The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is one of the Strip’s most exciting vegan-friendly places thanks to creative dishes at spots like China Poblano, Momofuku and even Pok Pok Wings at the Block 16 eatery. You can add Holsteins to that list of vegan-friendly restaurants at The Cosmopolitan.
Sure, it’s a burger joint, but there a few vegans eats you can try.
Start your meal with their Bam-boozeled shake — the Vegas Vegan. This indulgent shake comes filled with Stoli Strasberi vodka, vegan ice cream and raspberry sauce and topped with a raspberry candy stick, vegan brownie bites, a chocolate pretzel rod and banana Laffy Taffy. It’s served with peanut butter and peanut icing spackled on the rim of the glass.
Hosteins only true vegan dish is the quinoa salad made with both red and white quinoa, roasted cauliflower, baby kale, grilled asparagus, dried fruit and crispy yams tossed in a fig vinaigrette.
The restaurant also offers both french fries and sweet potato fries, plus beer-battered cauliflower, but you’ve got to hold the sauce since it’s made with chicken stock.
If you want a meal, order the veggie burger without the bun (we made ours a lettuce wrap). The fried patty is made with quinoa and a handful of other veggies and comes topped with tomato, onion, cucumber, sprouts and avocado. Be sure to hold the tomato aioli, it’s not vegan.
Holsteins also makes a great vegan-friendly late night spot, closing at midnight most nights of the week.
