Chef Jamie Tran’s Vietnamese-influenced menu taps into French technique and American ingredients to create something special for you. Tran, who’s no stranger to the Las Vegas culinary scene (her mentor is acclaimed Chef Vincent Pouessel), opened in May 2017.
Named after Tran’s nickname as a child for being a rebel, The Black Sheep is one of the city’s best spots for creative and flavorful plant-based cuisine.
Las Vegas Vegan-Friendly Restaurant: The Black Sheep
Vegan Options at The Black Sheep
There are a handful of vegan dishes on the menu at The Black Sheep.
First off, whatever you do, the scallion pancakes are a must. These light, crispy pancakes come topped with spicy braised shiitake mushrooms, jicama, pickled radish and micro cilantro. Check out the easy vegan scallion pancake recipe from Chef (although nothing compares to the dish at The Black Sheep)!
Next, there are the Vietnamese glass noodles. Tossed in a spicy gochujang sauce, it comes with Chinese broccoli, Hen of the Woods mushrooms, and roasted Heirloom carrots.
There’s also the cous cous curry. This hearty dish features yellow curry couscous, sautéed Chinese broccoli and a charred plum sauce.
Finally, there’s the smoked eggplant salad that comes to your table (you guessed it) smoking.
The Black Sheep is also flexible when it comes to tweaking dishes to make them vegan. You can modify the grilled peach salad (hold the goat cheese) and the citrus mixed green salad as well.
Plus, if Tran’s around and has a minute, you never know what you might get.
