Shouk proves that plant-based eating doesn't have to be boring. Its chef puts a Mediterranean spin on vegetarian and vegan fare, offering pitas, salads, and smaller snacks. The mushroom pita earns rave reviews, stuffed with cauliflower, asparagus, arugula, za'atar sauce, and tahini in addition to the mushrooms. If you want to skip the pita, you can enjoy the same ingredients atop a bowl of rice and lentils instead.
The black bean pita goes a different direction with sweet potatoes, red peppers, tomato, arugula, and spicy harissa sauce. Prefer a salad? The signature Shouk salad features a mix of freshly plucked and roasted vegetables, plus pistachios and tahini vinaigrette. You can even enjoy a plant-based Shouk "burger" with tomato, pickled turnip, charred onion, tahini, and greens on top. Pair your chosen dish with a snack like the sweet potato fries with cashew labneh or the polenta fries topped with tomato sauce.
