Memphis Vegan Dining Guide

2 Vegan Sistas — Mostly raw/totally vegan cafe with amazing cashew-based mock chicken salad sandwiches, live pizza, live falafel, cooked spaghetti, stir-fries with quinoa, and much more. Dessert is not to be missed. Try the peanut butter and carob Reese's Raw Pie or the nut and date-based Raw Oreos. 6343 Summer Ave, #110 (1-800-984-0379).

A-Tan Chinese Restaurant — Chinese restaurant with sushi and hibachi grill. Menu features several vegetarian selections. If you drink alcohol, try the Flaming Volcano (a tropical, flaming cocktail served in a ceramic volcano-shaped bowl).  3445 Poplar (901-458-8877).

Absynnia Restaurant – This Ethiopian restaurant features a number of low-fat vegetarian dishes served with endless spongey injera bread. Don't miss their amazing Saturday buffet where almost every dish offered is vegetarian. 2600 Poplar (901-321-0082).

Al-Rayan — Cute Middle Eastern joint tucked into a nondescript shopping center serving the best hummus and falafel in town. Plus, they have a few Ethiopian dishes, including the vegan Ful (a steaming dish of mashed fava beans with olive oil, lemon, garlic, and onion). There's also a tasty (and very filling) vegetable sandwich. Try the Arabic Coffee! 288 N. Cleveland. (901-272-0227).

Babalu — This Overton Square tacos and tapas bar has a few veganizable items. The veggie tacos can be made without cheese, and the homemade veggie burger patty can be made without eggs by request (but be sure to ask!). Also, the tableside guacamole is HUGE and delicious, and they have black-eyed pea hummus. If you're drinking, note that the housemade sour mix contains egg, but they're happy to swap it out for lemonade in any cocktail. 2115 Madison Ave. (901-274-0100).

Bangkok Alley — Thai meets Japanese at this Thai eatery/sushi bar. Vegetarian options are clearly marked as "Vegetarian (No Meat)." While the veg selection is not huge, the sauces used for vegetarian entrees are absolutely delicious, and plain un-fried tofu can be added to veggie stir-fries. The pad see ew can be made vegan, and it's the best in town! Also, the Thai herb rice fritters are fantastic. Brown rice is also an option. 121 Union Ave. (901-522-2010).


Bhan Thai – Gourmet Thai dishes, any of which can be prepared with fried tofu. Be sure to ask the server to leave out fish sauce since it comes standard in most of their entrees. Avoid the curries, as they cannot be prepared without fish sauce. Also, avoid the soups as they are prepared with chicken stock. Its romantic ambiance makes this a great date restaurant. 1324 Peabody (901-272-1538).

Belly Acres — Overton Square burger joint with three vegan burger options and lots of vegan sides, including locally grown veggies and house-made chips. The Black-Eyed Pea Burger, topped with sweet potato and pickled collards, is amazing. All burgers come with non-vegan toppings, like cheese or aioli, so be sure and ask to have those left off. 2012 Trimble Place. (901-529-7071).

Blue Fin — Hip downtown sushi bar with several veggie rolls, including the best shitake roll in town. 135 S. Main (901-528-1010).

The Blue Nile Ethiopian restaurant with LOTS of vegan options. You can order the big vegetarian platter with lentil stews (wats), greens, cabbage, potatoes, other veggies, and plenty of soft injera for scooping. Or try the lentil salad sandwich. Or the firfir (injera soaked with lentil stew). The tofu kabobs are made with THE BEST TOFU IN TOWN. Seriously. So many options. So amazing. 1788 Madison. (901) 474-7214.
 
Boscos Squared – This Midtown microbrewery serves yummy veggie burgers (not sure of their vegan-ness - haven't eaten one since going vegan) and made-in-house beer. They'll also make a cheeseless veggie pizza by request. 2120 Madison (901-432-2222).  

Brother Juniper’s – Scrambled tofu and other vegetarian breakfast items. Order the Fahim's Special (it's no longer on the menu, but they'll make it by request) for a special tofu scramble with roasted red peppers and portabella mushrooms. The diced, fried hash browns are to die for. Located in the University of Memphis area. 3519 Walker Ave. (901-324-0144).

