Vegans in Las Vegas, rejoice! A breath of fresh air has appeared on the horizon, in the form of The Modern Vegan.

This breakfast/brunch/lunch spot was sorely needed, filling a void we had been lamenting about for some time. Not every day does one wish to trek to Terrace Pointe Cafe at the Wynn, or Downtown to Vegenation for some vegan breakfast. And to be honest, The Modern Vegan’s menu selection, portion sizes, and flavors blow all the other options out of the water.

Today was their Grand Opening, and they definitely still have some kinks to work out: 1hr + wait times for food, blenders not arrived yet for smoothies, broken juicer, etc…but honestly, what restaurant doesn’t have a crazy first day/month?

The food was SO WORTH THE WAIT. Let me stress that. We ordered quite a few items and when they finally did come, it was heaven.

Feast your eyes:


Wouldn’t you be happy to wait for this? I was. The decor was well thought out as well, and even the bathroom was super cute!

 

Long live The Modern Vegan!! I hope they will become a Vegas staple for many years to come.

A little about me: Born and raised in Los Angeles, I have always been a fan of fashion, good food, music, movies, fitness, and fun times. Having dreamed of being a singer in Japan since I was a little girl, I went to UCLA to get my BA in English Literature, then trolled around in Downtown LA for a bit before selling my car to run away to Tokyo. I got a rock band of Japanese/Chinese men together and collaborated with them to create the band ‘19 Mirrors’. Some of our performances are still on youtube, albeit accompanied by terrible sound quality. Whoops. I was the lead singer of 19 Mirrors for almost 3 years; we played a ton of venues in Tokyo, and even booked a 10-day tour of Beijing, China. Then came the March 2011 tsunami/earthquake disaster. I stayed in Tokyo until November 2011, when I ultimately decided to make the move back to LA. While still living in Tokyo, I was going through the process of becoming plant based. I kept happening across books and articles that described the inherent cruelty that comes with eating animal products, the complete lack of balance my body felt while consuming them, and found that I couldn’t reconcile my love of animals with eating them and wearing their skin. Therefore, when I moved back to LA, I promptly became a whirlwind of plant based, cruelty free fervor, wanting to discover fashion, food, and cosmetics alike that aligned themselves with my newfound beliefs. To my delight, anything I ever craved or wanted to wear was available in a plant based, cruelty free form! Joy! I was super happy to discover that I didn’t have to sacrifice style, appetite, or health to be plant based, balanced, healthy, and cruelty free. I now live in Las Vegas, and intend to blog full time about a compassionate, luxury, cruelty free lifestyle! ~Come fly with me~

    1. This is pretty close to the strip! But if you want something on the strip itself, both Wynn and Encore have vegan menus at all their restaurants. Nacho Daddy, Hussong’s, and Slice of Vegas All have pretty extensive vegan menus as well.
