Being vegan I frequently get the question “What do you eat?” which is both amusing and fun to answer (generally). In my mind the more pressing question is not what I eat but where I eat. I can find something at just about every restaurant but fries aren’t always the healthiest choice. Here are some places I love to visit, let me know if you ever want an introduction : )
Awesome Restaurants in Vancity:
Gorilla Food: Raw, amazing, downtown… The decor is so cool, it’s like being inside of a tree!
The Naam: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This place in kits is purely awesome because of it’s vibe if nothing else (but the food is good too haha)
Sweet Cherubim: A cool spot on the drive, gave me a new appreciation for some Indian dishes : )
Nuba: I’ve walked by this place so many times without noticing it (right by Victory Square)! I was just introduced to it and will definitely return. More than half their menu is vegan and the dim lighting is very chill.
Restaurants I want to visit before death:
One Lucky Duck in NYC
Cafe Gratitude in San Francisco (thank you to Jason Mraz for the introduction)
Life Cafe in NYC (kudos to RENT for the introduction)
The Foundation here in Vancouver (introduction via an SFU contact and the Olympic Resistance Network haha… long story)
In The Bowl in Seattle (thanks to Teejay, see below for more on him)
Chaco Canyon Organic Café in Seattle
(I hope I got all those names right : P)
