The best place to eat in Indy for vegans!

Their menu marks the VEGAN options, not just the vegetarian dishes. That is so rare and so exciting to a vegan who is used to sifting through a menu only to find one "choice" which then isn't even a choice at all!

Everything I've ever eaten here has been amazing, tasty, unique, and not something I would have thought to put together and make at home. I love finding not just great vegan food at a restaurant, but great vegan food IDEAS that I can take home with me.

3 Sisters makes me so, so happy.

Their vegan dolmades are delicious!

Last time I was there the vegan shepherd's pie was no longer listed on the menu, but perhaps you can still get it by request.

There are still plenty of vegan options however, plus some very good beer.

The waitstaff are happily willing to help a vegan find yummy food on or off the menu. They have plenty of vegan-friendly vegetable sushi too.

Yats in Indianapolis, Indiana

I don't understand why so many people love Yats. Like many other restaurants, vegetarians are treated as an afterthought. Vegans are barely considered at all.

For anyone who loves the earth, Yats is also appalling due to their overabundant use of styrofoam. Plates and cups could be paper and recyclable, but Yats continues to use styrofoam.

The few times I've been forced to eat at Yats, my friends suggested it because they have a vegan-friendly chili. However, this is nothing I could not make myself, and better tasting, at home. I don't like paying to eat something I am perfectly capable of making to suit my own taste and then eating it out of styrofoam to boot. Tsk, tsk, shame on you Yats.

Before I was vegan I had a vegetarian dish which committed the ultimate sin of vegetarian cuisine. Like other restaurants who simply don't understand how to make tasty meat-free food, the Yats powers-that-be decided to overload the dish with red pepper. There are other ways to flavor a cajun meat-free meal than with red pepper. It was completely overpowering and made the meal "blandly hot," if you understand what I mean.

I really, really don't like Yats. It could be so much more.

I stopped in because the sign out front said they had a special of vegan lasagna. It was perfect with cashew cheese, daiya "cheese" topping, and zucchini instead of pasta for the layers. Only thing that would make it better is if it were a constant offering instead of a special!

On first visit I had the vegan quesadilla because I wanted to experience their nut "cheese." It was spicy as indicated on the menu, but the salsa and topping of avocado were the perfect compliments to keep the dish from being too hot to enjoy. On second visit I tried the vegan biscuits and gravy. I expected something delicious though not very nutritious. Happily, I was wrong. This is not a carb coma biscuit and gravy. Instead of a plain flour gravy, this is a mushroom gravy. Also the biscuits are served on an ample bed of sauteed chard, kale, sweet potatoes, onion, and white potatoes. Can't wait to go back a third time to try the vegan Reuben!
