The Foundation Lounge (Main Street)

Foundation title It seems as though I’m on a vegetarian rampage. Last Sunday I had dinner at Bandidas on Commercial, and this week, I had lunch at The Foundation Lounge. As I mentioned on Twitter, Mexican cuisine is actually largely vegetarian/vegan, and I am, after all, a scholar of environmental policy (so, eating less meat does reduce my ecological footprint – congruent with my research and values!)

I had been to The Foundation with my friend Todd Sieling before, but somehow I never wrote about it. Todd and I recently met up for lunch again, and we returned to Foundation for a second visit. The first time I was there, I had mango with black beans on a bed of rice, but this time I tried the “BLT-ish” sandwich (vegetarian bacon, lettuce, tomato and guacamole). For $7, I would say the “BLT-ish” a really good deal, as it includes a side salad. I wasn’t hungry at all after lunch, which means that (at least for me) the portions were generous enough.

I would strongly recommend The Foundation for lunch, I haven’t really been here for dinner but as far as lunch goes, the service is prompt, cordial and the food is really good. The previous time I needed to add salsa to my rice as it was a tad sweet, but this time, I think I made the right choice for food. And of course, catching up with good friends and engaging in intellectually stimulating conversations is always fantastic.

Russ and I once went there for what we’d hope would have been brunch. We sat down, weren’t treated very well, read the menu and after careful thinking we decided that nothing on the menu sounded interesting. I hate to say that we quickly got up and walked out.

I don’t think this is a place for the beef loving individual that I am :)

Food – good.
Price – great.
Service – spotty at best.

Been there many times and this is always the outcome I end up with. :)

That looks pretty good actually!

I’m always a little wary of those kinds of places, but these past few months when I had to go on a particular diet to get rid of some skin and health problems, I was very thankful for “alternative” food options in groceries and restaurants.
