Foodswings - Williamsburg: $7 for $15 Worth of Vegan Fare and Shakes at Foodswings

The hardest part of eating vegan is explaining to the family that the flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon serves up healthy vegan and vegetarian fare for eaters of all persuasions: for $7, you get $15 worth of delicious vegan eats and shakes at Foodswings, located on Grand Street near Havemeyer Street, about a block away from the Knitting Factory.

Foodswings' eclectic menu disproves the notion that deep-fried, hangover-killing comfort fare has to come at the expense of our fishy, furry, and feathery friends. Stop in for a starter such as the signature pu pu platter ($11.50), a smattering of mock-chicken nuggets, sea styx, and Foodswings drumsticks paired with their respective sauces (buffalo, barbecue, and sweet barbecue). Heartier offerings include classic deli fare with a vegan spin, such as the tempeh Reuben (marinated tempeh, soy swiss cheese, warm sauerkraut on rye, $7.50) and Philly cheesesteak (marinated mock steak and onions, with a choice of Daiya cheese, $8.25). Burgers such as the diminutive kickin' veggie slider ($3) and the sloppy Vegan Heart Attack (soy burger with soy bacon, soy cheese, and the usual vegetable fixings, $7.25) appeal to herbivores, omnivores, and pretend-carnivores. To satisfy sweet cuspids, Foodswings offers more than 20 shakes and floats, including the Tank (chocolate ice cream, peanut butter, cookies, $4.50 for a regular size) and the Dark & Stormy (ginger ale and chocolate ice cream, $2.75), which is also the name of Pat Boone's book about riding in yachts.

Foodswings opens its doors and its heart to the public each day at 11:30 a.m., and remains that way until 11 p.m. on Monday and Sunday; it is also open until 12 a.m. Tuesday–Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, offering an abbreviated selection of midnight munchies during the wee hours. The eatery accepts cash only, so plan ahead and glue a few gold doubloons into the lining of your jacket should your order exceed the value of today's Groupon.

Foodswings is a cash-only establishment.

Reviews

New York magazine featured Foodswings on its website. One hundred forty-nine Yelpers give Foodswings a four-star average rating, and 92% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • The "chicken" drumsticks in Buffalo, barbecue, and Southern-fried versions particularly impress, approximating their free-range equivalent in taste and texture – Andrew Sessa, New York
  • The french fries are literally amazing and the buffalo faux-chicken sandwich is sinful. – Jackie S., Yelp
