Tips for Eating Out As a Vegan

  • Plan Ahead

    • ​Still today, many restaurants do not offer a lot of or even any plant-based options. Be sure to check out the menu ahead of time. If don't have control over the dining spot, consider eating before or even calling the restaurant to see if they'll be able to accommodate you.

  • Don't Be Afraid to Make Special Requests

    • If there are no vegan options on the menu, don't be afraid to ask the waitstaff to check with the chef about making something special. Often chefs enjoy the opportunity to create something new.
