Whether you’re a brand-new vegan or you’ve been one for years, there’s always delicious new food to discover. As more people ditch meat, dairy “products,” and all other animal-derived items, restaurants and businesses across the country are getting on the vegan bandwagon by creating truly mind-blowing meals. So if you’ve fallen into a rut and grown tired of eating the same things over and over again, get inspired by checking out the wonderful vegan-friendly businesses across the U.S. that have been featured on BuzzFeed’s “Bring Me” video channel.
Be advised that if these businesses are new to you, the “fear of missing out” will be real. The videos may just inspire you to change your mind about where you’re taking your next vacation. Don’t say that we didn’t warn you!

Posted by Bring Me on Wednesday, November 1, 2017
For World Vegan Day (November 1), “Bring Me” shared a video highlighting L.A.’s Gracias Madre, an all-vegan Mexican restaurant. If you’re far from the City of Angels, fear not! We’ve got plenty of vegan Mexican recipes available right here at PETA.org.
Homegrown Smoker—Portland, Oregon
Technically, the Homegrown Smoker is now operating out of a brick-and-mortar storefront instead of a food truck, but all the delicious food that it’s known for is still being served to the Portland community at its new location. Check out its website for the latest details!
Magpies Softserve—Los Angeles
The only thing that makes the perfect dessert even sweeter is knowing that no animals were harmed in producing it. In addition to the fried pie shown in this video, Magpies features a rotating lineup of unique, delicious vegan soft-serve ice cream flavors.
The Chicago Diner—Chicago
The tantalizing vegan milkshakes and classic diner food at Chicago Diner deserve all the hype that they get. If you want to eat vegan in the Windy City, this is the place to go!
The Herbivorous Butcher—Minneapolis
Can’t make it to Minneapolis? You can try the tasty food in the video above at your own place because—hallelujah—The Herbivorous Butcher delivers.
This is technically a grocery store and not a restaurant, but your stomach will thank you for visiting Vegan Haven.
BE ADVISED: “Bring Me” highlights all kinds of cool places to check out—not just restaurants—but remember that not all the featured businesses are entirely vegan or vegan-friendly.
We can all do our part to help animals and the environment by making conscientious decisions each time that we head to the grocery store, go out to eat with friends, or take a vacation. The kindest, most effective choice that we can make is to avoid all foods derived from animals, including meat, eggs, and dairy “products.”
You don’t need to travel to try next-level vegan foods.
