We would have never known of this off-the-beaten-path spot if it wasn’t for social media. Fortunately, we do know about it and now it’s time to share this goodness with you. Drive north and straight into North Las Vegas to discover the House of Manchester Primal Brasserie.
Vegan food in North Las Vegas is slim pickin’s, but House of Manchester, a Caribbean/Jamaican restaurant with a heavy focus on healthy cuisine and probiotics, is helping to put this part of Vegas on the vegan map. Literally. Look at our map.
House of Manchester doesn’t just have vegan food, it has gluten-free vegan food. Tucked into a tiny swath of businesses along Losee Rd., this cozy restaurant isn’t what you’d expect from its nondescript outside. With only a few tables, House of Manchester is a delightful surprise.
Obviously, we ordered everything vegan on the menu (ok, slight exaggeration, but still). Start with the Bammy Bam Bam with ackee (don’t know what ackee is, check it out here). With the look of eggs, it’s anything but. With a slight sweet taste (we dropped some grapefruit spicy sauce on it and holy wow, that’s a good combo), it comes on grain-free Cassava NotBread, made of veggies that soak up the flavors of herbs they put in. Also, order up the roasted garlic in curry sauce that comes on the NotBread.
Other appetizer options include a NotBread sampler with organic Italian herb olive oil, organic vegan curry Natto (a Japanese dish) and a pear avocado Cassava pizza — just ask for the vegan option that uses Follow Your Heart cheese.
There are two vegan main courses — an organic veggie Run Down with pumpkin, sweet potato and beans in a coconut cream and the organic tamari fricassee mushroom dish with squash, cauliflower and carrots.
With the entrée comes your choice of salad — a chilled cabbage/carrot and garlic scallion option or organic spring salad, plus your choice of hot plate — fried plantains, organic braised kale or tostones con queso with green plantains and vegan cheese (specify you want it vegan).
For dessert, order up a shake or smoothie or try the warm cinnamon-apple-monk fruit cake with a stevia chocolate sauce.
House of Manchester also features organic teas, coffee, vegan scones and a large list of probiotic beverages.
Only open for a couple of years, previously they had a food truck serving up this goodness — Blue Mahoe’s.
