Whether you’re fulfilling a New Year’s resolution or simply wanting to turn over a new leaf ahead of spring, going vegetarian or vegan can yield some great results for your health. Taking up a new lifestyle is easy in the Steel City, which is home to several great restaurants that specialize in meatless fare. Here are some of Pittsburgh’s best vegetarian and vegan restaurants to consider this spring.
Onion Maiden specializes in vegetable-based Asian and American comfort foods with a punk-rock, heavy-metal twist. Even if you don’t get the allusions to music and pop culture, you’ll love staples like the Kale ’Em All, Bunn O))), and Aqua Poutine Hunger Force. One of the best things on the menu may very well be the Kimmy Gibbler, a vegan dog topped with house-made kimchi, Korean mayonnaise, and fried onion.
Milky Way is a Kosher and vegetarian pizzeria that offers up healthy takes on classic pizzas. The specialty pizzas alone are well worth checking out — try the Veggie Cheeseburger, Mediterranean, or Spinach Eggplant and see that you don’t want second. But there’s soe much more worth trying at Milky Way, including its “Kicked Up” veggie burgers, entrees like eggplant parmesan and tuna melts, and a range of paninis and sandwiches.
Open everyday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., B52 is a charming café that offers up a bevy of delish dishes. From thick-cut toast topped with cashew cheese or avocado to latkes to baba ghanouj, you’ll have no trouble sating your appetite at B52. It’s also a great place to get your morning coffee or tea, and it serves up unique house-made sodas like blood orange basil and strawberry fennel. These are just some of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Pittsburgh, but there’s one place you need to go if you’re looking for a new Ford: Shults. Visit Shults Ford South and we’ll introduce you to the latest vehicles Ford has to offer.
