Opening a plant-based restaurant in a food desert may seem risky, but for Recipe Oak Cliff owner Tisha Crear, it was absolutely necessary. A hub for fresh-pressed juices and an assortment of inventive meals—including a stellar Jackfruit Barbecue Sandwich Plate—this friendly joint has attracted a following from all walks of life. Crear also allows other plant-based chefs to utilize the space for dinners and pop-ups, so there’s always something new waiting right around the bend.

Perhaps best-known for its organic smoothies and pressed juices (also available in multi-packs for cleanses and daily use), this cafe, market, and rentable commercial kitchen began as part of an initiative to get fresh, healthy food out into the South Oak Cliff community. In addition to the nutritious drinkables, guests can also enjoy veggie-packed salads and bowls, as well as lettuce-wrap tacos, barbecue jackfruit platters and sandwiches, falafel bowls and wraps, and mounds of zoodles. Daily specials, grab-and-go items, and weekly meal plans are also up for grabs.
