The Catnip Diaries - Three Carrots
Posted on 06 / 09 / 2015
Cat Hair Day loves to go out on dates. Being vegan makes it a challenge to find restaurants with options beyond a side salad or chips and salsa, but that’s part of the fun – finding vegan-friendly places to eat in Indy. And trust us, we don’t starve! We knew right away when we decided to start reviewing restaurants that Three Carrots would be at the top of the list!
If we could justify eating at Three Carrots every day for the rest of our nine lives, we would. Seriously, it is that good! I (Amy) am pretty sure that Nat probably goes there for lunch several times a week and just doesn’t tell me, cause he knows that I would be super jealous. Three Carrots is the kind of place where you can feel confident trying something new, knowing that no matter what you order, it will be delicious. Oh, and did we mention that the menu is 100% VEGAN?
Three Carrots offers food that is satisfying for vegans and non-vegans alike. They don’t just create vegan versions of traditionally non-vegan food; they go way further, creating dishes that are so unique and tasty that they rival their non-vegan counterparts. I told Nat on this particular trip to Three Carrots that if I had a non-veg friend or family member that I wanted to introduce to vegan food that I would take them to Three Carrots, every time.
Their menu options include breakfast foods such as biscuits & gravy and seitan & waffles, and lunch and dinner items, such as seitan wings, a chickpea salad sandwich, a seitan-derloin, a buffalo wrap, seitan gyro, grilled tofu salad, and a seitan BLT (just to name a few)! Some of the dishes they offer are rotating specials that aren’t offered daily, so depending on when you stop in, you might be surprised to find a new option every time you visit – making your decision on what to order even more difficult! No reason to stress about it too much though, we have yet to try something there that hasn’t exceeded our expectations. You really can’t go wrong regardless of what you order!
