theunspeakablethings asked: Hey, I'm moving to Denver in a few days and I was wondering if you maybe had a top 5 favorite vegan restaurants that you go to? Also, any grocery stores that you really love and maybe possibly the best areas you think are best to live? Haha, Really, anything would help. Thanks!
Well, first I would recommend Watercourse and City O’ City, both of which are amazing vegetarian restaurants where you can order (almost) everything vegan. Root Down is not a vegetarian or vegan restaurant, but they label their vegan options clearly and have a raw vegan night once a month. Sputnik also has a lot of vegan options and labels them well. The Vegan Van is a great food truck.
We are getting our own all-vegan grocery store, Nooch, within the next couple of weeks! Right now I mostly shop at Whole Foods, but there are a lot of good Asian grocery stores on Federal Blvd, and one downtown (Pacific Mercantile). We also have Tony’s Market and Marczyk Fine Foods, which are fancier markets. We have some good farmer’s markets around town as well.
I’m a little biased but I’d recommend Capitol Hill. I love this area and would never leave it, but my second choices would be Baker or the Highlands.
I’m on my break at work, so I know I’m forgetting some things, but Vegan Coloradical is a really great resource. Have a good move!
