Kidney beans, collard greens, and sweet potato pie. $7.95 meal for two?

The Phoenix Garden is Vietnamese super-veggie-friendly restaurant. We ordered way too much, so had to get to-go boxes. Luckily our hotel has a fridge and microwave.

Amazing. Oh how I wish there was an Ipanema in Raleigh…

Reuben with potato salad, and jerk tempeh with fries.
And of course: pear pie ala mode.

Ipanema has a very nice & cozy pub-like atmosphere.

Africanne on Main

This veggie friendly buffet-style restaurant, advertised as North African cuisine, was very reminiscent of Jamaican food, with lovely veggie dishes, plantains, and coconut pies.

We had to go back and buy another mini coconut pie and special Mamusu’s sweet tea.

Sticky Rice

This downtown restaurant has a second location right across the street, just for takeout! We knew they had lots of vegetarian/vegan sushi, but looking at the menu was torture, simply because there were too many tantalizing options! It was really good, so good we were sad we hadn’t gone there earlier in the week so we might have had time to go back again!
