4 N. Lumina Avenue
Wrightsville Beach, NC 28480
Atmosphere: I decided to use my Labor Day weekend to check out Wrightsville Beach, a little beach town next to Wilmington, North Carolina. This spot seemed to be the place to be… It featured a huge bar lined with a million different hot sauces with a friendly beach bum vibe. The menu had several vegan options including a veggie bowl salad, fresh Guac, and tofu burritos.
Food: Well, I’m never the girl that turns down guacamole, so I got a large order for $7.95. It was super smooth, and had very subtle onion/cilantro flavor… It pretty much tasted like straight avocado (no complaints here!). I tend to like my guacamole on the chunkier side with big pieces of onions and tomatoes, but I liked this! It was light and delicious with the salty, house-made tortilla chips.
Next up, after a heated internal debate between the veggie bowl salad and tofu burrito, I finally decided on the burrito ($10). I was expecting a Chipotle clone, with seasoned tofu crumbles, rice, beans, and a mountain of guacamole on top. What I got actually surprised me. A foot long burrito filled with lightly seasoned strips of tofu, black beans, rice and veggies was a pleasant surprise. It was light, fresh, flavorful, and pretty damn good. And I didn’t feel like I ate an entire village or felt compelled to contemplate the meaning of life after I finished it, like I do every time I eat Chipotle.
Dig it or Ditch It?
Dig it! The laid back attitude, friendly service, and delicious, fresh ingredients makes this place an awesome vacation spot. Next time I visit, I’ll get some food to go for a picnic on the beach. Try this place out, and get a few margaritas for me!
