Local Sprouts Cooperative
Each meal came with a side of whatever the house salad of the day is. Ours was a warmed mix of greens, noodles, carrots, onions, and bean sprouts. It tasted like the inside of a spring roll. YUM! I cleaned my plate. The aioli on the bun was the perfect hummus texture, and the patty was a slightly sweet nut-based patty that had a similar taste and texture to baked falafel (see our recipe in the recipe section!).
I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who gets to visit my home state. I was truly proud to return and find that Maine is offering some delicious and quality choices for its vegans and just generally health conscious people. Afterward, we were lucky enough to peruse the (freezing) streets of Portland and see a vegetarian restaurant called the Green Elephant Vegetarian Bistro. The decor was really neat, but had already closed for the night so hopefully we make it back there this week!
