Silverado Ranch is becoming increasingly vegan-friendly thanks to the opening of spots like Ah-Sah-EE Cafe and restaurants offering vegan options.
When you are in the Silverado area and are craving Mediterranean food, set your navigation for Pita House. Not easily visible from the street, this little gem is worth hunting out. They have a variety of options for all vegans and many of them are even gluten-free.
All of their entrees are made to order, making it easy to create your own dish simply and deliciously. Want extra dressing or to substitute cucumber for the fresh in-house made pita – no problem … and no up-charge. No onions on your salad or cracked wheat for your tabouli? Again, no problem.
The locally-owned, fast-casual, vegan-friendly restaurant in Las Vegas is one we love thanks to friendly service.Taste + value with great service = we were there three times in one week.
Start your meal with creamy hummus or baba ganoush. Or, be like us and order both because, really, it’s hard to choose.
Other excellent vegan appetizers at Pita House include the fresh-baked spinach pie filled with (you guessed it) spinach, onions and lemon juice, or the grape leaves, a traditional cold dish stuffed with rice, vegetables and spices. A must-have on the menu is the zaatar, a large flatbread covered with oregano and sesame seeds, then drizzled with olive oil. You can also get this with vegetables in a wrap.
For your greens, there’s fattoush salad made with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, cucumbers and radishes, tossed in a flavorful herb dressing. There’s also the Greek salad (minus the feta). To make it a meal, add kabob veggies that are marinated and charred to go on top of your fattoush or tabouli.
There are a handful of vegan options at Pita House for your main course. Order up the kafta plate with grilled veggies or veggie kabob, both of which come with a side salad and choice of fries or basmati rice. You can also order the combo platter featuring deep-friend falafel (these are gluten-free, made with garbanzo and fava beans and are golf-ball sized), grape leaves, fattoush and hummus or baba ganoush with pita, or a wrap (veggie or falafel).
Sadly, Pita House doesn’t have vegan desserts … yet. But, let’s be real, if you order like we order when here, there’s no room left for sweets.
