“Sin City” has a plethora of vegan options to choose from both on and off the strip. Much like everything else in Vegas, you can have any experience you want! There are options for fast food and quick dining all the way up to fine dining and specialty experiences. Looking for a recommendation? Check out the Ultimate Vegan Guide to Las Vegas, NV.
Terrace Pointe Cafe
If you’re going to go anywhere in Las Vegas, make it Terrace Pointe Cafe. The Wynn and Encore hotels have a full vegan menu at every single one of their restaurants and Terrace Pointe Cafe has THE BEST vegan chicken and waffles in the United States. The chicken is breaded and fried to crispy perfection, then served atop a scallion waffle, and comes with a side of both regular syrup and spicy syrup. Drown it in the vegan butter and spicy syrup and you’re well on your way to one of the most enjoyable dining experiences you can have. They also offer a vegan omelet made with the JUST egg, which is fantastic. If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, try the Caesar salad with Gardein chick’n strips. Hands down our favorite brunch in the US!
Chef Kenny’s Asian Cuisine
Of all of the restaurants available in Las Vegas, Chef Kenny’s has some of the most unique vegan items on their menu. Dishes such as Chilean Sea Bass, Curry Duck, and Veggie Geese all are present but in 100% vegan form. The menu is rather extensive but there are also rotating specials such as the medium-rare steak roll which is made out of Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger. It sounds odd and looks a little off-putting, but it is something that you cannot miss if it’s on the menu. They have some of the best sushi rolls in town!
Pancho’s Vegan Tacos
Having some of the best vegan tacos in America is a tough title to hold, but Pancho’s is definitely a contender. With traditional Mexican cuisine ranging from tamales to enchiladas to nachos, there’s something for everyone. They have a wide array of vegan proteins such as al pastor, carne asada, chorizo, and nopales to choose from. Hit them up on Taco Tuesday and get a fantastic deal!
You have to drive a bit off the strip to get to either of their locations, but it is well worth the trip. While the buffalo cauliflower wings didn’t make The Best Vegan Buffalo Wings in the US list, they are still a fantastic appetizer to start with. Check out their chicken pot pie gnocchi, which is smothered in a house-made creamy herb sauce with chicken, peas, carrots, and mushrooms before being topped with pie crust crumbles. Their pizza is a fantastic take-home dish and reheats well if you end up ordering too much!
Located inside of the Encore Casino, Wazuzu has a fantastic vegan menu available. Definitely start out with one of their dim sums such as their Gardein potstickers or spinach and shiitake dumplings. From there you have many traditional items such as fried rice, pad thai, and drunken noodles. Don’t worry about saving room for dessert unless you are a fan of sorbet, but this means you can fill up on dim sum!
There’s nothing about Ronald’s that lets you know they have vegan options, but the entire top two rows of donuts are all vegan. They have all of the classics too- glazed, creme-filled, apple fritters, and more. You can also pick up a dozen donut holes for just a dollar! Make sure you bring cash though as they are a cash-only shop.
Located inside of the Wynn Casino, Wing Lei offers a more fine-dining Asian cuisine experience. You’ll definitely want to make a reservation as they can book up in advance and will sometimes close for private events. Their Mapo Tofu has such an incredible flavor you’ll wish you had more of it. It is a little spicy though, in case that’s an issue. Their menu is very heavy on the mushrooms but they do offer a few dishes that do not have them.
Tucked just off the strip between the MGM Grand and New York New York, Beerhaus is a hidden little gem packed full of craft beers and a few quick vegan bites on their menu. If you’re looking for a bite to eat while walking the strip, this is the place to go! Their vegan chipotle dog comes topped with vegan mayo and tomato jam while their vegan city dog is spicy mustard, kraut, and relish. Not feeling the dogs? They have the Impossible Burger available complete with vegan cheese! Plan to spend a little time here, as you can entertain yourself with one of their many board games or life-sized Jenga sets.
Lucy Ethiopian Restaurant
Looking for something a bit different? Head on over to Lucy Ethiopian Restaurant where you can get their veggie plate with 7 different vegan options for just $12.99! Take someone with you because that is enough food for two people. You can’t miss the shiro as it is some of the best-tasting food you’ll ever try!
While there aren’t a ton of vegan options at Hofbrauhaus, the experience alone is worth the trip there. Being a traditional German/Bavarian beer hall, you can expect the beers to be as large as the portions and that rings true here. The vegan schnitzel is one of the better dishes on their vegan menu but they also have vegan frankfurters smothered in a curry sauce. If you’re feeling extra frisky, get the shot and spank combo, where you take a shot and get a good whack on your bum with a giant paddle. It’s all in good fun!
Hussong’s Cantina is located inside of the Shoppes at Mandalay Place and is tucked back off the beaten path. But their fish tacos are definitely a reason for you to go hunting for them. The amount of flavor that they are able to stuff into those little corn tortillas will have you reaching for the next one while you’re still chewing the last bite. They have other traditional options as well such as enchiladas, burritos, and chimichangas, but you have to try the fish tacos!
Tacotarian claims to have the “Largest Selection of Vegan Tacos in the Universe!” They have an extensive list of plant-based ‘meats’ like traditional carne asada, al pastor, and barbacoa, but also more unique items like plantains with mole. Not in the mood for tacos? Try one of their other menu items like cauliflower ceviche or flautas or come for a brunch that will blow you away. Make sure to try the soyrizo breakfast bowl or the chilaquiles. You won’t be left out if you’re gluten-free, they have a whole separate GF menu!
Blackout Dining in the Dark
If you’re a fan of dining experiences, then you must check out Blackout Dining in the Dark. The entire restaurant is plant-based, so there’s no need to worry about whether or not your meal is vegan. The experience is exactly as it sounds, you check-in and are led through a pitch-black dining room to your seat. Your waiter will explain how the table is arranged so that you can understand where your fork, knife, glasses, etc… are. Each dish is explained thoroughly as to how you should eat it, what the dish feels like, but you won’t actually know what the ingredients are. When you lose one of your senses the rest of them become heightened and even the simplest of ingredients become phenomenal. When you finish up, check out the menu and see how close you were to guessing what you ate! This is a fantastic experience that everyone must enjoy at least once while in Vegas.
