13 May Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe and Lounge
Long-time Las Vegas restaurant Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe & Lounge offers quite a few vegan options on their menu.
Part cafe, part hookah lounge, Paymon’s is a local’s favorite thanks to their delicious Mediterranean fare. Vegans here can expect the typical — yet really good — Mediterranean cuisine along the lines of stuffed grape leaves, hummus, baba ganoush, lentil soup, and more. While many of these are vegetarian, simply excluding the dipping sauces makes ’em vegan. Entrees range from Italian (hello, all-you-can-eat for $10.95 spaghetti), Greek and Indian (sadly, no vegan options on these), and Middle Eastern (veggie kabobs, couscous and more).
What we really love though is the Falamus Pita, packed with deep-fried falafel, veggies and hummus. Don’t miss out on the Athens fries, either. They’re vegan so long as you don’t indulge in the dipping sauce.
Insider tip: Every Wednesday the restaurant runs a customer appreciate night and gives patrons 25 percent off their check. How fab is that?
