Hello veggie world! As I am writing this I am enjoying a nice evening inside, cuddling with and getting kisses from my cat, while a blanket of snow covers my yard and all the trees still standing from the hurricane. I really hop everyone is getting by after these past two storms in New York.
However, I want to talk more about my birthday weekend that I spent at Penn State. I used to go to PSU frequently, back when I went to school in PA, but now that I am back home in New York, I only go about twice a year. While visiting there often, I found many places that I loved eating at, and now when I go back to visit I make sure to hit all my favorites. One of my absolute favorite places to eat at is The Corner Room. The restaurant itself is nothing too special just a nice little place connected to a bar. But they have a few vegetarian options and they are all delicious!
I started with an appetizer on the specials list, green salad flat bread. This was so good! It was spinach feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes and kalamata olives on top of a layer of amazing garlic hummus, all piled on four slices of flat bread. I cannot tell you how good this was! I love Greek flavors (yay Greek heritage!) and this was so fresh and delicious!
Ben started with an order of mozzarella sticks, and of course I had to steal one or two. These were so good too! The outside was perfectly crispy while the insides were soft and cheesy. It came with some really tasty marinara sauce for dipping.
The main reason I go to The Corner Room is for the amazing veggie burger they have!
They serve Garden Burger brand for their veggie burgers and they add a verity of California flavors. This burger comes with tomato, sprouts, avocado, red onion, tomato mayo, and melted cheese all on a deli roll. So good! This veggie burger always comes with a side of mangos! How awesome is that??
I happily stuffed my face with these amazing vegetarian dishes. If you ever find yourself in the Penn State area, first go to Mario's, then go to The Corner Room. Then to the creamery!
What are your favorite veggie burger toppings?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
