Hello & Happy Monday!!

 

 

 

When we think about Las Vegas, we tend to think of gambling, online casinos, showgirls … and vegan food?!

 

 

Yesssssssss.

 

 

That’s right, the party capital of the world has so many delicious, plant-based options that you can let your hair down without letting your compassion go. Since I’m heading to vegas I compiled a list of the best spots to satisfy your taste buds between hitting the casino and the Cirque du Soleil “O” show. (my favorite)

8560 West Desert Inn Road Las Vegas, NV. 89117

 

The colorful décor inside Violette’s Vegan will brighten your day almost as much as the restaurant’s savory food. Catch an NFL game at the bar and nosh on some seitan wings or make it your weekend brunch spot.

 

Must try: Sunrise Superman

1 S Main St, Las Vegas, NV 89101

 

If you’re staying downtown and have a pizza craving, look no further than Pop Up Pizza. It’s located in the beautiful Plaza Hotel, but you can get it delivered if you’re staying in the area.


Pop Up’s signature vegan pizza, The Soho, is piled high with vegan cheese goodness and lots of artichokes and available by the slice in the casino. If artichokes aren’t your thing, you can modify

 

Vegan mozzarella, spinach, mushrooms, artichoke, and roasted bell Peppers, the Soho is the perfect plant-based pie. Be sure to finish off your pizza feast with Pop Up’s vegan soft serve.

3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
As one of the most vegan-friendly places in Vegas, the Wynn offers delicious plant-based options everywhere you turn. All of its 18 restaurants feature vegan options, and the menus were created by renowned vegan chef Tal Ronnen.

 

At the Wynn’s Society Café, you can enjoy a tofu-based Florentine Benedict for breakfast or a hearty vegan pasta for dinner. Our personal favorite? Grab a mouthwatering veggie burger and French fries, and wash it down with a vegan milkshake.

 

Must try: Wynn “Burger” With Cheese
Menu description: “Gardein™ burger patty, American ‘cheese,’ ketchup, yellow mustard, pickles, onion, fries, chocolate shake”

 

Looking for breakfast? Try the Vegan French Toast with almond milk batter, caramelized bananas, and Vermont maple syrup:

Veggie House
5115 Spring Mountain Road, #203, Las Vegas

 

The menu at Veggie House doesn’t sound vegetarian, but it is. Feast on beef, chicken, pork, fowl or fish that no animals had to die to create.

 

The “meats” are made from gluten or soy. Try spicy veggie gluten kidney ($6.50), bean sprouts with veggie ham ($8.50) or Kung Pao squid ($10.95). The house specialty is Chef Kenny’s Spicy Crispy Beef ($10.95).

 

Wash down dinner with a sweet treat. Vegan mango ice cream with sticky rice was a recent dessert special.

 

Veggie House looks like a typical Chinese restaurant, with a little quirk. Fake birds adorn decorative branches and chirp to background music. The front door lists the restaurant’s hours as 11:28 a.m. to 9:33 p.m.

 

 

 

 

 

Sunrise Coffee
3130 E. Sunset Road, Las Vegas

 

1445027122202

This coffee house offers more than just coffee, although there’s plenty of that, too. Diners hungry for breakfast, lunch or a pastry can choose from an array of goodies. There’s the signature Alien Burrito that includes couscous, vegetarian beans, hummus, spinach, tomato, avocado and red peppers wrapped in a spinach tortilla. 

 

 

For lunch, try the chili with soy chorizo or the Tofurky ‘Wich, made with fake turkey, hummus, red peppers and avocado. Add veganaise, a nondairy, egg-free mayonnaise, for an extra kick. Most meals cost $5.99.

 

 

Wash it all down with a vegan coconut eggnog or coffee with your choice of soy, rice or almond milk. People in a hurry can grab their eats from a drive-thru window. From 5 to 8 p.m., pastries cost $1.

2381 E. Windmill Lane, #18, Las Vegas, or 2910 Lake East Drive, Las Vegas

 

Nothing in this restaurant is cooked. Go Raw Café features organic, live, vegan cuisine. The “cheeseburger” ($10.88) is actually a mélange of raw beets, carrots, sunflower seeds and parsley, served on living bread with tomato, lettuce, sprouts, avocado, homemade ketchup and almond “cheese.”

 

The Very Veggie Sushi ($12.88) is filled with almond cheese, sprouts, carrots, avocado, tomato, cucumber, enoki mushrooms, yam rice, garlic and ginger.

 

The restaurant is nothing fancy — it looks more like a health-food store than a sit-down eatery — but the food is among the pricier vegan options in the valley.
