Whether Joaquin Phoenix is your spirit animal #alldayeveryday or you’re simply looking to go meatless on Mondays, there’s never been a better time to be powered by plants alone.

Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant

You don’t need a passport to experience the regional delicacies of East Africa. Fasika is the name of an important feast in Ethiopia, and it is a fitting moniker as this establishment has more than a dozen options for diners who prefer plant-based pigging out.

Miser Wat

These mildly spiced split red lentils, made with berbere, garlic, onions, and olive oil, are served with rolls of injera, an always vegan Ethiopian pancake/flatbread made from sour fermented batter of ground teff grains and water.

Vegetarian Sambusa

East Africa’s version of a samosa. Fasika’s meatless version features brown lentils mixed with onions and garlic.
