There are some restaurants for vegetarians and vegans that even meat eaters love, right? After all, a colorful and tasty salad always goes well. In Boston, for example, there are several spaces that serve super-fresh dishes full of fruits and vegetables.
Paulo and I are going there soon and we are already looking for tips about the place. As one of our first questions is where we are going to eat, I am researching several restaurants that are interesting. I selected the most recommended places when it comes to vegetarian and vegan food and made a list for you to also write down what they are ?
I already told you about By Chloe. in the post of vegetarian restaurants in NY! They also have a unit in Boston, so don’t miss the opportunity. Their food has a more fast-food style, but still healthy and natural. Most dishes are plant-based, so vegans and vegetarians can eat there without any major concerns.
Their salad options are super varied, most of which are gluten-free. For those who wake up a little later, they serve a great brunch, with options ranging from pancake and cinnamon roll to toast and quinoa cookies served with tofu and a little bit of paprika.
Provisions for the whole heart
Whole Heart Provisions salad bowls are highly praised by restaurant patrons. Although the space is small, it is cozy and the food seems to be delicious. Reading the customer reviews you can see that they like to mix textures and flavors, making the simple one more different, you know?
They specialize in bowls, so don’t wait any longer than that! In addition to the fixed dishes, you can create your own. I confess that I find it even more interesting to be able to choose what will go in the salad, because it will be a unique creation and mine ?
For a very natural and delicious breakfast, just go to Mother Juice. They sell a variety of incredible juices and very creative names. One of the options, for example, is Unicorn Blood. It is made with beets, carrots, celery, watermelons and pineapples!
As for food, they have good options for toast, salads and even some vegan sweets. The salads are even a bit like the bowls of Whole Heart Provisions, with ingredients of different textures. Everything is super fresh and well prepared.
Dig Inn has a few chicken dishes, but most of their menu is vegan. They work with seasonal ingredients and the majority come from local producers, valuing the best ingredients from that region. The interesting thing is that the dishes go beyond simple salads.
There you will also find hot dishes, such as the roasted Tuscan cabbage and served with caramelized onion, garlic chips and a homemade sauce. If you still want a salad, order the tofu with broccoli, almonds and kale! You can see the full menu by clicking here ?
Life Alive is undoubtedly one of Boston’s most famous places for vegetarians and vegans. His atmosphere is not very modern and cool, but the food is so praised that it doesn’t even matter so much. One of their values, as stated on the website, is to offer healthy food in such a busy world.
That is, if you want to eat well and without having to wait long to have a healthy and tasty meal, be sure to go to Life Alive. One of their most requested dishes is the bowl with cooked cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli, chopped beets and carrots – all on a bed of brown rice and a refreshing sauce of garlic, ginger and lemon.
Clover Food Lab
Clover Food Lab is the perfect place to try different sandwich fillings. The cafe has a huge menu, with super creative combinations. One of the most successful sandwiches is the stuffed with seitan, caramelized onion, lettuce, tomato and the bread made by them.
Several of their dishes are very similar to meat, since they imitate the shape of the “hamburgers”. The seasonings and extras of the sandwiches are always delicious, even those who eat meat usually love it! Ah, they have a very varied menu for breakfast, with great options for drinks, eggs and sandwiches.
Unlike other restaurants, True Bistro is a little more refined and with more complex dishes. Their entire menu is plant-based and with very creative and innovative combinations. One of the options is the fettuccini served with smoked cashew cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and leek cream.
They also have a special breakfast menu, with delicious crepes and waffles. It is the type of place that everyone loves, including those that love meat and hardly give up a plate with anything of animal origin!
I know I’ve talked about many places with salads in bowls, but most vegetarian restaurants in Boston follow that style. Sweetgreen is another one of them, but what makes it special is the seasonal menu, with many options of grains, salads and vegetables. Not everything on their menu is vegetarian or vegan, so take a look at the description of the dishes before ordering anything!
Bowls usually have a huge variety of ingredients, so go prepared to eat well. To give you an idea, a “shroomami” comes with organic wild rice, chopped kale, raw beets, cucumber, basil, spicy sunflower seeds, portobello mix, roasted tofu and miso sesame sauce with sesame.
Ice cream is one of the desserts that I love the most in the world. Both in the heat and in the cold, a cone or a jar of ice cream always goes well. Vegans usually have a hard time finding the sweet without animal derivatives, but back in Boston, just go to FoMu.
They also serve some delicious cakes, but their specialty is ice cream. All ingredients are natural and various flavors are seasonal. They are divided into two parts: those that are based on coconut and those that are based on some type of oilseed. Among the flavors are mint with chocolate, pistachio and peach. After so many places to eat something salty, nothing better than a good dessert ?
