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 ›
We were on the road again, headed back to Charlotte after attending my friend KD’s vegan Hallowedding in Garner. The Red Roof Inn Plus (where we typically stay because of our furbabies) surprisingly provides a decent enough breakfast for vegans. There’s coffee, orange juice, apple juice, toast, packets of jams and jellies, plain instant grits,… Read More ›
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 ›
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.
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!
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 ›
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.
Hello, everyone! I was thrilled to be asked to be your tour guide for the day as part of the HappyCow Road Trip Blog Tour! Today I want to welcome everyone to Charlotte, North Carolina and take you on a visit to one of my favorite vegan restaurants – Luna’s Living Kitchen! Afterwards, I’ll briefly review… Read More ›
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 ›
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 ›
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 ›
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 ›
