Mission Vegan: SF Vegan Drinks at Dr. Teeth


This is a strawberry-basil caipirinha. No, there is nothing in a regular caipirinha that makes it non-vegan. This did not stop SF Vegan Drinks at Dr. Teeth and the Electic Mayhem from featuring the same on its menu today, nor did it stop me from ordering and devouring one! I guess they just thought that since vegans love fresh produce we’d appreciate having it served in a cocktail? Whatever their reasoning, it worked on me, and I’m usually a tough sell.

There’s also nothing about tater tots that makes them un-vegan, unless they’re coated in animal secretions, but sweet potato tater tots are another Vegan Drinks upgrade I happily fell for. The first basket of tots to arrive at my table was neither vegan (they were dusted with cheese) nor made of sweet potato. Remember last week when we talked about how it’s tough to rely on things you order in restaurants to be vegan? That’s still true even at an event with vegan in the title! I sent them back politely and waited what seemed like months to get my order. When they came, though, they were great, and the waitress brought me a free vegan white Russian with them for making me wait so long, which was sweet of her and delicious to me.

Dr. Teeth:
Kitchen ≠ reliable
Servers = nice
Food and drink ideas = good (especially at Vegan Drinks!)
Back patio = Really nice (cornhole and skee-ball)

    Somet’in’ to watch out for: tater tots are often stuck together with egg. Beware.

    My guess is that the tots aren’t vegan because they are most likely put in the same deep-fryer oil as chicken and whatever else they deep fry.

    Ping-pong enthusiasts shouldn’t post shit on non-ping-pong specific blogs.

    Cause, you know, no one plays ping pong in this neighborhood. Or likes vegan food. How about grow up and stop being fucking trolls, and if aren’t interested in something, don’t read it?

    Caroline – bummed I missed this! Were I not currently hopped up on Vicodin from a couple of broken fingers, I would have been there. Next month!

  9. I wanted to go, but was too busy getting drunk in SOMA. What a jerk, I even posted about it on Vegansaurus.
    Why exactly shouldn’t vegans bother drinking? It’s like, my favorite pastime. Enlighten me.

    Aren’t white Russians made with cream? Thus not vegan friendly?

    • D. Jon Moutarde says:

      She said it was a VEGAN White Russian, so I’m guessing it was made with some kind of suitable cream substitute — Wikipedia suggests vanilla soy milk. You can go all orthodox drinkie, but I don’t recommend it, since this is a blog that endorses putting a Chef’s Salad in a Bloody Mary.

    I feel like this post isn’t really gonna get off the ground until that Deth Vegetable fella comes up with his amazingly witty and original vegan put downs…
