Thanks for the recommendations! Nope, never been to Gainesville. Good to know that it's veg friendly, in case I ever make it up that way.
I live on Miami Beach, so most of my favorite places to eat are here.
Guru is an Indian restaurant just off of Washington and .. 12th I believe. They have several dishes that can be made vegan, but their best is their channa masala.
Hakaan Turkish Grill is right next to the Whole Foods on Alton (formerly Wild Oats
), They have really good hummus and red lentil soup. Good for quick take out when I'm too lazy to cook (it's only 3 blocks from where I live).
The Pita Hut on 41st street is good. Kosher, middle eastern type food. We usually get the jumbo platter, minus the baba ganoush (has eggs in it) - this is a big plate of hummus, tahini, falafel, stuffed grape leaves, turkish salad, etc, served with pita.
Pizza Rustica on Lincoln road makes great vegan pizza! Lots of amazing toppings not usually found in pizza places. Books & Books is also on Lincoln road and has several vegetarian and vegan options. They recently added a vegan chicken sandwich that is pretty good.
Daily Bread Market place in Coconut Grove is really tasty, good hummus, tabouleh, best falafel in town! We usually only go there when we go to the Glaser Farmer's Market
since they're fairly close to each other (and way out of our way for anything else
Of course, I do have to mention Sublime
even though it is in Fort Lauderdale. Definitely worth the trip. We haven't been up there in a while though, I think we're due to go again
We should definitely meet up some time. My fiance is always complaining that we don't socialize enough
Are you a member of any of the south florida meetup groups on meetup.com? We are but it seems like there's always a reason why we can't go to the meetups.
ETA: There's also this little health food store at 5138 Biscayne Blvd called the Honey Tree. We used to go there for lunch from time to time. Homemade meals, mostly vegan (sometimes they would use cheese). I don't know if they're still open, the last couple of times we drove by the place seemed to be boarded up. It has strange hours though, so maybe they just do that when closed for security purposes.
