Few takeaways have introduced crowds of individuals to queue to Deep Ellum like Slutty Vegan, which opened the doorways to its new location in Could. Slutty Vegan Dallas serves hamburgers, sizzling canine, different sandwiches, and fries in a walk-in setting the place clients would line up and wait upwards of half-hour per order and extra at peak hours.
Our query: is it value it? It is simply vegan quick meals, if solely The New Yorker wrote about it.
Seize a Dallas eater with a vegan pal who loves an Inconceivable or Past burger and check out a handful of bites. Be aware: Dallas has a brief menu, and a few objects usually are not obtainable right here, together with the Heaux Boy (and apparently each merchandise has vegan shrimp), so the primary merchandise on our record of issues to strive wasn’t an choice.
To begin have been two burgers, the Fussy Hussy ($15), a quite simple burger, and the Tremendous Slut ($15), a burger loaded with guacamole and jalapenos. Regardless of Slutty Vegan promoting that its burgers are made utilizing a alternative of Inconceivable Patties or past, the place we’re at is a query mark; The choice choice is just not displayed. My vegetarian pal declared it a standard, respectable burger.
The Tremendous Slut was far more moist than a burger ought to be, just because the mix of melted vegan cheese, guacamole, and slut sauce (which is a scrumptious, spicy orange sauce with a secret bitter ingredient added) added in loads of moist components. As a meat and burger lover, regardless of the patty was, it was the least satisfying a part of the burger. The primary drawback is the feel – it seems to be pre-formed and frozen, which is generally an issue, however undoubtedly not all, meat-based quick meals burgers have outgrown them.
Every merchandise got here with a aspect of Slutty Fries, and the Slutty Mud on them was pure magic. Additionally, we ended up with an entire brown bag filled with French fries that have been nonetheless scrumptious the following day. The thickness of this curly reduce helps protect it.
Subsequent got here Hollywood Hooker ($18), a slutty vegan tackle Philly steak. It was one of the best sandwich and it is particular sufficient to encourage ideas of a return go to. It is made with vegan floor beef, vegan provolone, jalapenos, bell peppers, caramelized onions and vegan mayonnaise, all served on a hoagie. The excellence of this sandwich lies not directly within the minced components—the vegetable meats are reworked as they grow to be approximate to free meats.
Then got here the Sneaky Hyperlink ($15), a vegan sizzling canine topped with Hawt Toddy Chili and served on a pretzel. This sizzling canine has one taste: beans. The sausage inside was good however gave the impression to be made with beans, which is a tasty thought however falls quick when the chili on it’s a bit too flaky. The feel of the chili was fairly thick, and the chili general was disappointing due to it. The sausage was good sufficient that it is value attempting the Large Dawg, which skips the chili and goes with sauerkraut and Slut sauce.
Lastly, Hawker Fries ($10.99) – a brand new menu merchandise added at first of June. This loaded potato is meant to return with the whole lot Hollywood Hooker. The photographs on the web site and press launch about this merchandise confirmed much more meat on high than in actuality, which was heavy on the melted vegan cheese. It tasted nice, though there have been no caramelized onions wherever. They’d be higher with out the shredded lettuce, which did not fare so effectively below all that yummy cheese.
The OG Lemonade ($4.99) and Farmer’s Punch ($4.99) have been refreshing, well-mixed drinks that paired effectively with sandwiches and burgers. Further sides of Slut Sauce ($1.50) and Ranch ($1.50) have been ordered however weren’t within the bag. It will also be any quick meals place when it is busy, which Slutty Vegan all the time does, so double verify your order.
From getting into the road to getting the meals was near 40 minutes – and that was throughout off-peak hours, round 3pm, over the weekend.
