Discovering good vegan restaurants can be a major chore. Luckily, in the Sacramento area, I have found some great places to score amazing vegan cuisine that not only vegans will love, but meat eaters as well. These restaurants are raved about in the vegan community in Sacramento and you should definitely take the time to check them out.
Downtown Kitchen BBQ vs. Vegan – This is a very different type of vegan restaurant; they offer up BBQ for the meat lovers as well as amazing vegan dishes. Don’t worry, they cook their meat and vegan food in completely separate pans so as not to mix the meat and vegan dishes. This place is somewhat of a dive bar, located in midtown, that offers up some delicious food to their patrons, such as: potato tacos (a personal fave!), vegan grilled cheese, tofu rice bowl, unicorn tofu sandwich, and much more!
The Plum Café – This vegan cafe has a huge menu of vegan items to choose from! They offer an Award-Winning sweet potato avocado Panini, Baja street tacos, pizza, raw pesto kelp noodles, lentil loaf, and even a vegan burger made with a risotto sunflower seed patty. Even if you’re not vegan, The Plum Café is sure to win you over and keep you coming back to taste more of their delicious food over and over again. Also, make sure to save room for some of their delicious gluten free pastries!
The Green Boheme – At first site, you may think this hole in the wall has nothing that you would want to eat. But I was happily proved wrong; this place is a vegan’s sanctuary! The Wellness “Burger” and the Veggin’ Out Pizza are amazeballs! Also, if you want to leave with something sweet, try out the chocolate charge, which is sure to give you a little jumpstart!
Mother – This is a new vegan/vegetarian restaurant that screams trendy hipster! Definitely the new vegan hot spot in Sacramento, Mother offers some delicious menu items. One popular option among customers is their 10 items for $40, which allows you to try a little bit of everything. When stopping by this new vegan heaven, make sure to try: the housemade corn tortilla wrapped black bean taco, chicken fried oyster mushroom, eggplant gumbo, and the delicious eggplant poutine. Don’t pass this place up, or you will surely regret it!
You will not want to miss out on any of this yummy goodness my vegan friends! As I am new to this world, I wasn’t sure where to start, especially when eating out. But each of these restaurants satisfies my vegan-craving tummy every time!
