Shiitake Swerve, first announced in May 2012, is finally opening in Denton. This is, as far as I know, the only vegetarian restaurant in Denton aside from UNT’s vegan cafeteria Mean Greens. So this is a big effin’ deal.
Their menu focuses on, surprise!, mushrooms, which you can get either in sandwiches or tacos. All of the tacos are vegan and most of the sandwiches are as well. And everything can be ordered gluten-free, if that’s your thing.
And while we’re talking about Denton, a big shout out to Denton Vegan Cooperative which is still going strong at the Denton Community Market and area restaurants. They’re approaching their two year anniversary. www.dentonvegancoop.com
