Vegan Cheese Steaks at Horns – Bethlehem, PA

If you live in southeastern PA you know that Bethlehem is home to our beloved Vegan Treats, and it’s slowly gaining vegan momentum. One of the newer eateries in town to add vegan offering on their menu is Horns. Horns specializes in local and organic comfort foods and now has an ever growing list of vegan offerings, thanks to chef Amber. I had heard about Horns’ becoming vegan-friendly last year, but was a bit reluctant to enjoy a meal there because of the taxidermy... Read More

Restaurant Review: Silver Diner

In August we were driving down to Wilmington, NC and were looking for a place to eat half way down for a break and food. Earlier I had read an article about how the Silver Diner was going to add a vegan shake to their menu. There are 15 Silver Diners in Maryland, Virginia, and New Jersey. We stopped at the Potomac Mills Silver Diner in Dale City, VA, which close to 95. #gallery-3 { margin: auto; } #gallery-3 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top:... Read More

Restaurant Review – Ithaca, NY

Mauro and I have been wanting to go to Toronto for several years now, for several reasons —it’s extremely veg-friendly, there are some amazing farmers markets with yummy artisanal eats, it’s the host to the largest Veg Fest in North America (3 whole days of vegan demos, speakers and vendors), because we just love Canadia and Toronto is only an 8-hour drive from us. So we packed up our camper (more on vegan camping on Mauro’s post, coming soon) and headed out.... Read More

Restaurant Review: Asian vegan options in Southeastern PA

Lydia and I love Asian food. I, in particular, would happily eat Chinese food every day of the week. So, of course, having good vegan options when it comes to Asian food is very important to us. Fortunately, finding vegan food in Asian restaurants is usually not too difficult. Any neighborhood Chinese restaurant, for example, will have a selection of vegetable and tofu dishes and some will even have “mock” beef and chicken dishes made with seitan. Here are some good... Read More

Review: Steak And Hoagie Factory in Doylestown, PA

OMNOMNOM We got word from a friend that the Steak And Hoagie Factory in Doylestown is now offering a vegan steak hoagie, so Lydia and I met there for lunch a couple of days ago to try it out. The kid that was taking our order wasn’t too happy and seemed to be really pissed off at us for asking questions, rolling his eyes and sounding exasperated — it was a real turn-off and we actually thought about cancelling our order and leaving. The older guy at the grill, however,... Read More

Restaurant Review – Honey, Doylestown, PA

(Apologies for the crummy pics, we forgot our camera and had to rely on our camera phone. Onward and upward!) One of our favorite local restaurants when we were vegetarians is Honey in Doylestown, PA. It was just one of those sad stories, we loved their food but they don’t do vegan, or so we thought. We used to dine there somewhat frequently when we were vegetarians but stopped going altogether when we became vegan. Most of their dishes contain some sort of meat or dairy,... Read More

Montclair, NJ – Lightly Vegan

Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant Last month we went to Montclair , NJ to see Gene Baur speak and to meet more fellow vegans. It’s a charming little town with a budding vegan movement. Montclair Vegans, the group that organized Gene’s speaking event, is shaking things up with several vegan events a month. If you’re in the area join their group and join in the fun. While Montclair doesn’t have its own all vegan restaurant yet, Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant does a... Read More

Jules Thin Crust Pizza – More Vegan Flavors

We all have our favorite lunch spots, be it pizza or sandwich place or even a Chinese restaurant. My favorite spot when I was a vegetarian was Jules Thin Crust. Jules has the best thin crust pizza, losing only to authentic thin crusts in Italy IMHO, made from mostly organic and local ingredients and toppings. It was my favorite lunch spot because they have so many flavors to choose from by the slice, it’s just pick up and go or choose a slice or two and enjoy the rest of... Read More
