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.

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.
