When you don’t need meat to meet your needs, let a plant-based menu put your hunger pangs to rest. Sometimes you want that feast to fuel you with renewed energy versus weigh you down with a food coma; enter the tofu and veggie brigade. Still, let’s not downplay the ability of local vegetarian and vegan restaurants to also remain rich and decadent when they want to be.

Take a seat or take it to go at one of these BARTable vegetarian restaurants in San Francisco. Some might even fool your most committed carnivore into thinking that perfectly dressed meat substitute used to roam in a herd.

IndoChine Vegan’s broad array of Pan-Asian favorites lures many out from 16th St. Mission Station to its casual cafe doors on the corner of Valencia at 16th Street. Grab those chopsticks and put them to work as you delve deep into vegan versions of Korean stone pot specials, Vietnamese pho or Bun Hue and fishless Japanese tempura rolls. Wonton soup without the shrimp or pork is a classic and easy comfort food for any palate, alongside plenty of spicy items for the more adventurous.

High in flavor and highly favored by those with a lower budget and zero tolerance for meat, The Flying Falafel stuffs its pita pockets full all day long with some fine fillings and notorious sauces. This is the small and casual order ’n’ go spot in Downtown San Francisco where popular fried chickpea balls, vegan chicken shawarma and Cajun seasoned fries reign supreme. Meatless Mediterranean wraps and plates make for lunch-hour lines worth the wait.
