Vegan food in Portland and Seattle
I will soon be visiting Portland, OR and Seattle, WA for the first times, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any good vegan (doesn't have to be all vegan) restaurants in either of those places. I have heard that both cities have tons of great vegetarian restaurants and I don't know where to begin! Please let me know if you have any suggestions....
And if anyone is ever in the San Francisco area I'd be happy to give recommendations!
If you're going to Seattle, there is a vegan doughnut place in the university district. when i was home (Seattle) for winter break i wanted to go but it was closed when we went to go.
but both Portland and Seattle have lots of vegan places. i haven't been to a lot of them and no names pop into my head, but it's aways good stuff. then again, there are no vegan places in albany so I'm bias.
I just moved to Portland 2 days ago so I have limited advice, but I've been to the Paradox and they have a lot of vegan friendly options. From what I understand there are lots of options in the Portland area. Check this site out: http://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/oregon/portland/index.html
Check out Food Fight Grocery (http://www.foodfightgrocery.com) in Portland, OR. They are an all-vegan grocery store. Helpful for buying snacks, etc. or if you are able to cook your own food.
Their address is:
4179 SE Division St
Try Veg Seattle's website (http://www.vegseattle.com)--they have tons of listings for vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the area.
I've never been to either city, but now I want to go after seeing all of the great restaurants!
Unfortunately, I don't know much about Portland other than I have a great time visiting, but I've been living in SF for about 7 months and LOVE it. If you haven't been there, ther's an awesome new place in the Marina called "lettuce". It's all organic and 75% of their food is vegan. Sooo good! I also frequent "Herbivore" on Divisidero, but that's about it. What are some of your faves?
I live in the Marina, so Lettuce is a great go to for me. I think you'd dig it. They have the best Quinoa bowl ever!
I FORGOT ABOUT MILLENIUM! You're right about the price, but it is well worth it. I've had some of my favorite meals there. I bought the cookbooks too, but there is no way I could ever make anything out of them... way to complicated. I'll leave that to the chefs.
I haven't ever been to the Rainbow grocery. I don't have a car but I bet I could sweet talk my boyfriend into driving me if I promise him a good meal.
Please go on... what are some of your other favs?
