Veggie Watching the Washington Post Food Section, 3.4.2009

Of possible interest to vegans and vegetarians in this week's Washington Post food section:
  • Review of Soul Vegetarian Cafe & Exodus Carryout. BBQ tofu subs, mac and cheese, collard greens, and candied yams. I'm definitely going to have to check this place out. Other reviews of this restaurant may be found over at Happy Cow.
  • It's the Post's third annual Beer Madness tournament. Thirty-two beers, divided among four categories - lagers, ales, specialty & fruit beers, and dark beers - compete for the title of best tasting beer, to be decided on March 25. I'm somewhat intrigued by the Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat beer, which made it to Round 2. I don't think I've ever tried a fruit beer. Maybe I'll try to order something like that the next time I'm at Drinking Liberally at Capitol City Brewing Company in Shirlington.

Soul Veg can be great. I think it's their take on the traditional soul food menu, with its mac and cheese, collards, and beans, that's better than the burgers and other mock meat items. It is a little slow, but since it's close to U street, you can always go there and make a day of it.

I think I'm really over the whole mock beef and mock chicken thing. I've actually never tried vegan cheese, so I am curious.

And if it's too slow at Soul Veg, then I would just go to one of the Ethiopian restaurants on U Street and get vegan or vegetarian food at one of those places.
