New menu items at the Vertical Diner
My husband and I have been going to the Vertical Diner since they opened about three years ago. Chef Ian Brandt, from Sage's Cafe runs this more casual, more yummy restaurant. I don't even think Sage's has a deep fryer. I digress. Everything on the menu is spectacular, so you can imagine how excited we were to see NEW items!
Pictured above is a chicken pot pie made with seitan (my favorite meat substitute beside tempeh!). This was just lovely to eat. It had a biscuit on the bottom! I was so surprised!
The hot wings were the special that night and they were amazing. They are made from seitan, battered and deep-fried. The sauce was so sweet/sour/hot I made a weird face every time I took a bite. I should have ordered a pear cider to go with everything, but there is always next time.
