Boston: The Otherside Café

I’ve been rather bad at keeping up-to-date lately – my most recent visits to The Otherside Café were during the second week of February! It’s one of my favourite haunts in Boston, being a loud, serious beer bar with lots of substantial vegan options on the menu.

The Vegan BLT at The Otherside Café

My first visit was a lunchtime trip, and I didn’t feel up to the B-4 (a black bean burrito the size of a small planet), so I decided to try a vegan version of something I’ve never had – a BLT. It filled the gap nicely.

The second visit, I tried the Nature Boy – a selection of vegan, raw food items served with dehydrated beetroot and carrots. I did this because I wanted something reasonably light. Oops. I never managed to finish it, because I was full. It was an interesting meal, thought the salads were nearer to dips. The “chips” weren’t quite dehydrated enough for my taste, and sliced a little too thickly. I’ve had similar dehydrated vegetables over at Grezzo which were much nicer than these. Admittedly they were probably more expensive, too.

Still, I’ll be back in the Boston area in July, and hope to get to The Otherside on a weekend to try their vegan breakfast burrito.
