Today I headed over to Telegraph Station for their Compassion Over Killing Benefit Day. In celebration of today, the Chef Adam Jirgl and Chef Jens Pedersen put together a selection of Vegan dishes.

Items on the menu include:

Spicy Beef Asian Lettuce Wraps (3) – Marinated veg-beef served on a leaf of lettuce with Vermicelli noodles, carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, and Hoisin – peanut butter dipping sauce; $7.50

Seasonal Fruit Salad – Kiwis, apples, grapefruit, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and mint; $6
Veg-Chicken Sliders with Guacamole (2) – Seasoned Veg-Chicken on  a slider bun with lettuce and homemade guacamole; $5.50
Cajun Veg-Chicken Gumbo – Homemade vegetable gumbo with okra served over rice with bread; $6.50
Gazpacho – Traditional Gazpacho made in house with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, green peppers, and olive oil; $5

I just wanted to go ahead and post the menu for anyone who was interested in attending tonight. The event started at 3 p.m. and will end at 10 p.m. They will also have a live band performance for your entertainment. A portion of the proceeds will go to Compassion Over Killing which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending animal cruelty in agriculture and promoting vegetarian eating. For a full review, please stay tuned.
