Tips & Tricks for de Vere’s Vegetarians

December 22nd, 2011 | Comments (5)

So you’ve heard rave reviews for de Vere’s homemade bangers and mash, our famous burgers, and our out-of-this-world Reuben. Only problem is, maybe you aren’t a carnivore. Luckily, de Vere’s has got you covered! Not only do we offer a number of meatless options, but we also offer opportunities for you to customize our menu items to make them more vegetarian friendly! Here are a few of our favorite vegetarian dishes and creative combos:

Idea #1: Bulk up our Green Street Caesar Salad with some add-ons! Order this classic salad, but mix it up by customizing it with some fresh avocado slices! Pescetarian? We recommend adding the smoked salmon.

Idea #2: Adds some greens to your Mac and Cheese! Everyone loves this classic comfort pasta, but why not make it a little healthier and veg friendly by sneaking some peas in there? The de Vere’s staff recommends the complimentary combo of peas and red onion.

Idea #3: Ask for your This n’ That plate to come meat-free! This n’ That, as seen on the menu, comes with assorted cheeses, cured meat, and fruit, and is served with de Vere’s (famous and delicious!) Irish Brown Bread. We’d be happy to accommodate our vegetarian customers by subbing out the cured meat! Tip: This dish pairs especially nicely with a nice pint of beer. 

Idea #4: Take advantage of our delicious meat-free happy hour items! Deep-fried pickles are a unique and tasty addition to our happy hour menu, and our country crisps are always Veg friendly—and a total steal at only $3-$4! Idea

#5: Green-ify your Irish American Grilled Cheese! This one is simple: add some avocado to this American classic, because what goes better with gooey cheese than a perfectly ripe avocado?

    I don’t know why my comment was censored on this post the first time, or why my question was also ignored on the facebook page. I’m going to try one more time. Your “pub chips are always veg friendly”? Does this mean that your mushroom gravy doesn’t have animal stock? Because one of your Davis waitresses told me it wasn’t veg.

    I am sorry I missed your original question, but our waitress was correct and the blog was incorrect. Thank you for pointing this out to us. The correction will be made this week. The stock in the gravy is not Veg friendly. We have requested for our Chefs to work on making more soups and other items with Veg Stock when possible to make it more approachable to more people.

    Any chance on getting gluten-free options? (particularly for brunch on soccer matchdays!)

    we are working on it, any suggestions?

    One of my favorite Irish Pub’s is the Wolfhound Irish Pub in Seoul, South Korea. I mean, I’ve never been to Ireland so any Irish pub out of Ireland is going to have to make do with being part-embassy and not entirely authentic. What I love about the Wolfhound is that they believe in supply and demand. Even though the it is estimated that Korea is less than 1% vegetarian (and the UK is 5-10% vegetarian), the Wolfhead offers a splendid veggie burger. It makes sense for a pub with good ale to cater to people that are particular about the things they put in their mouth. I’d wager that vegetarians are more likely to be beer snobs. I know I’m a beer snob. I wish I wasn’t relegated to having to customize menu options (and most likely asking to hold the meat but still paying for the cost of meat on the listed menu’s item price). I am currently living abroad but I’m sure to find myself drinking at de Vere’s on E street when I return to Davis soon. I hope that when that happens the Chef’s will have found an official menu item for those of like that like our pint glasses black, but our dinner plates green.
