Epic Cheese Plate
When I arrived in Dallas, my sweet friend Andy had made us a cheese plate to snack on while we got ready for Fleetwood Mac–it featured the Miyokos Classic Double Cream Chive Cheese Wheel, Simple Mills gluten free crackers, Alter Eco Dark Chocolate with crispy quinoa, lots of fresh fruit, Andy’s homemade nut butter, and mojito mocktails made with Zevia Ginger Beer. Everything was seriously delicious and paired so well together. I need to make more cheese plates!
Dinner at Spiral Diner (Dallas)
So far every time I’ve traveled to Dallas since going vegan I’ve gone to Spiral Diner (an all vegan diner/restaurant with gluten free options), so of course Andy and I decided it would be the perfect place to have dinner before seeing Fleetwood Mac!
I was predictable and got the Nachos Supremo because they’re my favorite, and Andy got the Mitch Tofu Club with home fries. Everything was amazing as always! Before I went vegan, eating at diners was one of my favorite things, so I love vegan diner style restaurants like Spiral.

The main reason for my trip was to see Fleetwood Mac with Andy, and it was epic!
Brunch at Seven Mile Cafe (Denton)
The day after Fleetwood Mac, we went to Denton for brunch at Seven Mile Cafe–I got the loaded potatoes vegan style with tofu scramble and vegan cheese, onions, and spinach, and Andy got the Congress Street Tofu Benny and vegan blueberry waffles. The loaded potatoes reminded me of diner potatoes I used to get before going vegan–they were so tasty, I’m already craving them again.
Recycled Books (Denton)
After Seven Mile Cafe, we went to the a used bookstore called Recycled Books in Denton that’s in an old building that used to be an opera house. I love how you could get lost inside the maze of bookshelves and hear the creaking of people walking above you from the bottom floor. It was one of the coolest bookstores I’ve even been to and made me want to travel to more unique used bookstores around the country–if you know of any good ones, let me know in the comments!
Snacks at Spiral (Denton)
Since we didn’t have room for dessert when we ate at Spiral for dinner in Dallas, we picked up some desserts at the Spiral in Denton–I had a vegan gluten free red velvet cupcake that was so fluffy and perfect, and I also got a chocolate peanut butter cup for later that was amazing as well. Andy got a milkshake, rice crispy treat, and a cookie–they have so many good treats!
Loving Hut (Addison)
For dinner we ate at Loving Hut in Addison since we were in the area–we split Pineapple Fried Rice and Spicy Pad Thai (made gluten free), and they were both good but we both preferred the fried rice–it was tasty and greasy and we devoured it.
El Palote (Dallas)
The last day I was in Dallas I went to El Palote Panadería (an all vegan Mexican restaurant and bakery) with my friend Nicole, and we both got taco plates with al pastor, carnitas, and bistec tacos, as well as horchata and chips and queso. My favorite tacos were the carnitas, and Nicole’s were the al pastor. If you’ve been there, let me know some of your favorite things–I’m eyeing the flautas for my next trip.
Some other fun things I did but didn’t get photos of from the trip: watched Dumplin’ with Andy, went to Credo Beauty in Plano (a natural/cruelty free beauty store), went to a cute store called The T Shop with Nicole.
What are some of your favorite places to get vegan food in Dallas and Denton? Please let me know in the comments, I’m always looking to try new places! Also I’m planning on posting more photos from the trip to Instagram, so follow me there if you want.
