Las Vegas might be the Sin City, but the folks in charge of the buffets and restaurants have become increasingly more accommodating in meeting the needs of vegans these days.
You might try the buffet at Caesars, even with the off-putting dead entirely laid out on the line, complete with the head. These days, they frequently feature a lot of gluten-free, vegetarian, and even vegan options, and they label these items for easy identification. At the Wynn buffet, they also a fair number of vegan options, and they’re labeled too.
But there are lots more vegan restaurants than you might think here at Las Vegas. If you’re determined to stay on your plant-based, no-dairy diet, then these are the restaurants you should gamble on—they’re a sure win for vegans!
This might just be the vegan restaurant in the whole city. It’s extremely popular, with a Yelp average of 4½ stars with more than 1800 reviews. They even use ingredients from local sources. They’re so meticulous about this that they offer locally sourced spirits, beers, teas, coffees, and even spices.
And if that’s not enough, their entire menu only features items that use purely plant-based ingredients. That’s true not just for the pseudo-meats, but also for the ice creams and cheeses.
For breakfast, start your day with the Badass Vegan Burrito. It features black beans, vegan chorizo, grilled veggies, and breakfast potatoes inside a tofu wrap. It’s extremely filling, so you won’t need a snack before lunch, either.
Speaking of lunch (or dinner, for that matter), try the Downtown Tony. This gets you a tasty blend of vegetable slaw and sriracha aioli on a portobello mushroom slider, and it’s served with fresh-cut French fries.
Even the kids might like the chicken nuggets here, even if they’re chicken-less.
They sure have a lot of raw dishes here, and vegans have lots of options. You might be surprised at just how many dishes a vegan might enjoy here, if you’re used to the meager offerings for vegans in most restaurants.
Try the green enchiladas, as they’re made with vegan “beef”. Then you also have sauteed onions, zucchini, and peppers, and everything’s all wrapped in a corn tortilla. Finally, it’s smothered with the homemade green chili sauce con queso, scallions, sour cream, and pico de gallo.
The Jicama Chili Cheese Fries are also fantastic. Here you get seasoned raw jicama fries, whicha re then topped with scallions, cheddar cheese sauce, and pico de gallo.
If you’re not sure what else to get, go with the Ultimate Sampler. This plate gets you terrific vegan tacos, the zucchini pasta, nachos, chicken salad lettuce wraps, and the chili cheese fries.
