Green Means Good – Phoenix
Thank you SO very much for your love and support on Wednesday’s post. It means more than you know! xo
As you know, I’m making my way through vegan eats in Phoenix. I’m hoping you’re enjoying the journey so far.
We made our late night stop at Green following the 3rd Thursday Adventure Run at Road Runner Sports in Tempe. Initially we had thought about just stopping for dessert at Nami, but since we had yet to eat dinner we hit up Green first (Why yes, we did get ice cream at Nami following our dinner. Wouldn’t you?) We arrived shortly after 8:30pm to realized they closed at 9:00. No worries as they were quick to say, “Come on in!” (Everyone has always been so friendly to us).
Prior to our arrival we didn’t know if Green was a sit-down or counter service. Upon entering we found that it would be a counter service experience. Nice and laid back.
I immediately loved the flow of the restaurant with the painted wooden tables along with tree stumps for some of the seats. Patio dining is available but the far end also has a see-through garage door that can be opened up for open air dining too.
I think everyone will agree that this is the coolest ice machine ever….
Quick examination of the menu had me wanting everything on the menu. It’s so nice not to have to decipher which items are vegan and which ones aren’t. I settled on the Mexicali Burger. However, when I went to order I noticed the special….”The Big Wac”. What?! This is what everyone has been talking about in the Green Facebook Group. You see, The Big Wac is basically the vegan version of the Big Mac. It’s not always available and absolutely everyone was raving about it. I made the quick switch, ordered the Big Wac with fries and D order the Kung Pao bowl.
Before we knew it our food had arrived. I’ll apologize now for my poor photos. It was late, we were hungry, and the lighting wasn’t great.
Did the Big Wac live up to the rave reviews? Yes, and more! Although I admit I was never a huge burger person even prior to going veg this may be one of the best burgers I’ve had in my life. Seriously. David’s meal was also tasty but after a nibble of my burger he immediately wished he had gone for the Big Wac too. Partnered with the yummy thin fries I had the perfect meal.
I can’t wait to return to have another fantastic meal!
Keep Smiling and Be Grateful =)
