#VeganDay 5 of NJ’s Best Vegan Restaurants

Hey #HipNJ! Today is #VeganDay! To celebrate, let’s take a look at five of the yummiest vegan restaurants in the area!

1.  Veganized, New Brunswick

Located in the heart of New Brunswick, this vegan eatery is the bomb-diggity! Highlights of the menu include their RAWzagna (gluten-free raw zucchini pasta, marinated mushrooms, fresh tomato, nut cheese, sundried tomato puree, pesto) and the BBQ Skewers (grilled seitan vegetable BBQ skewers, herbed white bean sauce, saffron rice, crusted oyster mushrooms with maple dijon). The undisputed fan favorite is the mackin’ cheese pictured above. It looks so good!

2.  Seed to Sprout, Fair Haven & Avon-by-the-Sea

This down-the-shore vegan joint is the real deal. It offers breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner, teaches cooking classes, and operates a bakery located in Wanamassa. They offer a delicious Maui Wowie smoothie (house-made cashew milk, strawberries, mango, banana, coconut, and fresh tumeric) and a Bacon Cheddar Melt (seared marinated tempeh, caramelized onion, coconut bacon, cashew sauce, riddled on a millet-flax bread). Pictured above is the House-Made Tempeh Chorizo Tacos! Yum!

A charming, farmhouse-inspired eatery, Heart Beet Kitchen has a wide range of tasty foods such zucchini noodles with eggplant meatballs or spicy Buffalo cauliflower sandwich on a gluten-free bun. They also offers some tasty deserts such as a chocolate chip dough bar with almond butter, a pumpkin pie, and a matcha chai. The highly-acclaimed Heart Beet Burger is pictured above. Looks tasty!

4. Papa Ganache, Matawan

Vegan baked goods have never sounded better at Papa Ganache, a vegan/gluten-free bakery! While known for their baked goods including biscotti, cheesecake cups, pies, cookies, cakes and more, they also serve other food such as baked ziti, chili, and pizza. Pictured above is their delicious banana chocolate chip walnut bread, which looks super yummy!

5. Veggie Heaven, Teaneck, Montclair, & Denville

Culturally-inspired Veggie Heaven is known for their Asian fusion food. With favorites like the Thai Bang Bang Chicken, Crispy Stuffed Tofu, and any of their sushi options, it’s hard to go wrong here. Pictured above is a few of their sushi rolls which look absolutely delicious!

Any of these options are a fantastic choice for celebrating #VeganDay! Enjoy the day and try some vegan food if you get the chance!

#HipNJ Celebrates National New Jersey Day

Today is National New Jersey Day, and #HipNJ wants to help you celebrate!

National New Jersey Day is an event created by National Day as part of a weekly project recognizing each state in the order it joined the union. While New Jersey was the third to enter the union, it was the first to sign the Bill of Rights.

New Jersey has so much to offer, so we put together a guide for your Jersey-themed day.

Start off your day by heading to a Garden State diner, maybe Tops Diner in Newark, and picking up a Taylor Ham, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. This is the perfect way to get yourself excited for a day at the Jersey Shore.

 

Taylor gang is on its game today #njdiners #topsdinernj #topsdiner #foodandwine

Now, get in the car and hit Parkway South. A trip to the beach is never complete without some great music, so create a playlist featuring only NJ natives. Here are some suggestions:

  • Whitney Houston
  • Bon Jovi
  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Queen Latifah
  • Lauryn Hill and the Fugees
  • Jack Antonoff of Bleachers
  • Jonas Brothers
  • Ashley Tisdale
  • Lea Michele
  • Halsey
  • Charlie Puth

Think those are enough artists to create the best playlist you have ever heard? We definitely think so.

Time to hit the beach! Are you heading to Atlantic City, Point PleasantAsbury Park or Wildwood? Not today! Today, you’re hitting on of NJ’s most notorious summer spots, Seaside Heights.

Spend the day swimming and tanning, then spend the night walking the iconic (maybe for the wrong reasons) boardwalk. Get a cheesesteak at Midway Steak House and win some dessert on the candy wheel.

The beach isn’t for you? No worries! A day celebrating New Jersey can take many forms. You can appreciate nature by taking a hike in Sussex County. Enjoy the breathtaking views while getting some cardio. Then, head over to a drive-in movie.

Sometimes, all we want to do is stay home and have a night in. So, order some pizza from your local pizzeria, get comfy, and turn on a New Jersey inspired TV show or movie. Here are our suggestions:

  • The Sopranos
  • Boardwalk Empire
  • This Is Us
  • House
  • Cobra Kai
  • Date Night
  • Garden State

New Jersey, thank you for all of the opportunities you give us to enjoy life.

If you do anything on this list, be sure to post a picture on Instagram and use the hashtag #NationalNewJerseyDay!
