Restaurants — Plant Based Dallas

  1. **Spiral Diner – A cute, quaint vegan place that has been in this location for a long time.  Be aware of oils and other plant based fats in their desserts.

  2. Kalachandji's – Vegetarian café located in an Hare Krishna temple, and you will love the atmosphere.  We always opt for the buffet. Be careful as some dishes do contain dairy, so be sure to ask!                 

  3. Addis Ababa – Delicious Ethiopian food near Central and Beltline. We always order the Vegetarian Sampler plate.  It comes with Injera Bread as your utensil; No forks, knives or spoons, just injera scooping bread!  You will not be disappointed! 

  4. HG Supply Company– Great food and lots of plant based options here. Located on lower Greenville, but usually crowded.  If you are not in a hurry, and enjoy people watching, this is a fun choice.  Or I'd suggest eating earlier to avoid the bigger crowds. Need too watch for the oils in dishes. Ask for ones that can be prepared without the oils.

  5. Green House Market– Located in Northpark Mall.  I have not personally been to this one, but it was recommended by a fellow Plant Based Dallas (PBD) member.  I looked at the menu online, and it appears to have ample plant based choices.  12 salads and 2 sandwiches to choose from for plant lovers.  Even has Chia Seed Pudding for dessert!

  6. **The Gem- located on the northwest corner of Preston and Forest, a nice place for a power juice, smoothie or salad.  Everything they offer is plant based, but they do use oils in some of their food offerings.  You'll need to check the individual ingredient list for oils.  In addition to foods, they offer an array of counseling sessions including De-Tox, Sugar Buster, Weight Management, Meal Planning, Cooking at Home, just to name a few.                   

  7. Salata– "The Next Generation Salad Bar", They have several locations in the Dallas area: Addison, Preston Center, Uptown, Downtown and many more in nearby suburb communities (i counted 15 in the DFW area).  Over 50 add-ons for your salad options!  VERY PLANT FRIENDLY! 

  8. True Food Kitchen-a very popular place located in the SE corner of Preston and Northwest Hwy.  Plenty of plant based options to choose from, as they offer a wide selection of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free dishes.  Beware though, they include lots of oil in their cooking.  Next time we go there, I will try to ask if they can eliminate the oil.   

  9. **Nature's Plate- Two sisters opened up the original 100% WFPB storefront in 2015 near Northwest Highway and Ferndale Rd in East Dallas. Our favorites are Lasagana, Enchiladas, all their Bowls, Shepards Pie, PB Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mint Chocolate Chip cookies, Ginger cookies….They will also prepare larger family size servings or cater to your needs.  Feel free to call Annette or Mary Ann, and tell them Dianne sent you!

  10. Malai Kitchen-This is a Thai-Vietnamese restaurant recommended by Sunil, on our Plant Based Dallas website.  They have locations in Uptown, Southlake, and Dallas.  It is led by husband and wife team, Braden and Yasmin, whose food is inspired by their travels through Thailand and Vietnam.  Sunil said they are happy to prepare any curry without oil, adding tofu and brown rice.  "It turns out perfect", he added!  I have not yet been here, but will update as soon as we visit!  Thanks to Sunil for passing this along to me!

  11. Freshii– Located in downtown Dallas, this restaurant offers salads, wraps, bowls, burritos, soups and more. It is not a WFPB place, but has many options to accommodate a plant based WOE.  1412 Main Street, Suite 101.  Check out their hours before dropping in.

  12. Kuai Asian Kitchen – Whole food plant based friendly restaurant. Asian fast fresh fusion. Owner, Jeff Hancock is always willing to accommodate WFPB! He even helped us create a Whole Food Plant Based Bowl-OIL FREE and it is now on his menu!

  13. Fearings – I’ve never been here but I’ve heard that they offer a separate vegetarian menu that you can ask for. I’m pretty sure you can ask for no oil accommodations.

  14. Sachet – Mediterranean food on Oak Lawn. I understand they have several veggie and legume oriented starters that can be vegan, in addition to a few main dishes. You will have to ask about oil accommodations.

  15. Gloria’s Latin Cuisine – There are many locations all around the metroplex. They have a separate Vegan menu, so be sure TO ASK for it. You can ask them to omit the oil when they prepare your tacos.

  16. Al Biernat’s – Longtime upscale steak and seafood place that has a separate vegan menu now! Two locations: Oaklawn and Spring Valley.

  17. Rusty Taco – The Rusty Taco at Inwood between Forest and Harvest Hill has been very accommodating to our WFPB members. We helped them create The Doyle Plant Based Special for either 1 or 2 people. As you stand at the counter, look to the left on their wall for the Blue signs describing the Plant Based Bowl for 1, or the Plant Based Platter for 2. Thanks to owner Conner Cupit for working with us to make accommodations for all of us WFPB-No Oil eaters! They have added cauliflower to their menu, so be sure to ask them to add that as well!

  18. Flower Child – Three locations now here in Dallas: Preston Royal, Inwood Village and Addison. You need to watch the oil in some dishes. Salads are usually safe if you tell them to put the dressing on the side. I ask for half a lemon and lime to use as a dressing. They also have a big table of condiments to use including tamari/Braggs, vinegars, srirachi…

  19. **Belse- An all vegan place in downtown Dallas. I have heard good reviews, although we have not been there yet.

  20. Mod Pizza- They have multiple locations around town. You can build your own pizza, choosing the toppings you like. Gluten free Cauliflower crust probably has oil in it.

  21. Jason’s Deli- they have multiple locations. We suggest getting a dry baked potato, then douse with vinegar from salad bar, and add salad bar toppings of your choice!

  22. Mattito’s- Mexican fare with various locations. We suggest that you order the Lean Veggie fajitas because they are cooked with no oil. Be sure to verify this with your server.

  23. El Rincon- Another Mexican food place that has several locations around town. You will need to asl the server for a No Oil-Veggie Only Fajita plate.

  24. Cristina’s Fine Mexican– In Frisco, be sure to ask for veggie tacos with NO OIL.
