Food & Restaurant Review
406 H street
Washington, DC 20002
It’s been scientifically proven that the food we eat can affect our mental health. I’ve been trying to eat healthier and get more vegetables in my diet by being plant based. Burger King had been in the news for introducing the impossible whopper made from plant based ingredients. Traveling in the city, I passed a local shop called Farewell and decided to try something new. (This was before Covid 19) The inside of the restaurant gave me the feel of walking into a boutique cafe diner. I wasn’t dining in for dinner. It was my Friday and I wanted to get out of my work clothes soon as possible. I ordered take out and got the Beyond Burger with mushroom “bacon” with tomato, lettuce and caramelized onions with a side of garlic aoil. The patty texture was a mixture between ground pork and the flakiness of fish. The “bacon” actually tasted and felt like crispy pork bacon.
It tasted really good. The patty was a regular size but for over $18 bucks they should have offered double “meat”. That’s my beef with vegan restaurants.(Pun intended.) They’re a little expensive but it’s understandable why they are priced that high. Ground beef is plentiful. I could get the same size patty in meat form at McDonald for less than $3 dollars. It didn’t even include a side order.
Would I go there again? Yes but on someone else’s dime. Farewell is a nice experience for someone who wants to try something new for Sunday afternoon lunch. Unfortunately the dining area is closed due to the coronavirus. As we move to the next phase of the pandemic, I will consider Farewell a place I can guilt a coworker into buying me lunch.
