Raise a pint and celebrate another restaurant offering vegan options in Las Vegas.
Aces and Ales, a vegan-friendly gastropub, has two locations in Las Vegas — both with vegan options. Known for their stellar line-up of (you guessed it) ales, now they’re upping their game with a few vegan options.
Las Vegas Vegan-Friendly Pub: Aces and Ales
After testing a handful of vegan items this summer and the vegan community showing up to try them, the Aces and Ales team decided to keep the options on the menu.
We’ll drink to that!
Vegan Burgers at Aces and Ales
Any good gastropub has got to have burgers. And they do — two of which are vegan!
If you like a little heat, the Screamin’ Vengeance is for you. This burger uses Impossible Ground and is seasoned in-house and smothered with a flavorful “Green Crack” sauce featuring jalapeño and cilantro.
Then, it’s finished off with cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce and tomato.
And, just when we determined this burger to be a mild to medium heat level, we bite into a freshly sliced jalapeño and that certainly kicked things up a notch!
Reminiscent of a good English pub, this burger is served with a side of crunchy, housemade salt and vinegar chips.
These babies are more mild and complimentary to the burger. The potatoes are brined in vinegar, then the sea salt is added afterwards to make these chips. So. Good.
If you enjoy the sweet life, try the Hawaii 5-0 Teriyaki Burger with sweet potato fries.
Crispy onion rings and juicy grilled pineapple come served atop this house-seasoned patty. Next, finger-licking teriyaki sauce and a touch a salt, are added so it’s not too sweet.
Other vegan options at Aces and Ales
In the mood for Mexican?
Aces and Ales has a fajita mix and “carne asada” fries for us vegans. The fajitas come sizzling hot in a personal-sized skillet. It features chopped Impossible meat mixed with the chef’s special blend of spices, sautéed peppers, onions, mushrooms and topped with cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
Here’s the downer: the tortillas aren’t vegan, so either nosh straight from the skillet or top it on a salad. We’ve reached out to ask about the tortillas and making them vegan, but no response yet. Feel free to do the same.
If you want something to chow on, try MT’s Carne Asada Fries. Modern Times, a vegan kitchen and brewery of out California, inspired the dish, along with the restaurant’s other vegan options.
This towering pile of fries can be a shared appetizer or as an entrée.
It starts with house cut fries, “carne asada” strips, melty cheddar and pico de gallo.
Finally, there’s pizza.
We’re a sucker for any pizza where you can smell the garlic and basil before you can taste them.
Their vegan Caprese Pizza has a healthy helping of mozzarella with Roma tomatoes and chopped garlic, topped with fresh basil and a sweet balsamic reduction.
And, it’s not super greasy like a lot of vegan pizzas (because of the cheese substitutes). Even warmed up in the microwave the next morning (yes, morning, don’t judge!) we were pretty happy with the pizza.
Aces and Ales is another great example of what can happen when restaurants listen to their customers and are willing to expand their menu to include vegan options. So, keep ordering and keep requesting vegan dishes – it’s working!
