Trying to look at eating out today for supper and so many places don't have vegan options or it's crazy limited. Grrrr. emoticon

I think it's already been said but I usually just go out for ethic fare. I'm big into Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, and Mexican cuisine. Sushi joints that sell maki rolls are good, but check the menu beforehand. Vietnamese is good. Heck, even if you're in a small town Chinese food restaurant, you can probably ask them if they have tofu, which they can swap into a noodle bowl, or just ask for extra veggies if they don't or if you're anti tofu. A lot of big chains now offer veggie burgers too- even steakhouses. If you need a vegan option, order a salad and have them hold the chicken. Your offers are likely to be restricted but honestly, it doesn't really matter. If you're willing to go outside your comfort zone, there is some amazing vegetarian and vegan food to be had.

Cheers!

I live in a very small town of 204 and pretty sure I am the ONLY Vegan around. My friends accomidate my needs at BBQ's with mushrooms for burgers but eating out is a real challenge.

I am a vegan and do find that eating out can be challenging. Especially if I have no say in where we are going. If I have any control in the situation, I will do some research online ahead of time and look for a restaurant that will accommodate everyone I the group's preferences (not just mine) and then email a list of potentials to the group. Then I'm not being bossy or imposing my veganism on anyone since everyone gets to vote.

Yelp website and app are a big help.

I've also found that calling a restaurant ahead of time (especially in those situations where I don't control the venue at all) is a great way to get a heads up on what are the vegan options and can even result in the restaurant having a heads up so they can be sure to be prepared for you....

I had to get over not being a PITA and ask for what I need and want and what I dont. You'd be amazed how accommodating restaurants can be.

Mexican, Indian, Mediterranean/middle eastern are my favs.

For fast food chains, I love chipotle, and subway is ok in a pinch.

My fav vegan chain is Native Foods. Second fav is Veggie Grill.

Fav food is my dad's. I do agree that home cooked vegan meals cooked with love is the best. Seems like you just can't get that amazing delicious quality in a vegan restaurant meal.

Ruby Tuesday has a extensive and very fresh salad bar and they offer the Veggie Trio as an entrée. It basically consists of 3 sides. Also, Amy's Flaming Burrito Bar (I think that's the name) offers a very yummy vegan burrito that includes black beans, rice, tofu, and cheddar Daiya cheese among other veggies and salsa. Amy's Flaming Bowl is a buffet restaurant that has tons of veggies including tofu and they stir fry it right in front of you with either rice or noodles. Whole Foods also has a nice hot/cold buffet. Check out your local health food store and perhaps they have a café inside.

We have a lovely Vegan resaurant in Fort Collins, Colorado. Best nachos I have eaten in my life! My problem is that I am the only vegan among family and friends, so it is very difficult to find someone to join me there.

I love having a vegetarian meal because a lot are gluten free. I've gone gluten free and I've noticed if I eat a vegetarian meal it feels great and I know that I won't have something with gluten in it.

Ugh. I live on Okinawa, and there is basically no vegan food here. Beautiful salads that look edible in the the menu photos come slathered in meat unexpectedly. There's a few Thai (yum) places, and an Indian place that has a vegan pumpkin curry (yummy!). And TODAY (seriously, TODAY) a vegan place opened up ACROSS the street from the base where I live! I can WALK to vegan food in Japan! It's catching on! Last weekend (I think) I went to the first ever Okinawa Food Flea (not a typo), and there was a place called Ital's Curry or Ital's Deli or something that had ALL VEGAN options! Vegan Jamaican stew with turmeric rice, vegan Japanese curry, smoothie's, brownies, scones, and more! If only I could find their physical location! The stew was to die for, by the way!

