Welcome to our favorite day of the year, World Vegan Day. Which is the first day of World Vegan Month. Every year we do a round-up of dishes to try that are so good, non-vegans won’t even ask if it’s vegan. Check out some of our favorite vegan dishes in Las Vegas from year’s past, like these 7 dishes, or these 15. Or, even these 15. Clearly, there are an abundance of vegan dishes everyone will love in Las Vegas, vegan or not.
This year has been amazing to watch so many restaurants up their plant-based game in Las Vegas, and we’re so here for it.
7 more dishes every non-vegan should try in Las Vegas
1. Steak and Eggs, Black and Blue Diner
Black and Blue Diner came on the scene early 2021. With Chef Vic Moea at the helm, this Food Network celeb chef has been uber forward-thinking when it comes to adding vegan eats to his diner’s menu. He opened with a variety of breakfast and lunch eats. Now, he’s got plans to add even more.
Whatever you do, try the steak and eggs here. The vegan version feature JUST Egg with vegan steak. It also comes with crispy, diner-perfect shredded hashbrowns to round out your meal.
2. Rueben Sandwich, Good Morning Kitchen + Cocktails
Good Morning Kitchen, which opened early summer 2021, is one of the hottest brunch spots in Las Vegas. Open every day for breakfast and brunch, Good Morning does vegans right with their options. Our favorite is the reuben. It’s got Unreal corn’d beef smothered with sauerkraut and Thousand Island on toasted sourdough. And, it’s one of the best vegan meat sandwiches we’ve ever had.
3. Nashville Hot, Garden Grill
The best Nashville Hot in existence lives at the all-vegan Garden Grill on the outskirts of Summerlin. The spicy homemade chick’n patty is gorgeously breaded and features a dill slaw and cooling, creamy ranch. There are numerous spots in town if you’re looking for a vegan chicken sandwich, but none of them hold a flame to this goodness from one of the OG vegan businesses in town.
4. The Double Underground, Underground Burger
Underground Burger is a vegan ghost kitchen cooking out of Good Morning and specializing in burgers. While they’re all good, non-vegans will question whether their Double Underground is vegan or not.
Made with a blend of Impossible and mushrooms, the patties are meaty AF. The double features two of these bad boys topped with melted cheddar, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and a secret sauce with a kick. Add in a side of loaded tots to make this meal even better.
5. Cake from Frolic and Folly
Run by the talented baker Amber Lopez, Frolic and Folly makes entirely plant-based cakes and decadent treat boxes. While she mainly offers custom cakes, Lopez just wrapped a creative and spooky Halloween box and has partnered with a handful of other local bakeries for a Thanksgiving vegan treat box.
6. FLOC, Souley Vegan
Perfectly breaded hearts of palm and red peppers are Souley Vegan’s answer to calamari. Known as FLOC (For Lovers of Calamri), this dish is just that. Seasoned in a crispy breading, squeeze some lemons on them and dip in the sauce for the ultimate vegan calamari.
7. Meatloaf, Barry’s Downtown Prime
Housed in the adults-only CIRCA Resort & Casino, Barry’s Downtown Prime is an upscale steakhouse. In addition, it’s got a luxurious vegan menu to accompany their non-vegan offerings. Hands down the best vegan dish on the menu is the meatloaf. The dish is made of meaty veggies and roasted potatoes in a mushroom gravy. If you’re lucky, they’ll even shave some truffle onto it for an even richer dish.
