Lulu's Local Eatery

St. Louis food-truck-goers are already familiar with the name Lulu’s Local Eatery; these mobile peddlers of vegan cuisine have been rolling around town since 2012. Following the success of their truck, husband and wife owners Lauren “Lulu” Loomis and Robert Tucker expanded their operations to include a brick-and-mortar corner storefront on South Grand, featuring the dishes that diners came to love from their food truck. Lulu’s may be vegan, but patrons are treated to hearty, satisfying cuisine that appeals to even the most committed carnivore. Buffalo cauliflower bites are like vegetarian boneless buffalo wings, complete with ranch dressing. Another appetizer, the avocado boat stuffed with Mexican-style quinoa, is satisfying enough to be a meal unto itself. The buffalo veggie burger and sweet potato falafel are also excellent sandwiches, but the star of the menu is the Buddha bowl, filled with stir-fried vegetables and thick, silky udon noodles. Dine on the patio, amidst the organic herbs and vegetables -- you just might be sitting next to tomorrow’s special.