Subway 6" white Italian bread with only veggies. Yummy.
Pappa Murphy's thin pizza with only sauce and veggies (no cheese) then add nutritional yeast at home.
Indian or Thai foods have vegan or vegetarian choices
Mexican substitute beans for meat in tacos or get bean burritos although the calories could be high
Many places have a vegetable plate

My husband is vegan and now realises home cooking is best. We have some very good recipes which helps. I eat mostly vegan too. We do head for Indian or Far Eastern restaurants if eating out vegetarianism is part of some of the cultures there so we can be sure to be getting non meat protein such as pulses. I find a lot of vegetarian restaurants.serve bland fare they would be well advised to seek help from some Hindi community where meat isn't eaten and learn to make the dishes flavoursome.

I agree with REBECCA7436, I look at the menu on line first and decide what I want to order ahead of time. That way I don't even have to bother looking at the menu and I have a good idea of how much the bill will be. Plus I'm never afraid to make special requests.

More and more restaurants are catering to vegetarians and vegans by giving us options.

I'm lucky, my local Mexican restaurant has a veggie fajita and they do NOT use lard in their beans so I'm good to go!

I've had good luck at restaurants by asking the waitress to help me out. They ordered meals and just left out the meat, substituting extra vegs or something to "fill" out the order. Usually I order "a la carte" and order veggie side dishes and stuff. It's usually enough to get me through the meal just fine.

There is a Mexican restaurant near us that has a plate of grilled veggies, with beans and rice. It is SO delicious! The veggies are zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, onions and peppers. I think the beans might use some animal fat, but otherwise almost vegan. There is no cheese. You can order corn tortillas and get less fat and sodium than flour tortillas.

since I'm not a vegetarian or vegan and just aim to eat over 50% of my meals vegetarian, going out to eat isn't that hard. I can always find a good vegetarian dinner. For brunch yesterday had a guesadilla with pinto beans, avocado and jalapeno peppers w/a side of spinach. Couldn't have been better! Most place will modify - there was a breakfast burrito with sausage and they would have taken the sausage out.

I always dread eating out. Not only do I live in a city that caters to omnivores, but I'm always hesitant on whether I want to support the restaurant that is serving meat and dairy. I have gone out and I stay away from the stuff I don't want, but one gets tired of salads emoticon

I agree with you BLUEEGG55, I recently went out for a anniversary dinner and had eggplant parmesean. And I said to myself that while it was OK , I can make it better at home.(then I realized there was probably egg in it to for the breading; oh so much to learn as a newbie vegan) I love your " visual self healing". I always eat with my eyes first too!!

just don't like it but you know it's for greater reasons than the veganism and paying $12 for 3 wilted sides of frozen veggies that were steamed...while watching the people you love eat cow and chicken. it's because the eateries serve so much processed food. they salt, when they say they do not, they use msg, when they say they do not, and they take side cuts like freezing dinner choice (all the major chains) in zip lock freezer bags and you get that in a microwave, heated. it just feels NOT from the ground. i am such an awesome vegan cook in the kitchen - I can make anything clean and full of flavor and my produce is fresh and there for the cooking. sitting around a bread basket watching friends and family eat white rolls, butter, salad dressing drenched in thousand island chemicals, cow cooked raw with blood oozing out and pizza with cheese dripping off it, and bread sticks on the side and ice cream for after doesn't do it for me. None of my friends and family are vegan so these excursions are exercises in food futility for me. at least visually. it's one of the bummers of being the only in a large circle of friends and family. therefore, until that can get cleaned up you will see ME eating at home. i love my restaurant - it's one in a million and the price is right.

i did go through a faze of salads and sides at the cow places they pick. i am over that now. and prefer to stay home for a bit food wise and play with cookbooks and make masterpieces. :). it's called visual self healing.

I live in a state that has NO vegan restaurants at all & one vegetarian restaurant (which is over 200 miles away from me), so eating out is always about making choices within the confines of a "traditional" restaurant. Going ethnic is ALWAYS choice # 1, especially Indian, Thai, Japanese. A Mexican restaurant in our area actually has a lot of vegetarian options, that can easily be made vegan when asking for no cheese. It is challenging not to have things soaked in oil and/or sodium, so eating out is best limited: lighter on the pocket book too!

