Looking for kosher vegan food in Las Vegas? Then check out Burnt Offerings. Opened in Aug. 2019, this West Las Vegas spot tucked into a strip mall combines Old World Yiddish food with New World foodie life.
The vegan-friendly Las Vegas restaurant is a collab between Chef Jennifer Eckmann and Alexandra Emtsova and designed to serve the Jewish community and beyond, offering one of the few spots in town that is kosher and under Rabbinical supervision.
With a clever menu to rope you in, the vegan options at Burnt Offerings are a-plenty.
Start your meal with some schmears. The restaurant offers flights of five schmears, all of which are vegan. We dig the Off Weiss (think a light ranch) and the Kosher Dill, but truly, they are all good for dipping your toasted bread in.
The restaurant also serves up plates you can share like Burning Guilt Sacks filled with avocado, corn and roasted pepper.
If you want to try something new, then the Kush Myne Truffle Poutine is where it’s at. A twist on traditional poutine, this appetizer features fried potatoes smothered in Off Weiss with mushrooms, parsley and crispy rice noodles.
Now, let’s talk salads.
The two vegan salads Burnt Offerings serves up are massive. And, we mean massive.
Choose from a more run-of-the-mill salad, the Hoys Copped Salat, with butter lettuce, Heirloom cherry tomatoes, yellow peppers, purple cabbage, kalamata olives and pepperoncini in their limone feffer dressing or …
Try the Gezunt Salat, a large bowl of quinoa, crispy rice noodles, arugula, spinach, pine nuts, grapes, jicama and sweet garlic confit tossed in a beautiful blueberry balsamic vinaigrette.
If you want something hot for your main course, order the Klutzy Angel Lukshn, a bowtie pasta dish with ratatouille.
Heading over for lunch?
Burnt Offerings also offers pre-fixed lunch specials that are $14 and include vegan options, as well as a vegan sandwich loaded with veggies and a cashew nut pesto.
While there isn’t a specific vegan dessert on the menu, they can make you chocolate cream cheese mousse with gummy worms and it’s the perfect light and sweet ending to your Yiddish meal.
