Orlando's Dixie Dharma plans to open Tampa spot at Armature Works


Orlando vegan hotspot Dixie Dharma plans to open another location in Tampa food hall Armature Works in April! 

Soon-to-be slinging 100 percent plant-based southern comfort food, DD has sent out a hiring bat signal for all positions to gear up for its launch next month.

Vegans, rejoice! If the new Armature Works tenant plans on sticking to their original menu, Tampa can expect to indulge in some flavor-packed dishes including the Orange Bird, the restaurant's famous open-faced sloppy Joe made up of Florida orange BBQ, creamy house slaw served on a toasted potato bun with a slow roasted garlic spread.

Another banger on the menu are the Hillbilly Chili Dawgs — two "not-dogs" in pretzel buns smothered in housemate Indian-spiced chili n’ cheez sauce topped with blackened onion, scallions and Za'taar spice.

More details to come!
