Here are 10 Black-owned vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants to support in Atlanta!

Slutty Vegan

Multiple Locations

Famous in the vegan community for their risqué menu item names, Slutty Vegan serves up the ultimate plant-based comfort food. Opt for the Fussy Hussy (plant-based patty loaded with pickle, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, and slut sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun), or try the Side Heaux, a basket full of New Orleans-style crispy shrimp tossed in Buffalo sauce with a side of fries, sweet & spicy coleslaw, and house-made ranch dipping sauce.

Go Vegan Grill

Decatur, GA

The South is known for having delicious soul food, and Go Vegan Grill is no exception. Stop by for lunch to try Southern-style dishes like fried chick’n with mac ‘n’ cheese, collard greens, and cornbread, or make dinnertime delicious with the shrimp Creole platter. Add tasty sides like rice, black-eyed peas, vegan baked beans, potato salad, and candied yams to complete your order. In addition, the eatery also offers classic chicken and fish baskets made with plant-based ingredients, like chick’n strips, fried shrimp, fried tilapia, and wings, each of which comes with a side of fries.

Tassili’s Raw Reality

Little Five Points

Curious about trying raw vegan cuisine? Tassili’s Raw Reality is a great place to start. The restaurant specializes in raw vegan dishes inspired by founder Tassili Ma’at’s international palate. Wraps are the star of the menu and can be made to order by choosing from a variety of toppings and sauces. We suggest fueling up with the spicy kale wrap, which is filled with soy mayo, spicy kale salad, avocado, and tomato in your choice of a whole wheat or gluten-free coconut wrap.

Grass VBQ Joint

Stone Mountain, GA

Get your BBQ—or should we say VBQ—on at this all-vegan Southern eatery. Grass VBQ specializes in sandwiches and mock meats that are made in-house, such as the smoked hot link sandwich (house-made smoked sau’sage, Cincinnati chili, beer cheeze, and caramelized onion) and the Nashville Hot Chick’n (house-made seitan chick’n drenched in a sweet, smoky, and spicy Nashville Hot Sauce, topped with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and dijon aioli). For a true Southern experience, go for the fried green tomato PBLT with a side of celery slaw.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
