Eating Vegan at TooJay’s Deli

click here to Pin this recipe

    TooJay’s is a Gourmet Deli in the state of Florida, and now that we’re getting a new one in Pembroke Pines, FL (Opening at the End of March 2018, according to their corporate office) I looked up what we as vegans can eat there. I wasn’t expecting to find over 20 items, not counting sides! So bravo to TooJay’s for having more than just salads for those of us who choose to eat without any animal products. All these recommendations are based on the Allergens Menu from November 2017 (the link is at the bottom of this post). Always ask at the restaurant if everything you are ordering is indeed STILL VEGAN.

    If I have missed something or you have a #veganhack for TooJay’s, please share them in the comments.