I travel with my Mom every year and find certain areas of the country to be the real challenge. This will be my first year on a diet. I use the happycow website for wherever we go. I ask a lot of questions and this year there will be even more. I LIKE the fact that being veg omits A LOT of fast food (calorie wise). We do Chipotle often as the ingredients are fresh, not swimming in oil and often locally sourced.

Hey everybody! :)

I'm new to this group but just thought I would introduce myself by sharing: I know someone already shared the link to the happy cow website (here it is again: www.happycow.net), but there is also a happy cow app that you can conveniently download on your phone! It's perfect for finding vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants in the area!

I live in Glasgow in Scotland. We are relatively lucky (though it pains me to admit it Edinburgh is a wee bit beter).

We havea group of pubs which include the Flying Duck http://www.flyingduckclub.com/, The 78 http://www.the78cafebar.com/, Mono www.monocafebar.com, and Stereo http://www.stereocafebar.com/ which all do fully Veg and Vegan food (Stereo is totally vegan on the food side but the bar has Guinness amonst it's choices), Then the 13th Note a pub with an entirely Vegetarian menu.

Local coffee shop chain Icafe has veg choices in both their tapas and sandwiches and a few vegan choices too plus you can get soya milk http://www.icafe.uk.com/. Anothe local bakery called Tapa has a menu with veg and vegan options 50p extra for soya milk. http://www.tapaorganic.com/ Loads of Indian restaurants and a couple of Chinese ones that do great bean curd dishes.
A stir fry place called Wok to Wok (it's a franchise as my mate went into one in Amsterdam and it was identical), where you can have tofu and veggies and they use a seperate wok for meat free stuff.

I'm so lucky to live near lots of vegan choices. I don't try in Thai places, though, because there's fish sauce in everything. Instead, I learned to cook my favorite Thai dishes.

I love Spiral Diner out here in DFW and mostly cook at home, but one suggestion I have is to think about what you can add to dishes when you ask for ingredients to be taken out in dishes. For example, I enjoy Thai soups but they usually have shrimp or chicken. I used to say "please no shrimp or chicken", now I ask what else I can get in it -- extra veggies, tofu, etc.

I've also discovered that avocado can make sauces creamy and dairy-seeming so it's a great thing to add to dishes and doesn't hurt to ask if there's any in the kitchen.

Going to Orlando for the week. I plan on stocking up the fridge at the Condo with stuff from the wholefoods there, and then eating out will just be a hunt and peck type situation.

PTREE15, I got to Blackbird awhile ago and it was awesome. My husband who is not veg even liked the pizza. We got a few desserts (a whoopie pie for my daughter and a some kind of brownie for me) for later; I don't even want to know the calorie count for them but they were delicious! I just saw the other day where Vedge has come out with a cookbook; looks interesting.

Going to Chinese buffet today and there should be lots of veggies to chose from. emoticon

“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...”

@Opus56....Oh, how I MISS Philly. I lived there for 11 years and frequented Horizons (same owners as Vedge) for years. I also LOVE Blackbird Pizzeria. Every time I visit Philly, I make it a point to hit the pizza place. Their cubano sandwich is to die for. They sell vegan desserts (made locally, I believe) as well. The vegan whoopie pies rock! I've yet to try Vedge because it opened after I left Philly. My friends tell me it's awesome, though.

I think someone else has mention it too, that you can make a pretty unique meal from side dishes. Vegetable soup, salad and bread. I don't eat pasta, rice or bread, so it's even trickier for me. Ask the server too! Sometimes they can come up with some pretty clever ideas (then just be sure to leave a pretty clever tip). :)

My son, daughter in law and I (all vegans) went to a pizzeria in York PA that is very close to a college campus. They make "regular" AND Vegan pizza! I was in heaven. It's always so exciting for me to eat in a restaurant that can cater to vegans - I feel free! (and, ultimately....full!) emoticon

Did anyone else catch last week's Chopped on the Food Network? First show I remember where all chefs and basket items were vegetarian. So glad to finally see such a thing. The winner was from Philly, where I currently live, and he owns a nice sit-down restaurant called 'Vedge' that is all vegetarian.

