my mom lives in omaha and so I will be spending thanksgiving up there.

she will be making the usual turkey feast.

is there a good place in omaha to get a nice hot vegan meal that may be open on thanksgiving??

If not, is there a place or dish that I just HAVE to try while I'm in town??

I don't know if it's opened on Tgiving, but definitely go to McFosters and get anything with the cucumber ranch dressing and anything with tempeh. And the bahn mi at Daily Grub is the best bahn mi in the world!



awesome!!!! maybe ill have to check ALL of that out.
i love getting some good food in other cities, it feels so exciting and new


I'm not sure about what will be open on Thanksgiving, but you may want to check Three Happiness Chinese or Omaha Ethiopian Restaurant to see if they're open. Other than that, I would say definitely go to Matsu. La Buvette has the best hummus known to mankind, but that's really the only vegan option (it's in the Old Market, if you're down there). Also, Night Flight Pizza delivers vegan pizza until 3am, and their vegan owned, so you don't have to worry about whether or not the cheese is actually vegan (they might be open on Thanksgiving, now that I think of it).

AMAZING. I can't wait to check it out.
My mother doesn't really understand the whole vegan thing, and then I have to feel bad when she makes me an omelet and says... "But theres no meat!!!" I am pretty sure that she doesnt consider Turkey a meat, so I will probably just have to sit there awkwardly and wait for them to go to bed so I can order that Very Vegan Night Flight Pizza!!!!! Which is conveniently open 365 days a year according to their website until 3:30am. OMAHA, whowouldathunk???? i'll have to check out all the other fantastic places for the rest of days there. Thanks for the tips guys!!

Daily Grub posted on Facebook last night that they're thinking of being open on Thanksgiving. You might be able to stop in earlier in the day and pick up something yummy and take it home to eat with everyone else. Since they're still in the deciding phase you could even give them a call and let them know you'd be interested or just find out when they'll know for sure.

That's right! If that doesn't work out, just gorge on Night Flight. Also, the Hy-Vee on 78th and Cass should be open and has Daiya and a pretty decent natural food section. There's also going to be a vegetarian/vegan potluck on Saturday, the 27th at 2pm at Crystal Jade.

there's whole foods too...as a possible last resort. you might be able to pick something up there ahead of time, at least.

does anyone know if the "soy cheese" at ingredient is vegan? ive been there a couple times but i just got salad and forgot to ask about the cheese.

Mama's Pizza on Saddlecreek has a vegan pizza, but it is small and not super great. Choose Night Flight Pizza over them, especially if you're going to be up late! If you like Indian food, then I highly recommend The Taj on 114 and Dodge - there are 10 vegetarian entrees, and the bottom 5 are vegan.

All of the Hy-Vee stores have a really nice health market with tons of freezer section options. I live down in Papillion, and the Hwy 370 and 72nd Hy-Vee rocks - yogurts, ice creams, tofutti products, cookies, entrees, (no cheese yet). I think Daiya is only at the midtown Hy-Vee (but I could be wrong). The Baker's on Leavenworth and Saddlecreek is really awesome too (and close to the Hy-Vee on Center and Saddlecreek). And Trader Joe's just opened in Omaha! It's at One Pacific Place, just down the street from Whole Foods. If you haven't already done so, you should spend some time in the Whole Foods!

And as a side note, my mom and sister didn't really understand what vegan entailed at first. Four years later, we're making some progress, and most of the items at Thanksgiving will be vegan. Give it time and some patience and keep explaining!

The website is awesome! I'm so excited I have a car now that can travel farther than fifty miles without breaking down. And now this lovely website pops up and luckyklutz's Omaha restaurant guide makes me jealous every time. I need a roadtrip this spring.

I'm heading to Omaha in a couple of weeks for work. The Vegan Omaha website is very helpful (so excited to see Natural Kind is still around - I was in Omaha like 10 years ago and dined there, it was great!), but any pointers about good vegan food for delivery? I'll be in a hotel in downtown sans car and probably arriving late in the evening and hungry. I see Nightflight Pizza but was wondering if there were other options. Ideas?

By downtown, do you mean near the Old Market? Night Flight will (obviously) deliver there, but there are lots of vegan options within walking distance as well.

Hmmm... Google maps seems to think I'll be in Downtown Northeast, which seems to be about a mile from the Old Market. Looks like my plane is landing around 10pm so I'm looking for late night options within (very close - no more than three blocks) walking distance, or ideally delivery (I'll be by myself and won't have someone to walk with.) Looks like I'm staying a block or so from the Civic Auditorium building if that's helpful... I know there are lots more options during the day, when I'm more than happy to walk farther!

I think that Night Flight would probably be your best option for late night delivery. It might be a little spendy with the vegan cheese and delivery charge. Another option might be Amsterdam Falafel, but they deliver on bike, so they might not make it down that far, but it can't hurt to check.

During the day, you can hit up Matsu Sushi, La Buvette (get the hummus platter, so good), Upstream (thai chicken salad with portobello instead of chicken), O Asian, Flavors, etc. You're also close to Joslyn Art Museum, which is free before noon on Saturdays and is an excellent example of art deco architecture. There will also be an awesome exhibit on Ukrainian art there opening on February 12th.

Also, if you would like to have a dining partner, or need a ride somewhere (like Whole Foods or Trader Joe's), I am more than happy to oblige. I love showing people around Omaha!

Wow, can't ask for better hospitality than that! Thanks for the tips. I am probably going to be pretty tired the first night there (flying in from an East Coast meeting) and my conference starts first thing the next day, but maybe Wednesday evening Feb 9? Always good to meet Midwestern PPKers! I'll PM you and we can figure out details.
