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.

Get ready for a hands-on (i.e., utensil-less) eating experience. Foamy pieces of flat, sour injera bread serve as knife, fork, and spoon to scoop up the twelve vegetarian entrées ($6.50 to $9.25). A good way to sample is via the veg combo ($11.50), where diners choose four dishes. One combo can suffice for two timid eaters, but it's best for heartier eaters to get their own. Choices include timatim fitfit (injera pieces sautéed in jalapeno, onion, and tomatoes), azifa (cold lentils, tomatoes, and jalapeno seasoned with ginger, garlic, lemon, and olive oil), and yeater kit wot (stew with yellow split peas cooked with garlic, cloves, and cinnamon). The spices in the sambusa appetizer, a lentil-stuffed fried dough pocket, taste fresh-ground. Sambusas are available on weekends only. Tej, a traditional sweet honey wine, smoothes the injera's tang. Colorful Ethiopian folk art and carvings decorate the walls, making Wrigley's ivy-covered outfield seem worlds away.
