla chips.  The waffle fries here are the best I’ve ever had, hands down!

That’s what I’m talking about!

My friend Abbey had the nachos.  Of course, you can never go wrong with this big plate of goodness.  Get yours!

Gorgeous!
