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(…)

Jasmine Thai

Jasmine Thai

Boulevard Mall Vegetarian Jasmine Thai shouldn’t be a great surprise to Buffalo/Tonawanda locals. But in case you’re new to the area and are shopping at the Boulevard Mall, forgo the food court and head across the Blvd to 1330 Niagara Falls Blvd:¬†Jasmine Thai. It’s nothing to look at from the outside, and honestly it’s nothing(…)

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(…)

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(…)

Acropolis OPA

Acropolis OPA

If you’re vegetarian and in Buffalo, you know about Acropolis on Elmwood. As you can probably take from the name, Acropolis OPA is a Greek influenced restaurant with an outstanding selection of breakfast, lunch, and appetizers, and a killer bar selection. I’ve been a fan of Acropolis for years. My husband and I found our(…)

Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery

Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery

I’d heard of Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery through word-of-mouth, and no wonder: it’s too good not to be talking about! Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery on 807 Millersport Hwy in Amherst, NY isn’t too far from where I work during the day, so I placed a to-go order during lunch as I looked through Urbanspoon.com. The place had(…)

La Tolteca

La Tolteca

La Tolteca probably has the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten, and I’m from the Midwest. Well, alright, I’ve definitely been more accustomed to “Tex-Mex” which is most certainly not Mexican food, but whatever La Tolteca technically is, it’s way better than anything I’ve been eating so far. First walking in to La Tolteca on(…)
