First Review by aniveg

love this place! - Edit

Excellent food and service! The owner and staff are super nice and very accommodating! I travel full time for a living and use my Happy Cow app to find vegan restaurants around the country. I only write reviews if I feel the service and food were excellent! My particular favorites were the “ comfort foods” - the best vegan Mac & cheese I’ve tasted and the best vegan brownie! The owner gave me a sample of the fried chicken that was made from jackfruit and it was fabulous!!

Stop Reading reviews and go HERE - Edit

Perfectly executed simple food. ALL ingredients are fresh and made in house. Even the flour. They grind chickpea into powder to hold some items together. They grow their own sprouts. Still need more? Alkaline water, vegan milkshakes that are BOMB, smoothie, soup. They are killing the game. Just go and find out. No review can do this place justice, go live it.

Pros: simple good food with only the best ingredients

Cons: only 1 location

Love love love! - Edit

This place is amazing! We had a mac n cheese appetizer, which was big enough to be an entree, and I swear you could serve it to a non-veg person and they wouldn't know the difference.

The falafel salad is a unique dish and very tasty and the Patty palm cakes were very good too. Servings were large and very filling.

The staff was super-friendly and the owner came out and talked with us too.

Has Become My Favorite Go To Place - Edit

The Green Curry was made for my soul. I don’t know how it happened but my life feels complete whenever I eat this dish. I just melt. I have tried other dishes and they are all amazing but I always gravitate back to the green curry. My wife Laurie loves the Pad Thai and asks to make it less sweet which always comes out to her delight thanks to the chef. She (the chef) is the owner whose nickname is Jay and who will modify any dish to satisfy. This is a small place with a small staff and all are in it to please! Because they are closed on Monday’s I sometimes get sad but realize that Jay is entitled to some time for contemplation and rest.

Pros: A wonderful go to place for either a quick or rela

Cons: Closed when I get a craving at 3AM😎

Must try - Edit

Saw a lot of good reviews so I had to try it for myself today. I got the falafel burger w/ rice, so good! Tastes homemade and super filling. It's a little pricey but hey a one time sacrifice is well worth it. You won't regret it.

Pros: Authentic taste

Cons: Pricey

a must visit - Edit

When my hubby and I lived in Boca Raton, we used to visit relatively often, as we lived so close. Recently we moved down south, and haven't been in the New Vegan since. We love this small and super friendly restaurant. More than delicious food prepared with love and you feel like home there because of the amazing staff. We even took our wedding guests after our wedding to New Vegan, because they kindly agreed to stay open just for us, in the time they are normally closed. We'll definitely visit again, when in the area. Great Job Patricia and RJ (the owners) and all the New Vegan team, you guys are such an inspiration. Thumbs up !!!

I had a blast - Edit

We were blessed to have our two vegan activist friends Kieth Berger and Elena from South Florida Vegan Education group treat us to this amazing gem! I had the portobello mushroom sandwich and it was amazing! It came with a delicious spicy rice and a cute little salad. My brother had the falafel salad and it was great too! we both shared half. The food was excellent, so flavorful and filling, the staff were super friendly and welcoming, and the sevrvice was great. It's two bad it's an hour away otherwise I'd go there all the time! I'm going all out next time and getting a smoothie, sides, and a dessert with my meal next time. I can't recommend this place enough!

Pros: Amazing food , Friendly atmosphere , Great staff

Cons: A bit pricey , Too far from home

The New Vegan - Edit

We drove from Miami to Delray Beach just to try The New Vegan and we were not disappointed. This is a very quaint restaurant with only a few tables. If you prefer, you may sit outside as there were a couple of tables next to the parking spots. There is parking available on the side of the establishment on the weekend (pay attention to the hours you can park there).

RJ and Trish are the owners and we were instantly treated as if we were part of the family. Trish answered all of our questions and guided us through their amazing menu options. The food was a symphony of amazing textures and colors and tastes. The desserts were awesome. We loved everything. The prices were on the higher end, but very much worth it.

We would visit again!

Small business with a lot of Heart and Soul! - Edit

Hidden in downtown Delray Beach, this restaurant is an excellent place to try if you're exploring a plant based diet, are committed to one, or are just looking for good food.
Had the sampler platter, falafel burger and carrot cake. Falafel burger was incredible! Curry rice is a staple, in fact they had a big order of it waiting for pickup by other fans. Carrot cake was surprisingly moist and rich. Don't know how they do it, but it gets done well.
Everyone there was friendly and informative. Patricia, one of the owners came out on her own just to chat and see how we liked everything. Great family.
A little bit pricey, but not overpriced. Still, worth the cost with such delicious flavors and health benefits included.

