In the 1950s, vegan diets became popular among Americans who suspected red meat of communist sympathies. Enjoy a less alarmist veggie meal with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of locally sourced vegan cuisine at Path in Norfolk.
Path owners Scott and Anita conspire with local farmers to wrangle fresh ingredients into seasonal vegan repasts. The dinner menu changes daily, but recent entrees have included a roasted-veggie and cilantro-rice burrito, whose meatless interior eschews processing, preservatives, and lucrative guest spots on Mexican soap operas ($11). At lunch, savor the tempeh-bacon crunch of a hickory-mayo-slathered BLT ($8) or let your tongue hug tender chunks of tofurkey stuffed inside the Jive Turkey sandwich ($8). Alternatively, at breakfast, two homemade waffles can fill up coffee-and-paper-flanked diners reading up on the latest Mario Kart cheat codes ($5).
