The options for great vegan food in Tulsa have just expanded in a big way.
Emily and Tony Galvez and their children have been vegan for more than four years, and had dreamed about opening a market where vegan options weren’t relegated to a dark corner. Sandos Modern Deli and Provisions, 522 S. Boston Ave., is the place. It’s located just east of the Galvezes’ downtown restaurant and bar, the Local Bison.

Chef Joey Guns has created vegan meat and cheese alternatives; sandwich options; fresh sides; soups; and frozen vegan meals, including lasagna, pot pies, vegan ribs and more available soon.
Sandos also offers omnivore meats, cheeses and sandwiches, as well. Chef Mary Sorensen makes fresh breads and other baked goods. Executive Chef Nicholas Andoe is taking care of the Local Bison as well as developing a menu for the Galvezes upcoming concept, Copaneazi’s Pizzeria and Stone Fire Kitchen, to open this winter.
“It’s truly a group effort from our super talented crew that features everyone’s strengths and passions,” Emily Galvez says.
The market also has a selection of kombucha, salads, local beer and wine, and fun items like “adult lunchable” snack packs and “char-kid-erie” boxes for kids. Both vegan and omnivore meats and cheeses are available by the pound, too. Look for the sandwich of the week, as well as signature sandwiches and a rotating menu of grab-and-go foods. The made-to-order sandwiches are a great way to choose your favorite vegan and omnivore favorites.
