Saturday started off at Foodswings in Brooklyn, a vegan fast food joint. As you walk in you notice the tables and chairs that appear to be randomly placed in a do-whatever-you'd-like here kind of way. The menu is on the blackboard and the woman behind the counter seems nice enough. I assume she's vegan as she looks like "post-punk kitchen."
I ordered the ham and cheese cuban style, which meant it had mustard and pickles.
Zach ordered the tempeh reuben. I think this joint stays true to its mission of providing vegan comfort food. Aside from that, I think they could improve on otherwise great dishes.
The ham and cheese was satisfying, but definitely would be better on an artisian bread that is toasted in the same way that Sticky Fingers steps up their grilled cheese.
The tempeh reuben had the same feel...it needed something else. We also ordered the big sampler plate with broccoli salad and buffalo wings. The buffalo wings were pretty good...the salad was okay. All in all, it is a satisfying place, but not anything to write home about. They do a good job of providing vegan comfort food, but I wouldn't go out of my way to hit this restaurant.
