World Go Vegan Week

In addition to the Food Day that took place on Monday, this week is also World Go Vegan Week (check out the link for all kinds of great resources).



And at least in Madison, many local restaurants are helping to celebrate by offering special vegan items or discounts.

Here's a selection:

  • Bunky's Cafe  Will be offering all pizzas with vegan Daiya cheese. Mention World Go Vegan Week (WGVW) to get a free serving of vegan baklava!
  • Glass Nickel Pizza: Will have two special vegan pizzas (Thai Pie with peanut sauce, Daiya vegan cheese, tofu, broccoli, red peppers, onion, and cilantro topped with bean sprouts and chopped peanuts. And Vegan Delight with BBQ sauce, Daiya vegan cheese, broccoli, corn, garlic, pineapple and red onion). You can also substitute vegan cheese on any of their regular pizzas.
  • Green Owl Cafe: Will be offering $1 off their delicious vegan desserts when you order a sandwich or entree order, if you mention WGVW
  • Ian's Pizza:  Will have a special vegan pizza "Butternut Squash Ratatouille":  features squash, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and capers all roasted in olive oil, topped with Daiya.
  • Monty's Blue Plate Diner: Free vegan dessert (fruit pie) with your vegan entree if you mention WGVW.
It's a good week to try limiting your intake of dairy products. If you can't go whole hog*, you could always try Mark Bittman's strategy of being Vegan Before 6.

  1. I had the Ian's slice the other day - it was very good! Well-balanced, with tender squash and whole cloves of roasted garlic, just enough Daiya, and their same great crust.

    (PS I love puns.)
