"North Side: The Chicago..." The Chicago Diner Tip by aperion77

The Chicago Diner, Chicago: 1 reviews and 0 photos

North Side: The Chicago Diner. This is THE vegetarian restaurant in Chicago. Nestled in a cozy and cute building next to a 7-11, the Diner provides great veg fare at decent prices. For my fellow vegans, ALL of their desserts are vegan and coffee drinks can be prepared with soy. Viva la vegan!!

Southside: The Vegetarian Gourmet Express, on 111th b/w Western & Kedzie. Don't let the name fool you. While you are certainly getting gourmet food, the prices are not too bad. This is soul food--and it is amazing!
The Diner has an eclectic manu and it's in a fun neighborhood.

The veg. gourmet express has food sent from heaven. They also have excellent, friendly service. The food is not quick here, but it takes awhile for perfection.

Favorite Dish: Chicago Diner--the no-meata-fajitas! Served with seitan, rice, guac, grilled veggies and tortillas. I think it's about $9 now.

Vegetarian Gourmet Express--the tofu wrap is excellent. On Sundays, though...mmm... they have a buffet that is a whopping $15 per person. It includes a drink, dessert, and all you can eat from the buffet. It is worth every single penny.
