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! VegCharlotte has tried and tasted these new items – including a vegan chicken sandwich – and has the inside scoop. Let’s just say, we’ll never eat at Subway again.
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.
It’s been exciting to watch the evolution of Fern, Flavors from the Garden! Fern has new-ish management (Susan Walley), a new Executive Chef (Matt Martin), and a new seasonal menu coming October 2nd!
Bombay Grille Cuisine of India is a delightful surprise for vegetarians and especially vegans. It has a large selection of vegetarian entrees and appetizers (many of which are vegan) and waiters that know exactly how the food is prepared.
At first glance, 1900 Mexican Grill seems to be trying to appeal to their veggie customers. Unfortunately, this restaurant doesn’t have a clue.
Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe (located in a former dry cleaners on Central Avenue in Charlotte, NC) is one of those bright, funky, Southern-style, breakfast-all-day places, similar to The Flying Biscuit or Tupelo Honey. Similar, but not the same. Zada Janes has far, far more vegetarian and vegan offerings than the Charlotte Tupelo Honey. In fact,… Read More ›
Tupelo Honey is a rock star of a restaurant, one of those that inspires a cult following. The original is located in Asheville (vegan and vegetarian capital of North Carolina) and offers “Nuveau Southern cuisine.” (Their misspelling, not mine.) Tupelo Honey has seven locations in North Carolina and Tennessee, two cookbooks, and a huge reputation… Read More ›
Sometimes, somewhere, some place when I least expect it … I have an unexpectedly wonderful vegan dining experience! Most recently that happened at the Treetops Cafe at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton – Charlotte Airport. I was taking a two-day financial seminar at the hotel. The first day of the seminar was gray, cold, and… Read More ›
