Central Saloon

The Central Saloon is a good place to sit and drink in a noisy dirty dive bar in Pioneer Square, but it doesn't quite deliver foodwise for the vegetarians. The menu is promising, and says that any burger can be made with a black bean patty in place of meat, but the long haired waitress explained that they no longer do that.

There is one vegetarian sandwich type option that they do do, and it consists of two slices of heavily buttered toasted bread, a smear of cream cheese, a little half-melted cheese, lettuce, 2 tomato slices and 2 cucumber slices.

A six-pack of condiments, including at least 2 kinds of hotsauce. I do like that.

The fries had the skin on (a plus) but were limp soggy with grease (a minus).

The menu also listed mac and cheese, but I'm not sure whether it indeed exists.

It is possible to find something here to eat as a vegetarian, but it is sort of survival vegetarian food and I think I'll make an attempt to eat elsewhere should I ever go back.