Cafe Eclectic — Coffeehouse with a few vegan food items. There's a black bean & hummus wrap, some awesome sweet potato hash, and guacamole. For brunch, they have vegan pancakes (but be sure and ask them to leave off the honey granola) and a build-your-own tofu scramble. They do have vegan granola bars to-go though (and if you ask nicely, I bet they'd even crumble the vegan granola bar over your pancakes instead of the honey granola). 603 N. McLean (901-725-1718).

Casablanca/Casbah – Both locations of this eatery offer Moroccan/Middle Eastern fare. Their falafel is to die for, especially when served on their "Big Mac of the Middle East" falafel pita sammy. Also check out the rice-stuffed grape leaves. Try the Vegetarian Platter (grape leaves, falafel, hummus, pita), but ask them to leave off the cheesy spanakopita. Also, they have the best baba ganoush in the world. 5030 Poplar Ave, #7. (901-725-8558); 1890 N. Germantown Pkwy. (901-433-9712); 1707 Madison (901-421-6949). 
 
Chang’s Bubble Tea – Numerous vegan bubble teas options! Stick with the fruit-flavored teas, as the milk teas and creamy teas (like coconut and chai) contain dairy. The food menu has a few vegan options, like curry tofu, vegetable tofu, and vegetable fried rice. 8095 Macon Road (901-682-7229).

Cheffie's Cafe — This build-your-own salad and sandwich cafe is ripe with vegan possibilities! While they have a vegan sandwich (The Garden) and a vegan salad (The Veggie Delite) on their set menu, you can also have their employees build you a salad or sandwich with anything you wish. Vegan options include mixed greens, baby spinach, romaine, arugala, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, carrots cucumber, pickle slices, banana peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, black beans and corn, roasted red peppers, a bell pepper mix, red onions, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, almonds, artichoke hearts, French fried onions, balsamic vinaigrette, and sun-dried tomato hummus. 483 High Point Terrace. (901-343-0488)

Cooper Street 20/20 — Grab-and-go shop with weekly vegan specials (examples include vegan stuffed eggplant, chickpeas and rice, etc.). There are always a variety of vegan soups and several flavors of hummus to choose from. Each ingredient is listed on the label, but watch out for honey. 800 S. Cooper. 871-6879.

Cosmic Coconut — This all-vegan juice and smoothie bar offers delicious drinks using fresh, organic produce. They also serve coffee, tea, and smoothie bowls (smoothies served in a bowl topped with nuts, coconut, or granola). Try the Chocolate Covered Almond smoothie (bananas, coconut milk, carob, cacao, and almond butter) or the Solar Power Juice (carrots, apples, ginger, and orange). 5101 Sanderlin Ave., Suite 104B (901-729-7134).

Crazy Noodle — This Midtown noodle shop has a number of vegan options. And OMG, they have VEGAN RAMEN!! They use vegetable broth in some soups (Tofu Ramen, Vegetable Ramen, etc.), and others that aren't vegan on the menu can be made vegan by request. I love the Vegan Mandou-Guk, a soup with veggie dumplings, shiitakes, and Korean rice cakes. It typically has chicken broth and eggs, so be sure and ask for the vegan version! Also there are some vegan cold noodle dishes on the menu too. And the veggie sushi is hands-down the best in town. 2015 Madison. (901-272-0928).

Cupboard Restaurant — Southern meat-and-three diner, but they have vegan options! Many of the side dishes (turnip greens, spiced beets, green beans, northern beans, crowder peas, etc.) are made without meat drippings or other animal products. See this post for a full list of what's vegan and what day of the week each dish is offered. 1400 Union (901-276-8015).

Curry Bowl — Authentic South Indian cuisine! Curry Bowl has a massive lunch buffet with lots of veg options and fried awesomeness (dosa, pakora, vada, etc.). And they have a huge veggie selection on their regular menu. 4141 Hacks Cross. 901-207-6051.

Deja Vu Creole Soul Food and Vegetarian Cafe — Large vegan menu featuring Southern comfort foods, like mock chicken salad, BBQ tofu, and much more. Most all the soul food sides are vegan, like collard greens and fried cabbage. And they have vegan desserts (the chocolate cake with strawberry sauce is divine)!! 51 S. Main St (901) 505-0212.

Derae Restaurant — Ethiopian restaurant with several vegan items. Try the vegetarian platter (lentils, cabbage, kale, and other goodness served over spongey injera). Also serving Ethiopian breakfast, such as ful (a fava bean stew), all day long. Plus, the owner is super-super-nice. Best service in town. 923 S. Highland (901-552-3992). 

