When you think of comfort food, a vegan option may not cross your mind first. But Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey will make you think twice next time. The menu is known for its biscuits and gravy, chicken and—you guessed it—whiskey. However, this vegetable-based plate holds its place among the rest.
The Oregon Trail is loaded with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, kale, sliced carrots, scallion, poblanos, and a bulgogi glaze. The sweet potatoes give a smooth consistency to the base, complemented by the crisped kale. The glaze is a Korean-inspired sauce, made with sesame, carrot, and green onion. Each bite leaves you with a hint of savory and sweet. Still hungry? Pair the plate with a Boomtown biscuit and one of the menu’s six butter or jam options. You won’t need more than that—trust us. The Oregon Trail is enough to fill you up, and if you’re lucky, you’ll have leftovers.
