Last week, Saturday, after finishing my morning
cup of Bustelo, I was day dreaming about delicious vegan breakfast food, when I got a text from my neighbor Kat that said, "Breakfast?". I think she must have read my mind! She suggested we go to Tweet (5020 North Sheridan Road, Chicago, IL), because they have vegan options.
Once we arrived, there was a bit of a wait, but since they are known to have killer Bloody Mary's at Big Chicks, the bar next door, we didn't mind one bit! I think it was probably the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. It was super spicy and filled with lemon, celery, carrot, and giant green olives.
About half way into our drinks they sat us at a table. I was pleased to see that the vast menu had many different vegetarian and a couple different vegan options. I ordered a breakfast burrito, the #5- Numero Cinco: Vegan's delight, flour tortilla stuffed with organic beans, organic brown rice, avocado, pico de gallo, organic tofu scrambled in olive oil. Before the burrito arrived they brought out fruit cups filled with a variety of fresh berries, pineapple and melon, yum! The burrito was just as on point as the fruit and drinks, in fact I have not been able to stop thinking about it since I have eaten it. It was perfectly seasoned and quite honestly, contained the best tofu scramble I have ever eaten.
If you have never been to Tweet, do yourself a favor and check it out. (Be sure to bring cash because they are cash only.) You will not regret it I promise!
