Taco Del Sol is our go-to tex-mex place to get half a day’s worth of calories on the cheap. They offer pinto, black and refried beans, as well as rice, lettuce, cabbage, and pico de gallo with medium, hot and tomatillo sauce. Be sure to ask for wheat or corn tortillas to avoid animal byproducts. Staff are always friendly and the music is good, real good. They even have cervasas! Check barnivore to see if your cervasa choice is vegan.
So as you may have noticed, updating Garden City Vegans has not been a high item on our to-do list. Why you ask? Because it’s summertime in Missoula. And well, summertime in Missoula is magical. We have been floating the Clark Fork, drinking local microbrews in the sun, tossing the Frisbee, taking pug face to the Bark Park, tending the garden, bike cruising, and taking long strolls as the sun goes down.
Realizing that the university semester begins on Monday, we felt that a vegan survival guide was needed as newcomers settle into their home. We weren’t sure what form the guide would take, but came to the conclusion that we should just share our favorites. This probably means we’re missing out on some excellent spots, so feel free to share your favorites! Also, please police. If an item we list isn’t vegan, tell us, we don’t want that shit in our mouths. We do our best to ask very specific questions in regards to the preparation of food, but as you know everyone has their own ideas. Lets leave it at that.
We have no idea what we want to eat for dinner. We head to the GFS in hopes that something will whisper to us softly. The Good Food Store is a natural foods store that has a large deli with multiple lines and a coffee bar. In addition, it has all the ingredients needed to make a beautiful meal at home. The staff is super friendly and will gladly answer questions. Items are typically marked if they are vegan.
In the to-go case:
Tofu salad sandwich
Dips and spreads like hummus and salsa
Chocolate chip cookie dough
Black Bean Quinoa Salad
Kung Poa Tofu Rice
Potato salad (oil based)
Other seasonal selections
Excellent selection of vegan-friendly ingredients and the most awesome-est dressing ever, Planet Good Food Store dressing. We haven’t been getting soup lately but the cooler months are fast approaching, and they are usually tasty and hearty meals.
Use your detective skills to find out which items are vegan. We love the giant white beans, garlic stuffed green olives, dolmas, and gherkin pickles.
Breakfast burrito fixings…we like to make ours with tofu, potatoes, salsa, avocado, spinach and a generous helping of frank’s sauce.
Other than that, I have been underwhelmed with the vegan selections on the lunch and dinner hot bar.
Fresh squeezed juices
All fruit and veggie smoothies like the Dreamin’ Green and the Tutti Frutti
Soy milk available for coffee drinks
The Gatherer, a black bean burger. We get ours with rice cheese, veganaise/ ketchup, and all the fixings on a ciabatta roll. Check with the staff to see if your bread choice is vegan.
The Ruby T. Tempeh style reuben. Ask for no cheese.
Build your own. Oh the possibilities. Tempeh, tofu, cheeze, veggies…
Chocolate chip/oatmeal raisin cookies, lemon poppy seed cakes, brownies, breads and seasonal selections.

My partner and I had a fabulous lunch at the brand spankin’ new Five on Black. They are located at 325 North Higgins in a small but adorable space. Everything except the meats, Feijoada, and Pao De Queijo are vegan. We had a veggie bowl on a greens base, a side of collard greens, and the acai bowl. Both dishes were super tasty, moderately priced, and healthy(ish)! We will be posting pictures and a review soon.
