Moroccan Flavors

After seeing a review calling Moroccan Flavors a dream for vegans and vegetarians, we checked it out ASAP. Ordered the Vegetable Tagine. Seemed so healthy that we ordered fries as well. ;-) Located in the Midtown Global Market.

Hola Arepa

Hola Arepa has two arepas (cornmeal griddle cake sandwiches) that can be made vegan upon request, in addition to a couple of small plates.  I had them veganize the Black Bean & Queso Fresco arepa.  Delicious.  The yuca fries are also quite tasty.

Blaze Pizza

So happy to see another pizza chain, Blaze Pizza, offering vegan cheese on their menu. Similar to PizzaRev, this place offers Daiya on a pizza that's made quickly and is offered at a reasonable price. When I asked for vegan cheese, the person making my pizza kindly asked if I'd like her to change gloves before proceeding. PizzaRev has vegan sausage, which is probably the only significant difference that I noticed between the two chains. Blaze currently has two Twin Cities area locations, Minneapolis (Stadium Village) and St. Louis Park.

Reverie Cafe & Bar

Reverie is the new mostly vegan place at Franklin and Nicollet. I had the Cubano, which includes "pulled jackfruit in a smoky sauce served on a Vietnamese French roll with garlic aioli and pickled onions." Really good stuff! I think the restaurant is completely vegan except that they offer dairy milk, presumably for people who want it in their coffee.

Pizza Luce

How is it that I've never ordered the City Slicker off the weekend brunch menu at Pizza Luce?! It's the vegan version of the Cajun Breakfast and it's pretty awesome. Got this one at the downtown location.

I hadn't been to Namaste for a long time. Really like the cauliflower, peas, and potatoes. Vegan items are clearly marked as such.

Taco Cat

This was my first time checking out Taco Cat, a business that started by delivering tacos by bike. Now they also have their own space at the Midtown Global Market. We had veggie tacos and also decided to order a side of chips and guacamole. Yum! If you live within their delivery area, you can still have your tacos delivered by bicycle. While you're at it, check out their web site's irreverent FAQ section.

Herbivorous Butcher

I made my first trip to the wonderfully popular new Herbivorous Butcher. Believe the hype! This place is great! I picked up Italian Sausage, Pastrami, and Dill Havarti. There are so many options! If you live in the area, this is clearly a place you must visit routinely. If you don't live in the area, this place is one reason to start planning a trip to Minneapolis. #allveganeverything

Milkjam Creamery

Whoa! Just discovered that the new Milkjam Creamery, on Lyndale Avenue right next to World Street Kitchen, is very vegan-friendly. I had a scoop of Black--the darkest coco. Quality stuff!
