My friends Susan and Megan joined me for lunch at Nigel and Andrea's Orange Mound home (known as Irie Vegan Kitchen) last Friday. I opted for the Vegan Philly Cheeseteak Crepe with a side of Garlic Kale.
The savory menu features crepes stuffed with either pizza filling, cheesesteak filling, vegan caesar steak, or pesto chicken, plus they have a chicken bacon ranch sandwich, a smoked sausage sandwich, vegan fish tacos and sides of garlic kale, scrambled tofu, pancakes, herbed roasted potatoes, salads, and juices.
The crepes come in large or small. I recommend the large (plus a side) if you want a full meal, but you could also try two smaller crepes in different flavors to mix it up. Here's a large all folded up.
Inside shot before I bit into it! This had vegan steak, vegan cheese, peppers, and mushrooms.
They also have a mouth-watering list of sweet crepes, but we were too full for dessert. I'll have to make a special trip soon to try the lemon cream, Cupid's Choice (not sure what flavor that is!), or Triple Threat (also don't know the flavor there, but I'm guessing it involves chocolate).
Irie Vegan Kitchen is located at 806 Newell, and lunch is served from 11 am to 3 pm. Reservations are highly recommended since this is a private home. If you'd like more info on how to contact Nigel and Andrea to make a reservation, I'm happy to share their contact info in a private message. Just email me at phillipsbianca[at]gmail[dot]com.
