Tragedy Strikes: Two Chefs Quit Bender’s

Tusks at Bender's

We regret to inform readers that we have recently learned that the two main cooks at Bender’s Bar & Grill have moved on.  After I stopped crying into my PBR, I tried every piece of fried and tacoed seitan on the menu from the new cook, Justin.  Here is the breakdown:

  1. The beer-battered seitan is still the best dish you can order anywhere in the Mission.**
  2. The tacos are still delicious but not nearly as gluttonous.
  3. The Buffalo girls sauce recipe seems to have changed (or, at least, it tasted different).  The panel of drunks feasting on the girls were pretty mixed on the new product.

** Only maybe an exaggeration.  Let’s face it, everything tastes better with Jameson and PBR.

Vegan Update: Buffalo Trannies R.I.P.

Buffalo Trannies RIP

Yesterday I sacrificed all my vegan street cred and opted to get my seitan fix at Weird Fish instead of Bender’s.  Turns out they do not sell Buffalo Trannies anymore.  WHAT GIVES?  They didn’t even have a 6’8″ guy puking in the bathroom covered in empty PBR cans.  Bender’s is still king.

Speaking of Bender’s, I really like the idea of stuffing my face with some fried yo-yos right now.
