Alma in Pittsburgh, PA

Alma’s Website
Urbanspoon Review

Alma is a restaurant located near Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. It is not a vegetarian restaurant but has a nice selection of vegetarian friendly dishes. As I have mentioned in the past I enjoy spending time in restaurants that can serve both me and my non-veggie friends. Well let me tell you, Alma delivered.

I can tell you that the presentation of every dish was amazing. The service was awesome and the knowledge of every dish was incredible. The menu includes a reference to where the dish comes from. Or at least the nationality from which the dish was adapted from. In the end I had the “Vegetarian plate with quinoa, assorted fresh vegetables and hominy”. Loved it. Except the kale. It is not personal, I don’t like kale. But everything else was amazing. Just look at the picture. It was great.

I have been to Abay, another restaurant from the same owner. I enjoy the other restaurant and this remind me of this. A small cozy place with a nice selection of dishes and a small bar in the back. If you ever come to Pittsburgh, you should certainly visit this place.
