If you’re plant-based, or looking for meatless Monday perfection. NOLA’s got you covered!
No matter the reason, all of us should be cutting down on our meat consumption! That transition can be super tricky with all the delicious foods of the South on offer across Louisiana. Luckily, New Orleans’ plant based scene has seen a dramatic change in scenery over recent years, and it’s never been a more perfect time to be vegan in NOLA.
From unbelievable burgers, to tasty health food hotspots. The Big Easy has got it all. We’re going to be breaking down some of our favorite plant-based restaurants in the city.
Here’s 10 of our favorite vegan and vegan-friendly eateries in NOLA:
1. Sweet Soulfood
If you’re vegan and missing that authentic soul food that NOLA’s famous for, then you’re in luck! Sweet Soulfood is the perfect spot to try out plant-based alternatives to Southern cuisine staples. You have to leave with this place with a tub of vegan ice-cream. The flavors are insane!
2. Max Well New Orleans
Awesome vegan comfort food is available at this Magazine Street gem. Three blocks from Audobon Park, have a post-park lunch at this plant-based paradise. We recommend getting the gyoza and make sure you grab a smoothie to-go before you pay the check!
