For about the past three weeks Kasan Red, a restaurant on the corner of Glenwood and Flat Shoals in East Atlanta, has been hosting a vegan night on Tuesdays. In addition to the standard menu they have an assortment of vegan selections. Here is a description I posted on a couple of East Atlanta forums:
Tuesdays Kasan Red offers a vegan menu (along with the regular menu). You can get coupons at SOPO for five dollars off the starter/entree/dessert combo. I went last night, and below is the mini-review I posted on another forum:
I picked up one of the coupons from SOPO yesterday evening, and had dinner at Kasan Red. Since I
don't generally eat out on weeknights and considered this a special exploratory expedition, I went all
out and ordered a starter, entree, and dessert. It turned out pricey, but an overall good experience, and
one consolation is that there was so much food that I don't have to prepare lunch this morning.
My selections were the Veggie Panini, the Vegan Rosti, and a chocolate tart.
It was all delicious. I particularly liked the Veggie Rosti. Also the sweet potato chips were among
the best I've ever had.
The one thing I wish were done differently is the choice of bread for the Panini. I love Panini, but wish
there were more availability of whole grain focaccia. My motivation for my veganism is mixed
(compassion towards animals, environmental and ecological concerns, global economics, and health),
but the part of me which is focused on the health aspects much prefers whole grains to white flour, and
I'll bet there are many other vegans out there who agree with me.
All in all it was a great experience, and the folks there were really friendly.
