After the letdown of The Foundation not having vegan nachos I was pretty excited to try out the ones at Perch. We ordered a half order of the vegan nachos as we were not that hungry. This was still a HUGE plate of food. These nachos were also amazing – fancier than normal nachos. They consisted of lemon hummus on the bottom of the plate, layers of tortilla chips, daiya cheese, jalapenos, sun dried tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, onions and tomatoes, served with some Pico de Gallo. Sun dried tomatoes on nachos? Yes please! They were amazing! The flavor just melted together into a huge pile of deliciousness. I would highly recommend these nachos.

We also tried the BBQ tofu nuggets. These were really tasty as well. They were a little bit spicy and it was a dry BBQ and I think the tofu might have been frozen first. I am not really sure as I don’t particularly like pre-frozen tofu as it makes it like a sponge….but this was meatier than normal tofu, but not like a sponge so I am not sure how they prepared it. Whatever they did it worked and was amazing.

Overall – I loved Perch. It was a tiny place in an odd location (not much around it but warehouses), but the food was amazing. I wish we would have had time to go back and try some of the vegan pizzas and sandwiches. Or just hang out with a drink and some nachos…Maybe next time.