Evelyn & Olive — This Jamaican restaurant and wine bar has several delicious vegan options. The black bean & tofu tacos (topped with kiwi salsa) is hands down the best thing on the menu, but the Kingston Cabbage is legendary. 630 Madison. (901-748-5422).


Fuel - This eco-friendly Midtown cafe offers plenty in the way of vegan options. The smoky house made vegan burger will blow your mind! Order it reuben-style, and your face will melt off. The vegan nachos and chili mac are both topped a hearty quinoa chili. Ask the server for vegan cheese.  At dinner, ask for the vegan pasta of the day or the tofu Thai curry. Fuel also serves a badass vegan brunch with tofu scramble, vegan biscuits and gravy, and more! By the way, this place is Project Green Fork certified, which means they recycle, compost, use green cleaners, and commit to sustainable business practices. 1761 Madison Ave. (901-725-9025).

Havana's Pilon — Authentic Cuban diner offering a number of vegan dishes. The stewed eggplant in tomato sauce is the only vegan main dish, but it comes with two sides. And a number of those sides are vegan — black beans and rice (BEST THING EVER!), boiled yuca, fried plantains, and more. 143 Madison. 901-527-2878.

Huey’s – Famous Memphis burger joint offering veggie burgers. The regular veggie patties are completely vegan! But avoid the black bean patty if you avoid eggs. 77 S. Second (901-525-4839); 1927 Madison (901-726-4372); 4872 Poplar (901-682-7729); 7825 Winchester (901-624-8911); 1771 N. Germantown Pkwy. (901-754-3885); 2130 W. Poplar, Collierville (901-854-4455).

I Love Juice Bar — Mostly vegan Midtown juice bar. Only a few items contain bee products, but everything else is vegan. Juices, smoothies, essential oil shots, and a few grab-and-go vegan food items, such as salad rolls and sprout sandwiches. 553 S. Cooper. (901-612-2720).

Imagine Vegan Cafe — Memphis' totally vegan cafe! Imagine offers a HUGE menu of veganized comfort food classics — vegan chicken & waffles, Philly cheesesteaks, buffalo "wings," vegan beef tips with rice, you name it. There's also a build-your-own vegan cheese pizza option. And let's not forget dessert. The peanut butter milkshake will change your life, and the cakes, brownies, and cookies are to die for! Imagine offers Sunday brunch too! The Memphis Slam (biscuits topped with sausage, gravy, tofu scramble, and vegan cheese sauce) is amazing!! 2299 Young Ave. (901-654-3455). (http://www.imaginevegancafe.com/)

India Palace – Lots of veggie options are offered at this Midtown institution. Try the vegetable curry, the dhal soup, or the extensive buffet. 1720 Poplar (901-278-1199).
 
Jasmine – There are tons of vegan options at this yummy Thai restaurant. Dishes on about half the menu are served with tofu (and they have a huge menu). Try the Potato Basket (fried tofu and stir-fried veggies served in a basket made from fried hashbrowns). 916 S. Cooper (901-725-0223).
 
Java Cabana – This Cooper-Young coffeehouse serves vegan tacos, soy burgers, vegetarian sausage and biscuits, giant vegan cookies, and vegan cappuccinos. 2170 Young Ave. (901-272-7210).

Kwik Chek – Who says convenience store food has to be unhealthy? At the Kwik Chek on Madison (across from the Blue Monkey), they’re serving up Korean-style bibimbap (order it vegan-style with tofu and no egg). And they also have fantastic falafel and hummus pitas (vegans: ask them to leave off the cucumber sauce). 2013 Madison (901-274-9293).

Lunchbox Eats — Quaint downtown school-themed diner where the food is served on plastic lunch trays and they serve a lemonade of the day (try the blueberry!). Vegan options include portabella wellington on phyllo (but be sure to ask them to spread the dough with oil and not butter) and a big ass salad (ask them to omit cheese and croutons). The best part are the sides! Kale Chips! Roasted Chickpeas! Pound o' fries!! 288 S. Fourth (901-526-0820)

LYFE Kitchen — Vegan-friendly fast-casual chain with loads of options. They use Gardein meats for their plant meat. The veggie burger is amazing, and you can add Daiya. Also, try the Thai red curry bowl with tofu, the ancient grain stir-fry with Gardein beefless tips, the quinoa crunch bowl with edamame hummus, and SO MUCH MORE. They also have vegan breakfast items (tofu scramble wrap!), smoothies, and hand-crafted cocktails and infused waters. 6201 Poplar (901-684-5333); 272 S. Main (901-526-0254).

