So if you’ve been following along with our posts this summer you probably saw our disappointing meal at 50’s Prime Time a few weeks ago. Luckily they held true to their word about adding a vegan options to the menu and it has finally arrived.
Cousin Harold’s Plant-based Entree is vegan as is. The dish comes loaded with kale, white beans, lentils,, onion, tomatoes and a mushroom ragu. It is on top of a polenta cake and then topped with a tofu ricotta. Can we all just laugh for a second at a vegan option listed at “Market Price”?
Our friend Jo was the one who tried it and told us about it. She said the dish was good but she was hoping for something more similar to the other entrees on the menu for non-vegans. Everything on the menu is very home cooked comfort food-like and this didn’t really fit the vibe. But she was glad they had an option and enjoyed it.
For dessert they have pulled the vegan s’mores option they had and now have a Traditional Plant-based Apple Crisp that you can get plain or A La Mode. They have also been known to (sometimes) make vegan shakes here. You can usually just get them at Tune-In Lounge too. She opted for vegan brownies instead though and said they were just okay.
I’m glad they finally have a vegan option on the menu here (for the first time in years), but I don’t think this really fits in with the rest of the menu like Jo said. I think this would be another great spot for something like the vegan Revolutionary Meatloaf from Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom. But it’s a step in the right direction and I’m sure many vegans are glad they have an option for when their family drags them here. I just don’t see myself running there to try it personally. Again, thanks for the information and photos Jo!
