First off, the server was very knowledgeable about a vegan diet and helpful in navigating the menu. We had three vegan options for dinner: a black bean veggie burger, Korean BBQ tempeh tacos and an Asian peanut salad. We opted for the tacos and the Asian peanut salad. The tacos were great; the tempeh almost tasted like it was salt-cured and had a rich BBQ taste. The tacos were covered with fresh shredded carrots. With the tacos, we had a choice of sides. Vegan options include raw kale chips, potato wedges, white bean salad, a small salad or apple slaw. We chose the slaw, which had a sweet and vinegary taste, and had the rare (at least in restaurants) combination of tasting delicious and being healthy. The Asian peanut salad had a kale base, apples, green onions, carrots, cabbage and delicious Asian peanut sauce. The salad had surprises in every bite and made for a great entrée.
Fowl & Fodder has several smoothies that are vegan (made with almond milk) and they serve fresh juices as well. They also serve breakfast 7 days a week, and have one vegan option: avocado toast. We look forward to trying that as there is such a dearth of good, hearty vegan breakfast options in the region.
We love the commitment of Fowl & Fodder to locally-sourced, organic food. Efforts like this help create a demand for better agricultural practices in Northwest Ohio. Also, Fowl & Fodder works with Beyond Basics Health Consulting (BBHC), a nutrition consulting company in Toledo. There are BBHC approved items on the menu, all vegan. We like that a restaurant is committed as well to helping people make healthy choices!
Fowl & Fodder’s menu changes on a seasonal basis. This review was based on the Late Summer menu. We look forward to returning again!
