Vagabond Restaurant Review – A Worthy Lunch Trip
Vagabond Restaurant & Bar has launched their lunch menu from talented Executive Chef Alex Chang. Guests can expect the classics, such as the turkey sandwich featuring provolone, lettuce, tomato, green goddess, and country bread ($12), as well as light bites such as the Chinese chicken salad with herbs, avocado, citrus, and almonds ($14). Check out the Vagabond Restaurant Review Video:
The Tsukune Sandwich ($14) stole the show! This incredible Japanese Chicken Meatball sandwich (pictured above) was inspired by Chef Alex’s time in Japan when he became obsessed with Yakitori (Japanese-style skewered chicken). The Yakitori influence is most prevalent in the tare sauce which delightfully smothers the chicken meatballs. Tare is a thickened soy sauce that is commonly found in yakitori. The sandwich includes scallions and pickled cucumbers as well as a Nori (seaweed)-based mayo. The sandwich comes with a side of potato salad.
For the adventurous eater, Chang offers a delicious pork tonkatsu sandwich with yuzu kosho, sauerkraut, and spicy mustard ($12), and of course the infamous Vagabond cheeseburger, featuring dry-aged beef, B&B pickle, and remoulade on a potato bun ($15). The desserts were outstanding as well, with the Date Scone with Honey Butter being my fave.
