Plumeria in University Heights is one of their top recommended vegan dining outlet in San Diego.
“Upscale in decor but modest in price, Plumeria sits just at the very north end of Park Blvd. Featuring a menu based around South Asian cuisine, with an emphasis on Thai food, it’s the perfect place for a savory, spicy meal with menu items that eschew fish sauce and other animal products, save for an optional egg in a few instances. As with most South Asian food, Plumeria leans heavily on the spices, though these are adjustable to your taste. The pumpkin curry is especially exquisite. Plus, as a bonus to the environmentally minded, it offers a dollar discount for to-go customers who bring their own containers.”
