Vegan-friendly Chi-town


I’ll be heading to Chicago in May with my wife for a certain somebody‘s wedding, and as with any visit to a new town, I like to plan ahead. One of the most enjoyable parts of planning a trip is looking at what restaurants are available and regular people’s opinions on them. Today, via , I stumbled upon Vegan in Chicago which covers not only strictly vegetarian restaurants in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, but eateries that serve very good vegan dishes as part of a “regular” menu. It looks to be nice and thorough and I can’t wait to try some of these places out.

Any favorites among Chicago-based readers that you can share?

Update: Marla of Vegan Street pointed me towards their Vegan Dining in Chicago feature, whichis chock full of reviews of veggie-only restaurants. Thanks, Marla!

    j3n’s list has got all the good places, except for several of the other Indian restaurants along Devon which tend to change around alot. Blind Faith in Evanston, a suburb just north of Chicago, Chicago Diner are good but the Ethiopian Cafe is awesome.

    Enjoy Chicago while you’re here!

    SO I know I’m posting after the fact (like 2 years later) but I noticed no one mentioned Alice and Friends. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Chicago Diner (great gyro, seitanic caesar salad, and amazing chocolate chip cookie dough vegan “milk” shakes, mmm), but ALice and Friends is a great vegetarian Korean restaurant. I had vegetarian Korean bbq and a great vegan lychee fruit shake. Cookies were also very tasty. Very Vegan friendly and reasonably priced. Oh another good place, is Myosore (spelling?) Woodlands, a vegetarian Indian restaurant. Great idly and dosa mmmm, vegan friendly of course!

    A NEW 100% VEGAN restaurant just opened on the south side of Chicago. The food was delicious I wouldn’t be lying if I said I was slightly addicted. They have an awesome vibe I just love
    it. The restaurant is a fast service type of a place so you can eat healthy on the move.
