First off, let me say this:
Whoever voted Chicago the vegan-friendlist city in the US needs to check them self! As an always prepared vegan, you know that I always pack food on trips. Because I figured that I wouldn’t have a problem finding food in Chicago I only packed 3 overnight oats for breakfast (Plus, I was on vacation and was not afraid to spend extra money on good food). But finding vegan food in the city was actually quite the challenge.
The 5-hour drive to Chicago was actually quite relaxing. Traffic was good, weather was good, our first meal was REALLY good.
FALAFEL SUB AT SUBWAY! We stopped at a gas station to get gas and eat because there was a Subway inside. Little did I know that little town carried the falafel sub. It was sooo good! I didn’t get the cucumber sauce because I figured it wasn’t vegan.
For two nights we were there we went to seafood buffet for dinner. I obviously didn’t eat seafood but my brother did! I had endless bowls of miso soup, noodles, fruit, and veggie sushi. I tried some weird things though!
The white ball is steamed bread! It was actually good!
I love veggie sushi!
But like I said, finding vegan food in the city was a challenge. I settled for mexican food the first day.
We must have walked over 10 miles in just the first day. Us country folk didn’t even think about taking a bus anywhere.
On our way home, I made one last request to stop at the famous
Holllly cow. These were the best things I’ve ever ate. Even the omi-brother loved them!
I also ordered a pesto/ranch style chick’n sammich! So good.
My favorite place yet!
Have you ever been to the Chicago Diner?
