Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or just an adventurous foodie, Las Vegas has a surprising number of vegan options. Here are five of our favorites to check out while you’re in town!
Vegenation – Downtown LV
At Vegenation, you won’t have to worry about whether anything’s cooked in anything suspicious – everything here is 100% plant based (including meats, cheeses, and ice cream). They offer a variety of cuisines, from sushi to burgers to tacos to desserts, all vegan. Not only will your body thank you for the healthy food, but your soul can feel good too – Vegenation works with community gardens, school garden programs, freight farms, and small local businesses.
Veggie House – Chinatown
Even the non-veggies will love this Chinese restaurant that serves everything from kung pao “chicken” to “shrimp” chow fun. They also have lunch specials, sizzling plates, ramen, and Chef Kenny’s specials. We recommend the Spicy Veggie Crispy Beef.
SW Steakhouse – The Strip
We know what you’re thinking, but hear us out. If you’re a vegan in a group of carnivores looking for a place to go out on the town, SW Steakhouse is a great option. It’s on The Strip at the Wynn, and they have an entirely separate vegan/vegetarian menu on standby (ask your waiter). So while your friends are munching their steak, you can enjoy a delicious black truffle mushroom risotto or veggie meatballs.
Violette’s Vegan – West LV
This organic juice and smoothie bar also has fantastic food options, everything from breakfast scrambles to burritos to tempeh bacon to lemon scampi and meat-free burgers. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as desserts that are to die for, especially the milkshakes.
Nacho Daddy is another great place for all – the portions are huge, and you can indulge in tofu or “chicken” nachos, burritos, tacos, and more. They even have vegan queso! SO GOOD. (And, of course, there’s the usual salad and veggie bowls if you’re feeling healthy.)
