Are Reubens Irish? – Plus, The Best Vegan Reubens In Charlotte

(0)
March 17, 2022

Are Reubens Irish? Well, No and Yes. Reubens did not originate in Ireland. Reubens are an American invention, created either by a hotel in Nebraska or a Jewish deli in New York. Wherever they were created, they soon became a staple at Jewish delis in New York, despite not being kosher. Irish immigrants settled in… Read More ›

Go Vegan Philly – Wilmington, DE

When I go to a restaurant these days, I’m a lot pickier than I used to be. I want an experience. A vibe. Generic, cookie-cutter crunchy vegan places don’t work for me anymore. I want an interesting and diverse menu. Dishes I wouldn’t normally make at home. I want GOOD food. Delicious would be even… Read More ›

The Sandwiches at Plant Joy – Charlotte, NC

Recently, the all-vegan and very playful Plant Joy celebrated a major milestone – turning ONE!

Pepperbox Doughnuts – Charlotte, NC

You Can’t Buy Happiness, But You Can Buy Doughnuts, And That’s Kind Of The Same Thing … I am a bit of a doughnut expert. Like many of you, I didn’t grow up vegan. My family was not the wealthiest of families, so my parents learned a few tricks to stretch the money we did… Read More ›

“There Will ALWAYS Be Vegan Chicken Salad at Common Market Plaza Midwood”

The Common Market at Plaza Midwood is a Charlotte landmark that’s hard to describe. It’s a convenience store. It’s a deli. It’s a bar. It’s a neighborhood hangout. It’s a place to sit and listen to local bands. It’s dog friendly – pooches are allowed on the patio. And, right from its beginnings almost 20… Read More ›

Breakfast At Gnome Cafe – Charleston, SC

We were fleeing Florida, driving through Charleston on our way back to Charlotte. Why were we fleeing Florida? Because there’s lots of stuff for us “hoomans” to do in Florida. Disney World. Universal. A moonlight gambling cruise. (My traveling companion cleaned up at the craps table, and I made a $4.00 profit on the slots!… Read More ›

Charlie Was A Sinner – Philadelphia, PA

OK, kids, if you go to Philly … You HAVE to check out Charlie Was A Sinner. To be honest, it was the name that drew us in. How could we NOT go there? Especially after standing in line for hours in cold, drizzly October rain waiting to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall,… Read More ›

Nawab Indian Cuisine – Williamsburg, VA

Nawab Indian Cuisine joins a growing trend of restaurants – those that value their vegan customers as seriously as they do their omni ones! Located in a strip mall shopping center in Willaimsburg, VA, Nawab is pretty much what you’d expect from a nicer North Indian restaurant. White cloth tablecloths. Glass goblets for water that… Read More ›

Restaurant Review – Jasmine Grill

South Boulevard is an interesting area of Charlotte. It’s not bright, shiny, and new like Ballantyne. It’s not posh like SouthPark. It’s not cool and hip like Plaza Midwood. South Boulevard is one of the older parts of Charlotte, with aging strip malls and shopping plazas that have seen better days. It’s got a strong… Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Winter Menu at Queen City Grounds

Queen City Grounds – 644 North Church Street Queen City Grounds is the coolest place I’ve found (yet) in Uptown Charlotte. I know, that sounds like damning with faint praise. Because Uptown Charlotte is not known for being “cool.” Its “coolness” is largely nonexistent. Manufactured and fabricated by middle aged white men in business suits…. Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Fajitas at Duckworth’s

My office often goes to Duckworth’s for big group gatherings. Several reasons: It’s within walking distance of our office. It’s one of the few places on “that side” of Uptown that can accommodate larger groups – farewell parties, team luncheons. There are several large tables and roomy booths, plus two very long tables in the… Read More ›

A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Vada Pav at Marathi Masala

Red food trucks in Uptown Charlotte always fill me with joy! Because I know that means Zizi’s Awesome Vegan To Go – awesome and all vegan.

A Vegan’s Adventures In Uptown Charlotte – Fuel Pizza and Soho Bistro

Fuel Pizza – 214 N. Tryon Street (Hearst Tower) Soho Bistro – 214 N. Tryon Street (Hearst Tower) It was lunchtime and I was again pounding the streets of Uptown Charlotte. From somewhere behind me, I heard the faint cry of a coworker. “Catherine! Wait up! Wait up!” Usually, when a coworker does that, I… Read More ›

Zizi’s Awesome Vegan2Go Food Truck – Popping Up Multiple Places Where does time go?

Imagine Vegan Cafe – Memphis, TN

Imagine Vegan Cafe in Memphis, TN. The place to go when you’re craving frozen vegan food from the grocery store and abominable service. OK, to be fair I don’t know what the vegan scene is in Memphis. Maybe Gardein, Tofurky, Yves etc. are not as readily available in Memphis as they are in Charlotte. Maybe… Read More ›
