Comprehensive Vegan Guide to Miami/Ft Lauderdale

Comprehensive Vegan Guide to Miami/Ft Lauderdale

Hey everyone! I am so excited to finally be launching my website after 2 years of being all about the ‘gram. I have really enjoyed connecting with all of you lovely people and I have been wanting to take it to another level with a website about food, travel, and lifestyle for a while now and here is part of it, the other part I will be announcing soon. For my first post I figured I would write about something I know very well: a comprehensive Miami/Ft Lauderdale vegan guide! I get asked a few times a week to recommend my favorite places in Miami and there are so many fantastic places that have opened in the last few years along with the mainstay Miami spots that have pioneered the movement down here. I tried to include as much as I could, I only included non-vegan restaurants if I feel like they have enough delicious and satisfying options for vegans, or if their 1 vegan option kicks a lot of ass, not if they throw some veggies on a plate and call it “our vegan option.” Restaurant names in green are 100% vegan, and the ones with 2 pink stars are my absolute favorites. So here you go, please feel free to leave any questions/comments/concerns below.
