Just like 2,000 other Chipotle locations in the U.S., Mobile’s upscale taco stand can provide you with a wonderful and healthier meal compared to other fast food chains. Safritas, their tofu based topping that might remind you of barbecue - along with beans, rice, fajita veggies, and a slight upscale guacamole, you have a filling vegan burrito bowl, in literally seconds. However, be aware that this filling meal is usually around 1,000 calories and can fill two people. So consider splitting it with a friend or saving half for tomorrow.
Possibly Mobile’s best kept vegan secret. On Old Shell Road in the heart of residential Spring Hill, Reza Hejazi and son Mayron sell a remarkable array of packaged foods and wine from all over. They also prepare a limited but vegan friendly meal while you shop. We enjoy their Falafel, humus, Tabbouleh and Couscous. Sometimes they have a good red lentil soup. Reza comes from Iran and brings with him a chance to sample simple Persian cuisine that’s excellent.
Several vegan appetizers including samosas, pakoras and veg platter and main dishes including goan aloo, yellow dal fry, daal makhani, okra sabji, and many vegatrain dishes that they can veganize upon request. On Wednesdays, there are always vegan dishes on the buffet. Otherwise vegans will want to order from the menu and the chefs are happy to veganize most of the veg dishes.
Another national chain that can provide several vegan options. They even have a vegan menu. Their salad bar beats all the other places hands down. Extras like roasted red pepper hummus, quinoa & mango salad, artichoke hearts, bean salad and corn salad, and nuts separate it from your standard buffet style salad bar. Eat on the patio, enjoy the quiet and fresh air and wonder why Mobilians have to depend on national chains for reliable vegan fare.
