The Best Vegan & Vegetarian Restaurants in Las Vegas
The trendy, 100% plant-based Tacotarian is so popular it now has three locations across the Las Vegas Valley. There are over a dozen different taco choices, all with plant-based proteins, as well as a selection of appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and vegan ice cream dishes for dessert. (The downtown Arts District location also serves cocktails and margaritas.) Weekend brunch items include breakfast tacos, burritos, chilaquiles, chicken and waffles, and more. One of the co-owners of Tacotarian also founded LOCO Las Vegas, a food delivery co-op that takes half of the commission of what other food delivery platforms charge, so that restaurants aren’t losing money with each delivery order, and is cooperatively run by the local partner restaurants.
The Best Mexican Restaurants in Las Vegas
Tactotarian is proof you don't need meat or seafood to have great Mexican food. As Vice President Kamala Harris knows firsthand, the restaurant is dedicated to using only plant-based ingredients in its dishes—not an easy feat to pull off with a cuisine that leans heavy on cheeses and creamy sauces. Yet Tactotarian scores with vibrant flavors in 14 different tacos and other traditional dishes, including burritos and quesadillas. In some cases, meat substitutes like Beyond and Gardein are used, but Tacotarian is inventive with its house blends and recipes that allow jackfruit, hibiscus flower, and mushrooms to take center stage.
