Restaurant Review: Be Our Guest (Walt Disney World)

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 ›

Senor Veggie Beet Burger

Senor Veggie – San Antonio, TX

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.

Fern Shepherds Pie

Vegan Thanksgiving Options in Charlotte, Part III: Fern, Flavors From The Garden

Things turned quite chilly overnight in Charlotte, NC! When I arose this morning it was only 24! Sadly, when taking my dog for his morning walk I noticed many leaves have fallen and there are far fewer trees cloaked in beautiful reds and golds. It’s a good morning to tell you about the cozy comfort… Read More ›

Zada Janes Corner Cafe Charlotte NC

Zada Jane’s Corner Cafe

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 ›

Restaurant Review: Maharani Indian Cuisine

Maharani is, without question, my favorite Indian restaurant in Charlotte. I admit I’m prejudiced. Maharani is where I had my first date with my partner … on September 21, 2009. And, Maharani was my re-introduction to Indian food.  Charlotte, until recently, was not very diverse.  Growing up, there was only one Indian restaurant in Charlotte,… Read More ›

Restaurant Review – Thai Orchid

Thai Orchid is one of SouthPark’s oldest and best-kept secrets.  It’s been around nearly 20 years by my reckoning, in an area that’s NOT known for vegan-friendly OR ethnic food. It’s a bit hard to find, being tucked away in the Strawberry Hills Shopping Center at Providence and Sardis.  Signage is subtle.  If you park… Read More ›

FIRST ANNUAL VEGCHARLOTTE AWARDS!

This is inspired by my fellow blogger TrueIndigo’s Pennsyltucky Veggie Awards (check out her blog Bacon Is Not An Herb). Charlotte has come a long way in the past few years.  Occasionally food critics will write “best of vegetarian/vegan” reviews … trouble is, most of the critics are NOT vegan!  How can I take a critic’s… Read More ›