I went out of town for work and was happily surprised to find a "Vegan Option" entree listed on the menu of the restaurant my friend and I found. It was spaghetti squash with mushrooms, onions, peppers and other veggies. Unfortunately, it was swimming in about a half cup of oil. But believe me, it was yummy!

I was away on vacation for one week - I am a vegan so it can be very challenging. I did the best I could and, I think, ate healthy. My husband and I were traveling with another couple so I wasn't always in control when it came to picking restaurants. I had some very satisfying meals that I made out of side dishes. A baked potato and steamed broccoli was very filling. thanks for the Chipotle tip.

I enjoy going to Chipotle, they have the veggy bowl that I like with black beans and brown rice. It is a great choice for a quick meal.

Most restaurants have salads and vegetable side dishes. Don't be fooled by vegetable soups or rice dishes. I always ask if they are made with chicken stock. These can be just as good (actually better) with a vegetable stock base. Many chefs rely too much on chicken stock.

I think you are going to love Columbus! I live in Columbus Ohio, and it's wonderful for vegetarians and pretty good for vegans I think.
www.vegguide.org/region/256 is a list of restaurants etc that will help. I personally am fond of Whole World Pizza (get the specials), Northstar Cafe, and Aladdin's. Lots of good ethnic restaurants too (Indian, Greek, etc).

This is a great time of year because so many farmer's markets running. I go to the one in Worthington every Saturday, maps.google.com/maps?bav=on.2,or.r_q

We've transitioned to vegan in the last few weeks and I have found it is much harder to find food at a restaurant but not impossible. We went to a cinema cafe and found veggies, sweet potato fries and a black bean burger with a wheat bun. Also our local natural food store has a cafe offers food for nearly any diet. Lastly Disney is amazing when it comes to eating with restrictions. They will walk you through the menu and even give you a meeting with a chef. There is also a Vegan (also gluten free) Bakery in Downtown Disney that has 100% animal free products. So you have to be creative but you can find foods that are meat free but still meet your calorie goals.

I've found that it's a good practice to eat before going to a restaurant. The only reason I go out is for social reasons, so nobody really cares if I just pick at a side salad all night.

lots of resturants now have the option to sub a hamburger patty for a veggie burger patty, like red robin, burger king. also if u order something omit the meat and sub with veggies, like at olive garden i omit the chicken and add broccoli. if not ask for it to be serve on a different plate that way someone else can eat it.

Push harder!!

I have real trouble when eating out. Because I'm a really fussy eater anyway let alone the fact I'm a vegetarian! I will usually end up not eating anything because there is just nothing nice on the list, and all my family are meat eaters so we go where they want to go always.

I've found that you can be a little creative and most restaurants are really great about editing! A few times I picked something that I would have eaten with meat and substituted or went meatless. You can definitely ask the server too.

I think you'll find some places this wont work and you'll have to settle for salad, but most places do!

OMG The vegan choice I was given in one restaurant was so high in fat!!! I opted just for a grilled veggie sandwich

I started out top weight 245 but that was when I actually got on a scale. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Over the years I've learned that I do so much better when I eat organic foods and I haven't eaten red meat in years I have been gradually working more raw foods, vegetables and fruit into my diet. I avoid drive through resturants like the plague.

The two things I have found helpful are 1. order meat on the side (my toddler LOVES it and some how with constant dieting it's more acceptable) and 2. if you are allergic (or get sick from eating something as is the case with my IBS) inform your server when placing your order. In order to avoid a lawsuit some even have to notify the manager on duty and they personally ensure that your food is correct.

