Killer Vegan Panini
Killer Vegan is a diner and delicatessen in Union, NJ. I love this place. They started off small with only a few sandwiches and sides and a twice a month all you can eat brunch. Yes an ALL YOU CAN EAT VEGAN BRUNCH! They have burgers, panini’s, sausage and meatball sandwiches, new dinner specials every week, disco fries (!), cheese fries (!) homemade cakes, cookies, milkshakes and more! I’ve been here a handful of times already and it’s been fun to see their menu and hours of operation grow. My last visit their I had the new Killer Vegan Panini. Filled with Country Fried Seitan, avocado, arugula, tomato, onion and chipotle mayo. It was perfectly paired with the kale slaw. The seitan was so delicious I wish I had a plate of it to myself!
Brunch at Killer Vegan is alway’s All-You-Can-Eat and alway’s amazing. A buffet filled with homemade sausages and tempeh bacon, biscuits and a cashew sage gravy, tofu scramble, steamed greens, arroz con gandules, pancakes, french toast and home fries. On one or two occasions I’ve also spotted and dined on some deliciously sweet plantains.
One time a woman on line asked me what to put the cashew gravy on and I just said “Everything. Just put it on everything.”
Their burger menu has grown from 1 burger to 4 different burgers including the original KV Burger (pictured), the Gunslinger Burger, which my husband enjoyed on our last kidless visit there, a Pizza Burger and The Killer, which I’m looking forward to trying the next time I visit. Its 2 burgers, cheese sauce, sauteed onions and coconut bacon. I can’t say no to Coconut Bacon! The burgers are house-made, delicious and they don’t fall apart. I’ve never been disappointed.
Sausage and Peppers
One of my favorite things about Killer Vegan is that they make their own sausages. I love store-bought vegan sausages and buy them all the time for convenience but when a restaurant goes out of their way to make their own it’s special and I notice and I eat them. Nothing beats a house-made sausage and pepper sandwich!
If you can’t tell by these pictures I really dig Killer Vegans Kale Slaw. When you order a sandwich it comes with chips or you can upgrade to one of their sides. I alway’s upgrade to Kale Slaw. It tastes exactly how I make my own Kale Slaw at home and I really should go for one of their other sides like Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Fries or Mashed Potatoes but I just really love Kale Slaw!
Not pictured are the vegan Milk Shakes and desserts I’ve tried at Killer Vegan. Nine different Milkshake flavors from Mint Chocolate Chip to Butter Pecan and desserts like Red Velvet cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mini Cupcakes, Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake and a Cookies and Cream Cake. I could live happily eating at Killer Vegan forever!
If you are in the area take a peek at their menu and plan a trip to eat here!
