Throw all your hands up
Some wondrous food adventures were had during my recent Southern Californian vacation, but none quite as joyous and inspiring as Anthem Vegan.
San Diego is one of the must-visit destinations for plant-based food lovers and one of the most convincing reasons is this 100% vegan market stall. Anthem Vegan is a labour of love for its activist owner Patrick who serves up some of the tastiest food I have ever had the pleasure of devouring.
The stall travels around various locations in San Diego and my pal Steven and I made sure we crossed paths with it at the Pacific Beach Farmer’s Market. I was overwhelmed by the gorgeous menu and infinitely more so by the food itself.
Steven picked up the Chick’n Cordon Bleu Sandwich featuring grilled chick’n, sweet chilli seared ham, scratch made bleu cheese dressing and baby spinach on a wholewheat bun. He told me it was one of the best things he had ever eaten.
I grabbed a Steak n Bleu Sandwich featuring the specialty vegan meat, crunchy fried onions, the bleu cheese dressing, spinach and pico de gallo. I was in ecstasy. The cheesy taters with fluffy topping made the experience even more incredible.
The person standing next to me was gracious enough to allow me to photograph her taco purchase. The good stuff was never ending.
