India Oven
We visited this Indian Restaurant in Mesa, AZ on Dec 1, 2017 for the first time, It’s a nice place, with a dinner buffet. There are clearly marked portions of the buffet for Vegan options.
The food all tasted great, they had many Vegan options, but also some meat. They bring fresh made breads to the table as you eat. There was chai tea & mango juice as well as some sweets. Friendly staff. They were open late 10pm

Vegan House
Stopped by this Arizona Vegan Restaurant for the first time on Nov 30, 2017 and tried these dumplings? Most of the items on the menu are fake meat, so I went with a non-fake-meat option. that were good. I could have used more rice Parking could be an issue too, its downtown

The Loaded Bowl
We visited this Vegan Restaurant for the first time on Oct 3, 2017
Bought Lunch & Dinner at the Loaded Bowl in Oklahoma City, OK

Cashew Cheese & Macaroni with fake-meat BBQ
And veggie nachos
The nachos were very good, ill order those again (and we will be back in OKC)

More pictures

The other, well i should have read the menu better, i saw cashew nut cheese & macaroni and not the BBQ part… i hate BBQ and i dont like fake-meat at all, any flavor, so there was no way i was gonna like half this meal
I ate it, and this was prob made well. But, just not my taste

The deserts… got a huge rice crispy thing with chocolate on top, took three days to eat

Well, they had a few day old things marked down, so that always catches my attention. .. i grabbed a strawberry & black pepper (yes black pepper) scone. .. it was awesome !!! Try new things, this was great, dry, sweet scone, with strawberry flavor and a warm black pepper after flavor, wow.. i would have never known that could be a thing, very good, try it

Glad to have a vegan option when we are in town for the museum or passing through to Tulsa

Veggie Express – Frisco, TX

Veggie Express – Frisco, TX
Checked out this Vegan Restaurant for the first time on Sep 28, 2017 while passing through Dallas Area. This was one of the few Vegan options open at 7pm in east Dallas. Most of their menu is meat substitute, which I am NO fan of.

I tried a Broccoli dish, and it was VERY good, filling and flavorful

I’d like some to-go sauce options !!

I would go back even though most of the menu is fake meat and doesn’t appeal to me, the stuff I would try will be good I bet

100% Vegan !!! Super cool

Tacos 4 Life Grill
We visited this Mexican Restaurant called Tacos 4 Life Grill in Conway, AR on Sep 26, 2017 while passing through town

Found the restaurant on Happy Cow App and it has some veg options on their menu

They made my Veg items on separate pans, but same prep are, still very cool to think about separating the cooking

My review on Happy Cow is here

Friendly crew, food was good, portions were not large, I would go back

#TofuTaco @ Tacos 4 Life in Conway, Arkansas I found them on @HappyCow (which is way better than stupid google) They have a few Veg options, mostly tofu.. i saw teviews of a chickpea option, but I didnt see it on the menu 🙁 The Tofu Taco i had was OK, hard to eat with so many cubed ingredients (im used to shreded i guess) but it had some flavor, i am from Arizona, I can only assume "flavor" here is a bit less spicy than I'm accustomed to You can watch them prepare the food. She sliced the avacado fresh, and half went on my taco !! The vibe was upbeat, and the employees seemed happy to be at work They cooked my Tofu on a seperate pan from where they cook the meats !!! Id go back and try more of the menu @Tacos4LifeGrill #ArkansasRestaurant #WhatDoYouEatThen #GunShowLoopholeTour

Imagine Vegan Cafe – Memphis, TN

Imagine Vegan Cafe
I visited this Vegan Restaurant for the first time on Sep 24, 2017. I was passing through Memphis, and used the Happy Cow App on my phone to locate an open Veg Restaurant. This one was open, and I saw some of the poor reviews, but tried it anyway.

Parking could be an issue, but I found a spot, prices weren’t low, but the food was good, and the  dessert cookie took me days to eat
Homey eatery featuring vegan entrees, sandwiches, salads & desserts, plus brunch & a kids’ menu.

eden – a vegan cafe – Scranton, PA

eden – a vegan cafe
I attempted to visit this Vegan Restaurant in Scranton, PA on Sept 26, 2017 while some street festival was going on. After finding eden’s location among the city one way streets, and parking a few blocks away, we found an 8.5″x11″ paper with sharpie saying “close for street fair”
Needless to say we did not eat there, and I doubt I’ll go back based on difficult parking and the alternative Indian Food Veg Restaurant just a few miles away

The internet says this is a Warm & cozy cafe with sidewalk tables offering an all-vegan menu with creative sandwiches & salads.

TTT again !! 

Three of us visited the TTT again the other night

Such a great place, large servings, and delicious 

Omar’s Favorite .. a LOT of food for $12

Fried chicken

Roast beef sandwich 

Baja Cafe 

We visited the Baja Cafe for the first time today a


We met up at 7 a.m. and the place was already full of customers always a good sign in my opinion

I started with coffee and then buttermilk pancake breakfast special on the front page of their menu


I got my pancake with chocolate chips this morning it was very good 



 we also tried the French toast and one of the daily specials


Overall a great experience and we will be back again. Although we probably won’t be in our regular rotation of breakfast spots because of its focus on pancakes and eggs benedict which aren’t top on our radar

Zayna Mediterranean – Tucson, AZ

Jumbo Falafel Sandwich – Today it was mostly wet, warm iceburg lettuce, and mushy falafel, nasty white / pink tomato …bleh

I waited for some guy to order 10 gyros, so it took a long time and was made quickly (carelessly?) so if I order there again, I’ll be sure they are not as busy
