Overview

Veg Out guides virtually eliminate the difficulty of finding vegetarian and vegan offerings in a world of shish-kabob street vendors and hot dog hawkers. Veg Out Vegetarian Guide books are city specific and provide everything that a vegetarian or vegan diner needs to know to enjoy a meal out, including: ratings for each restaurant, including price, atmosphere, and type of cuisine; must-know details about each venue's culinary offerings; and contact and location information, with a site-specific foldout map of the area.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Part of a series launched in 2003 (for a list of available and forthcoming titles, see www.vegoutguide.com), these vegetarian guides to Chicago and Denver/Salt Lake City include restaurants, fast-food joints, cafes, and salad bars along with appendixes that list juice bars and farmers' and natural markets. In addition to basic information such as address, web site, price, hours, and parking, the entries provided for each of the more than 140 restaurants listed in these 8 1/2" by 3 1/2" guidebooks also include a narrative describing the restaurant's ambience and its featured dishes, an overall rating from one to four stars, and the type of menu, from full-with vegetarian/vegan choices-to vegetarian or vegan only (fewer than 20 percent of the entries). The excellent narrative in particular will be useful in helping readers decide where to eat. A foldout map indicates the location of each establishment, but those unfamiliar with the city may have to consult a detailed street map. Recommended for public libraries located in or near the city covered.-John McCormick, Plymouth State Univ., NH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Going to an ethnic restaurant allows you to get a taste of other cultures without stepping on a plane. And instead of pouring over a map, you get to peruse a menu. One of the best places in the Front Mountain Range to experience authentic Middle Eastern cuisine is Ali Baba Grill. Start off with the savory lentil soup (the noodle soup is also vegetarian) and continue with the Vegetarian Lovers combination that includes fresh perfectly crispy falafel balls, buttery hummus, creamy smooth baba ganoush (roasted eggplant dip), refreshing tabbouleh (bulgur wheat, tomatoes, parsley, onions, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil), fresh pita bread, and more. For dessert, order a cup of the strong Turkish coffee and a baklava, an intensely sweet pastry made with filo dough, walnuts, honey, and pistachios. Close your eyes and listen to the music playing softly in the background, and you'll feel transported, no passport required. Main dishes from $2.75 (sandwich) to $8.95.

Full menu with vegetarian and vegan choices
