The soft opening of Amber’s Smoked Vegan today marks Las Vegas’ third vegan restaurant to open its doors this year. In March, The Modern Vegan opened nearby the UNLV campus, followed last week by Chef Kenny’s Asian Vegan Restaurant.
Amber’s Smoked Vegan is helmed by Chef Robert Ferrara, who introduced vegan options to the fast-casual seafood spot, Off The Hook. The southern-style soul food joint celebrates country food, delivering a vegan soul food restaurant to Las Vegas.
For the next four days, Amber’s will offer a limited menu, but starting next week, it’s game on.
Appetizers at Amber’s Smoked Vegan include baked mac n cheeze, jalapeño hush puppies, fried green tomatoes and crispy okra. The menu features main dishes like Chik n Waffles, BBQ Ribz, fried chikn, cajun grilled chik n, jambalaya, fish’ n chips (a nod to Ferrara’s former creation that put Off The Hook on the vegan radar) and more. Sandwiches include the Beyond Burger, housemade veggie burger, pulled BBQ jackfruit, Scallopz Po Boy with hearts of palm, hot dogs and corn dogs and more.
Be sure to save room for dessert. They’re serving up deep fried PB&J and deep fried Oreos, along with sweet potato pie and a variety of cheesecakes.
“Our goal is to make vegans healthy, happy and to make delicious southern comfort food,” says Dunn. “Let’s give them the taste of the south.”
