|Portabella sandwich - $8.95|
Last weekend Brian and I went to Rochester Mills Beer Co. for dinner. They have a portabella sandwich that is incredibly delicious. In fact, the main reason we went was because of the sandwich since everything about it is verifiably vegan (unlike other places where the bread may or may not be vegan). The sandwich consists of grilled portabella caps and sliced eggplant, roasted red peppers, lettuce, onion, and sundried tomato pesto (although I asked them to hold the onion and pesto). It's served on house made focaccia bread and comes with potato chips and a pickle. The sandwich is so fresh, juicy, and flavorful. I highly recommend trying it if you have the chance.
The other vegan option at Rochester Mills is a hummus sampler with edamame, black bean, and red pepper hummus, as well as pita and veggies for dipping. Maybe next time I'll try that. There are also a couple of vegetarian and gluten-free options. The menu is clearly marked and our server seemed knowledgeable about ingredients. I'm sure they would be as accommodating as possible. Oh, and as you may have gathered from the name, Rochester Mills is also a brewery. Not sure if the beer is vegan but Brian's a big fan (and he doesn't worry about fish bladders, anyway.)
