My friend Brian and I went to the Grasshopper for their monthly $10 vegan buffet.

No Name

IT WAS SOOOOO GOOOOD!!!!!

I had this amazing orange chicken-like dish that seriously made me question my omnivore-ness.

I can’t believe it wasn’t meat!

During dinner we were seated with a vegan body-builder monk. He told us super cool stories about his past, and recommended tasty places in the area.

He told me I could become super buff with kale and spinach. Time to turn into Popeye!

He was super cool!

After dinner, Brian and I discovered FoMu, a vegan ice cream shoppe, and root, a vegan burger joint, were right next door!

OH MAN!!!!

THEY WERE AT THE TOP OF MY TO-EAT PLACES!!!!

We were unfortunately too full for root…

….but not for ice cream!

Cake Batter

There were so many delicious flavors!!!

Due to my intense discomfort with uncooked eggs, I’ve always avoided flavors such as cake batter and cookie dough.

The moment I saw those flavors on FoMu’s menu, I knew I HAD to try those flavors.

THEY WERE AMAZING!!!

My life is complete!

I love brunches with Eli. He’s super cool!

He fixes up motorcycles and builds campers!

We decided to hit up Patty Chen’s Dumpling House, since it was their opening day.

Patty Chen

The dumplings were delicious but the wait was too long. Maybe because it was their grand opening, but the wait staff seemed super disorganized and messed up our order. Bummer.

Luckily, it was dumpling festival day!

We roamed the streets for super tasty $1 roadside dumplings.

Nom nom nom.

I went to my first renaissance faire a couple of weeks ago.

It was awesome!

chili

Immediately I wanted to eat everything. However, I got defeated by the first food item I bought, a giant bread bowl of chili.

After chili, I really wanted to nap. I looked to plot down under the shadiest tree, but instead found the Mud Beggars.

They flinged a great show.

joust

At the end of the faire, I saw a jousting match. I didn’t think the knights would joust for real, ’cause it’s super dangerous to get impaled by a long rod charging at horse-speed.

But they did.

A man got knocked down from the horse.

Crazy.
