Let’s just start with the name, shall we, and how much I dig it: Peasant Food Manifesto. I mean, honestly, the quirky/cool name is the first thing that inspired me to even look at the menu online, and then, after seeing the menu I knew I had to have their food in my mouth and in my life!
My only regret with the Peasant Food Manifesto is that I didn’t order more food to nom on. #sadface
Because I’m a predictable hipster-hybrid sort of gal, I of course LOVE Vietnamese phó, so obviously I ordered the phó flavor inspired French dip sandwich. The “pho-renchy” was hella creative but also hella refined with it’s flavors and preparation (I could have drank the broth straight up – and did a bit at the end). Basically, a home run. Why oh why do I have to live 5+ hours away from this fusion goodness?!
These days “fusion” cuisines are pretty common thing with food carts/trucks – and really, I usually love most fusion foods, but typically, they’re fairly predictable combinations. PFM manages to still surprise and delight with their fusion fare! I mean seriously, they recently featured a ramen burger on their menu. Did I mention I live 5+ hours away and how sad I am by that?!
If you’re in the Seattle area check them out. They’re doing awesome/inspiring/fun/tasty things with food!
Note: if you happen to be a vegan or even a half-assed vegan like myself they have you covered with the “Inigo Montoya”, which is also an option if you’re sticking gluten-free.
