Vegan Restaurant Review: Evolution Fast Food-San Diego, California

This past Friday, me and Dennis (my husband) decided to take a trip to San Diego. After checking the happycow.com app on my cellphone and seeing what vegan restaurants were there, we decided to go to Evolution Fast Food.

Once we arrived at Evolution, I was completely surprised that they have drive thru service as well as a place for customers to go inside and order food. Their menu was pretty extensive and I was really impressed by the variety of desserts they had such as cookies, cakes, cheesecakes, and parfaits.



 While we were there, they set out this tray of green goddess pasta salad which was pretty tasty.


Den ordered himself some vegan "chili" cheese fries. These fries were topped with vegan chili and mozzarella dayia cheese.The fries were the perfect blend of spicy (due to the chili) and melty (due to the cheese). I could tell that Den loved them too because as he was eating them, he was humming a happy song.


 
I ordered the mushroom swiss burger which contained an amy's vegan burger, veganaise, tons of button mushrooms, dayia cheese, lettuce and tomato.As I bit into the burger, I could taste a variety of different textures combining together;the crunch of the veggie burger along with the smoothness of the mushrooms. I also liked that while the burger was topped with dayia cheese, it worked well with the veganaise and was not overpowering at all.

We also ordered some chick'n tenders and I was completely blown away by how close in both taste and texture these were in comparison to real chicken strips. Evolution is great in that they provide three different sauces for your dipping pleasure: bbq, ranch, and chipotle.
Den also ordered a Bacon Chesseburger with their homemade black bean burger patty. His burger contained the black bean patty, veganaise, vegan bacon, dayia cheese, lettuce and tomato. He said it was pretty awesome and it hit the spot considering he had been craving a bacon cheeseburger for a while now.
For dessert, I had a slice of their chocolate cake and it was okay. The cake itself wasn't as moist as I expected it to be but the icing was perfect!All in all, we had a great time at Evolution Fast Food and plan on heading back there the next time we're in San Diego.
