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:
- The beer-battered seitan is still the best dish you can order anywhere in the Mission.**
- The tacos are still delicious but not nearly as gluttonous.
- 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.