Midtown Crossing — Home of the Bianca Banh Mi! Yep, you can get a vegan Vietnamese sandwich named after yours truly. They also have vegan cheese for pizzas (ask for it because it's not on the menu) and vegan spring rolls. 394 N. Watkins. (901-443-0502).
 
Moe’s Southwest Grill – This national chain of burrito restaurants offers marinated tofu in place of chicken or steak on burritos and tacos. And bring your appetite because the burritos are super-fat! 6300 Poplar (881-6012); 465 N. Germantown Pkwy. (901-737-5058).
 
Molly’s La Casita – A Memphis staple, this Mexican joint makes a mean vegetarian platter. 2006 Madison (901-726-1873).

Mosa Asian Bistro — This Asian fusion eatery offers an assortment of Chinese and Thai dishes, most of which can easily be made vegan. Tofu is offered as a protein choice for almost every dish, and most are fish sauce-free. The friendly staff is happy to help vegans decipher the menu. 1825 Kirby Parkway (901-755-6755);  850 S. White Station (901-683-8889).

Mulan Asian Bistro — The Midtown location, situated in the heart of the hip Cooper-Young Historic District, offers an array of vegan dishes, like General Tso's Tofu, Eggplant in Garlic Sauce, and Sauteed Shanghai Greens. They also have an extensive sushi menu with vegan options. If you go for lunch, be aware that none of the lunch menu options appear to be made with tofu. But they'll happily substitute tofu in anything! 2149 Young Ave. (901-347-3965).

New Hong Kong — This modest mom-and-pop Chinese shop has a secret vegan menu! Just ask the lady behind the counter, and feast your eyes (and eventually your mouth) on the massive menu of classic Asian dishes prepared with mock chicken, mock beef, mock shrimp, mock ham, and fried bean curd. They even have vegan fried wontons! 4594 Quince (901-680-0999).
 
Otherlands – This quaint little Midtown coffeeshop serves vegan frozen coffee drinks, juices, bagels with various spreads, soups, and other yummy quick items. 641 S. Cooper (901-278-4994).
 
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro – Fine dining the vegetarian way. Though only a few menu items list tofu, ANY dish at P.F. Chang’s can be made with tofu instead of meat. Just ask your waiter. 1181 Ridgeway (901-818-3889). 
 
Pei Wei Asian Diner – A fast-food version of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, this Midtown chain serves several tasty tofu dishes. 1680 Union (901-722-3780); 2257 North Germantown Parkway (901-382-1822).
 
Pho Binh – During the work week, this little Vietnamese joint has a buffet full of fried tofu stir-fries and soups. And it’s only like $6 for all-you-can-eat! Other times of the day, order off the extensive menu. I recommend the lemongrass tofu (best in town!) or the green bean tofu. 1615 Madison (901-276-0006).

Phuong Long — Vietnamese joint with several tofu and vegetable-based dishes. The lemongrass tofu is fantastic. Excellent tofu dishes on the lunch special menu. 306 N. Cleveland. (901-725-5079). 

Pink Diva Cupcakery — Vegan cupcake and catering business. There's no longer a brick-and-mortar location, but Chef Cassi takes special orders for cupcakes, and she caters events. Check out the Facebook page for details. I recommend the Diva Delight Cupcake (chocolate coffee cupcake stuffed with chocolate mousse and topped with a vegan whipped frosting and ganache). cassi@pinkdivacupcakery.com

Pyro's Fire Fresh Pizza — This build-your-own pizza joint has vegan cheese! And the pizzas come in lovely single-serve 11-inch sizes. You get a crust and then pick your sauce, cheese, and as many of the 40 toppings as you want (LOTS of those toppings are veggies, btw). Then they fire the pizza in a wood-fired grill. You can also build salads. And they have a great selection of local craft brew. 1199 Ridgeway in East Memphis (379-8294); 2035 Union in Midtown (208-8857). 

