Las Vegas has become a culinary mecca for food enthusiasts around the world. While most of the popular fare may be extra decadent, Las Vegas has continued to introduce plenty of places that serve up both tasty and healthy meals. Regardless of what cuisine you’re in the mood for, there are countless restaurants with food that tastes good and is good for you.
Mint Indian Bistro
One of the best things about Indian food is that it can be quite healthy yet never lacks in flavor. Located at 730 E Flamingo Road, Mint Indian Bistro offers a full complement of vegan, vegetarian, and overall healthy options. Serving a variety of curries, masalas, and noodle dishes, there is something for everyone at this full-service Indian restaurant.
It can be difficult to find a good place to eat if you are a committed vegan… unless you’re at VegeNation. Located at 616 E. Carson Avenue, VegeNation boasts a global menu including options such as African yam stew, tamales, and dumplings. It’s not likely you’ll leave hungry! Plus, the restaurant is right by Container Park, making it convenient to stop by after you finish your shopping excursion.
Named after the Japanese term for “enjoyment,” you’ll certainly enjoy the creative Japanese small plates at Raku. Located at 5030 W Spring Mountain Rd, Raku serves innovative and healthy culinary dishes, including omakase, sashimi salad, traditional Japanese steakhouse fare, and vegan options. Make sure to also try their signature tofu dishes while you’re there!
If you are in the downtown area and want to skip the long lines at the buffet, pay a visit to Bronze Café. Located at 401 S. Maryland Pkwy, Bronze Café offers fresh, made-to-order American café fare. It’s a vegan-friendly restaurant with over half of its menu being vegan and vegetarian.
The name says it all, as this innovative eatery blends both healthy and… well, not-so-healthy food items on the same menu. Located at 8680 W Warm Springs Rd, SkinnyFATS offers a dual menu for both the health-conscious and the indulgers. The left side is all healthy, while the right side allows you to indulge in more decadent options. Offering flavorful tacos, wraps, wings, and more, you can hardly tell that the healthy versions are only 600 calories or less!
El Dorado Cantina
Healthy doesn’t always mean low calories and El Dorado Cantina does this well. Located at 3025 Sammy Davis Jr. Drive, the real attraction is El Dorado Cantina’s focus on organic and GMO-free Mexican dishes. Quality, flavor, and clean eating are the calling cards of this awesome restaurant.
While there are many other delicious and healthy eateries in the Las Vegas area, these are just a few favorites. Yes, Las Vegas is definitely a destination to indulge, but you can still manage to have a satisfying dining experience without straying too far from a healthy lifestyle.
