it’s annoying to always ask for the ingredients of a meal when eating out with your friends & family, don’t tell me!
i want to give you some ideas on what meals are vegan choices when eating out, so you can start to enjoy going to restaurants again.
it really CAN be fun! 😀
a special tip is to look at the online-menu of the place you plan to visit, if there is one available.
italian restaurants are great places for vegans.
true italians don’t use any eggs in the pizzas & pastas, so all you need to look out for is, of course, the cheese.
i tried pizzas sans cheese & meat and found they were delicious!
oh, if you like, try a pizza sans cheeze, with mushrooms, corn, chillis & of course tomato-sauce. it’s my favorite! 🙂
pasta’s also a goodie. always!
the classical “safe” meal is of course “pasta aglio é oglio”.
but there are different kinds of vegan pestos like “arrabiata”, just ask your waiter & don’t be ashamed!
i love asian food!
there are so many opportunities.
you can always ask the cook if he would be so kind to make you some vegan dish. there are so many vegan ingredients to be found in the asian kitchen, so it will be no biggie for him to create you a vegan meal.
the basic vegan meal that’s mostly to be found on the menu is some dish containing tofu, veggies & rice.
another favorite of mine is vegan maki! i love these lil’ rice-rolls.
go ahead and skip through the menu, or speak up and ask the staff! 🙂
salty, sweet, you can find everything a vegan stomach could ask for!
indian restaurants always offer a variety of vegetarian meals.
you still need to pay attention to dairy, for many indian dishes contain butter, milk and so on.
best thing is to ask the staff & let him know what you can’t eat!
chickpeas, lentils, lots of fresh veggies, potatoes & rice are waiting for you 🙂
FALAFEL-BURGERS! falafel are made out of chickpeas, so is humus.
look for some vegetarian dishes & watch the dairy, for yogurt-sauces are popular.
still you’re gonna find some great dishes & snacks to-go!
p.s.: try a vegan “Kebap”, filled with fresh veggies & vegan sauce 🙂
