Vegan in San Francisco: Wild Seed
2019-11-07


San Francisco is a fantastic place to visit if you're a foodie because of culinary experts like Chef Michael Minna. There is so much to see, eat, and experience. Being vegan in San Francisco is easy because a lot of restaurants are familiar with the lifestyle and can accommodate a vegan diet. I prefer dining at an all-vegan restaurant. However, most vegan restaurants in San Francisco are casual, hole-in-the-wall places, located in the Mission.




The Mission district is grungy, with lots of street art, and filled with delicious restaurants. But sometimes a girl wants to get dressed up and go to a nice, trendy restaurant in a different neighborhood. That is why I am thrilled that Wild Seed has come to Cow Hollow, and I hope it'll be here to stay.


BEET AND ORANGE PÂTÉ


The Marina district locals refer to the restaurant's location as "Belga," a Belgian brasserie that served fries and beer. Now, Wild Seed, an all plant-based dining option, sits beautifully on the corner of Union Street. The restaurant feels like an L.A. eatery: Modern and trendy with accents of green plants. Everything you need to bring in a young millennial crowd, and in my opinion, San Francisco needs more restaurants like this.


ENSALADA ANDALUSIA


Ben and I dined at Wild Seed with our favorite couple on a busy Saturday night. It was a holiday weekend, and Union street was crowded with people. Luckily, we made reservations weeks ago, and we didn't have to wait for a table.

My friend Katrina introduced me to Wild Seed’s Chef, Alex, a few months back at Flores (located next door). At Flores, he sent out amazing vegan dishes for me to try and was very impressed. I was confident that Wild Seeds was going to be amazing.


MEXICAN CORN CAKES


Chef Alex had sent out a few of the popular shared plates for us to start. The "Beet and Orange Pate", "Ensalada Andalusia", and the Mexican Corn Cakes. My favorite was the Mexican corn cakes. For my main, Ben and I decided to share the "Supergrain Paella for two" plus a side of "Wood-grilled heirloom carrots" and the "Curried Cauliflower." You guys, the cauliflower was so good that we got an extra order.

Before dessert arrived, Chef Alex came out to say hello, and we thanked him for cooking us a delicious plant-based dinner. I'm excited to go back to Wild Seed and try everything on their menu. I will be back for lunch, and they just started offering brunch and happy hour! I love supporting plant-based restaurants because I'm putting my money towards a sustainable planet, the animals, and my health.

I love that Wild Seed motto is "Eat like you give a f*ck". They believe that every meal is an opportunity to choose better. Everything on the menu has been carefully thought out to ensure that every ingredient is sustainable, eco-friendly, and supports local farmers. Even the cocktails are crafted by season, and they serve local beer as well as vegan, organic, biodynamic wines.

"Wildseed is about giving everyone a chance to make a better choice. A place where you can feel good about the decisions you are making. I've assembled a diverse team of people who each bring their own unique perspective to the concept with the intention of having this restaurant resonate with everyone and to help them make easier and better food choices."
