Any veggie people in Regina? I just had a horrific BBQ experience last night and it would be great to meet some people here who understand why I find buffalo burgers so appalling!

Alberta's even 'beefier' than Regina!



Do you find the people in Calgary more understanding of the veggie thing because it's a larger city or does everyone sport a "I heart canadian beef' sticker on their car?

I'm originally from Windsor, Ontario and it's small enough to have its share of the uninformed and die hard meat eaters but the main industry is automobile production, not farming. I've never been publicly ridiculed because I didn't want to eat a buffalo burger like I was in Regina last night.

OOPS!! I'm sorry. I assumed Calgary when you only said Alberta. My mistake and apologies.

molly, unfourtunately, you came along to late, but The Heliotrope was an amazing veggie restaraunt that closed down on July 24th. sniffle sniffle sniffle. I'm in Hamilton now, but I've heard that The 13th Ave coffee house is amazing for it's veggie food.

The Heliotrope closed? That's the one place that has been recommended to me. Oh well, there are enough Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese places here to choose from.



I live about 4 blocks from the 13th Ave coffee house and although I've never eaten there, I have read their 'specials' chalkboard on the sidewalk and it looks like a vegetarian's delight!



Thanks for the info.

I've been to the Freehouse and found it very easy to find something on the menu that not only I could eat but that actually tasted good.

Also, Brewsters has a great portobello mushroom burger that's pretty tasty.

Now all I need to find is another veggie to hang out with!

Thanks! I just checked out the site. I registered but when I went to log in, it won't let me so I'll try again.



Btw, are your friends veggie? Not that it matters, just wondering.

Hi!

I just wanted to pass on the word that November 1 is World Vegan Day. The Vegan Society has a website set up at <search for world vegan day and it should come up -- the address contains the name: "world vegan day" and "dot org"> and is asking vegans to send in short bios and photos of themselves to show the "typical vegan". (i.e. that there really is no typical vegan).

Check it out.

Has anyone been to the 'Upstairs' - on broadway and 8th. They have a lot of vegan fake meats and really good fondue. I recommend it!

Definitely the Taj Mahal (if you have time & money) is an excellent choice for a nice vegan supper. We have found that India Palace is also delicious and a bit more affordable.

We also go to this little place called Nha Trang, which has a small but yummy vegetarian menu. We have never actually confirmed that it is all vegan, though -- so ask first & report back

I'm moving to Saskatoon in about a year (for school!). I've never been there, just drive across SK on my way home to Ontario from Alberta three years ago.



I look forward to it...from what I've heard & seen, it's a lovely province.

The Green Spot is another wonderful vegetarian cafe located in downtown Regina. I think that they mostly serve thai/vietnamese cuisine. I'd highly recommend it! There is a wide variety of cuisine to choose from, good prices and the staff is very helpful and accommodating!

La Bodega is also a nice place to go if you have some cash to spare.



Mollycat-

It's funny that you mention Brewster's portebello mushroom burger...

Brewster's makes me depressed everytime I go there :P I've only ordered the burger once and I was very dissapointed. After removing the mayo and feta cheese from it I was basically left with a roast vegetable salad and a bun :P



And you're right...thankfully there are many other restaurants in Regina willing to cater to vegetarian diet.
