    Customized Menu

    The menu consisted of fully vegan offerings appropriate to their digestive system – peanut puree, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, acorns, and a variety of different nut butters. Specifically, the squirrels can choose from several vegan options, including the 'Trashsquirrel Burrito," (organic peanut puree with sunflower and pumpkin seed granola,) the "Vegan Tacos Bellota," (toasted acorn and almond butter,) and the "CBD Bandito Quesadilla," (cashew butter and dates.)

    Tripod - MESTON 62

    When asked why squirrels and not...pigeons, for example, Sara Woo, the co-owner of the place, told Food & Wine: "Our squirrely friends love our compost as much as we do, they keep us company on our patio all season, and they make up a big portion of the campus population, so we simply cannot ignore! And turns out, squirrels also love to eat and drink local, so Girls is a great fit. We are all about local, and we're happy to accommodate today's squirrel dietary concerns. Vegan, veg, low-carb acorn only, gluten free ... You name it, we gotchu!"
