I went to Las Vegas for the first time ever last week. I had a great time and I am sure I’ll return (someday). While Vegas is known for gambling, drinking and shows…it’s not renowned for being veg (vegetarian and vegan) friendly. Even so, I found it a snap to eat veg in Vegas.
Here’s a list of restaurants I know of that have vegetarian and vegan options. You shouldn’t take my word for it though. Do some research for yourself too.
(1) Go Raw Cafe
Tasty raw vegan food at two different locations. One of the locations even has a salad bar. We went to the Lakes Center local during our second day in Vegas and left very satisfied. Matt and I shared a tropical smoothie and the Mexicali Sampler.
I must warn all of you, though: this place is not close to the strip. When I say not close, I mean don’t try to take the bus! Please. We did and it took us over an hour. If you are in Vegas with no car and don’t want to take a cab, I would skip Go Raw.
I love Chipotle. Big ass veggie burritos the size of my head. If you want yours vegan- get no cheese, no sour cream and black beans. That’s the way I like it. Oh, and lots of salsa!
There is a Chipotle right on the strip too. It’s next to Harrah’s Casino.
(3) P.F. Changs
P.F. Changs is a great place to start a fun night out right. My favorite dishes are the vegetarian lettuce wraps and the coconut curry vegetables. They have many other clearly marked veg dishes too. Changs is also located on the strip.
If you are vegetarian, they have tons of killer pizzas. If you are vegan, a source tells me that you have much to choose from too, including the Broccoli Sun-Dried Tomato Fusili (no parm), which is awesome. Again-right on the f’ing strip!
(5) Ronald’s Donuts
Unfortunately, Matt and I didn’t have time to visit Ronald’s this time, but it’s on the to do list for next trip. Ronald’s is not on the strip, but it isn’t too far. Let me know if you have any luck taking the bus there!
I am adding your veg-friendly Vegas spots here:
(6) Burger Bar
I am sure there are many more veg options then what I’ve listed here, so keep your eyes open and your chin up! 😉
Other foodie tips: Bring breakfast with you. We packed cereal, almond milk and lots of fruit. Yummy and CHEAP! We also brought oatmeal, but our hotel room didn’t have a microwave nor hot enough water to cook the oats. We asked a restaurant down stairs and they wanted to charge us $2 or something for a little cup of hot water. Whatever! I’ll stick to cereal.
I also brought some homemade trail mix for snackage on the go.
I hope this info helps and please leave me a comment if you can think of any other veg friendly places in Vegas or any Vegas tips in general.
