Vegan Restaurants in Myrtle Beach
Whether you’re new to the ways of veganism or if you’re an old hand at going meat and dairy free, it can be difficult to keep up your dietary diligence when you’re on vacation. But, there are options for vegan fare in Myrtle Beach, you just need to know where to look! Here’s a list of a few places where diners can get vegan grub—not all are totally vegetarian or vegan, but they do all offer at least some dishes free of animal products.
803 S. Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, SC
This is one of the newer restaurants in Myrtle Beach that specifically targets a health-conscious customer. The owners serve what they call “fresh food fast,” a quick, inexpensive meal made up mostly of plant-based food, including build-your-own salads and wraps. Protein options include meats and cheeses, as well as tofu. The customized salads and wraps start at $6.99 with four toppings, and additional toppings can be added for anywhere from $0.79 to $2.69.
Sobaya Japanese Bistro
3590 St. James Ave., Myrtle Beach, SC
Asian food is always a great choice for vegans, and Sobaya has a number of choices that will please those looking to avoid animal products. Start with an appetizer of lightly salted edamame pods, then enjoy a noodle bowl with tofu, vegetables and mushrooms in veggie broth or vegetable fried rice.
7611 Highway 17 N., Myrtle Beach, SC
This hidden gem on northbound Highway 17 in Myrtle Beach is a fully-stocked health food store in front and a café in back, serving delicious salads, soups, wraps, smoothies, sandwiches and more. The menu abounds in vegan and vegetarian options, and often features fresh organic ingredients, as well. The menu is clearly marked for vegan, gluten free and vegetarian diners.
Habibi’s Café and Market
3310 Waccamaw Boulevard, SC
Habibis is another local’s secret: it’s located off highway 501, but off the beaten path of tourists. And while this restaurant isn’t vegan—in fact, one of the specialties is meat kabobs—you can get a number of vegan treats here, including superlative hummus and baba ganouj. Also be sure to try the tabbouleh and pickled turnips.
Redi-ed Ethiopian Cuisine
746 Main Street, Myrtle Beach, SC
There are a few meat-based dishes at this Ethiopian restaurant, but there are numerous options for vegans. Try the green split peas cooked with onions, garlic and ginger root; gomen, a collard greens dish cooked with garlic, onions, and a blend of spices. The food is served with spongy vegan flat bread that’s used, along with your fingers, to pick up the delicious, almost Indian curry-like concoctions.
