LR Restaurant Review: The Veg LLC



I am so excited to type this sentence:  Little Rock has an ALL VEGAN restaurant!  The Veg LLC is open for business in the River Market, and the food is great.  I have been watching them online for awhile, as they sold amazing vegan baked goods and things around the city, but in May, they opened up a stall at the market.

Saturday, I eagerly headed down there with Sheridan and Drew to try it.  They've been there before, but it was my first time.  I bounced up and down as I looked over their changing menu, displayed on the chalk board.


They also have a ton of drink options.  The stall is filled with vegan staples, and the guys are great and happy to be serving up plant based awesome-ness!


Food is love!  They were so cool, that they let us take home some killer magnets!



But what about the food, you say?  They had three main things on the menu that day, so we each ordered one thing.  Sheridan got the quesadillas, which were full of veggies.  She said they were really tasty, and the vegan sour cream was amazing.


Drew got the veggie burger with sweet potato fries, and he said it was really good as well!


I got the vegan "tuna" salad, which was mashed chickpeas, vegan mayo and an amazing array of spices and veggies.  It was served in a tortilla bowl with a big, juicy tomato on the side.  I thought the avocado on top was a nice touch.


The salad was great!  You guys know that there's not a lot of things I love more when the weather is hot than a vegan tuna salad.  It was perfectly seasoned and light.

A lot of people came through and ordered food while we were there, and it made me happy to see plant based offerings in the heart of Little Rock.


The food is comforting, tasty and perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike!  If you're down in the River Market, give it a try.  I know I will be coming back!
