Drunken Noodle

If you were sad when Coconut Midtown closed, cheer up. It’s back, with a different name, Drunken Noodle, and a slightly different menu. I stopped in for lunch last week. The menu had a helpful “V” next to all the dishes that can be made vegan, which made ordering very easy. I looked at the appetizer listings, hoping to get …

Oakhaus

My friend Deborah and I had lunch at Oakhaus in Oak Park last week. This restaurant opened about three months ago on Broadway near 34th Street, but this was my first visit. I didn’t see anything specifically vegan on the menu, but there were some items that were easily veganizable. For starters, they have a Tofurkey Beer Brat option for …

Oh Yeah, I’m on Vacation!

I must have been so excited about going over 2 million subscribers on YouTube that I completely forgot to publish the traditional, “Chef John is Vacation” post.  Okay, that’s probably not the actual reason, but I did want to mention it. Hard to believe we have that many people following the channel, and that’s without the help of any Russian …

Allrecipe’s Epic Grilling Giveaway on Amazon Alexa!

I don’t do a lot of giveaways, or any giveaways, but I’m not above promoting one, especially when I’m part of the prize! Sure, my Summer Grilling Guide is a consolation prize for those who don’t win a new Char Broil grill, but technically, it’s still a prize. Here is the link to enter. Good luck!.

Philz Coffee

Bay Area coffee chain Philz Coffee opened a location in Sacramento a few days ago, and if the early crowds are any indication, it’s going to be very popular here. The line for coffee was out the door when I went to check it out, but since I’m not a coffee drinker anyhow, I headed to the food section to …

Little Belgium Deli and Beer Bar

My husband Phil and I took a drive up to Auburn over the weekend, where we spent a very pleasant afternoon. There must be lots of vegans up that way, judging from how easy it’s been to find restaurants offering vegan options whenever I’m in the area. In the past, I’ve blogged about Joe Caribé Bistro & Café and Nectar Café. …

Burly Beverages Gift Shoppe & Tasting Room

I’ve been hearing about the house-made sodas and other drinks offered by Burly Beverages for quite awhile, but had never actually tried them. Then a couple of items popped up in my Facebook news feed. First, I saw that Burly Beverages had partnered with Conscious Creamery to offer soda floats prepared with vegan gelato. Does anything sound better in the summer than a root …

Happy 5th of July!

I hope you had a great holiday, and that your food was just as impressive as the fireworks show, or visa versa. We’re going to take a few days off, so there won’t be any new videos this week, but that’ll give you time to catch up on the ones you’ve missed, as well as continue to build suspense for …

Roxie Deli

I had such a good sandwich this past week at a place that I’d never visited before. Roxie Deli in East Sac is known mostly for their meat sandwiches and barbecue, but they also offer a delicious veggie sandwich. The sandwich, which I ordered on a sourdough roll, was stuffed full of all kinds of good things: hummus, avocado, artichoke hearts, …
