The most challenging part for vegans is when they dine out because oftentimes, the menu of most restaurants has limited vegan options. But fear not. Being a vegan doesn’t mean that your dining experience away from home will be less enjoyable and will be a problematic situation for you. Fortunately, we also value and respect the vegans cause and endeavors that is why we have these amazing dishes that cater especially to your vegan guests.
Salads are the safest choice for vegans since there are restaurants with salad bars containing a variety of vegetables for you to choose from. Just be mindful of dressings like cheese which can be easily replaced with guacamole dips. If available, you may opt to use balsamic vinaigrette to enhance your salad experience.
Veggie burgers and sandwiches
Vegans can now enjoy one of everyone’s all-time favorite snack: burgers. These veggie burgers contain patties made from either sweet potatoes, corn, beans, tofu, mushrooms or nuts combined with the usual burger companions such as tomato, lettuce, cucumber, onions and the like. Moreover, you may enjoy sandwiches with vegan dips as spreads such as hummus and mixed with vegetables like avocado, tomato and lettuce or other roasted veggies to add a twist.
