First they were vegan. Then, they switched to non-vegan menu items while maintaining their vegan options. Now, Cafe No Fur is once again an entirely vegan restaurant in Las Vegas.
While they’re still working out some kinks, Cafe No Fur has drummed up quite the delivery business thanks to its proximity to The Strip, and the fact that they are in the kitchen 24/7 making food.
The vegan Chinatown restaurant serves a little bit of everything — breakfast ’round-the-clock, healthy bowls, burgers, heaps of fried goodness and more, plus their homemade almond ice cream and desserts.
If you ask us, where Cafe No Fur shines is in its soak-up-the-booze fried food you can order after a night out.
Here, their chicken fingers are about as realistic as they get.
Plus, they also have vegan chicken wings and fried shrimp that can fool non-vegans.
The menu at Cafe No Fur is expansive (although not as massive as The Modern Vegan), so we’re going to touch on a few eats in each category.
Start your meal off with Monster Fries or Monster Tots to share, or opt for Impossible Sliders which are eerily like McDonald’s burgers from our non-vegan days.
They also offer apps like gyoza dumplings, tamales and bacon pancake dippers.
For those of you who are hungry, Cafe No Fur’s combo plates are where it’s at. They feature plenty of burger options — the Beyond and Impossible Burgers, plus local patties from No Butcher, and a black bean burger. Other options include mini corndogs with fries, pizza, ribs, the Beyond Brat and so. much. more.
With breakfast served all the time, you’ve got quite a few choices, too.
Our top pick?
The Monster Fried Egg Burger. This bad boy comes loaded with a sausage patty, bacon, hash brown, cheese and a vegan fried egg … with a side of tots for good measure.
They’ve also got breakfast eats like a tofu scramble, steak and eggs and even the Impossible Loco Moco with fried egg, which features a patty on top of a bed of jasmine rice, with a vegan fried egg and brown gravy.
Got a group? No problem. You can order max packs of fried chicken, a nine-piece chicken finger basked and a bucket of fried shrimp.
Not to be outdone by their main offerings, Cafe No Fur features Almond Milk Creamery’s desserts and ice cream that includes a brownie sundae, Ronald’s Donut ice cream sandwich, funnel cake and ice cream, shakes, floats and more.
