Koshari, a traditional Egyptian street food, featuring rice, elbow pasta, vermicelli, lentils and chickpeas and topped with tomato sauce and crispy onions
This fast-causal vegan restaurant in Las Vegas wasn’t always vegan. In fact, POTs started out as a vegetarian restaurant but switched to all-vegan shortly after opening.
POTs offers flavor-packed Egyptian cuisine and is the only Egyptian restaurant in Las Vegas.
If you’re not familiar with Egyptian cuisine, it’s basically the best kind of marriage between Italian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines.
2. Tarantino’s Vegan
Another fast-casual Las Vegas vegan restaurant is Tarantino’s. This family-owned restaurant offers an entire menu of Italian favorites, veganized.
If you’ve been craving vegan chicken parm, this is where to go. They’ve also got salads, soups, pasta, flatbreads and more to feast upon.
Finally, end your meal with a gorgeous Italian pastry.

Soon to be the biggest vegan restaurant group in Las Vegas with two locations slated to open by mid-2022, Tacotarian isn’t your normal Mexican spot.

4. Chikyū Vegan Sushi & Izakaya
For a night out, head to Chikyū.
The all-vegan sushi restaurant in Silverado Ranch makes some of the most spectacular sushi in the word without using any mock meats. With cocktails, beer, wine and saki, this restaurant offers creative sushi and izakaya that will have non-vegans not even realizing what they’re eating isn’t made with fish.
The menu is extensive and includes a variety of specialty rolls you won’t find anywhere else in town.

5. Blackout (Dining in the Dark)
Like the name suggests, Blackout features an entirely blacked out dining room.
Guided by servers wearing night vision goggles, your other senses are heightened as you go through their coursed, set menu in pitch black. At the end, you can see what the meal you consumed was … but not until then.
Although they don’t market themselves as vegan, the menu is 100 percent vegan.
What to order: a drink to go with your set menu
