When I heard that Founding Farmers was rolling out a new vegan menu, I was disappointed (because its Tofu & Chips were my FAVORITE dish in the city), but I was stoked to try some new things. I decided pretty early on that I was going to try the Bacon Burger, mostly because a picture I’d seen made it look pretty awesome. So I went with that, and Joel got the Meatloaf. When the entrees arrived and we started eating, I was so bummed! So, Founding Farmers is doing this new localvore, where they source everything from local farmers (this is a good thing, yes), unfortunately, and the burger was a patty fashioned from rice and beans – not so much flavor. The meatloaf? A patty fashioned from rice and beans with ketchup on top. Sad face, Founding Farmers. Founding Farmers does have AWESOME fries, though (my only complaint is that they give you, literally, a few teaspoons of ketchup — the little side cup they give you isn’t even half full – boo).
In fairness to Founding Farmers, my tastes tend toward the unhealthy, so for folks who may be into “healthier” flavors, this new menu may tickle your fancy. Unfortunately, it didn’t tickle mine, which is disappointing.
