Veg Out ‘N About (in Central Oregon):
New to Bend’s restaurant and pub scene in 2012, Broken Top Bottle Shop and Ale Cafe has numerous vegan items on the menu, and often a vegan special or two. Vegan menu items are clearly marked as vegan and the menu has helpful suggestions for making other items vegan. Some of the selections created by Chef Bethlyn Rider include: the Tempeh Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut and (by special request) Thousand Island dressing made vegan with Vegenaise, the French Style Philly dip made with Portobello mushrooms and caramelized onions, served with veggie au jus, and the vegan Faux Sho egg-less salad and Faux Sho chicken-less chicken salad.
