Eating Vegan at Outback Steakhouse :)

Saturday, December 18, 2010

Tomorrow is Brad's Birthday and I wanted to take him to dinner at the restaurant of his choice. Brad is a real Meat and Potatoes type of guy and he chose Outback Steakhouse.

I've been eating a plant based diet for about 8 weeks now and I've been to several restaurants, but none as blatantly carnivorous as Outback. I was a tad worried, but soon discovered there was no need to be. I told the server right away that I was vegan and she said one of the waitress was too and would go talk to her about what my options were. he returned right away and suggested a salad meal as well as 2 pasta dishes. In the end, I went with sautéed veggies (no butter) with a plain baked sweet potato and a house salad (no cheese). They seasoned the veggies and grilled them up for me, the manager came out to be sure the meal worked for me and everyone was so nice and very concerned about me. I was really quite impressed. I wouldn't hesitate to return anytime my hubby wants a fat juicy steak.

All in all, it was a really nice evening that ended up with a walk around the mall where he bought 2 gifts for me even though it's his birthday! He is such a good man and I am very lucky to have him. Thank you sweetheart and Happy Birthday - I Love You :)

    Sounds like you two had a great time and everyone was satisfied with dinner - a very successful evening. Good to know that Outback Steakhouse was so accommodating.

    I was wondering how your change in diet was working for you ... obviously well. And more and more restaurants are carrying vegetarian dishes these days.

I hope all is well and that you have a fantastic and safe holiday season.
