Someone told me that there aren’t many plant-based restaurants in Miami. However, while I was in Miami South Beach, I ate different places at every single meal, and I NEVER had to go very fare away from my hotel. There were definitely an abundance of options to eat a healthy plant-based meal, so don’t be afraid to go hungry in Miami.
Juice and Java
The first place I wanna show you is Juice and Java. It isn’t a completely plant-based place, but there are many plant-based options and they very all labeled as vegan.
I had a green tofu salad with a sour tahini dressing. It was light but filling. On the side I had a 24 oz. veggie juice. I highly recommend this place for a quick simple lunch!
I was very exited to step in to this place. I just wanted to find the nearest restaurant on happy cow, and this was it. As it turned out it was a trendy plant-based gourmet restaurant / cocktail bar.
I had the kelp noodle caesar salad. It was so AMAZING and flavorful that my mouth was exploding in taste impressions and I could hardly finish it. I know it sound weird that something can taste SO good that you can barely eat it, but as a highly sensitive being I feel every impression I get very deeply, which I think is one of my biggest strengths. But I will write about this in another post. This post is about how AMAZING the food was.
It really was.. But moving on 😀
This is another plant-based gourmet restaurant nearby our hotel. I was amazed by all the plant-based options out there. My boyfriend and I agreed that this was our favorite place. The food was incredible (without over-stimulating my taste buds), and besides the obvious gluten-free label which most restaurant carries, they also labelled the OIL-FREE meals, which I found very appealing. So in this place, your actually able to order an amazing plant-based oil-free lunch or dinner. If you visit the place with a meat-eating friend or someone who prefers greasy delicious vegan options, they do offer the impossible burger and the beyond burger with a side of fries on their menu.
This was my main course. I also had rice paper rolls and a delicious gluten-free chocolate cake. I don’t recall the name of my main course but it’s jackfruit in an AMAZING and creamy tomato sauce on top of brown rice and quinoa. As mentioned, the food is amazing, and the waiters were attentive, nice and polite. I highly recommend that you eat here.
I hope you find this guide useful, if you one day find yourself in Miami South Beach. <3
