3 Local Vegan Restaurants to Try Tonight

Whether you feel like Egyptian, Italian or Japanese, there is a vegan option for you that is close to home

By Melissa Gill

One of the greatest things about Las Vegas is that there are so many different places to eat—including a growing number of restaurants that cater to vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free patrons. Diana Edelman, Las Vegas’ vegan queen and creator of Vegans Baby, shares some of her top suggestions on where to eat vegan off the Strip.


POTs was listed as one of Yelp’s “Top 100 Places to Eat in 2019” and whether you’re vegan or not, this restaurant serves delicious nutritious food. POTs also happens to be the only Egyptian restaurant in town. Edelman loves everything here; however, she always has to order their koshari, she says. “It’s a carb lover’s dream—lentils, brown rice, chickpeas with elbow and vermicelli noodles topped with tangy tomato sauce and crispy onions.”


Chikyu was created by two of the original team members behind the renowned restaurant Shizen Vegan Sushi Bar and Izakaya in San Francisco. This sushi spot is Nevada’s premiere Japanese plant-based restaurant and offers gluten-free options, too. “They serve some of the best sushi I’ve ever had that taps into local ingredients and doesn’t rely on mock meats to create lavish rolls,” Edelman says.

Tarantino’s Vegan

Do you love Italian food but are you also trying to cut back on carbs? Visit the first, 100-percent, plant-based Italian restaurant in Las Vegas, Tarantino’s Vegan. Order your favorite Italian dishes at this restaurant without straying from a vegan diet—in addition to vegan pastas they also have a zucchini noodle option. Tarantino’s also locally sources most in-house items, which reduces their carbon footprint. They create dishes with fresh ingredients and offer gluten-free options, too.
