Ever at a loss for where to take that vegan/vegetarian friend of yours? Or maybe your New Year's resolution is to eat a bit better or live a more compassionate lifestyle. Either way, if you think there's limited options near by, think again! I've put together some of the best locations with both vegan and non-vegan options from personal experience and suggestions from fellow-vegans in the area.
A great atmosphere, mind-blowing vegan and non-vegan sushi, and a wide drink selection; this place has it all.
7859 Walnut Hill Ln #180, Dallas, TX 75230
Where nutritious food meets flavor.
The Plaza at Preston Center, 8383 Preston Center Plaza #100, Dallas, TX 75225

And UTD students get 10% off (Dine-in only).

Pass the sriracha, please.

Can't decide if you want Indian or Asian food? This is the place for you. Plus UTD students get a free drink with purchase.

Not to mention Qdoba! These "choose it yourself" places are the best with a wide range of dietary needs.
238 W Campbell Rd, Richardson, TX 75080
A true hidden gem. It may be hard to see but that crepe was bigger than my head.
Richardson Heights Village, 35 Richardson Heights Center, Richardson, TX 75080
I know Whole Foods can seem ominous with their prices, but there's no denying their range of options. And hey! There's a pizza deal on Thursdays: $12.99 for 3 toppings after 4 pm.

A great "grab-n-go" option for road trips and picnics.

"This food compares to d'real Vietnamese cuisine." - Spoon Member

There are 28 vegan options in their buffet; I counted.

This is not a drill: their garlic sauce is vegan. It's the best/worst thing I've discovered all year. Not to mention they give 40% off for UTD students.

Like other options on this list, they also have a buffet at certain times of the day...come hungry, friends.
5024 Tennyson Parkway, Plano, TX 7502
If this still isn't enough, the list of vegan options is basically endless (I just figured I couldn't put them all in one article). If you have more of a sweet tooth, Reverie Bakeshop and Cinnaholic are just down the road.
If fast-food is more your thing, check out this article. Either way, the North Dallas area has a wide range of vegan options to choose from.
