Veggie St. Pete

We take the guesswork out of finding vegetarian- and veg-friendly dining spots in downtown St. Petersburg

Tijuana Flats January 23, 2012

Filed under: Fast Food,Vegetarian Options — beatlebird @ 8:03 pm

This upbeat, happy-go-lucky and busy Tex-Mex chain eatery features some good veggie-friendly dishes on their menu. Look for the Norrito Bowl – salsa-based rice, topped with black beans, hand-made pico, fresh guacamole & green onions; the fresh salad, packed with rice, beans, and veggies (hold the cheese and sour cream to make it vegan); the ubiquitous chips & guac; and tacos which apparently can be customized with the fillings of your choice.

Beer, wine, and soda available. Happy hour.

Red Mesa Cantina April 13, 2011

Filed under: Vegetarian Options — beatlebird @ 3:30 pm

This bustling, hip place has attractive indoor and outdoor (by a fountain) seating, inside and outside bars, and attentive staff. Vegans may order the tamarind-marinated tofu tacos (but ask to omit the cheese), fried yuca or plantains, chips & salsa, and seasonal vegetables. Lots of vegetarian (not vegan) items to choose from including tofu burrito and potato taquitos. Keep in mind that the cheese dip that comes with chips has beef in it.  The margaritas are generous and dessert is also available.
