Whether you eat right year-round or just realized you need to detox from your diet of pizza and beer, Shangri-La Vegan is the place to go for no-frills, macrobiotic Tibetan food. The quiet neighborhood spot is tucked away in a residential area and has a spacious dining room and charming, tree-shrouded patio. Though the restaurant changes its menu daily, its fare stays pretty consistent. On any day of the week, you can expect to get a plate with a scoop of brown rice flanked by an assortment of neatly arranged salads, curries, and stir-fries. These items are entirely vegan and gluten-free, but if you're looking for something even more inoffensive to your gut, the Simple Plate features a similar assortment of items with no seasoning or salt. Shangri-La's entrees are straightforward, filling, and nutritious, and if you have a sweet tooth afterwards, the eatery has a selection of vegan deserts ranging from healthy to decadent.
