Meat free is calling and we are goin’ in deep
Hey y’all. This month we’re lovin’ the green kitchen vibe. At Funnybones we dig a plant- based diet, and our vegan food is just as full of soul and attitude as our meaty dishes. Take it from us, you earthlings will not leave hungry.
Vegan food is big here, and it’s makin’ a noise Stateside too. Which US city is top dog when it comes to meat-free menus? Those cool dudes LA and NYC are in the running, but nobody else is touchin’ Portland (Rip City), Oregon.
Portland has the highest number of vegans per head of population and over 50 all-vegan restaurants. So, get you Rip City, home of the Food Truck Scene, the Beet Tartare, the SloSmoMoFo and the Mississipi (bento) Bowl.
How do we compete? Well pretty darn good actually. King UK vegan cities include Edinburgh and Brighton with Bristol leading the way. Take a bow Brizzle with your 197 vegan-friendly restaurants and the first vegan vending machine in the country.
At Funnybones we gotta a whole lotta veg action satisfaction goin’ on, so if you’re lookin’ for ideas to bling up the veg, you sure have come to the right place. You missin’ a spicy chicken wing or a meaty burger? We got you covered. Looking to ramp up the sweet spot? We got plenty of vegan sweet treats calling your name.
There ain’t nobody to beat you on flavour if you cook clever with authentic spices, salsas and marinades and serve up big hearty dishes of proper green goodness. We got us some neat ideas to help you do your thing and bring out some greatness. Here’s a loada inspo for y’all to chew on…
