South Beach: Vegan Restaurant Review

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is not a place that is super vegan-friendly, surprisingly. But you can manage to find a few places on the island which serve vegan eats! One of these places is South Beach, located around milepost 13.5 between the bypass road and the beach road in the Surfside Plaza shoppingContinue reading “South Beach: Vegan Restaurant Review”

Pizza and Beer of Richmond (Hanover): Vegan Restaurant Review

After a long day of work for me on a Saturday, and with nothing to cook that made the omnivores in my life happy, we decided to venture out for dinner. My daughter had a craving for Mexican food, but I had another idea. I’d heard from vegan and non-vegan friends that PBR Richmond isContinue reading “Pizza and Beer of Richmond (Hanover): Vegan Restaurant Review”

Devil’s Lettuce: Vegan Restaurant Review

How exciting that the far West End of Richmond has a new all-vegan restaurant! If you read my earlier review of Hurley’s Tavern, this is the vegan comfort food kitchen they built in front of Hurley’s dining room.  The brainchild of chef Janice Rossano, pictured with me above, she’s been envisioning a space like thisContinue reading “Devil’s Lettuce: Vegan Restaurant Review”

North Street Press Club: Vegan Restaurant Review

While Farmville, Virginia may not be on anyone’s top 10 list of vegan friendly communities, it is the home of Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College. With my older daughter at Longwood, I have found a few places with vegan options in town, the North Street Press Club being one example.  My younger daughter and IContinue reading “North Street Press Club: Vegan Restaurant Review”

When touring college campuses, it’s customary to sample the local cuisine! On our recent visit to Virginia Tech, my daughter and I stopped in to India Garden for lunch.

On the agenda this summer are multiple tours of Virginia universities as my younger daughter contemplates her choices entering her senior year of high school.

AContinue reading “Baba Ganoush Mediterranean Grill: Vegan Restaurant Review”

Hurley’s Tavern: Vegan Restaurant Review

This unassuming pub is nestled in a strip mall in Innsbrook on the West End of Henrico. I first heard about it on the RVA Vegans Facebook page, so I decided I needed to check it out at some point. Last weekend, my daughter wanted to go out for lunch, so we hit up Hurley’sContinue reading “Hurley’s Tavern: Vegan Restaurant Review”

The Silver Diner: Vegan Restaurant Review: Update

You may recall that I wrote a review of my regional favorite, The Silver Diner, sometime last year. With multiple vegan menu items, a plant-based diner may be faced with the unfathomable conundrum of having to make a choice about what to order, a rare dilemma, indeed.  Since writing that review, the Silver Diner hasContinue reading “The Silver Diner: Vegan Restaurant Review: Update”

Pho 95 Hai Ky Mi Gia: Vegan Restaurant Review

My daughter needed new shoes. Like, seriously. Her feet were on fire from standing up all day at a robotics competition the day before, where she was co-lead for building and driving the bot. (They won, by the way, for the first time in her school’s history!) But her poor feet just needed something withContinue reading “Pho 95 Hai Ky Mi Gia: Vegan Restaurant Review”

Minglewood Bake Shop: Vegan Restaurant Review

There’s nothing quite like the joy a vegan experiences when they visit an all vegan space! Remember my reference to the new vegan bakery in Carytown from my recent post about the rungries? This is the bakery I was talking about! Minglewood Bake Shop is in the heart of Carytown in Richmond, VA. Carytown isContinue reading “Minglewood Bake Shop: Vegan Restaurant Review”
