Union Street is known for
its beautiful Victorian buildings and bustling shopping scene. Visitors to the
area also flock to the 100% plant-based Wildseed – one of the area’s most
popular and inviting restaurants. With an emphasis on seasonal produce and a
variety of flavorful dishes, this eatery provides a unique and exciting dining
experience to guests.
The highlight of
Wildseed’s offerings are the pizzas. The crust is thin and the cashew
mozzarella melts perfectly. The Beyond sausage on the Spicy Sausage Pizza packs
a punch and is complemented by mushrooms, chilis, and basil. Try the Funghi
Pizza to savor shiitake and hen of the woods mushrooms with a delightful
truffled béchamel sauce.
In the mood for
pasta? The Rigatoni Bolognese is hearty and flavorful, with Beyond meat
crumbles adding a meaty texture. Another great choice is the Butternut Squash
Ricotta Ravioli, which comes with a unique brown cashew butter sauce. Both
pasta dishes are topped with a great non-dairy parmesan.
The menu also
features several salads. The Ensalada Andalusia’s black ash cheese and coconut
bacon make it a standout offering, but be sure to substitute the honey and
sherry vinaigrette for another dressing if you’d like to make it vegan. Another
favorite is Wildseed’s twist on a classic Caesar, the Chicory Caesar salad.
Crispy chickpeas and sourdough-nori croutons make for a great variety of
textures, while the non-dairy Caesar dressing ties everything together. All of
the salads come in generous portions and are perfect for sharing or saving
Don’t forget to
finish your meal with dessert! The warm chocolate cake is delectable and is
topped with cacao nibs and sea salt. It pairs perfectly with the accompanying
