Most certainly. I'm so looking forward to eating with other veg heads.

10 S. LaSalle Street. My other post says N. LaSalle but that's not right. Don't know what I was thinking there.

There's a taco chain at LaSalle and North Ave that's very yummy and veg friendly, called Taco Fresco, too.



*hugs* thanks so much. I'll have my usual snacks with me but something substantial would be great.

Ooh...if you're on S Lasalle, there's this place called Oasis cafe, just a few blocks away that's yummy too. It's in the back of a jewelry store (for real), but they have wicked Middle Eastern food. carnelian turned me on to it. She works not too far from there, and there's another place she really likes too, but I can't remember the name, they have deli sort of food.

Definitely check out the spa cafe on 112 W Monroe. Plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.

And...I can't believe no one has mentioned The Pick Me Up Cafe. Seriously, if you've not eaten breakfast here at least once, you've not lived.



I Second the vote for The Pick-Me-Up!!! I eat there so much because it's so good! I actually just ate lunch there today- vegan "Humboldt Park" tofu scramble. And I'm not sure when was the last time any of you were there, but they added to their menu. They now have a falafel wrap, buffalo tofu bites, vegan mac and cheese, and a vegan tostadas dinner.



The Chicago Diner is great, you just have to know what's good! I love the shakes/desserts and breakfasts, and the Portobello Chick'n Wrap, Super Gyros, Fajitas, and a few of the seitan sandwiches are really amazing. The Breaded Tofu Cutlets and a few of the other dinners there are good as well.



Other places- Aryah Bhavan (Indian Buffet) Dharma Garden (Thai) Soul Vegetarian East (Soul food) and Victory's Banner are all 100% vegetarian places I love! As Nickles said, Andie's veg food (Middle Eastern) is amazing, and I also love Ras Dashen (Ethiopian). Blind Faith, Karen's Cooked, and Alice and Friends are all pretty good too. I used to go to Earwax when I went to shows at the Double Door, and I liked them.



I've heard how amazing Sultan's market is, but have never been there.... I took Nickles to a place called Sinbad's for falafels, and it was great.



I've heard mixed reviews of the new Veggie Bite but would like to try it!



Ok, I'm gonna stop, I'm making myself hungry again!

Not that I know of, but you can get vegan sushi in the food court of Macy's on State Street...it is located on the lower level on a corner between the deli and green salad counters. I work a couple of blocks from there and have had it many times.



Here are a few options...you'll have to look at the menus to see what the offerings are. You could also make a special request...the same as you might at any other restaurant. Most places are pretty accommodating.

I'm going to be going to Aryah Bhavan on Saturday to meetup with the Vegan Chicago group. I enjoy Indian cuisine, so it should be fun.



And yes, Soul Vegetarian East is delicious. I enjoy getting their daily special every time I go. SVE has found so many good ways to make old favorites into veggie delights. Their desserts are especially delicious, such as the lemon "cream" pie and sweet potato pie. YUM!
