In a city known for steakhouses, pizza, and cheese, it can be challenging to find vegan options. But, the amazing part about Chicago is that there truly is everything here — including way more vegan restaurants than you might think. And, we're not talking about places with a token vegan dish on the menu. We mean eateries that are 100% meat-, dairy-, egg,- and other animal-product-free.
That said, don't feel like you need to be a vegan to go out and enjoy the places in this piece. From moist vegan cupcakes to a hash loaded with root veggies, there are dishes out there even carnivores will love. Happy eating!
