The combo plates are an enduring hit, too, and feature such delights as the Mongolian Wonder, which comprises vegan beef, onion, and carrots in a spicy sauce, and the Curry Vegetable Delights, which allows guests to savor a range of flavors. Guests can indulge in Vegan Cheesecake or Vegan Flan to round off their meal.

All items on the menu are vegan and made using natural, seasonal, and local ingredients, with not a speck of MSG in sight.

The owners of Backwater created this venue to provide a relaxed place for diners to enjoy the taste of authentic Southern food in a convivial, welcoming atmosphere.

All of the straws, disposable cutlery, and takeout containers used by Backwater are plant-based and fully recyclable or compostable.
