Vegan Resources On and Off Campus

Are you going vegan the first time? It is easier than you think. Here are some vegan resources to help make your transition successful!

1. Vegan Food on campus

Thanks to the diligent investigation and generous sharing of Allie Fenwick, here’s a helpful guide to vegan food on campus.

2. Vegan Food off campus

Indian restaurants tend to be extremely vegan friendly. Here are a few Indian places downtown:

Sally’s Roti Shop

Flavors of India  

Curry Original

There are many South-Eastern Asian restaurants in town. They usually offer vegan options on their menu. Even when not, many dishes can be easily veganized. Just politely ask!

Silver Wok

Apsara Angkor Cuisine Restaurant

Phnom Penh

Mango Thai & Pan Asian Cuisine

Sunflower Chinese Restaurant

Thai House Cuisine

Dong Nai

Sima Sushi

O My Sushi

But you say, you love your pizzas, burgers and wraps? No worries! Find them at:

Score Pizza – Yes, they serve vegan cheese!

Harper’s Burger Bar

Ali Baba Kabab

Quesada Burritos & Tacos

Stone City Ales

Iron Duke

Pizza Pizza - Vegan cheese option recently added!

If you are in the mood for something fancy, these relatively high-end restaurants are happy to accommodate vegans:

Olivea

Aquaterra

Chez Piggy

Atomica (they’ve just added a vegan cheese menu!)

Going vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up your sweet tooth either! Vegan bakery and desserts can be found at:

The Small Batch Cafe & Eatery

Crave Coffee House & Bakery

Geneva Crepe Bistro

Balzac’s Kingston

Coffee & Co

Delightfully Different Tea Room

3. Cook it yourself!

Okay, you know how to cook. But you don’t know how to substitute the meat and dairy? We have put together a long list of meat and dairy substitutes for you, and where to find them in Kingston! The full list can be found at the bottom of this page. Now you can make your meatball spaghetti, sausage roll, chicken sandwich, or smoothie just the way you like it.

If you are not used to cooking, try and explore the fun of it! There are millions of recipes out there. It’s hard to catch up these days especially when there are apps like Yummly. There’s always something that suits your budget, time, and taste!

4. Catering for your guests

Serving coffee for your guests? We recommend great non-dairy milk options such as Silk Almondmilk, Almond Breeze and So delicious Dairy Free Creamer. They are available at most local stores.

For vegan catering, check out Eat Lover Vegan, Black Cat BakeryWindmills, Desert Lake Gardens, Old Farm, AliBaba, Stone City Ales, Sally’s Roti Shop, and Pan Chanc Cho.

5. Other resources on vegan living

A lot of snacks and our guilty pleasures are, surprisingly and accidentally, vegan. Check this out. Barnivore can help you select vegan beer and wine. Eating vegan is of course only one dimension of vegan living. We encourage you to explore other dimensions as well.

6. Share you ideas with us and connect!

Take pictures of your vegan meals and groceries, and share them with us via Instagram and Facebook. Hashtag #QVP!

Connect with other vegans on campus and in Kingston! Queen’s Vegans and Vegetarians and KingstonVegNetwork get together regularly to enjoy vegan food and company!
