Carrying the weight of being a “hipster” is an awkward burden to bear. Technically speaking, you’re a part of a subculture that shuns mainstream ideologies of what is “cool” and “appropriate,” but being hipster is so cool and so many people want to emulate it, that it is really a mainstream culture, too, in the end.
But whether you think that hipster ways of life are for or against “the man,” there are staples in this subculture that are easily identified as “hipster,” and food has not escaped this classification. To help you achieve ultra hipsterness (or to avoid it), here are six super hipster dishes you should know.
Now if you can manage to nix the pork and replace it with tofu, you’ll have an even more super-trendy sandwich.
