If Vedge is the class valedictorian that never steps out of line, V Street is its little sister who stays out past curfew and still somehow still gets an A on their test the next day. It’s mostly a bar with small street food plates, and everything on the menu is under $15, but it’s all so good that you’ll forget you only originally came here to please your vegan friend with five different food allergies. Some of our favorite things are the miso butter noodles with nori, pickled ginger, and gochugaru, and the trumpet mushroom shawarma, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
