Last night we had dinner at Woodbridge Pub, located near Wayne State University in the Historic Woodbridge neighborhood. The building has been there for a long time but was renovated a few years ago and turned into Woodbridge Pub. There are lots of big windows to let in natural light and the inside décor is trendy yet homey. They have a good selection of beer and wine, much of it local.
When we first ate there in the winter I had a delicious tofu sandwich on sourdough bread. There were several vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, although the sandwich was the only vegan entrée. When we went last night I was all set to have the sandwich again but was surprised to find a whole different menu. They have a local and seasonal menu so I was looking at their spring menu. Their vegan menu items include 2 appetizers, 2 burgers, and 4 sides. One of the sides is a vegan mac and cheese! There are also quite a few vegetarian items. It's a little pricey but considering it's local and the food is really good, I'm okay with paying a little extra.
For an appetizer, Brian and I shared the Red and Black Bean Dip, which is just mashed beans, onions, and spices. It was very fresh and flavorful. For my entrée I had the White Bean Burger with a side of grilled asparagus. The burger was delicious! The texture, along with the cumin and parsley, reminded me of falafel. It was served on a fresh bun from Avalon. Yum! I’ll definitely be returning for another meal off their spring menu and can’t wait for what their summer menu will offer.
