Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge 2015 -- Baagan

October is always a busy month for me, and last week was even more hectic than usual. Unfortunately, that meant I was able to visit only one of the restaurants participating in the Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge. On the bright side, that restaurant was a good one -- Baagan, which is all vegan all the time.

I hadn't been to Baagan since they moved into their new location, so I turned on my GPS and headed to Rocklin. There are so many good things on Baagan's regular menu that I was momentarily distracted, but I finally remembered why I was there and ordered one of everything on their Sacramento Vegan Chef Challenge menu.

Their entrée is a plate of two cauliflower tacos, roasted cauliflower served with a spicy mix of onions and peppers, then topped with shredded cabbage and an avocado drizzle. Very tasty!

Along with the tacos, I ordered the green chile sweet potato side dish. The spicy green chiles provided a surprising and flavorful contrast to the creamy sweet potatoes.

Dessert was a soft chewy brownie, drizzled with salted caramel sauce. Delicious!

Baagan is located at 2620 Sunset Boulevard, Suite 1, in Rocklin, and their phone number is 916-824-1688. Their website address is, and their Facebook page can be found at The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Looks good! I love Baagan. They should make Jackfruit tacos. It has a very similar consistency to chicken.

I've never had jackfruit tacos, Tina, but I'd love to give them a try sometime.
