Tables loaded with spicy African dishes - flavored by unusual and delicious combinations of tamarind, cumin, cinnamon, hot chilies, cilantro, and papaya - invite exploration at the overwhelming dinner and breakfast buffets in Disney's colorful, Dark Continent-themed resort hotel.
The raw food movement sprouts at Cafe 118, where raw ingredients supplant all manner of cooked comestibles. Macadamia-and cashew-based "cheeses" are central ingredients in crunchy chiles rellenos and refreshing basil wrappers, while portobello steak takes takes on the appearance of filleted tenderlion, right down to the "pan juices". Fresh fruit-and-vegetable juices, like beet and green apple, are splendid.
UCF-area café-deli caters to a diverse clientele, many of whom come for the all-halal menu and cut-rate prices. Don’t pass up the amazing hummus. Spit-fired shawarmas and gyros keep the college set content, and meaty platters offer more bang for your buck. End with Turkish coffee and baklava fragrant with orange-blossom water. Closed Sundays.
More than 30 organic loose-leaf teas are offered at this socially conscious teahouse that's become a gathering ground for nonconformists, neo-cons and everyone in between. A predominantly vegan menu of wraps, salads and an outstandingly hearty chili will satisfy even the most ravenous of carnivores. Start with hummus with hemp seeds, and finish with the fluffernutter sandwich - a sweet proposition.
Meat, though present on the menu, takes a backseat to healthy vegan and vegetarian fare at this urban coffeehouse. Of note: Liquid-gold soups and hearty vegetarian paella. Banana bread with chocolate chips partners well with the Mojo Jojo, coffee with cinnamon and sweetened condensed milk. Don’t overlook the fresh-squeezed juices.
A garden of leafy delights awaits salad lovers tired of Sweet Tomatoes. Create your own salad or wrap from 37 "tossings" and 12 dressings, or choose from featured recipes, like the Greek-inspired Athena or the refreshingly sweet and dlightfully nutty Daisy.
Ethos Vegan Kitchen features hearty, home-cooked traditional and intercontinental fare.
Menu selections are 100% vegan and include light bites, soups, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and main dishes. On Sundays, a special homestyle brunch-only menu replaces the normal menu.
Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, our format is a counter-service/table-service hybrid:
Guests place their order at the service counter, receive a number placard,
and then await delivery of their order at the table of choice.
Ethos also features a small selection of vegan bakery items made from scratch on-site daily.
Now serving beer and wine!
It’s no secret on the health-food circuit that vegetarian and generally healthy food can be found here, thanks to the dietary observances of the founding Seventh Day Adventists. But real chocolate brownies and coffee with caffeine can also be found in the dizzying spread that starts with a pizza/pasta station.
The creative kitchen works exclusively with meatless options to create satisfyingly deceptive Asian dishes like “orange chicken” and “salt-and-pepper ribs.” Some fool the taste buds but others need a die-hard vegetarian’s appreciation.
Weighing more on the healthy than the strictly vegetarian side, Green Day is nevertheless quite veggie-friendly. Patrons can opt to "global-warm" chicken, turkey, tune or veg wraps on a grill, or make them "green" by leaving out the sauce and cheese. A side of broccoli crunch, flecked with sunflower seeds and subtly sweetened with raisins, nearly upstages the wraps.
Some special places offer more than what’s on the table, and while the teas and veggie snacks are wonderful at this quaint corner spot, just as much nourishment comes from the “third place” environment created by Christina and Brad Cowherd.
Neighborhood sushi joint does everything right, from fresh cuts of sashimi to indulgent and thoroughly gratifying rolls. Specialty dishes like grilled-then-steamed “ginga” fish impress, as do their vegetarian options. Consider the “Eastern Healthy” soup with such intriguing ingredients as wolfberry, burdock and red dates. There are nearly 60 meatless options from which to choose, from rolls to specialty stir-fries.
Formerly a dark cave of a Vietnamese restaurant, the tiny building has been transformed into a sparkling-white temple of oddly delicious veggie dining. The environmentally friendly Loving Hut offers a win-win proposition: Along with more typical Asian options like "noble rice" and "saintly stir-fry," the menu is stocked with snacks like cheesecake, “golden nuggets” and “happy dogs," but it's all vegan. Don't miss the fresh spring rolls or the "coconut delight."
