Earls

Another of Earl’s awesome vegan options. Order the Chicken Hunan Kung Pao with tofu instead of chicken. It comes with tons of veggies so you can just order without the chicken if you don’t want to to add Tofu and it will be filling and delicious. *I asked about the sauce ingredients and they confirmed…

Lucha Verde

Lucha Verde (1326 Davie St.) is one of my favourite restaurants in town and not just because the owner is a friend of mine and an awesome human being(as well as a fellow vegan) but because the food is delicious, the drinks are fun, and the service is friendly and professional. The owner of Lucha Verde…

Cactus Club

Yes friends, you read that right… Cactus Club (1790 Beach Ave.) has finally decided to accommodate our vegan needs with it’s recent release of “The Modern Bowl”. Before I went vegan I used to love the food at Cactus Club (yes I know, some of you will judge me for this), but after going vegan the…

Avocado Bay

I have yet to meet a vegan that does not worship avocados. When I found out that there was an entire restaurant in Vancouver dedicated to avocados, I had to check it out. I figured, you can not have an avocado focused restaurant without amazing vegan options, and I was right. The Avocado Bay (1184…

The Butcher and Bullock

I went to school for my masters degree a block away from The Butcher and Bullock(911 W Pender St.) but in those two years I never thought of giving it a chance. The name gave me the impression that it was a meat only restaurant and therefore there would be nothing for me in there. Yesterday…

8 1/2 Restaurant

8 1/2 (153 E 8th Ave, Vancouver) has a lovely atmosphere, great happy hour, and offers a chill environment that is not as loud and busy as other bars/restaurants on Main St. The first thing I noticed when looking at the menu was that there were no vegan options (it has been a while since…

Marcello Ristorante & Pizzeria

After a long week and a long saturday morning of hard work I decided to stop for some comfort food in the form of pasta.  I always have faith that I will find a vegan option at any restaurant and I decided to give Marcello’s (1404 Commercial Dr.) a try.  As soon as I walked…

Novo Pizzeria

The typical dinner and a movie Sunday turned into a day of discovering this amazing place, Novo Pizzeria (2118 Burrard St). Situated right by 5th Avenue Cinemas, this Italian restaurant pleasantly surprised me with their kindness in accommodating me as a vegan. I asked the server what on their menu could be “veganized”? He laughed…

Fayuca

Voted top 10 restaurants in Vancouver, Fayuca has some of the most delicious food I have ever had. Located in the heart of Yaletown (1009 Hamilton St, Vancouver), Fayuca is a restaurant that serves food inspired by the Pacific Northwest of Mexico. Although the restaurant itself is not vegan, many of their dishes can be…

JamJar – Folk Lebanese Food

Having good Lebanese food is like going back to the best moments of my childhood. JamJar (2280 Commercial Dr) offers high quality and delicious Lebanese food at a good price but the best part is the amount of vegan options available (and the gigantic portion sizes)! The vegan sample plate is only $14 and is…
