I opted for the fried cauliflower $6 and the Zombie Cocktail $6
Let’s chat about the Zombie Cocktail which is normally $12 …
It is loaded with Puerto Rican rum, Jamaican rum and 151 rum. You will only need one and you better drink responsibly. Have a prearranged designated driver because you’ll definitely want to partake in a second one.
Looks are definitely deceiving because this plant based burger from @jselbys tastes way better than it looks. Sorry that I couldn’t capture the cheese that was oozing out 😛😛 ➡️J. LucyThis is their take on the Minneapolis classic Juicy Lucy. A house-made Beyond Burger blend filled with molten melty cheeze and topped with tomato, lettuce, onion & mayo on a whole grain bun.
A must try for meat eaters #meatlessmonday #plantbased

🥰Special thanks to Natalie Morrow and Chef Demarco Cavil for inviting Minneapolis Entréepreneur along with other Bloggers to a private menu tasting of Gold Room Restaurant located downtown Minneapolis.
The menu is superior and every item we sampled was seasoned to perfection. There was no salt and pepper needed and every bite ended with OMG OMG this is incredible‼
Please make sure to add Gold Room to your list of restaurants to visit and support.
Check out the pics and description of each dish specially prepared for us by 👨🏾🍳Chef Demarco.

I’m elated to announce that Fig + Farro is a fully plant based restaurant now. Besides a few menu struggles here and there, they have been open a full year which is a huge accomplishment especially coming behind many failed restaurants in that same space.
Today I had lunch with my nonvegan friend Maria. She was open to trying plant based food but had her nose frowned up the entire time.
We eased her in with the jackfruit tacos. I knew the flavors would be common to her palate. Maria was pleasantly surprised. She enjoyed the taco as well as the spinach and farro soup that accompanied it.
I tried the new breakfast sammie. House made english muffin, tomato tahini, chickpea fritter, plant based sausage and arugula.
It needed a little salt and pepper and more sausage. Otherwise … really really delicious and filling.
