Tattooed Mom at 5th and South Street is a place I have long been curious about, but somehow had no idea that I could get food and drinks at...well I discovered this when I walked in with my friend. It was a Wednesday and luckily there was a special on burgers! Three dollars for a regular burger or in my case, for a vegan burger. What a deal! It's the coolest when you walk in and are surrounded by these teal-colored walls and crazy different decorations.
We weren't sure what to put on our burgers, but the server made it simple by giving us an order sheet where we could check off exactly what we wanted on our burger and see how much the extra I would be charged for certain things. I went for a vegan burger with Veganaise, lettuce, tomato, fried onion, mushrooms and of course I would do the honors of topping it off with spicy mustard, ketchup and hot sauce once it got to the table. The server brought out a basket filled with these condiments and toppings- it was incredible! The burger patty was filled with bits of veggies and that made it feel like a true veggie burger. I really liked how different the service was and the food fit the creative atmosphere that takes you in once you walk in the door.
There are so many other specials listed for other days during the week like Thursday night 50 cent perogies- delicious! The food specials are fantastic and the regular food menu includes tons of vegan items like the vegan steak sandwich, falafel with tahini and various apps and sides. I will certainly be returning to Tattooed Mom's maybe even next Wednesday for my three dollar burger or maybe I'll try the perogies?...I'm getting hungry already!
