Burgers and Dogs

Mi Lah has meant a lot of ups and downs for me. After my review early last year, things have slipped quite steadily after a rotation of chefs.

I had to try the seitan burger at Mi Lah because it's a rare sight to find a veggie burger made this way. The marinated seitan has a barbecue flavor and the texture of the ground seitan is interesting. It's like the time we put seitan in the meat grinder attachment on the Kitchen-Aid (his old one, not mine!) and made seitan sliders. I picked out the seitan and left the white bun behind. I would have liked a more rustic bun with some bite to it. Soft buns remind me of fast food. The sweet potato fries should have been sliced thinner to make them crispier. My coffee was water. Mi Lah, I am sticking with your salads.

My mom left a Standard Tap burger in my fridge last night and it is the first meat that has ever been in there. I wish there was a support group for this.

I'm gonna mellow out a little and show you the first photo of a dog that has ever been posted on Living on the Vedge. Audrey is a firecracker and this is but one of her many get-ups. She never stands for a bad meal, and that is why we share a wink every now and then.

hmm I'll agree last time we were there my tofu hogie was a bit soggier than I would have liked.. Also the bread/roll def or breaks a sandwich.

I was there last night. The sauce was awesome, but the "cauliflower steak" was just a bunch of steamed cauliflower.

I love dressed up pets! As far as Mi Lah goes - I've only been for brunch (it was lovely!) - but I have heard 'meh' things about their dinner.
