I was surprised to hear from a friend last week that The Judge's Bench in historic Ellicott City had vegan and vegetarian meals on their menu.
So another friend and I decided to check it out last Saturday. She got there before I did and called me to confirm that yes, there were in fact options for the both of us.
The choices? Between a spicy black bean burrito, an elaborate German sounding tofurkey dish, a housemade lentil burger and other plates, there weren't terribly too many meals to choose from -- maybe 5 or 6 at most. But it was enough to hit the spot. My friend and I both ordered sunshine burgers, packed with veggies and toppings of our choice.
While this was the first time that I've ever set foot in the bar/restaurant despite spending almost my entire life visiting Old Ellicott City, I definitely plan to go back. I'm not quite sure if there are other vegetarian options along "Main Street," but plan to look into it more. Stay tuned!
