New York, NY
vegan-friendly Egyptian-Middle Eastern restaurant
Cafe Rakka is a small cafe in the East Village offering a substantial amount of vegan items. The cafe is very small, with only 2 or 3 tables inside (more outside when the weather permits), so they do a lot of take out.
Vegan menu items include falafel, hummus, babaganush, stuffed grape leaves, tabouli, fava bean salad, cous cous, mujadarra (fluffy cracked wheat and lentils), and rice w/ vermicelli. Most of these items are around $3.50 and they have combos for $4.50 (falafel and tabuli, falafel and hummus, etc).
Vegetarian combo platters are $7-10 and include different combinations of the above items.
Note that there is a $10 minimum for credit cards.
