Looking for an intamate downtown pizza joint with a full vegan menu? Look no further than Pala on Allen and East Houston! This small pizzeria serves up delicious vegan pies unlike anything I have ever tasted! After several trips with my vegan pizza eating partner in crime, my friend Ian, we have sampled half of the appetizers, pizzas, and pastas on the menu! Not to mention the vegan chocolate cake served with soy ice cream for desert!
Pala delivers and accepts reservations (you need one during peak hours). Don’t just take my word for it try Pala for yourself!
This awesome mini-review couldn’t have come at a better time! The Gothamist published a rundown of five (six, really) NYC pizzerias that are offering vegan options throughout the month of November (aka Vegan Month, dontchaknow), including Pala. I tried to republish it this morning but gave up ‘cause I couldn’t get the formatting to cooperate. (I give you guys my all. ALL 75% OF ME!) So this is the perfect segue with which to link to it instead. LINK! The pizzerias mentioned are Two Boots, Pala, Pizza Plus, Vinnie’s Pizzeria, Viva Herbal Pizzeria, and the Jersey food truck The Cinnamon Snail. Click on the links to see which of the restaurant’s nomz have been featured on this here tumblog.
By the by, notice the headline? Misleading much, right? “Who needs cheese? Five Vegan Pizzas That Will Fill You Up” … some of which are covered in VEGAN CHEESE. We saw what you did there. Tsk, tsk.
