My BFF Sheridan's birthday is August 8, so she and her husband Drew came to Memphis over the weekend to celebrate. They arrived on Friday in time for lunch (they live in Little Rock, about two hours away), and we'd already placed a pre-order for vegan meals from Shroomlicious (an awesome vegan ghost kitchen pop-up!). Shroomlicious doesn't have a place to eat, so we took our food to Grind City Brewing to enjoy with beers. Here's Sheridan and Drew.
Here I am with my sandwich!
I had the Philly Cheesesteak with mushrooms, onions, and vegan cheese. So good!
I thought I wanted to eat lightly because I knew we had fun dinner plans too. And I didn't want to get super full at lunch. But turns out I was still hungry after just a sandwich (should have gotten fries). Luckily, they shared some of their tasty Vegan Eel Wings with me. These were made with fried oyster mushrooms, and they were perfect!
After lunch, we explored the Crystal Shrine Grotto (an awesome crystal cave at Memorial Park Cemetery), and then we went to Soul and Spirits Brewing to drink more beer and play darts.
Paul joined us when he got off work!
We had dinner plans at Good Fortune Co., but Paul was tired from work, so he went home after the brewery while we went on to dinner. Good Fortune has, hands down, the best vegan food in Memphis!
I ordered some Charred Edamame as an appetizer. This stuff is amazing. It's served with chili salt for dipping, and I can never get enough.
For my entree, I ordered the Coco Curry Ramen with extra tofu. They have three vegan ramen bowls (all with handmade noodles), and I've now tried all three. I think this one is my fave so far. I loved that curry broth!
To drink, I had Sake Masu, which is served in a wooden box. There's a whole ritual around it that's pretty cool.
We ended the night with pinball at Flip Side. And then the next day, we got up super early to grab breakfast at Brother Juniper's before they had to leave.
We all ordered the Spicy Tofu, which is served atop home fries (with more on the side) and is loaded with jalapenos! Nice and spicy!
I love my best friend! We only see each other a few times a year, and we always have so much fun!
