Disney is a bit overly fond of using the word “magical.” But in the case of Be Our Guest, the word magical truly applies. Be Our Guest is one of Walt Disney World’s most popular restaurants (second only to breakfast at Cinderella’s Castle). The wait list is legendary – you need to book your reservation… Read More ›
Is Walt Disney World vegan friendly? The answer, as I found out on my recent visit to Walt Disney World – Orlando, FL, is … It’s complicated. There is certainly vegan food to eat, but your choices are limited. However, that’s not as bad as it sounds, because EVERYONE’S choices are somewhat limited. To deal… Read More ›
I was excited to try Conscious Cravings in Austin, TX. It’s always fun to try vegan eateries on the road, experience the different concepts and cooking styles, taste the local flavors, find inspiration. Yelp was full of positive, glowing reviews – although admittedly Yelp is notorious for deleting any reviews that are less than positive…. Read More ›
San Antonio, TX is a city of surprises – from the disappointing (the Alamo is a gigantic souvenir shop!) – to the sublime, such as gorgeous old churches and the lush green beauty of the flowering shrubs, waterfalls, and koi ponds of the Japanese Tea Garden. Senor Veggie, an all-vegan restaurant located at 620 S. Presa Street, definitely falls into the sublime category. It is without a doubt one of the very best veg restaurants I’ve ever been to, and quite possibly has the world’s best veggie burger.
Zoe’s Kitchen is another rapidly expanding fast-casual restaurant that takes its vegan customers seriously. Drawing on culinary influences from the 21-country Mediterranean region, Zoe’s offer vegans flavorful new options.
Which Wich is a rapidly expanding, veg-friendly chain that is adding new vegan items to their menu this fall. Charlotte, NC is one of their four test markets!

In Charlotte, NC it’s becoming possible to find good vegan food just about anywhere – including hypnotist shows at The Comedy Zone. Here’s what a vegan needs to know.
NOTE: This review was written several years ago, about the Chuy’s SouthPark location. That location has since relocated to 7314 Waverly Walk Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28277. (Among other things, parking was considered to be a major issue at the SouthPark location and one of the reasons for the move.) The menu, however, appears identical, although prices… Read More ›
Charlotte, NC is fortunate enough to have nearly a dozen Thai restaurants – most of which are good, and a few of which are excellent. Thai House, a family run business which has been around more than 20 years, is one of the excellent ones.
Myrtle Beach, SC can be a bit tricky for a vegan going on vacation. But vegan food can be found! Here is my list of vegan dining options we discovered during our recent trip to Myrtle Beach.
If you are vegan or vegetarian, you can’t say you’ve been to Myrtle Beach until you’ve been to Bay Naturals!
Several weeks ago, my partner and I tried Chipotle’s new vegan tofu offering, Sofritas, for the first time. I have to say, we were impressed. So impressed, in fact, that Sunday night my partner and I decided to have Sofritas again. We invited his vegetarian-all-her-life sister to accompany us. I ordered the same Sofritas bowl… Read More ›
Rarely does a new menu item at a fast-casual restaurant incite so much passion, controversy, adoration, and debate as Chipotle’s new Sofritas. I and 11 other members of VegCharlotte visited a local Chipotle in Charlotte, NC to taste the sofritas for ourselves.
Pros: Great atmosphere and service. Cons: Not a lot of options for vegans and vegetarians. However, we don’t always get to choose where we eat, and if you find yourself at Leroy’s you do have some options.
