While chatting on the phone yesterday with my friend Jerry he mentioned a trip to Austin tomorrow for brunch with a friend. I asked where he planed to go and the response was something very un-vegan. Jerry is an ex-vegan, sadly. He was a volunteer at Food Not Bombs in Denver (Facebook), but somewhere between Denver and San Antonio he picked up meat again. I recommended he and his friend try Counter Culture since the brunch we had there during my Birthday weekend was very tasty.
Counter Culture’s Hangover Brunch
It was a hangover brunch event that Daniela from VegAustin.com had recommended to us at The Gathering of the Tribes. Counter Culture served Strawberry Cashew Creme Stuffed French Toast, topped with Fresh Strawberries and a side of Tempeh “Bacon”.
Counter Culture’s Stuffed French Toast with Tempeh “Bacon”
It was really delicious. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a big fan of mock meats, so the Tempeh’s smokey flavor didn’t go over well. I gave my portion to Mark, which he loved. The Stuffed French Toast was plenty, I did steal some extra strawberries from Mark. We like to share.
An open letter to Jeremiah Teutsch:
Hey buddy. I think you should come back over to the veggie side. I mean, you worked with Food Not Bombs for Christ’s sake. How punk rock is that? I think something in your life is missing and it’s your morality. Where did it go? Mark and I will totally support your transition back. We can go grocery shopping together, make dinners and maybe go “Joggin’ with Jerry” along the river. I’m sorry I’m not punk rock enough to make SA’s chapter of FNB cool, but I can at least try to make you cool again. Lub you!
