When I heard that a Wahoo's Fish Taco restaurant was opening in Midtown, I wasn't very interested. After all, what could a fish taco place possibly have on the menu for vegans? But when I checked out their website, I saw they actually had a few vegan options, so my son Zack and I stopped in for lunch on opening day.
I ordered the Banzai Bowl, consisting of bell peppers, onions, zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, and a choice of protein. I chose the tofu, which was sautéed in a spicy teriyaki sauce. This dish is served with rice and beans. Both the black beans and the Cajun white beans are vegan, so I had both with my meal. I also asked for the brown rice, which is vegan. The white rice is not. This was a very tasty plateful of food and extremely filling!
We went back again later in the week. This time, I ordered the Son of Classic Burrito, which is so new that it doesn't even appear yet on their online menu. In addition to the tofu I chose as my protein, this burrito contained beans (I asked for half black beans and half Cajun white beans), citrus slaw, and roasted red pepper salsa (I asked them to hold the cheese). I liked this dish even better than the Banzai Bowl.
