While researching veg restaurants in Columbus on Happy Cow, I stumbled upon a bar called Hal + Al's that serves only vegan food. Vegan bar food? I had to try it, even if it is in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood.
My good friend Cory met me there and we ordered several items on the menu.
First, 8 Layer Nachos with soy cheese, green peppers, veggie chili, olives, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers and jalapenos.
Mac 'un Cheese with Tofurkey hot dogs..really great and so American, I just wish there was more sauce!
And the Luna Burger, served with tomato, onion and lettuce on a pretzel roll.
I have to admit, driving there, I wondered what we were in for. Even after I walked in the door, I was hesitant. Normally, I don't have high hopes for bar food. However, everything we had was really good. I mean, great vegan bar food, what more could you ask for?
They also have Vegan Chili, Fried Pickles, Beer Brats, Fried Avocados and Mushrooms and Tacos, just to name a few. Again, the neighborhood is not exactly somewhere you want to spend a lot of time exploring, but Hal + Al's is definitely worth a visit!