Robata Ramen & Yakitori Bar — Ramen shop with VEGAN RAMEN!! Order the Yasai Ramen (seaweed & soy broth) with rice noodles, tofu, and veggies. Beware of the yellow ramen noodles as they contain egg. Robata also has a great selection of veggie yakitori (skewers), rice balls, and gyoza. 2116 Madison Ave. (901-410-8290).

Rock 'n' Dough Pizza Co. — This East Memphis pizzeria offers a delicious Vegan Pie topped with vegan white sauce, Daiya cheese, roasted bell peppers, zucchini, spinach, and kalamata olives. Also, you can build your own vegan cheese pizza. Small dining room, so avoid peak times or pick up a pie to take home. 1243 Ridgeway Rd. Call (901) 435-6238.

RP Tracks — This U of M bar & grill serves YUMMY barbecue tofu nachos, a barbecue tofu burrito, a barbecue tofu sandwich, a tofu club sandwich, buffalo tofu wings, and some damn good hummus. A must for any local or visiting vegetarian! 3547 Walker. (901-327-1471).

Trolley Stop Market — Adorable farm-to-table cafe where owners Jill and Keith use produce from their own farm to make many of the dishes. Trolley Stop has a vegan cheese (Daiya) option for their housemade, locally-famous pizzas. Plus, you can add vegan cheese to their delectable Spinny Shroom Sandwich (spinach and mushrooms on toasted bread ... ask for no butter on the bread). There's also an amazing homemade veggie burger and a hummus and black bean wrap. 704 Madison. (901-526-1361).  

Whole Foods – Offering several vegan and vegetarian entrees on the hot bar and salad bar, as well as a number of vegetarian take-home deli items. There's also a "flex venue" restaurant counter that changes it's menu monthly and typically always has a vegan option (veggie burgers, veggie brats, etc.), and the Wok Street counter always has vegan noodle entrees available (and typically veggie sushi as well). The mock chicken nuggets on the hot bar are a must-try. 5022 Poplar (685-2293). 

Young Avenue Deli – Not only do they boast the best homemade French fries in town, they also serve several delicious veggie wraps, quesadillas, and sandwiches (one even includes fried tofu). 2119 Young Ave. (278-0034).

Zaka Bowl — Totally vegan build-your-own-bowl restaurant!! Walk down the line, and pick a base (quinoa, rice, zucchini noodles, or spinach), a vegan protein, veggies, garnishes, and sauce. All gluten-free. All vegan. All delicious. 575 Erin Drive. (901-509-3105). 
 


Food Trucks

El Mero Taco - Taco truck with vegan options! Sometimes, they offer a seitan taco with chimichurri sauce (if you see it on the menu, get it!!!). But they typically always offer a vegetarian vegetable-based taco (like sweet potatoes or brussels sprouts) that can be veganized.

Fuel Taco Truck - Fuel Cafe's mobile sister truck. They offer vegan tacos made with Fuel's homemade burger patty, vegan cheese, and vegan sour cream. Add avocado for $1.

Hot Mess Burritos - Burrito truck with amazing vegan bean & veggie burritos. They make their own flour tortillas, and they're pretty much the best thing ever.

Raw Girls - Raw vegan food trucks!! These "trucks" are actually trailers, and they're parked in the same places all the time (one at Poplar/Yates and one at Cooper/Peabody). Awesome high raw meals (mung bean pasta, avocado toast with raw bread, raw taco salad with nut meat) and cold-pressed juices.

Sushi Jimmi — Sushi truck with veggie rolls and vegan spring rolls.

This list is amazing! I don't think I realized how many vegan options there were in Memphis?! Little Rock is so lame. haha! Definitely want to check some of these places out next time we are in town!

Debbie Gilbert said...

I am stunned at this dining guide. When I left Memphis in 1999, the dining scene was definitely not vegan-friendly and there were no all-vegetarian restaurants in town. Apparently a lot has changed! I will use your guide as a reference next time I'm visiting the city. Thanks for doing the research.

I am a new practicing vegan just learning the ropes. So far I have only eaten at home. Thanks for this list. There is just no excuse to not eat consciously and healthy!

I've lived here all my life and had no idea there were so many options for vegan dishes. Thank you for such an extensive list!

Hey! How's that South Indian place? (Flavors) I might recommend it to a friend in the area. I was last in Memphis in '98 and had some amazing, super crazy spicy Indian food, but the name of the place escapes me now.

tara said...

