Heh, heh! Just as I promised, and after 3,520 miles, we have tasted many delicious and outstanding vegan meals...I know, I did promise you daily updates and I did not make all of them, with two doggies and a husband in tow it was a challenge..and I do apologize...let's get started!
Subway. Yes. If you pick the right ingredients, they can make a vegan sammie. The cheese you see is almond cheddar we brought along. Oh yes, we feasted on crackers and cheese with local fresh picked apples and peaches for a couple of lunches as well ;)
Once in Portland I came to the harsh realization that we would not be visiting Blossoming Lotus, Bye and Bye, Portabello, or Departure. Just not in the stars with the dogs along. No worries! We started our Portland Food Fest with Hungry Tiger Two. Anyone for Carbo loading-- check out the corn dogs! And Kale bowls!
If you crave Mexican, this is the place - they have three locations to serve you. Just say Vegan! The Tofu Tacos were grilled to perfection- smoky and the hot sauces varied according to spiciness -- I love it hot! Queasdillas with Daiya and Fajitas---hmmm.
Quite the happening place.
Sushi Lover in Reno, Nevada is an off the main track attraction! Over 40 vegan sushi rolls! We tried the Tempora Jalapeno, Shiitake Avo, and the Inari Daikon... of course with seeweed salad. These rolls are fat! Best meal hands down guys! If you are within 300 miles, you got to go! Make it a weekend!
We had an outstanding lunch at the Tandoor Halah in Las Vegas. They offer a buffet or order off the menu. All foods are labeled as vegan or not. I felt like I died and went to Tikka Heaven...curries, pakoras, naan, and more.
Yes, we did eat at other venues - I will admit to a buffet or two- we always regret those...never a whole lot to offer, and we stopped at Whole Foods a couple of times as well.
Bottom line, this world is soooo much easier to navigate as vegans than it was in '94 when we went vegan for good.
God bless us all.
Be Vegan. Enjoy your life and be compassionate and true to yourself.
And if you hit the road, check out some of these eateries. Yum.
Until next year.
Long Live Vegan Mofo!
