Business Development Food, Restaurants & Dining Spotlight Fara Illich May 28, 2015

Finding a restaurant dedicated to serving vegan food is no easy feat. Bragg’s Factory Diner on Grand Avenue elevated the vegan food scene in Downtown Phoenix and the recent opening of Vegan House is a welcome addition.

Vegan House opened its doors earlier this year, offering downtown diners all-vegan Thai cuisine with a few American-style menu items, all at a great price point.
The Buddha’s Delight was positively delightful with fresh vegetables, bean sprouts and tofu sautéed in a light sauce and served with brown rice (the purple rice pictured above), which adds a beautiful burst of color and was a highlight of the meal. Paired with a vegetable soup and side salad, their lunch deals are all around $10 and will leave you feeling full and healthy.
The Soy Chicken Wrap is full of vegetables and would be great for eating on-the-go. Prefer tofu? You can switch out the “soy chicken” for it at no extra cost.
For carnivores and meat lovers, Vegan House’s menu may be an easy transition to no-meat meals as they offer soy chicken and fish substitutes for almost every dish.

The best part of the meal, though, wasn’t food at all. It was the Thai tea, which would normally come with a non-vegan, heavy dose of cream, but instead features soy milk. This sweet — but not too sweet — beverage is the perfect treat for vegans and dairy-free patrons, especially on a warm summer day. Plus, you can add chewy boba.
The gist: Vegan House is a great addition to the downtown dining scene and offers light and delicious vegan meals at a great value.
We’ll be back to try the fried sweet potato and taro dish battered in coconut tempura and served with peanut sauce.
Vegan House is open every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is located at 20 W. Adams Street.