Pros: Excellent food, Great, friendly staff, Fresh ingredients

Cons: Not closer to my home!

Good but overpriced - Edit

There's nothing wrong with the taste of the food at this cute vegan eatery. It's creative and delicious. The problem is that the portions are too small for the price. We each had the plantain appetizer and the hearts of palm mock tuna sandwich on millet bread. The portion of the appetizer was so small that one could eat the entire dish in three bites. The millet bread was smaller than the averge slice of bread. That's all we ordered...no drinks. The bill came out to $50! With a $10 tip, we had a small, unsatisfying dinner and left unfilled. The owners are nice folks, but they're dropping the ball.

This is the best vegan restaurant we've ever visited, with the most creative menu imaginable. The mac and cheese is incredibly delicious, and the imitation tuna made from palm hearts is ingenious. Do not miss the carrot cake for dessert.

Couldn't be any better - Edit

We came here for breakfast and had to come back the same day for lunch we liked it so much. We were visiting from Chicago and read the great reviews. The New Vegan lived up to all the hype for sure! I had the vegan waffles and my wife had the vegan French toast. For lunch I had the sampler menu and my wife got the burger. I could eat here every day! Carrot cake was awesome and so was the chocolate cake! Great vegan milkshake. Enjoyed the zucchini bacon! Snapped a picture with the owners who could not be any nicer or more accommodating. Don't be fooled by the appearance of the restaurant from the outside...the inside is quite nice. We are coming back for sure if we ever visit the area again!

The New Vegan delightfully delicious - Edit

Found this jewel of a listing on Happy Cow while visiting Palm Beaches. Quaint, serene, clean, compact space in revitalized downtown Delray Beach. Convenient, easy to get to, with on street parking. The food is awesomely delicious, with very friendly, knowledgeable service.
My first time there, and with so many tasty looking and sounding dishes on the menu, I ordered portobello mushroom sandwich, as suggested by the staff person, Michelle. It comes with sides of a tasty salad, and well seasoned brown rice. She said it was one of their most popular items, and the taste tells why. Also ordered the Mac & Cheez, creamy, comforting, and oh so good. Moderate prices. Filling portions. Well worth the 30+ minutes drive from our resort, and on my radar for return trip when next in the area.

Pros: 100 vegan, Freshly, tastily prepared, Friendly, knowledgeable staff

Cons: On street parking, Very compact space

Probably the best vegan restaurant I've visited! - Edit

This is a little gem in the heart of Delray, down a side street. The owners are sweet and gracious. The menu is full of interesting vegan options, both raw and cooked. It all sounded so good, we really didn't know what to order! We saw the cauliflower bites that someone else had, so we order those. They are dehydrated (raw), and it was the first time my husband had ever eaten a raw dish, and he doesn't even like cauliflower, but we both enjoyed them. He had the ZLT and really raved over it. I asked the owner if she could make something for me without oil, and she said all her raw items are oil-free. But I really wanted a burger. She said there was no oil in her burgers themselves, but that she uses a tiny bit of oil on her George Foreman grill to keep them from sticking (I wanted to tell her that there are many great non-stick griddles, like Cuisinart, that won't stick at all. Maybe she'll look into that). Still, I was very pleased with my curried chick pea burger. She also steamed the rice for me. Everything was delicious! So many vegan places use too much oil and Earth balance in their food. They're just replicating the greasy SAD food that mainstream restaurants serve. This tastes fresh, healthy, and the flavoring is unique. There's a wide selection of salads, burgers, wraps, and appetizers. We didn't try dessert, but I'm betting those are amazing too. Definitely a place to go if you're in Delray Beach.

Pros: Fantastic Food, Reasonably priced, Attentive, personalized service

My Absolute Favorite - Edit

I cannot say enough great stuff about our experience here. My husband and I were in town for a few days and were delighted to find an abundance of great vegan choices in the area. We both really loved our meals. It was my favorite meal for the whole trip. I got the ZLT (Zuchini "bacon", Lettuce & tomato). It was outstanding!

Pros: Food was the best, Staff leaned over backwards to help

Cons: None that I can think of
