Variety for Vegans

Plant Based Paradise

Mon, 28th Sep 2015

We've all got at least one vegan friend, right? Maybe you've always wanted to go vegan but you figured there aren't any good dining joint options. After all, many vegan restaurants claim, "you won't miss the meat." These dining joints in San Diego County are not just vegan-friendly; they actually have tasty culinary delights that go beyond the ordinary tofu meals. So go ahead and make your vegan friend happy, after all, this friend puts up with your eclectic, meat-based food tastes too. Check out these vegan-friendly dining joints in San Diego, you just might convert to the other side of the culinary dining world.

Hill Street Cafe and Gallery - 524 S. Coast Highway, Oceanside
Located in a historical landmark building, the Hill Street Cafe and Gallery in Oceanside is not a 100% vegan restaurant, but more than makes up for it with plenty of vegan-friendly options such as the Yammin, a sweet and tasty dish jammin' with the flavor of roasted organic yams/sweet potatoes filled with roasted veggies. Try the Vegan Surf and Turf featuring Grilled Portabello Mushroom, Cajun Tofu Steak with stir-fry veggies and brown rice. Wine and Beer is served, so feel free to drink a local craft beer with your meal and check out the local art gallery and espresso bar afterwards.

Veggilish - 1146 7th Ave, Downtown San Diego
Veggilish is absolutely Delish! Try the mock chicken bowl and you'll be stunned by the crispy mock chicken, a bowl of crispy "chicken" that will leave you in disbelief that you're not noshing on real chicken - it's finger licking good! The salmon bowl is just as good and the large portion of food includes your choice of quinoa, pasta, and veggie options such as beetroot, broccoli, carrot, cauliflower, corn, potato and zucchini. The bummer: this Downtown San Diego dining joint is only open from 11 - 3pm, Monday to Friday.

Loving Hut - 9928 Mira Mesa Blvd, Scripps Mesa
All items on the menu at The Loving Hut in Scripps Mesa are 100% Vegan, and this all vegan menu is quite extensive with the tasty food options. One bite of the Wild West Burger and you'll forget you're actually biting into a soy patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, vegan strips, onion rings, and BBQ sauce all sandwiched between a toasted sesame bun. The Steak Soft Tacos with soy steak protein, onions, tomatoes and cilantro satisfies that Taco Tuesday craving, any day of the week. Taste the vegan love at three locations in San Diego - Ladera Ranch, University Heights and Scripps Mesa

Peace Pies - 4230 Voltaire Street, Ocean Beach
For a slice of Vegan-heaven, make your way over to Peace Pies. Peace Pies, has two locations in notable "hippie-vibe" San Diego beach towns - Ocean Beach and Encinitas. Winners of the 2014 Best of Raw Awards for Best Raw Restaurant and Best Eco-Raw Restaurant in San Diego, Peace Pies practices what they preach by utilizing farm fresh, local ingredients to create tasty Raw/Vegan, Gluten/Soy-free foods on their decent sized menu. Try favorites like the Peace Pizza, a tasty pizza with marinated veggies, marinara & cheese on top of a sunflower seed crust. The Voltaire Street Tacos pay homage to that legendary, funky Ocean Beach Street with tender green leaf taco shells filled with walnut meat, guacamole, salsa & cheese.
