Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats, DC #5

Sticky Fingers is not known for their food. They are known for being a great vegan bakery. That said, they have a new savory menu this year with an emphasis on some healthier items. I started taking a class in Columbia Heights and figured I'd stop by on several occasions to give their food menu a try.

So, I started with one of their old staples -- the Grilled Daiya for $7. I remembered this as being good and I think it has only gotten better. Perfectly grilled, this sandwich is loaded with Daiya cheese and I added tempeh bacon too. It was really good.

On the next visit, I had the Power Salad for $8.25. This is an entree sized salad loaded with kale, quinoa, avocado, cucumbers, carrots, and sundried tomato Beyond Meat. It is served with hummus and a ginger sesame aioli. I think it is the sundried tomato Beyond Meat and aioli that really make this dish. The ailoi is super creamy and is great with that spicy Beyond Meat and when all mixed together, it is delicious. I think this is my favorite meal at Sticky.

For my last visit, I ordered the Texas Burger for $9.50. I always said I'd never pay nearly ten dollars for a Gardein burger I can buy at Giant across the street, but I decided to try it anyway. I was pretty impressed. Yes, you can get this burger anywhere, but your burger probably won't taste this good. It is on this hearty Lyon bun that you can only get at Sticky Fingers that is perfectly toasted and topped with lettuce, tomato, melted Daiya shreds, tempeh bacon, and ranch dressing. It was really good. I think it is the Daiya shreds, delicious bread, and creamy ranch that made all the difference. Whatever it was, it was good, and I'd order it again.

I also love that they offer a lot of healthy drinks. You can get Gouter's tonics, organic juices, and Fentiman's drinks there. They've got a great selection.

I might have also had a red velvet cupcake too. I'm not telling.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how much the savory menu has improved. This is a great lunch and dinner option especially if you are on the go because they bring the food out fairly quickly. And I love how fresh it all tastes. Just don't forget to grab a chocolate cupcake too!
