Vegan cheese for pizzas!

Posted on 12 / 07 / 2011

Although not the most amazing pizza in the world, they do have vegan (Diaya) cheese for their pizzas and fake meats. And they don't charge extra for these options. Awesome! They have good cocktails (a bit expensive though) and their hummus is delicious. I love the atmosphere and the staff is always helpful and nice. Overall I really like this place!

Pros: Vegan pizza, Cool atmosphere

Great vegan pizza options, great atmosphere

The Boiler Room is a very cool restaurant that is wholly solar powered, cleverly decorated (cargo straps for seats, subway theme in the bathroom), with a relaxing atmosphere. Even if they didn't offer vegan pizza I'd still want to come hang out here for a while.

They offer pizza by the slice, but you have to order and entire pizza for the vegan option - that means you're in for a huge pizza, like six-piece NY style big. No worries though, they have all kinds of toppings to add to that large pizza such as Daiya vegan cheese, Uptons mock meats (sausage, pepperoni, bacon, crumbles), and good ol' veggies. I decided to get slightly creative and ordered a pizza with potatoes, garlic, Daiya cheese, and sausage. I admit that the slices were so big that I couldn't really make it past 1.5 slices, it was rough! But overall the pizza was very tasty and something I'd go back for, several times!
