I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to get vegan food in Vegas on or near "the strip" or the Fremont Street area. I went last year and the only places that had a decent selection were pretty far away (cabs are expensive there). Thanks......

I'm copying a long post I made elsewhere after visiting Vegas. Unfortunately there aren't many options but maybe this will help.<br><br><br><br>
WILD OATS MARKET & CAFE<br><br>
7250 W. Lake Mead Blvd, Las Vegas, NV, 89128<br><br>
PHONE: 702-942-1500<br><br>
HOURS (LUNCH & DINNER): 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.<br><br>
HOURS (MARKET): 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.<br><br><br><br>
Health food stores are my Disneyland. Though most stores are independent, companies like Wild Oats are bringing health foods to the mainstream. Wild Oats is the same size and has the same general set-up as regular grocery stores, only the food is organic, the medicines are alternative, and the shampoo is natural.<br><br><br><br>
The Cafe serves all organic food; not all of the food is vegan, but there are still plenty of options. The food is served deli-style; you can either take it to go, or you can sit down in the store to eat. Choices include vegetarian, bean, millet and meat burritos, macaroni salad, Marci's potato salad and Sharon's pasta salad, plus an assortment of veggie drinks and fruit smoothies. There is something for everybody here, and prices are on the low end.<br><br><br><br>
THE RAW TRUTH<br><br>
3620 E. Flamingo Road<br><br>
Las Vegas, Nevada 89121<br><br>
PHONE: 702-450-9007<br><br>
HOURS: Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.<br><br><a href="http://www.living-foods.com/articles/lasvegas.html/" target="_blank">http://www.living-foods.com/articles/lasvegas.html/</a><br><br><br><br>
The raw food movement goes beyond veganism; raw foodists are so called because they eat no food that is cooked above a certain temperature. They eat this way for the health benefits, not because they feel sorry for plants, by the way (in fact, some people eat raw meat). Though I am not a raw foodist myself, all food served The Raw Truth is 100% vegan, so my family and I decided to try it. Now, I love fresh vegetables, but my family would rather eat pizza and wings, so The Raw Truth was quite an adventure for them. The Raw Truth serves traditional dishes like meat loaf, pasta, lasagna, bread, and pizza - only the ingredients are primarily vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Dishes that normally require cooking are prepared using a dehydrator (all of the food is safe to eat because there are no animal products in the ingredients). If you are not used to raw cuisine, I suggest starting with something familiar, like nori rolls, tabouli, cookies, salad, and fresh juice.<br><br><br><br>
RAINBOW'S END NATURAL FOODS<br><br>
1100 East Sahara Avenue<br><br>
Las Vegas, NV 89104<br><br>
PHONE: 702-737-7282<br><br>
HOURS: Monday - Friday 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.<br><br><br><br>
Rainbow's End is both a health food store and a cafe. Boca, black bean, and gardenburgers, mock egg salad, tortillas, sandwiches, veggie lasagna, stir fry, and fresh-squeezed juices are just a few of the menu items. Prices at the health food store are slightly higher than Wild Oats, but prices at the cafe are about the same as Wild Oats' deli. The food is all vegetarian; even so, my non-veg family enjoyed it.<br><br><br><br>
MEDITERRANEAN CAFE<br><br>
4147 S. Maryland Parkway<br><br>
Las Vegas, Nevada 89119<br><br>
PHONE: 702-731-6030<br><br>
HOURS (MARKET): Monday - Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.<br><br>
HOURS (RESTAURANT): Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Monday - Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.<br><br><a href="http://www.medcafe-market.com/" target="_blank">http://www.medcafe-market.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
Entree prices range from $8.95 - $10.95; most sandwiches are $6.95. Vegan dishes include tabouli salad, fresh salas, hummus, baba ganosh, falafel pita, stuffed grape leaves, combination plate, falafel plate, and various beverages, including at least two dozen different teas. Vegetarians who eat cheese have more options. While the Mediterranean Cafe does not have as many vegan options as I thought they would, I would eat there again. It is a good choice for fans of ethnic food, and for groups with both vegetarians and meat-eaters. Reservations are accepted. The Mediterranean also has a store selling ethnic foods on the premises, and they cater as well.<br><br><br><br>
BACIO ORGANICO<br><br>
This restaurant's specialty is Italian food, made only with organic ingredients. Recent advertisements stated that they serve vegetarian and vegan dishes. But when I called to confirm this, I was informed that the restaurant is now under new management and no longer has vegetarian dishes. I could not review this restaurant; I am including it here to let people know that the advertisements are out of date.<br><br><br><br>
New vegetarians and vegans quickly learn to be self-reliant when it comes to feeding themselves. In a veggie-unfriendly city like Las Vegas, you cannot count on having something to eat, so creativity is necessary if you don't want to go hungry. None of the above restaurants is on the Strip, so I suggest bringing snacks with you if you plan on spending the day or evening there. Happy eating!
