It’s not easy being vegan. But thanks to popular East Austin restaurant, Old Thousand, once per month, you won’t have to worry about what’s for dinner. That’s right — they’re hosting a monthly vegan dinner series, so plant-based eaters can pig out on top-notch Chinese cuisine that’s missing the meat.
It’s a Vegan Night
Mark your calendars and alert your vegan friends — Old Thousand’s vegan dinner series is sure to be the highlight of your month.
And with a modern (and vegan) take on classic chinese dishes, the special plant-based menu may even tempt your die-hard meat-eating friends (if the previous month’s selections are any indication). Prepare to sink your fork into the likes of Beet and Broccoli featuring steamed, then chilled Gai Lan Chinese broccoli topped with rainbow beets and pickled Gai Lan stems and Buddha’s Delight made with sweet potato noodles, early fall vegetables, and chili-fermented bean sauce. Um, yum!
Not only is the food delicious and one-of-a-kind, it looks stunning on the plate. Wash it all down with one of their carefully-crafted cocktails like the Uncle Billy with Aviation Gin, Ancho Reyes Chili Liqueur, and honey.
The best part? Old Thousand promises to bring back well-liked vegan dishes each month as well as cook up fresh creations, so there will always be something new to try.
Don’t worry if your stubborn non-vegan beau is unwilling to taste test the Kung Pao Vegan Wings — the vegan menu will be offered alongside their regular menu, so meat will still be an option.
November’s Vegan Night has already come and gone. But stay tuned for upcoming dates and be sure to make a reservation as soon as the next one is announced, as word is spreading fast!
