We’ve discovered the most under-the-radar vegan restaurant in Las Vegas — the Mexican Veganos Kitchen. Tucked into North Las Vegas, Veganos Kitchen is a hidden gem in the vegan dining scene in Sin City.
The best part? The Las Vegas vegan restaurant offers something for everyone, thanks to its expansive menu.
Family-owned, Veganos Kitchen serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner and we could eat every meal here, easy.
Let’s start with what sets Veganos Kitchen apart from other vegan Mexican joints in Las Vegas: the pizza.
And, it’s not just any pizza, it’s the good kind of greasy, soak-up-the-booze-from-the-night-before pizza that can fool an omni into thinking its not vegan. Using a healthy amount of Violife mozzarella, Veganos offers many varieties of pizza including pepperoni, BBQ chicken, steak and onions and even Beyond and Impossible meat pizzas.
They’ve also got both the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger to chow down on, plus a burrito filled with Impossible crumbles. Veganos Kitchen also offers a vegan chicken sandwich, a Beyond Hot Dog topped relish, onions, tomato, mustard, ketchup and house-made dressing.
Other choices include the classic torta and a meatball sandwich. Each comes as a combo (you can get them a la carte) with fries and drink.
As for the vegan Mexican food … what don’t they have?
Start your meal with a dish you can share (and order a few different dishes). We’re partial to the flour or corn quesadillas stuffed with cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, lettuce and a choice of meats (vegan asada, marniated vegan pastor, gluten-free vegan soy chicken, gluten-free vegan chorizo, rajas, mushrooms, Impossible or Beyond meat). We also dig the Impossible loaded fries or nachos that come absolutely covered with melted cheese, sour cream, pico, meat and guac.
If you’re in the market for a burrito, Veganos Kitchen’s burritos will fill. you. up. They come in four varieties — Classic with rice, beans, lettuce, pico, shredded cheese, sour cream and a choice of meat; the California Burrito stuffed with all the goodies in the Classic with french fries stuffed inside; a Veggie Burrito; and the Impossible Burrito.
Entrees at Veganos Kitchen include pozole, a traditional tomato-based Mexican soup topped with lettuce, onions, radishes, cilantro and a choice of vegan meat; sopes; and chile relleno. They’ve also got tacos if you’re feeling a little less hungry.
And, there’s even more.
Veganos Kitchen serves breakfast daily until 12:30 p.m. Start your day with chilaquiles, a chorizo breakfast burrito or a Mexican-style breakfast burrito filled with tofu, grilled onions, tomato, cilantro, beans, jalapeños and sour cream.
The other best part? Veganos Kitchen’s prices are some of the least expensive in the city for vegan eats — the most expensive item on the menu is the Impossible burger combo coming in at $12.99.
