Coyote Kitchen is located in Boone, NC  in a shopping center next to Walmart.  It has been a hangout of ours since it was first created by Mike and Nova Nelson, owners of Hob Nob Farm Cafe (see post).  It is a fusion of Caribbean and Southwestern cuisines, what they refer to as Southwest Caribbean Soulfood.

The new owner has carried on the fine example set by the Nelsons serving farm fresh produce and free range chickens.  Most of the dishes can be made vegan.  I’ve experimented with a variety over the past couple years.  I don’t much care for soy products so I have them replace them with Jamaican lima beans or some other vegetable. My favorites are the boats.

Their vegan standard is the called the Sedona.  This consists of coconut rice, black beans, blackened tempeh, roasted sweet potatoes, corn, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and spinach, topped with sweet red vegan mayo and scallions.  It comes with as choice of salsas.  I like the cranberry habanero and the pineapple chipotle.  The price for this hearty dish is $10.99.

Rich ordered an enormous vegan burrito called the Gabriella.  It is made of coconut rice, blackened tofu, sweet red vegan mayo, sweet potatoes, roasted sweet corn, roasted red pepper and zucchini and yellow squash.  He substituted mushrooms for the tofu and loved the result.  It also comes with a side of salsa at a price of $8.99. Coyote Kitchen has just added some new vegan desserts to their menu which I have yet to sample.  They serve vegan chocolate cake and vegan ginger walnut carrot cake which is also gluten free.  We’ve enjoyed the vegan chocolate peanut butter cake but have recently learned it has been replace by the two we just mentioned. Coyote’s is planning an extensive plant-based menu including vegan burger items and vegan subs.

The ambiance is casual.  The walls are covered with paintings from local artists. You will see a mix of diners from  college students with torn jeans, tattoos and spiked hair to businessmen in tailored suits and ladies in silk dresses. Good food at reasonable prices is a great equalizer. You may also order from a selection of specialty beers on the menu and wine is served as well.  There is also plenty to choose from for your carnivorous friends and colleagues.
