"Genuss ohne Fleisch," indeed.
I feel somewhat like an interloper, dear Gut Check readers, seeing as how I'm usually found blogging over here
. However, I feel even sneakier because I'm stopping in to ask you about something normally verboten on this blog: vegan food. Yes, food that doesn't involve bacon!
I have a friend visiting me from New York, land of non-meat restaurants and delights, and I'm curious as to where in St. Louis one can procure delicious vegan treats and meals. I've been to the Shangri-La Diner
many times, know of the options at the Schlafly Bottleworks
and have heard rumors of an Indian restaurant here and there (is Govinda's
even open?), as well as a newish place in a far-off land called Chesterfield. But in my mind, no restaurant menu can compare to real-life customer recommendations. And so it's why I ask you: What vegan food in St. Louis is actually good
? Comment away.
