Veganpalooza at Mandalay Place

Just this month we have seen emerge fifty yards of the most exciting new vegan eating options to hit Las Vegas in a while.  That fifty yards is found in Mandalay Place which connects The Luxor and Mandalay Place.  That fifty yards stretches from Slice of Vegas Pizza to Hussong’s Cantina.  I blogged last week about the new vegan menu at Hussong’s which gives viable and delicious plant-based menu items at Mexican restaurant like nothing we have ever seen here before.  Next door is Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar, which features a wonderful Vegas Vegan Burger.  On the other side of Burger Bar is Slice of Vegas Pizza, which is owned by the same innovative and terrific restaurant team, Titan Nightlife Group, that owns Hussong’s.  

I have raved about Slice of Vegas Pizza before and their amazing vegan pizza, which I happen to prefer to any other place that uses non-dairy cheese.  Fabulous crust and sauce.  I have also flipped about the Vegan Chocolate Cake with the peanut butter and chocolate frosting. Oh my yes. With the unveiling of the new vegan menu at Slice of Vegas  Pizza, there is even more to be excited about.  Just ask the hostess when you come in or your server for the Vegan Menu and you will see a whole page of salads, garlic bread, bruschetta, pasta, meatballs, meatball sandwiches, meatless chicken wings, paninis, two kinds of pizza, and of course, the cake!  They have had BBQ-Chicken pizza to the mix along with the standard vegan veggie, utilizing Gardein and Daiya products.

I couldn’t do a whole pizza by myself so I decided to order some Bruschetta along with and order of the Meatless Meatballs.  It turned out to be a great decision and combination for my lunch.   The Meatless Meatballs were formed with lots of veggies and topped with fresh marinara sauce and melted Daiya cheese.  They were so good and packed with all things delightful and I can’t wait to try them on a sandwich on a future visit.  The Bruschetta were perfectly toasted slices of Italian bread served with a traditional bruschetta mix, roasted peppers, and olive tapenade.  Now I though I made some great bruschetta but these were dynamite and the options that had to put on the slices of bread created some amazing explosions of flavor.  The two items were a great compliment to one another and I could not have been happier for my choice.  Well, maybe a little happier if I had saved some room for some cake!

Though these items at Slice of Vegas Pizza and Hussong’s were introduced during World Vegan Month, they will be permanent menu items at both restaurants.  There is even more good news…there is more coming.  I cannot say enough good about what they are doing here.  I believe they are going to be game-changers and have the same kind of impact on plant-based eating in local restaurants that Steve Wynn did when he introduced plant-based eating options to all of his restaurants at the Wynn and Encore.  When people ask me where they should stay for great vegan options here in Las Vegas I tell them to either stay at the Wynn or Encore or at The Luxor or Mandalay Bay.  Between these amazing choices here at Mandalay Place and what you can enjoy at the Luxor and Mandalay Bay, you won’t have to venture very far.  Mandalay Place is going to get a lot of out of town visitors but it is easy for locals to get to as well.  Park upstairs at the Luxor and come in the back way or use the valet at Mandalay Place that not too many know about yet.  Slice of Vegas Pizza is family-friendly and have some the nicest people there that you will ever want to meet.  Come and enjoy fifty yards of wonderful for yourself.
