(US/md/va) Vegan milkshakes and quinoa pancakes … at a diner?
- With its Amish-egg omelets, wasabi salmon sliders and antibiotic-free Angus
burgers, Silver Diner has never quite fallen into the same category of
diner as, say, the Waffle House or IHOP. Now, the chain is doubling down on
nutritionally conscious dining, carving out a significant amount of menu
space for gluten-free and vegan diners. See the new menu here.
The vaguely vintage diners started serving nine new vegan dishes over the
weekend, from a warm roasted local vegetable salad to black bean hummus to
a vegan milkshake made with soy ice cream. A smaller number of gluten-free
additions are also available, including quinoa coconut pancakes, French
toast crusted in coconut and the option of subbing in gluten-free bread for
sandwiches. Many of the vegan dishes also fall in the gluten-free category.
The changes to the menu have made approximately 10 percent of the menu
vegan, says Ype Von Hengst, executive chef for the chain, which has 14
free-standing locations in Maryland and Virginia.
