Spring has sprung at Woodbridge Pub! The new menu has been out for a few weeks but Brian and I have been so busy that we didn't make it over there until this weekend.
The following menu items are vegan:
Appetizers: Salsa Verde, Hummus w/ Tapenade
Soup: Carrot Ginger
Salad: Moroccan Carrot
Sandwiches: Stever McFever, White Bean Burger (both menu mainstays)
Entree: Seitan w/ Rice Pilaf
Sides: Grilled Asparagus, Spring Vegetable Saute, Rice Pilaf, Roasted Red Skin Potatoes
There are also a few other vegetarian items, as well. Well done, Woodbridge. Well done.
After much deliberation, I decided on the seitan entree. It came with three house-made pieces of seitan atop a large bed of rice pilaf. The pilaf is brown basmati rice with almonds, golden raisins, and peas. Swirled around it all was a grape and fennel sweet and sour sauce. Overall, it was a delicious and flavorful dish. The seitan had a nice meaty texture and the combination of ingredients in the pilaf was just right. I also really liked the flavor of the sweet and sour sauce. As much as I liked the pilaf, however, it seemed to be a disproportionate amount for the dish. I would suggest serving it with about half as much rice and subbing in some grilled asparagus, instead.
|Seitan w/ Rice Pilaf - $13.00|
I only had the entree but Brian ordered a cup of Carrot Ginger soup (to go with his non-vegan shepherd's pie) and he let me take the first taste. Both of us thought it was good. It had a strong carrot flavor but the ginger was less pronounced. I'll order it for myself next time so I can give it a more thorough review.
|Carrot Ginger Soup - $3.50 (cup), $4.50 (bowl)|
