New restaurant in downtown Tuscaloosa focused on vegetarian, vegan options

Downtown Tuscaloosa is welcoming a new business this week geared toward those looking for meat alternatives and tasty vegetable-focused meals.

The Veganish Market is located on University Boulevard across from Tuscaloosa City Hall.

Owner Yazmyn Rozier said their menu features plenty of items catered toward those who are meat averse as well as those who want to dip their toes into the veggie-lovers lifestyle.

“The idea was to create a menu that caters to pescatarian, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and those transitioning into a plant-based lifestyle so that everybody can enjoy the same inclusive space,” Rozier said.

Menu items include sweet potato street tacos, burger sliders, sun-dried tomato pasta and smoothie bowls.

In addition, the market is planning on offering a home for local artists to display their wares, Rozier said.
