The hip shake and burger spot, Black Tap, located inside The Venetian, is a vegan-friendly restaurant. Don’t get too excited though — they don’t have their Instagram-worthy milkshakes in vegan varieties … yet.
But, Black Tap does have vegan dishes to enjoy while you’re omni friends suck down cake-laden, sprinkle covered shakes.
You can start your meal with one of two vegan appetizers (or both) — chips and guacamole or crispy brussels sprouts with a sesame tahini sauce. We’re partial to the sprouts.
For your main dish, choose from a burger or a burger bowl.
We dig the Vegan Burger, a black bean patty with vegan mayo, pickled onions, salsa verde and cilantro.
Black Tap also offers a falafel burger complete with tahini, pickled onion and hummus (hold the feta since there isn’t a vegan feta option available yet).
If you want something a little healthier (read: no bun, no fries), opt for the house-made falafel burger salad with tomatoes, kalamata olives, hummus, pickled onions and tahini dressing (skip the feta).
There’s also the vegan burger and quinoa salad, which is pretty self-explanatory, with lemon dressing.
Rumor has it Black Tap is working on some other options to make their menu more vegan-friendly. Regardless, it’s a viable vegan options inside The Venetian and also boasts a pretty epic patio facing The Strip.
