Get ready for healthy vegan eats (and a lot of gluten-free options) at the city’s new Flower Child. The first Flower Child to open its groovy doors in Nevada, the menu focuses on local produce and serving up “healthy food for a happy world.”
And, honestly, the food does make us happy.
The airy fast-casual space has a light and fresh vibe, from its wooden paneled ceiling to wicker chairs and bright and open dining space featuring a massive patio. It’s a restaurant made for Instagram.
Let’s talk vegan options. And, there are plenty of them.
The menu features two vegan starters — a simple hummus with peppadew, olive, lemon and oregano and also the avocado hummus with sweet corn, radishes, clementines and pumpkin seeds. You can even add raw veggies for dippin’ to keep it GF.
Flower Child’s salads are organic and include a chopped veggie salad, Vietnamese Crunch with savoy cabbage, romaine, quinoa, tomato, bell peppers, pineapple, avocado, cashews, Thai basil, cilantro, mint and a spicy lemongrass vinaigrette, and their Vegan Ingredient salad with romanic, cauliflower, avocado, roasted corn and more in a lemon tahini dressing.
There are also plenty of vegan plates to choose from — and you can pick one ($4), two ($7) or three ($9) to vary it up. Vegan plates include grilled asparagus, Indian-spiced cauliflower, Sichuan green beans, spicy Japanese eggplant, sauteed spinach, organic brown rice and red chili glazed sweet potatoes.
Our favorite are the bowls ($9) with added tofu that is perfectly flavored ($4). All bowls at Flower Child come vegan, and the most popular are the Mother Earth with ancient grains, sweet potatoes, portobello mushrooms (swear, they are the most flavorful ‘shrooms we’ve had!), avocado, cucumber, broccoli pesto, charred onion and a red pepper miso vinaigrette, and the “Forbidden Rice” bowl with black pear, red japonica, snap peas, bok choy, broccoli, carrots, onions and toasted sesame in a red chili hoisin sauce. There’s also the Thai Cashew Quinoa bowl and Vegan Poke featuring marinated beets, avocado, pickled mushrooms, and more in a spicy ponzu sauce.
The one vegan wrap at Flower Child is the Thai Dye. Choose from a whole what or flax and chia seed wrap that’s filled with spicy tofu, Thai basil, avocado, carrots, daikon radishes, cilantro and snap peas.
For dessert, grab the chocolate pudding with toasted coconut.
Flower Child also features kombucha on tap, cold brew, wine and beer.
