Where do I head when the V-Grits food truck isn’t out and I’m in need of gnarly vegan noms? No place other than a fried chicken joint! It might come as a surprise that Joella’s Chicken has one of my favorite plates of food in town. They have a Vegan Chicken Plate that’s impressed several of my omnivorous friends, leaving their bellies full (even from the ones who claimed vegan food isn’t filling 😉 ) and taste buds satisfied! Their spice blends give their vegan chicken a nice kick! As for sides, my go-to’s are always the Crispy Thin Fries, and Kale Salad with currants and almonds (minus the cheese!)! Other vegan side options include a Black Eyed Pea Salad and a Vinegar Slaw. Maple Syrup and BBQ Sauce are the two vegan sauce options, but bringing my bottle of Follow Your Heart vegan ranch has never disappointed me!! Wash it all down with one of their tasty, cane-sugar house sodas and you’re set! Happy eating, folks!
