It’s true! Vegan restaurants and food experiences are trending (even for non-Vegan’s)! I am always up for new food experiences. At least that’s what I tell myself. My son has become a Vegan in the last few years and lives in Orlando. While we were meeting up for dinner last night and deciding on a place to eat I told him, “you pick”. And he did! While it has been a long time since I have been to a Vegan restaurant and as a “certified meat-eater“, I have never over the moon for any of them. So, Dixie Dharma is super different! They are rocking a southern cooking menu. They serve 100% plant-based food with a southern spin. They have items on their menu like, “biscuits and gravy” and “wet burrito’s”.
I do love a fried green tomato sandwich. My sandwich had a fresh green tomato sliced super thick, I loved this! They bread it, then deep fry it and serve it with eggplant remoulade, kale, and house chow-chow.” And it was ridiculously good! Add a side of their mac n’ cheese and score! My son had the Hillbilly Chili Dawgs which are two hot dogs in pretzel buns, smothered with housemade Indian chili and cheese sauce, blackened onion, scallions, and a spicy sauce. He is a huge fan of their “tater salad” and after trying it, I would totally agree. It was quite tasty! Their sides even include boiled peanuts. How fun is that? After you have indulged in Dixie Dharma’s vegan “vittles”, their selection of sweets for a nice treat may be one of your hardest decisions of the day! Did you see the Ginger Molasses Pumpkin Spice cookie? Hello? 🙂
