Chipotle in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Apr 12 04

rating star

Get your vegetarian burrito with guacamole, skip the dairy, and then drench it with green Tabasco. It's some of the best Mexican out there, if not particularly authentic. Chipotle is quick (at off-peak times) and is a pretty good value as well.

As I understand it, McDonald's has a minority share in Chipotle, but does not own it.

Holy Land Deli in Twin Cities, Minnesota

Don't miss their legendary baba ghanouj! I recommend trying the vegetarian plate, which includes the baba ghanouj, falafel, hummus, pitas, and stuffed grape leaves.

While waiting for your order, step into the grocery area and pick up some fresh bread to take home. There are a few varities here that aren't distributed to the natural foods shops.

Kinh Do in Twin Cities, Minnesota

The best Vietnamese vegan food in the Twin Cities I've tried so far. The extensive vegetarian menu includes many treats for lovers of mock dock and tofu. In particular, the Mock Dock and Potatoes are incredible, and something of a legend in the local vegan community.

Tibet's Corner in Twin Cities, Minnesota

The comment about this place being "not for vegetarians" is incorrect. The menu has an entire vegetarian section, in which most (if not all) of the dishes are vegan. The "house special" momos with vegetables and peanut butter are delicious.

Triple Rock Social Club in Twin Cities, Minnesota

I once didn't think much of the Triple Rock's food, but that all changed when I tried the Louisiana Po' Boy. Wow. That is one hearty, finger-lickin' vegan meal and a half. The happy hour is enticing, too.

The Wedge Co-op in Twin Cities, Minnesota
Apr 12 04

rating star

The Wedge's concern for organic issues far surpasses its concern for animals. There is a disgustingly large meat department, yet they refuse to carry some vegan cheeses due to non-organic ingredients. It's not that I don't support their position on organics, but their position on animal products should be just as strong. If they justify the sale of organic meat with the argument that meat-eaters will be exposed to more ethical foods, they should do the same for non-organic vegan products.

It's unfortunate that all of the natural foods shops in the Twin Cities appear to sell meat -- in Britain, for example, few (if any) do.

Still, the Wedge does continue to carry a number of hard-to-find vegan products.

Sanchon in Seoul, South Korea
Jun 3 06

rating star

This lovely all-vegan restaurant is tucked away at the end of a winding alley off of the main street of the Insadong area. You do not order from a menu -- rather, each person gets a set meal of 10-15 small bowls of various vegetables and mushrooms. The food is delicious and the atmosphere terrific. The interior is mostly polished wood, with a stage in the center featuring drummers and dancers. For a special night, it is worth the somewhat high price.
