A while back when driving from Chicago to New Orleans I stopped by Belewa's Vegan Gourmet for lunch. While it isn't exactly what I think of when I think 'gourmet', it is a fantastic place to get a bite to eat. I met Belewa and he was very friendly and outgoing. It seems he often takes the time to talk to people visiting his restaurant. He asked me how I found out about him and I told him Happy Cow. He asked me not to write a review if I didn't have anything good to say. No worries there, Belewa!
The food is really good and incredibly affordable. I seem to recall all of the dishes being between about 4 dollars and 8 dollars. I had the live burger and my friend and I shared the chili quinoa. Both were very good, very healthy, and as I already mentioned, shockingly affordable. (Where else do you find raw food so inexpensive?)
Before we left, we grabbed a couple vegan almond vanilla cupcakes. We didn't eat them until an hour or two later due to the fact we were so full after our lunch. Though we were several hundred miles south of Memphis by that point, we joked about turning around and going back for more. Absolutely amazing cupcakes.
In short, I really enjoyed my stop at Belewa's Vegan Gourmet and I highly recommend it for anyone.
great food, very inexpensive, healthy
