Hello everyone! This is Jackie and Stina, founders of Stockton Vegan Living. Our group’s mission is to show people how to find vegan options, which means, plant-based food (no animal meat or animal byproducts such as milk or eggs), in Stockton, and to create community events for those interested in vegan choices and lifestyles. We are happy to report that Los Angeles and the SF Bay Area aren’t the only places for vegan food. It is getting easier to access plant-based restaurants and meals all over the State.
We’d like to share some of our favorite restaurants to eat vegan here in our hometown of Stockton, CA.
Just across the street from Wal-Mart on Hammer Ln, Shan E Punjab is an all vegetarian restaurant with buffet items featuring many vegan or veganizable items. A restaurant like this is unique in the Central Valley area, our vegan friends from out of town even travel here from time to time. Ask your servers what is vegan and they will both accommodate you and direct you to the right items. Avoid butter on your naan by ordering roti. If you happen to come here during dinner time, you can also order any dish vegan made with coconut cream instead of dairy cream. Warning: they do not hold back on flavors or spices here! Aside from some unique tofu dishes and soya kebobs, pictured below is our favorite dish!
