Vegan Crepes at Irie Vegan Kitchen

Chefs Nigel and Andrea of Irie Vegan Kitchen are at it again! This vegan chef couple have been hosting weekly Sunday brunches in their home for several years, but recently, they've begun a daily lunch service (in addition to Sunday brunch). And they're currently specializing in savory and sweet vegan crepes!

My friends Susan and Megan joined me for lunch at Nigel and Andrea's Orange Mound home (known as Irie Vegan Kitchen) last Friday. I opted for the Vegan Philly Cheeseteak Crepe with a side of Garlic Kale.

The savory menu features crepes stuffed with either pizza filling, cheesesteak filling, vegan caesar steak, or pesto chicken, plus they have a chicken bacon ranch sandwich, a smoked sausage sandwich, vegan fish tacos and sides of garlic kale, scrambled tofu, pancakes, herbed roasted potatoes, salads, and juices.

The crepes come in large or small. I recommend the large (plus a side) if you want a full meal, but you could also try two smaller crepes in different flavors to mix it up. Here's a large all folded up.

Inside shot before I bit into it! This had vegan steak, vegan cheese, peppers, and mushrooms.

They also have a mouth-watering list of sweet crepes, but we were too full for dessert. I'll have to make a special trip soon to try the lemon cream, Cupid's Choice (not sure what flavor that is!), or Triple Threat (also don't know the flavor there, but I'm guessing it involves chocolate).

Irie Vegan Kitchen is located at 806 Newell, and lunch is served from 11 am to 3 pm. Reservations are highly recommended since this is a private home. If you'd like more info on how to contact Nigel and Andrea to make a reservation, I'm happy to share their contact info in a private message. Just email me at phillipsbianca[at]gmail[dot]com.

What a fabulous lunch and amazing place to eat! Sometimes i make really thin socca and pretend those are a crepe ;) i think the last time i had a crepe was many years ago from a street vendor in paris- I’m sure it wasn’t vegan- they had a huge flattop and a clever little tool that spread the batter around evenly

This sounds so good!
