Vegans: Easy to find food here

Posted on 07 / 16 / 2014

Just interested in some vegan food but have some non-vegan people with you who insist that vegan restaurants are not their cups of tea? Have no fear, you can bring them here, and you'll be happy, and they'll be happy. Convince them later that vegan restaurants are amazing.

Anything vegan here is marked with a "hat" or raised arrow like the French circonflexe accent.

Anyhow, when you order a salad, how nice that it's marked vegan without the cheese. That means you know the dressing is vegan and that they've thought about it. Really, though, do you want a salad? Maybe, but if you come here, go for their signature Compassionate Vegan Momos. What's this, you ask? Think of a dumpling, and, then add in more spices for Himalayan/ Nepalese flair, and you have a Momo. They are fun to order and tasty choices that don't feel heavy or fake -some vegan dumplings are all fake meat, but not these. I like the veggie additions that make a delightful blend.

When the weather is cold, who doesn't want some hot noodle soup? You will be happy to come here and order a steaming bowl, and it is labeled "vegan." Such satisfaction and comfort ensues from this listing, but from the rich flavor of the broth and the beauteous addition of greens. If it's not as cold, you can order the sautéed noodles or a curry dish.

Really though… I like to order tater tots with everything, because, why not?

This place makes me very happy in the chill vibe - you can catch some music on the weekends - and the late opening for some good vegan food. They also have vegan naan, which if you don't know, naan is usually not vegan. Awesome they have it here, and fun to have a cilantro-naan bread tofu sandwich (with tater tots!).

True, it's not an all vegan restaurant, but the clear effort here should be supported whole-heartily. They even have a vegan dessert option that isn't just sorbet or fruit, it's fried battered apples with sauce. Whatever your mood, you will have something here. I love the eclectic mix!

Pros: Vegan items clearly marked, Vegan momos, Vegan noodle soup
