  • Allen Burger Venture

    Allen Burger Venture

    Allentown Vegetarian Vegans and vegetarians don’t have to shy away from Allen Burger Venture as the menu is prepared for alternative eaters. Vegetarian burgers are always tricky for me. So many restaurants cop out by throwing a frozen soy bean patty in the microwave and calling that good. That doesn’t work for me as I(…)

  • Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill

    Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill

    Elmwood Village Vegetarian El Agave was one of my favorite restaurants in the Village. It was cheap, the servers were nice, the food was good, and the setting was intimate. We don’t need to go into details as to why it’s not here anymore, but its replacement, Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill, is a great(…)

  • Osteria 166

    Osteria 166

    Osteria 166 is a sexy and sleek place in Downtown Buffalo that offers an excellent bite to eat. Osteria 166 reminds me of that ever popular Frank Sinatra song: “Nice work if you can get it, and if you get it, won’t you tell me how!” During a pasta craving on a Friday night, I(…)

  • Lloyd Taco Factory

    Lloyd Taco Factory

    Lloyd Tacos find a permanent home on Hertel and the neighborhood is oh-so-happy. (*Featured Image is from our friends at Buffalo Rising because it’s hard to beat) Alright, it’s me who is oh-so-happy, but Hertel is my neighborhood, so I’m not technically wrong. I went to the soft opening of Lloyd Taco Factory at 1503 Hertel Ave(…)

  • Essex St. Pub

    Essex St. Pub

    Elmwood Village Vegetarian My husband and I drove into Buffalo after nearly a two-year hiatus. We were tired, we were stressed, but damnit we were happy to be home! We celebrated with dinner at a Buffalo restaurant. Essex St. Pub has been around since before I left, yet I never made it in. While chatting(…)

  • Yummy Thai

    Yummy Thai

    Yummy Thai has locations in both Buffalo and North Tonawanda to bring you some incredible vegetarian Asian fare. As a vegetarian, I love me some Asian food, and there’s not much that beats Thai. Yummy Thai is a great place for some flavorful dishes and great times with friends! The first time I every tried(…)

Vegan-Paleo Buffalo Bites

Vegan-Paleo Buffalo Bites

Going vegetarian doesn’t mean you have to give up amazing Buffalo Wing flavor I’ve never really cared for Buffalo Wings myself. Then again, I grew up in the Ozarks, and Midwestern chicken is most certainly not the same as Northeastern chicken. I digress. When I got to Buffalo, I loved the flavor and even the(…)


Red Pepper Chinese-Vietnamese

Red Pepper Chinese-Vietnamese

Familiar Chinese dishes and Vietnamese classics, Red Pepper Chinese-Vietnamese Restaurant will deliver a tasty experience. It all began with a craving for steamed dumplings. I’ll spoil the story: Red Pepper doesn’t have vegetarian dumplings, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have anything else I wouldn’t enjoy! The hubby and I had a rare mid-week opportunity(…)

Lake Effect Diner

Lake Effect Diner

Featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Lake Effect Diner is one of Buffalo’s Best Eateries! Along 3165 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14214 is a classic-looking stainless steel car-style diner called Lake Effect Diner. It was recommended to me by a co-worker when speaking about our mutual appreciation of potato cakes, so about 2(…)

Parings Wine Bar

Parings Wine Bar

Continuing with Local Restaurant Week: Parings Wine Bar makes for a wonderful night out with great food I’m actually not certain if I can honestly categorize Parings Wine Bar as a vegetarian restaurant. Much like another one of my favorite restaurants, it has a menu that changes, so while it provides a vegetarian option now,(…)

Ulrich’s 1868 Tavern

Ulrich’s 1868 Tavern

It’s not all meat and potatoes at this historic German-American tavern in Downtown Buffalo Ulrich’s 1868 Tavern, located at 674 Ellicott Street in Buffalo, NY, doesn’t just throw ‘1868’ in there arbitrarily. First listed under the business title “Grocery-Saloon” back in 1969 by German-immigrant owner Frederick Schrerier, Ulrich’s building has outlasted crazy moments in history,(…)


Food Truck Tuesdays

Food Truck Tuesdays

Food Truck Tuesdays at Larkin Square will solve your picky eater problems. Somehow, Food Truck Tuesdays had escaped me. Not certain how this happened, but I was completely unaware this event existed until a Lloyd’s Taco craving hit me Monday afternoon. There was no Lloyd Taco Truck anywhere near me Monday, and I didn’t venture(…)

Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts

Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts

The Summer’s Not Over Until The Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts Has It’s Weekend Sadly enough, that time is nearly upon us. Thankfully, we can celebrate the end of summer in the city with a final farewell to our favorite artists at the Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts. Call it what you will:(…)
