( – Downtown Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: Nearly a decade ago, I was visiting my sister in Irvine, California, and she introduced me to a new restaurant she discovered: Veggie Grill. About five years later, it appeared in Seattle, along with coupons for free entrees! I took the whole family.

Type of cuisine: “Behind each veggie-filled dish is a story that starts long before that first bite. It all begins with like-minded people we love—those who go the extra mile to grow the best ingredients out there. Once those fresh ingredients reach our kitchen, we take our time to make each dish right….We cut veggies, not corners. That means from chopping to saucing, we are always coming up with new ways to celebrate the best of every season, bite after craveable bite. At our place, we work to make bold and innovative dishes that offer a whole new experience for your taste buds and make you feel like you’ve never felt before….It’s that last bite you fight over, that side you share while you tell a story, the drinks you’ll make a toast to. And that’s what we’re about. Because at Veggie Grill, we believe in firsts, and seconds, and thirds. We believe in ‘more veggies, please!’”

A vegetarian’s dream come true, granting all the flavorful, delectable, hearty wishes and bringing them to your plate to savor and enjoy. Everything from quinoa bowls, kale salads and falafel sandwiches, burgers, sandwiches, tacos and nachos are prepared fresh and served right to your table.

Ambiance: Clean and whimsical, lights with flair, accompanied by a base of wood to create the down-to-earth, homestyle vibe that will keep warmth in the air.

A fast food restaurant at heart, the fresh dishes are served on linoleum tabletops at booths or accented by chairs, beverages to which you may help yourself, and plastic plates that have certainly carried meals in the thousands.

Music plays overhead, though it is easily in the background as conversations are heard throughout; lunchtime patrons taking a break from their offices, families with children eating their sweet potato fries, long-time friends on a shopping pause chatter about their days, their lives, their meals.

What I ordered: I have been back too many times to recount all of the dishes I’ve savored. But today’s post focuses on the first photos I remembered to take (strangely, somehow, Veggie Grill has always been a meal without photos, nor posts).

My husband’s favorite: Grilled Chickin’ with avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cilantro pesto, chipotle ranch, served with a side of fries.

And for me, the Fala-Full Salad served with 2 pita triangles, scratch-made falafel, hummus, skchug sauce, fresh herbs.

On a return visit, 3 July 2017: See? I told you we come here often, and it’s a wonder I hadn’t posted until just six to eight months ago. Anyhow, another Fala-Full Sandwich (2 pita sandwiches with scratch-made falafel, hummus, skchug sauce, fresh herbs, tzatziki, pepperoncini. Side of tabbouleh) for our shared meal this afternoon,

Backyard Spicy Fried Chickin’: 3pc. spicy fried chickin’, 1/2 street corn, pinto bean stew, cauli-mashed potatoes + porcini gravy, BBQ sauce,

and a pretzel bun burger with fries.

What I loved: The fresh ingredients, the tasty dressings, the hearty, satisfying burger and fries. It’s all good.

Why I loved it: A quick meal that you would have liked to pack at home, ready to enjoy on a day out around town.

Cost: Average ($10-15 per lunchtime meal)
