A number of the restaurants have participated in previous Vegan Chef Challenges. For example, last year Capitol Garage was recognized as the “Longest Participating Venue” (2011-2019) and will obviously retain its title as it is once again participating.

Sacramento restaurants participating in the Vegan Chef Challenge are: Burger Patch; Capitol Garage; Dubplate Kitchen & Jamaican Cuisine; El Papagayo Restaurant (Carmichael); Evan’s Kitchen; Ike’s Love & Sandwiches (Midtown); Kasbah; Mayahuel; Mesa Mercardo (Carmichael); Midtown Sushi; NoMoo at the Corner; Oak Park Brewing Company; Preethi Indian Cuisine; Pure Soul Plant Based Eats; Revolution Winery & Kitchen; River City Brewing Company; Sacramento Natural Foods Co Op; Solomon’s Delicatessen; Thai Basil; The Porch; VEG Café; and, Wayside Noodles (Natomas).
After checking out the menus for this year’s Vegan Chef Challenge I made a list of the offerings I would like to try before the month is over. While I am by no means vegan, nor vegetarian for that matter, I do like a variety of dishes that just happen to be vegan.
As always, the Vegan Chef Challenge organizers are asking participants to vote for and comment on their favorite menu items. I have not to date submitted comments on the vegan dishes I have sampled in previous years – but I might this year.
(10/4/2022) If it’s October (and it is) it is time once again for the annual Vegan Chef Challenge! This year 48 vendors in the greater Sacramento area are featuring special vegan menu items during the month. Check out the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge website for the most up-to-date listings – including menus.
