Many of you guys might not know that I was vegetarian for many years in my twenties. I still don’t eat a ton of meat, I stick mainly to chicken or beef, don’t really like seafood, etc. I still really love a good veggie burger, too!
Today on the blog I wanted to share a few places around Salem that offer vegetarian or vegan options. This list isn’t all inclusive of course but is a jumping off point for some ideas. Many restaurants might allow you to modify items on the menu to be vegan or vegetarian as well. For example, you could go somewhere like Howling Wolf and get a grilled veggie burrito without cheese and make it vegan friendly. However, the following places have specific options or entire menus for those who want to avoid meat and/or dairy.
The first option I’d look to is Life Alive. Their website states that they cater to “omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, raw, gluten-free or other foodies” and their Salem menu can be viewed here.
Jodi Bee Bakes
I love Jodi Bee Bakes, oh my goodness. The scones there are some of my favorites in Salem and I have never been let down by something I ordered there. Check out the vegan options available here.
Flying Saucer Pizza
Who doesn’t love pizza? Flying Saucer is an awesome combo of yummy food and “nerdy” decor focusing on movies, TV shows, books and more. Their menu can be seen here and there is a dedicated section to vegan or vegetarian options.
Passage to India
Indian food is so good, over the last few years it has become a favorite of mine. Passage to India in Salem offers a variety of vegetarian or vegan dishes which can be seen here.
Flatbread Pizza Company
I know Flying Saucer was addressed above and is also pizza, but I wanted to mention Flatbread as well. They have a pizza on their menu for those avoiding meat or dairy and it’s called the “vegan flatbread”. The description is as follows: “Our organic wood-fired tomato sauce, organic caramelized onions, organic mushrooms, Kalamata olives, baked on organic dough with homemade garlic oil with our own blend of organic herbs.” You can also add vegan cheese to it for an up charge. Their full menu can be found here.
Salem Juice Barn
Now, I haven’t stopped into Salem Juice Barn which is new to the city, so I can’t offer my personal opinion on their food and drink. However, I do know they offer vegetarian and vegan items. Just the other day on social media they shared a clip of the meatless meat balls they were making and they looked super yummy. Check out their menu here.
Hopefully this helped give you some ideas for finding a place to eat in Salem!! If you have a favorite spot in the witch city that could fit this list, feel free to comment below. Enjoy!! <3