Hi Tara! I just sent you a response on your own blog, but for anyone else who sees this, there is a vegan/vegetarian social group in Memphis called Food Awareness. We meet once a month at veg-friendly places. Check out foodawareness.com for dates and times.

Hey,

Rizzo's diner in south main does vegan very uniquely and well...the stuffed avocado with quinoa is always on the menu. Each night the vegetarian special changes and if it isn't vegan the chef will make it so. If you call ahead and let him know you are vegan he will tailor a dish to your liking. We have people that come in and order 4 courses off the menu, all vegan, by request. So though we aren't a vegan restaurant, we happily cater to you and there are plenty of choices for the carnivorous. (:

Went to Trolley Stop last night, and they said they didn't carry vegan tortillas for the wraps. The pizza is still really good, but I love the wraps and was sad I couldn't have one.

Shannon said...

I'm vegan and work at Otherlands Coffee Bar, and just wanted to make an update - we no longer carry Daiya cheese for cheese toast, sadly :( Just regular old cheddar. Thankfully, we still have Earth Balance butter for things like cinnamon toast. :)

Bianca said...

Aw, thanks for the update Shannon! I will fix the listing. But damn, I'll miss that cheese toast. :-(

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Imagine...ate there back in November based on your recommendation and now it's the first place I go to when I come to Memphis. The new digs are a little different than the old but the food (and desserts) are just fabulous. Also ate at Fuel; had the vegan 'duck' spring rolls and peanut dipping sauce. EXCELLENT!! My friend gave me the Edible Memphis mag with your article as well. Life is good.

Kate said...

Thanks so much! My boyfriend and I are vegetarians, living in midtown. I also don't eat cow products. It's awesome that you took the time to write a restaurant guide. Its so hard to eat out sometimes on a no meat diet, we always end up going to the same places. Now I feel confident to branch out! So glad I happened upon your blog!

Glad to help, Kate!!

For all the activity and newsworthy developments in the U.S. oil and gas business, much is going on in the rest of the world which warrants monitoring’, says Shawn Bartholomae, CEO of Prodigy Oil and Gas of Irving, Texas. ‘The major players garner much of the attention and headlines and often smaller but significant developments get overlooked’

I went to Mosa Asian Bistro tonight and it was PERFECT. Great food, huge vegan selection, perfect service and my server knew exactly what was vegan and what wasn't! Thanks for sharing!

Cafe eclectic no longer offers the vegan pancakes and their black bean burger and veggie sausage are morningstar farms which contain egg.

I must say the blog post is just useful for everyone else reading it because the information and knowledge it contains is very important. I like the post! Excellent job! Keep sharing such valuable information through your blogs.

I am vegan and gluten free. It would be good to let us know which places have both vegan and gluten free items.

Bianca said...

Hey Arthur! That is a great suggestion. I'll try to add gluten-free tips when I know a place has gluten-free stuff. I'm not gluten-free myself, so I have to admit that I haven't paid much attention to that in local restaurants in the past. But I'll try to start!

It would be great to include a map of these restaurants on the page, so people who are living in (or visiting) a particular part of town can quickly see what is near them!

I ate a Seasons 52 the other night and instead of having to go into detail about how I need my food fixed since I am a vegan, they gave me a menu book that actually offers vegan options for their regular menu items. Not only vegan options, but those who have sodium and lactose problems had a menu. The food was great, the atmosphere was great, and it was not over-priced. Check it out!.

It's insane that Memphis has WAY more vegan options than Houston, a city of 5 million! I'm so jealous I might just move there. (This is LJ's BFF, Darla, BTW!)

I confirmed their guacamole and chips are vegan. Will inquire more, Jessica(manager I think) assured me the chips were not fried in lard and have a separate fryer. Real Mexican restaurant.

Concerning Casablanca, doesn't the falafel sandwich come with thousand island? I was told their thousand island had cream. Also, Los Comales needs a place on your guide! Their mushroom sopes are amazing (modified to be vegan of course) and they serve fresh juices like mango and jicama! I agree with the Rizzos comment as well. I believe their brunch curry tofu scramble is vegan. One more thing! I heard a rumor that bhan thai has removed fish sauce from their curries! You should verify that so we can all enjoy their panang :)
