Even during the coronavirus pandemic, metro Phoenix diners can find a variety of restaurants serving vegan and vegetarian versions of Cajun, Indian, Mexican and Thai dishes.
Restaurants must abide by instructions from the governor’s office to close dining rooms and switch to takeout, delivery or drive-thru service to try and slow the spread of the virus.