I ate out tonight, for the first time since I really cleaned up my eating, and it was a challenge. I went to a meetup meeting, which was held at at a bar. Being a vegetarian, bar food is always a challenge anyway. Trying to go vegan as well and watching calories made it doubly so. In the past, I would have ordered something like the artichoke dip, which I would have thoroughly enjoyed, but I don't even want to think about how much fat & calories are in that, and it's full of cheese, too. I simply had a side salad of iceberg lettuce, one cucumber slice, and one pale tomato slice. I kept the calories down to a minimum, and I guess I felt like I'd eaten something, but ... I would rather cook well for myself and eat at home! That said, there are good restaurants around where I enjoy eating well and healthily.

Many restaurants now offer veggie burgers they certainly have come a long way but if not you can always rely on the old "fall back" option and get various side items. If you're vegan you may have a hard time but vegan restaurants do exist just seem to be few and far between. Check out my page for more information. pinterest.com/awarenesshelps/eat-out

On a road trip this weekend, I wanted something to munch on and while at the gas station, I started going through what candies I could eat. Being vegan and gluten-free, it was harder than I thought. So when I brought up my mints to the counter, the lady giggled and said all that for these!? I said I was just checking ingredients, you never know what's in what you eat! She seemed intrigued!

I like when things I do make a little wave in some people. Although most times I do seem strange to others, I like to see that flicker of interest!

Milwaukee is the best place for veggies! It's like second nature. Almost every where you go there are good choices for us! LOVE IT!!

Unless I stick with salad there aren't many options on the menus in my area. The restaurants don't like being asked to modify an orders unless it's for burgers. They act like it's a big deal to leave the beef and cheese out of my pasta dish. If it's being made fresh like they claim I can't understand why this would be a big deal.

One waitress asked me what I have against beef. I told her I don't have anything against cows, I just feel animals have feelings and a right to enjoy a long wonder life as well as we do. I also told her that I know everyone doesn't agree with my view and that's ok with me. Didn't stay to eat at that restaurant.

At first if you don't succeed, try, try again!

Megamillions135, that has been much more my experience. I think it depends on what part of the country you're in (and what country, for that matter!). In my area, I'm still very much the alien creature in most restaurants. But I figure if we keep asking nicely and sort of expecting them to understand, maybe someday they will provide options for the aliens.

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

I had my first experience with having a few issues at a restaurant. My friends and I are going on a weekend vacation, and we had a $50 gift card for dinner one night. I'm the only gluten-free/vegan so I called to see what they could do. Their customer service was lacking and after a few emails I got an answer. I just felt like I was doing the right thing calling/emailing before I came in, but they were impatient and annoyed by my questions like they just didn't have time for this non-sense!

Oh well, I got my answer!

I haven't had much issue either. I like to eat at places that are willing to modify things to make them vegan. There are a few places in my town that will do this.

I've never had a problem dining out as a vegan. If there isn't a vegan option on the menu it's usually easy enough to put together a combination of sides that are vegan. However, I have noticed that most restaurants feel sorry for you when you aren't partaking in animal products and tend to serve HUGE sides to compensate for the lack of meat and dairy on your plate. This is great when ordering steamed veggies, but not so great when they bring you the biggest baked potato they had on hand!

SELF_RESPECT and Snowflake66, Do you live near Lancaster? There's a new vegan/vegetarian place near central market that's really good; called The Seed. They're on Facebook if you'd like to check them out.

I love trying the vegetarian and vegan items on menu's to see how they taste before I make them at home....but I've noticed that restaurants typically use a lot of oil.

I ordered baja fajita veggie tacos and there was nothing on them but veggies and when I went home the calories were over 800!! Had to have a ton of oil in them. I haven't tried asking about if they'd fix the veggies with water....has anyone asked this before at a restuarant?

I usually dont have trouble finding something on the menu. I am very thankful for knowledgeable wait staff. Once I went out with friends and we were just about to order spinach artichoke dip (my favorite splurge) when we were advised that it has chicken broth in it. Now I ask every time I order any dip at any restaurant if it has broth in it.
