VegKC Restaurant Meetup - Aladdin Cafe (Pending Confirmation)
We will be selecting and posting a venue for this month's restaurant event shortly. Some of our favorite Veg friendly places in the area that you may enjoy checking out are FüD (vegan), Cáfe Gratitude (vegan), Mud Pie Vegan Bakery and Cáfe, Eden Alley (vegetarian), Waldo Pizza (vegan menu), Blue Koi Noodles & Dumplings (Cantonese style Chinese), Aladdin Cáfe (Middle Eastern), Blue Sushi Sake (lots of unusual veggie rolls), il Lazzarone (Neapolitan style pizza), Blue Nile (Ethiopian), Korma Sutra (Indian), Malay Cafe (Malaysian), Thailand Restaurant (Blue Springs), Spices (Thai), Chez Elle Creperie and Coffee House (gluten free/vegan substitutions), Nguyen Pho (veggie broth!), and Fervere Bakery. Plus many other options in the area to explore. Some popular Veg friendly chains to be aware of include: Planet Sub, Chipotle (pinto beans vegan? Added Sofritas!), Qdoba, The Mixx, PF Changs, Ruby Tuesday (salad bar), Taco Bell (Ordering Fresco style easily makes many things vegan), Panera Bread / Saint Louis Bread Company (breads may not be strictly vegan), Noodles & Company, Pei Wei Asian Diner, Subway, Houstons (veg burger - order vegan bread), among others... If you're new to a particular type of food and interested in ordering it veg*n, be sure to ask or research what to substitute for or order it without... For example: Thai food often has fish sauce, egg, or oyster sauce. Waldo pizza has soy cheese - which isn't vegan - see their vegan menu. Vietnamese food often uses fish sauce - substitute peanut sauce. Indian food frequently has ghee or butter. You may find some useful veg-info at ( If you RSVP, show up. .. please check back, details will be posted here. Please - make the effort to keep your RSVP accurate!!! We need venues to happily continue to accommodate us. Imagine reserving most of the seats in a busy restaurant, and then showing up with only a handful of people... If you enjoy our events as much as we do, please also consider donating a few dollars to help our volunteers cover our Meetup site costs. Contribute online ( or in person.

What we're about

What's this? A friendly, welcoming, supportive group of herbivores, vegans, vegetarians, WFPB eaters, and veg-friendly KC locals? Oh my!

We have Monthly restaurant get-togethers, occasional vegan potlucks and other events... it's a great way to explore new foods, learn from others and make new friends.

Hanging out with us is very un-intimidating! Everyone is super-friendly and there are always new people to meet!

Our events are very laid back and relaxed with minimal structure so that you have the chance to just visit and talk to other members while enjoying great food.
