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!
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?
