This November, Portland is the place to be for every plant-loving foodie as Veganizer PDX presents World Vegan Month 2023. From November 1 to 30, over 20 vegan-friendly eateries join forces to offer an array of food and drink specials that will not only satisfy your stomach but also contribute to various causes! Each participating location will be donating a portion of the sales from the World Vegan Month specials to a select nonprofit, making this a celebration that extends beyond the plate.

World Vegan Month 2023 Portland Vendors

Kickstart your self-guided vegan food tour at Boxcar Pizza with “The Mock Gobbler,” a Detroit-style square pie filled with vegan cheddar, mozzarella, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy. This one will put you into the Thanksgiving spirit! If you are in the mood for something spicy and caffeinated, Chilango’s Cafe Borracho is offering a must-try coffee-horchata concoction spiked with your choice of rum or whiskey.

For a hearty meal, meet El Salto’s Arepa Pabellon, Venezuelan-inspired soft arepa filled with black beans, pulled “beef,” sweet plantains, and fresh vegan mozzarella. Continue on with South American flavors at Epif, serving a vegan take on the Peruvian Tacu Tacu, comprising rice, pinto beans, roasted thyme tofu, adorned with a citrus-pepper sauce and a lively tomato-onion salsa!

Sweet tooth? Venture to Exquisite Creatures for a comforting Ginger Snap Latte or Kate’s Ice Cream for rotating flavors of vegan ice cream cake slices, which you can customize with chocolate sauce or whipped cream.
