North Austin just keeps getting better and better! As a proud north Austinite, I was so excited to try out our latest kick-ass new(ish) vegan-friendly trailer Good to Go, located in the NATY lot on Anderson Lane. The trailer is all vegetarian, with almost everything veganizable. In the four months that they’ve been open, Good to Go has added more and more vegan options, like vegan pesto and vegenaise, making it my new go-to spot for a quick dinner. They even have a ton of gluten-free vegan options, with a gluten-free bun option provided by Happy Vegan Baker! With five vegan patties to choose from, including hempseed, portobello, boca, and house made edamame and black bean patties, and a dozen ways to jazz them up, there are seemingly endless burger possibilities.
After working my way through most of the menu, some of my favorite combinations include:
- Edamame patty with the Thai topping: Daikon and carrots marinated in veggie fish sauce, cucumbers and spicy vegenaise
- Black Bean patty with the chili cheese topping: Soyrizo chili, romaine, tomatoes, red onions and daiya cheese
- Portobello patty with the beet topping: roasted beets, romaine and daiya
- Hempseed patty with the basil topping: pine nut basil pesto, romaine and daiya
If you’re looking for a good side to accompany that burger of yours, try the veganized mac and cheese, homemade potato and beet chips, or some hummus topped with veggies and tahini. Some of the burgers can get a little pricey when you start to add extra patties, toppings, etc, so if you want a great option that doesn’t break the bank, try the patty melt or the quesadilla.
I bet you’re thinking, “Hey, I really need to check that place out!” Guess what? Vegans Rock Austin has the meetup just for you! This Thursday (12/13/12), at 6:30pm, meet up with a bunch of awesome vegans (myself included) and try out this new vegan burger haven. Hope to see you there!
