Vegan fast-casual chain Veggie Grill’s second Portland-area location is now open for previews and will expand to the general public at 11am on Thursday, May 31st. We were invited to a complimentary lunch today at their spacious new downtown location at Taylor and SW 5th.
The space is bi-level with counter, table, and booth seating. Order at the front counter and grab your number and a seat. They also offer grab-and-go and catering.
In addition to the new launch, they have added some new menu items which are also available at their Cedar Hills Crossing location in Beaverton.
Homestyle Plates are their new entree items with three choices…
- Urban Plate (blackened tempeh, camelized onion, portobello stack with a side of Steamin’ Kale, sliced tomato salad, and chipotle ranch)
- Blackened Chickin’ Plate (with papaya salsa topping, a side of Steamin’ Kale, and Quinoa Pilaf)
-Crispy Chickin’ Plate (fried chickin’ with a side of cauliflower-mashed potatoes, porcini gravy with fresh rosemary, and Steamin’ Kale).
There’s a new entree salad, the B-Wing Salad (buffalo wings over a salad of chopped romaine, avocado, celery, roasted corn salsa, and ranch dressing).
There are also three new sandwiches/burgers…
-Buffalo Bomber (crispy chickin’ tossed with spicy buffalo sauce, tomato, red onion, lettuce, and ranch dressing)
- VG Rollers (blackened chickin’, cabbage, creamy Santa Fe spread rolled in grilled flour tortillas and served with salsa and chili)
-“Crab” Cake (crispy “crab” cake, spiced tartar sauce, pickles, tomato, and lettuce on a bun; pictured below with a side of Cauli-Mashed Potatoes)
Speaking of, the two new sides are Quinoa Pilaf (with sauteed carrots, celery, and onions) and Mashed Potatoes + Gravy (aforementioned cauliflower-mashed potatoes with porcini gravy and fresh rosemary).
Lastly, the new dessert is Chocolate Pudding Parfait (their previous chocolate pudding now topped with chocolate sauce, crushed cookies, walnuts, and VG crema).
