Pittsburgh is where I live. I wouldn't necessarily call it my home town because I didn't grow up here. I moved here in 2006 with husband and that’s that.
Pittsburgh is known for lots of things; the Steelers, bridges, colleges, sandwiches with French fries on it. One thing it is not known for is being a hotbed of vegan delights.
Fortunately we have a couple of places that shine in “Americas Most Livable City” for their vegan fare. One of those is a delightful gem in the Garfield neighborhood called The Quiet Storm. It’s a mixed vegetarian and vegan restaurant that has lots of yummy items on their menu including their famous Spicy Peanut Wrap (OMG YUM), Home fries (delicious), and Cheesy Snake (a vegan hoagie-mmm).
I went to the Quiet Storm a few weeks ago with my friend Lauren for a smorgasbord of vegan yum yums. Doesn’t it just make you feel good when all of the vegan items are clearly labeled on the menu and you don’t have to ask the server a million questions?
Lauren had the Spicy Peanut Wrap, which is a spicy gift from god.
I had the house burger, which is slightly larger than my head... and delicious!
We both had vegan milkshakes. They look equally as good as they taste.
We rolled out with full bellies and happy faces. So raise your glass (of vegan milkshake) to Quiet Storm. It’s a delightful veg restaurant in Pittsburgh and DEFINITELY worth a visit. So, go…. Now…!
And PS, some of the servers are really cute… *bad chubby vegan*
