Everything Vegan at Newk's (Dec-2019)
Newks is a more “modern” style eatery that has a larger menu than many small quick restaurants like them, which thankfully spills over into their vegan options to some degree.
You really have to look deep into the Newk’s Menu and get in contact with them directly to figure out all the vegan options at their restaurants — so that’s what we did!
Newk’s Allergen menu only lists a few options, as it doesn’t list all the ingredients out separately, but rather just the menu items they sell. This means as a vegan you can customize certain dishes like their Pizzas and make them 100% Vegan!
Newk's Vegan Pizza Options:
- Veggie Pizza (No Goat Cheese, No Mozzarella)
- Build-Your-Own Pizza without cheese
Newk’s Pizzas are quite good, albeit a bit on the smaller size (they’re not meant for sharing), including some yummy vegan toppings like Portabella mushrooms, many types of bell peppers, artichoke, whole tomatoes, some beautiful beautiful red onion slices, etc.
They brush oil that contains garlic on the crust, and it should be 100% Vegan as well, so don’t worry if it’s a bit wet or shiny. It shouldn’t be butter, it should be tasty garlic oil.
Newk's Vegan Salad Options:
- Taco Salad (No Chili/Meat, No Cheese or Sour Cream)
- Triple Take Salad (No Pasta Salad or Meat)
- Chopped Italian Salad
- Grilled Veggie Salad (Request no Cheese, often unavailable now)
- Balsamic Vinaigrette
- Ginger Wasabi Dressing
- Greek Dressing
- Italian Dressing
- Raspberry Vinaigrette
- Sherry Vinaigrette
- Avocado Chunks (Topping)
- Pico De Gallo (Topping)
- Mixed Fruit (Topping)
Vegan Sandwich Options at Newk's:
- Avocado Sandwich (Off-Menu)
- Vegetable Sandwich without cheese (Off-Menu)
- Build-Your-Own Sandwich
- White Bread
- 11-Grain Bread
You can put everything from the pizzas on the Sandwiches and vise versa, so you can get a pretty nice sandwich going, especially with avocado and maybe pico de gallo from the salad options on it. You can never go wrong with an Avocado Sandwich.
Vegan Soup Options at Newk's:
- Grilled Vegetable Soup
Newk’s makes different Soups each day, so they may not always have the Grilled Vegetable Soup available, however generally they do have it. Due to all the other good vegan options Newk’s has it shouldn’t be an issue if they’re missing this option though.
You can get the soup with half a salad as a meal, or simply add some bread to “bulk” up the soup.
Vegan Side Dishes at Newk's:
