Easiest way to eat vegan in the food court! - Edit

As Beefsteak allows you to choose from a variety of steamed vegetables, and helps you discern which dressing/sauces are vegan/veggie or not, I consider this one of the safest food court options for vegans on the go. The veggies are fresh, the sauces are pretty good (they could use some more vegan sauces/dressings), and the drinks are fun.

Pros: Fresh, Accessible, Easy to discern what is vegan

Cons: Need more vegan sauces/dressing

Vegan by default - Edit

Walking around the mall, you see the many choices in the food court and think: ewww or yawn. What to do? Beefsteak is a good choice because it has fresh veggies that you pick and have added to your crisp cool salad or warm veggie/grain bowl. It's nice.

Almost all the veggies can be chosen, and there are sauces like black bean, tomato and cilantro. There are dressings too like sherry vinegar and soy ginger. Feel free to add on rice or quinoa if you want grains. Avocado is extra, because when does an eatery not charge more for fresh avocado?

Anyhow, finish off with some crisp or fresh garnishes like toasted sesame seeds, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, cherry tomatoes, scallions and toasted seaweed.

Pretty decent choices here! All items you expect to be non-vegan are non-vegan (cheese, meat, yogurt, honey) except these ones you wouldn't know are non-vegan, but they are: seaweed salad, cucumber salad and kimchi. Stay away from those if you're vegan. Mostly everything is gluten-free.

They have some nice juices to choose from, too. Go small (pre-bottled), or get your own from the dispensers.

Pros: Vegan first, Almost all gluten free , Veggies included in price (except avocado)

Cons: More dressings needed
