Did I mention the drive thru?

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying new vegan friendly places in the city or in other towns, that I forget to stop and appreciate all that I have right around me. Moving to Limerick, we are close to a few towns that have lots of great vegan friendly options. One that I have had my eye on for a while was the French Quarter Bistro in Royersford, PA. I had read online that it was very vegan friendly, but had yet to go. I finally got to try it a few weeks ago, and I will definitely be back to try other options they had!

Although we went on a Friday evening, there weren't too many other guests there around 7:00. By the time we left though, there were a few other tables starting to fill up. The ambiance is nice and dimly lit. It's nice it's right on Main street in Royersford, but parking was a bit tough on the street. Luckily, they also offer parking in the back of the building, which we plan on using next time.

I was super excited when I spotted the Vegetarian/Vegan section of the menu. I knew they had options, but I thought I would have to ask what they were or try to make something off the regular menu vegan friendly. Not quite! Too many options (is there such thing as too many?). I was excited to see how such an expansive vegan menu would be.

Above, we started with the Korean "Steak" Tacos. These were awesome and I would have happily have ordered the entire thing as my entree. The steak was delicious and the seasoning/rub was perfect. I was also excited to have vegan cheese on the taco to add a nice touch.

For my entree, I wanted to try another one of their "meats" to see how it was to know for next time. I chose the Grilled "Chicken" and Apple salad. This was a great dinner salad. Many times I choose not to try a salad my first time at place, but this made a perfect entree. The apples were deliciously crisp, the chicken was a great seitan, and the almonds added a nice touch.

Safe to say, we will definitely be paying French Quarter Bistro another visit for their awesome vegan-friendly menu! Bonus - I've seen them listed on Restaurant.com with a coupon in the past - so that is a great way to try it!
