But yesterday GoogaMooga sent out an email... about BaconLand, which will feature a flight of fine bacons. But just below that part of the email there was something about vegetarians. "We heard you," it read. "There’s more to life than bacon[land]." And on the website there's a list of all the vegetarian and vegan meals that will be available at the festival, which look pretty ok. More than that, though, the veggie-friendly vendors at the festival will have on their booths green signs instead of black, which is a very nice thing to do. Isn't it nice when someone makes you annoyed and then tries to make good? (Almost makes you forget they're gonna kick the shit out of that park you love.)
As for vegans, I think there are a few things for you to eat. Let's try to walk through the possibilities.
Mother-in-Law Kimchi will be serving its signature dish, a cold kimchi salad with soba noodles and a spicy sauce. Sounds vegan, unless they put eggs in the sauce. You wouldn't think so, but who knows anymore? And Willow Road will have a charred bean salad that should be ok, unless they put eggs in the beans.
Otherwise, there are some question marks: Seersucker will serve a falafel with yogurt; maybe you could ask them to skip the yogurt? Rosemary's will have vegetable antipasti, which includes cabbage with pecorino; maybe they can hold the cabbage? (Cuz the Brussels sprouts and chick peas look amazing.) Sun in Bloom, a very vegan-friendly restaurant, will have a parfait made with its coconut-kefir, but a commenter on Gothamist says this is vegan, and its advertised as "allergen-free." Is that a euphemism?
