Looking for new and healthy cuisine options? Check out these vegan dishes around Sioux Falls for Veganuary.

Veganuary Month (also known as January) is a month-long celebration that was created to encourage non-vegans to try the lifestyle. Vegans don't eat any animal products, including meat, dairy, or eggs, and also refrain from buying leather goods, honey, and other animal products.

Sioux Falls has several restaurants where you can try delicious vegan dishes, whether you've been a vegan for years or are simply curious to try this type of cuisine. Our real estate agents suggest stopping by the following Sioux Falls restaurants to try vegan dishes:

  • Sanaa's Gourmet Mediterranean - 401 E. 8th St. #100, Sioux Falls, SD 57103
    Eating a healthy vegan menu is easy at Sanaa's Gourmet Mediterranean, located in the East Market Arts Hub. Dishes are healthy, affordable, and made from scratch with only freshly ground spices and organic, untreated flour. The menu is marked to designate vegan options, and you'll find plenty to choose from. Try a fatayer, which is a Mediterranean calzone that's made from pita bread dough, filled with stuffings, brushed with olive oil, and baked in the restaurant's stone oven. Several types are available with a vegan option, including one that comes stuffed with fresh spinach, walnuts, onion, and olive oil. All soups and salads are also vegan.

  • Daily Clean Food & Drink - 6215 Western Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57108

Bowls are also popular menu items, with your choice of style, base, protein, sauce, and cheese.

  • Lam's Vietnamese Restaurant - 1600 E. Rice St., Sioux Falls, SD 57103
    Vegan options have their own large section of the menu at Lam's Vietnamese Restaurant, which serves authentic traditional Vietnamese food.

  • Lalibela Restaurant - 200 S. Kiwanis Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57104
    Lalibela Restaurant
    is named after a historic town that's one of the holiest cities in Ethiopia. The restaurant's cuisine takes some of its flavors from tasty Ethiopian spices, including berbere, a powder form of red peppers, onions, garlic, and other spices. This, as well as other Ethiopian spices, are integral to the country's cuisine and help bring out the flavors of the food. If you're looking for vegan options, check the menu for veggie dishes, all of which are vegan. This includes the Veggie Sambusa, which are pastry shells filled with whole lentils, onion, and jalapeno peppers.

  • Shahi Indian Grill, 527 S. Shirley Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57106
