Tonight I Dined: Biscuits and Groovy

I was excited to visit the Biscuits and Groovy food truck for a late breakfast this past weekend in Austin. Every item on the menu of loaded biscuits can be vegan-ized, and ya girl loves a biscuit (see my recipe for homemade biscuits and gravy here).

The food truck is in a permanent location and has a few wooden tables under an awning (seating is very limited when there's a crowd). I ordered and was told there would be a 30 minute wait because there were quite a few people already with orders in. No problem for me, although if you want a coffee or have to go to the bathroom you have to go around the block to the coffeeshop. I ordered the M.C. Hammer which is a biscuit topped with white gravy, vegan sausage, tofu scramble, vegan cheeze shreds and green onions. At a price of $4 it can't be beat for a filling breakfast. 

First and foremost the biscuit was heavenly. It was flaky and buttery and oh so rich. Everything else was unfortunately...lackluster. Every component was lukewarm. The menu boasts that everything is cooked to order, but maybe they keep their vegan versions on the side and just assemble when the order is called. I don't know if this is correct, but it would have been warm if it was just cooked (and my bf's non-vegan meal was hot). The gravy was too sweet and gelatinous. I love gravy, but this was not appealing. The sausage seemed to be homemade and had bits of rice and what I think were legumes. It had a great fennel taste but it was dry as a bone. The tofu was a standard scramble but underseasoned. Sheesh.

I'm hoping this was an off day for the truck, but for me, I won't be going there again.
