East Las Vegas now has a vegan restaurant, thanks to Vegan Majjac. The Las Vegas vegan restaurant owned by the same team behind the all-vegan pop-up Roll the Veg, opened a few months ago in Sunrise Manor/North Las Vegas area. Before you go and grab the whole family, the dining room is 21+ only.
For now, they’re subleasing the kitchen inside Fred’s Tavern. Anyone 21+ can devour their food in the dining room, which comes complete with a bar and pool table. If that’s not your scene, they are also available on Uber Eats.
Founded by Anthony Lagrosa, Vegan Majjac serves their own creation. In addition, they highlight guest chefs including pop-up Garden Bites and others.

“We have been trying to reach out to some chefs we’ve met in the community, to offer them the opportunity to present their food through our kitchen,” says Lagrosa. “We have felt first hand the struggle of trying to offer the brick-and-mortar experience; the overhead is so prohibitive and really prevents the community from accessing some great food. This seemed a good way to offer more food options and increased availability to our customers, and provide a space for other food makers in the community to share their passion with us.”
Vegan Majjac’s concept is simple — they want to cook good food for people and show people vegan food tastes good.
“It seems that a lot of people still shy ways from the vegan label,” he says. “Likely because they lack exposure to the current vegan food landscape.”
According to Lagrosa, the menu is popular with transitioning vegans. He’s tried to keep vegan proteins “realistic” and uses flavors and textures which mimic the taste of traditional dishes.

The menu at Vegan Majjac is diverse. They’ve got the usual – pizza, burritos, chili and tacos. But, where they shine are the offerings no other vegan spot is serving currently.
For example, there’s the musubi pizza. It comes topped with dynamite sauce, sliced vegan spam, vegan cheese and furikake.
Other unique eats include Korean BBQ-style skewers and a Taki burrito filled with vegan chicken, esquites, spicy Taki’s and more.
In addition, you can also order Roll the Veg’s food here. They’re serving vegan Filipino eats.
“We understand that some palates aren’t ready for the whole foods, plant-based experience right away and want to make the switch as easy as possible,” he says.
As for the name, Lagrosa admits it might seem strange. The name “Vegan Magic” was taken and so they chose MAJJAC to represent their family and incorporate all their initials.
