It was a great experience going to Daily Veg, a new vegan restaurant in
Newark, Delaware.
Daily Veg is located on the busy, bright main street of the University of Delaware
campus. With the hustle and bustle of students and locals walking around, it is
in a great location, and it is the first 100% vegan restaurant that students
can walk to. The first thing I noticed was how kind the workers are. They asked
if I had ever had vegan food before, and then fully explained the menu. The
menu consists of fresh smoothie bowls, homemade milkshakes, and soups, salads,
burgers, wraps, and more!! I decided on the Daily Chick’n Deluxe Sandwich with
Kale Salad, and also a bowl of Tomato Basil Soup. Since I was dining with
friends, I also got to try the Crispy Chick’n Caesar Salad. As we headed to an
outdoor table after ordering, they rushed out and disinfected it prior to us
sitting down – I was impressed by how observant and proficient they were. They
brought us our food in under ten minutes!

     Regarding the food, it all
was wonderful. The Chick’n Deluxe was very flavorful, with lettuce, tomato,
onion, pickles, and a garlic herb aioli that packed a punch! The patty was
house-breaded, juicy, and had an incredible texture. You would not think this
sandwich was vegan! For the price, it was big and filling. The kale salad it
came with was simple but the perfect pairing for such a large meal. Next was
the Tomato Basil soup – honestly, the best I have ever had. It was piping hot
when it came out, had the perfect amount of seasoning (great basil flavor), and
was a very large serving that I could not even finish. I was so glad I got to
try some of the Crispy Chick’n Caesar next – it tasted exactly like what I
remember a typical restaurant Caesar salad should be, in vegan form! Fresh
lettuce, creamy dressing, and Chick’n that was crunchy and delicious.

     I would definitely come back
to Daily Veg, and soon. Even though the place may seem small, they have a good
amount of seating indoors and a modern and inviting environment. The prices
were reasonable, the food was great and came out fast, and the staff was
grateful to have us. What more could you ask? Visit Daily Veg in Newark, DE, or at their
other location in Pike Creek,
