Mozzarella and Nacho Cheese in the Stoney Point Shopping center at Good Foods! They also have lots of bulk items and vegan things like carob covered rice cakes. They have lots of vegan snacks. They are really nice there and another good HFS is Ellwood Thompson's they have a deli, salad bar and bulk items, lots of frozen stuff. The Ukrops on MIdlothian has good selection and the one in Colonial Heights is almost as good. Shannon

Soymilk is really cheap at Wal-Mart in Lynchburg. My first vegan discovery.

Did you say.... New Malls? Where?



And I was wondering, as I never go out to eat....

Can you reccomend a good place to go out to eat?

I have been to Don Jose's in Colonial Heights and they were very accomodating to my vegan diet and I obviously have eaten at Ellwood Thompson's (I love that store)....

But I want Authentic Falafels on fresh pitas with Tabbouleh and tahini sauce, hold the cow yogurt.

I haven't tried any restaurants, I was wondering if you know of any

Ever since I saw that episode of Food 911 I have been craving Authentic Falafels. TIA!

Shannon

Shannon, I think the Short Pump shopping center opened this weekend and the Stony Point one is supposed to open the middle of the month.



Kat, How is RMWC? That's where you are, right? I hope you are adjusting well. I heard there is a great Indian restaurant in Lynchburg that has vegan options. It's on Ward's Road but that's all I know. I want to try it out myself.



If anyone is in the Harrisonburg area...I went home this weekend and my mom took me out for my birthday. There is a new totally vegan restaurant downtown called "14 carrots." It was good. I had falafel with yummy sweet potato fries. My mom had the portobello mushroom sandwich. They make their own pita and rolls. They have a bunch of sandwiches, several appetizers, a few entrees, and some desserts. We also had tomatoes stuffed with saffron rice and kidney beans and for dessert we split the chocolate cake and cran oat squares. They are owned by the guy who owns Dave's Taverna if anyone is familiar with it. Worth a try if you are in the area.

I'm across the river in Maryland. There should probably be a DC forum here to avoid having state lines prevent veg people in the area from meeting each other. Then again, for being border states, MD and VA are admittedly pretty different.



If you're in Vienna, I hope you visit Sunflower often.

Yes, I actually LOVE Sunflower (who wouldn't) and Ama's Vegetarian Kitchen.

Have you ever been?

Sunflower is indeed completely worthy of love.



And, oh right, there is an Amma's in Vienna - I have only been to the one in Georgetown. I thought it was ok, but not nearly as good as Udupi (if you've ever dared to cross the river into MD).

Nope can't say I have...Marylanders can be shady

Kidding of course. Never been to Udupi. Is it strictly vegan/veg? Do they have a website? You sparked my interest

You are suspicious of us Marylanders with good reason.



As a matter of fact, there is a web site: http://www.udupipalace.com This site covers all 3 of their restaurants, but you should be able to figure out the local one. Hint: it's not one of the Chicago locations.....



Udupi is all vegetarian although not entirely vegan. (I'm not sure if there is an Indian vegan restaurant *anywhere* - yogurt and paneer are staples in a lot of Indian cuisine). That said, they have plenty of vegan options, and the staff happily answers menu questions. The only drawback about the place is the location; it's not the kind of place where you want to go for a nice stroll through the neighborhood after dining.



Damn, I sure could go for a paper dosai right about now...... My browser is having problems with the smilies, but if I could, I would place one of the drooling faces right here.

Thank you for your trust in my reading abilities, I indeed managed to figure out which one the MD location was It seems worth the trip.

The palak dosai is probably worth 3 drools. At the other end of the spectrum, though, are some of the items on the Udupi dessert menu. Even if I did dairy, deep-fried dry milk and cottage cheese balls just do NOT sound appealing.

deep-fried dry milk? Huh, who knew

I am taking baby steps towards veganism right now. I cut out pure milk and eggs, but will still eat foods that are made with them occasionally if nothing else is around.

Also cottage cheese balls...interesting concept...NOT!! Lol

I truly love Indian food, but in my opinion, they are a LONG way away from mastering the dessert course. Check out the descriptions on their menu: "Homemade cottage cheese in a special condensed milk flavored with rose water and garnished with pistachio nuts." That sure doesn't sound like dessert to me.....



And I won't even speculate about their dessert consisting of "grated carrots cooked in

Horney and Butter." Man, I sure hope that's a typo........

Ground almonds cooked in Horney and Butetr



Carrot Halwa

Grated carrots cooked in Horney and Butetr





Wow, "horney" and "butetr" seem to be the main ingredient in almost all of the deserts



After talking about Sunflower I decided to treat myself to a meal there tonight

Give the Udupi management credit for shelling out the $$ to get their business out on the web, but give 'em grief for skimping on the proofreader.



Enjoy your visit to Sunflower. (Now *I'm* feeling hungry.) Thankfully, there are no fried cottage cheese balls on THAT menu.....

I'm in Vienna, Va., and am darned happy to have Amma and Sunflower just down the street from me



I work in Reston. China Town's a fantastic place - it's in the Reston Town Center. It's a (healthy?) Chinese restaurant that does lots of great things with soy.



Also in Reston is the Tortilla Factory (fresh Tex Mex) - most vegeterian dishes can be made vegan by yanking the cheese (and sour cream, if there's any in the dish).



There's both an Indian and an Afghan (lunch) buffet in Reston (I'd have to look up the names - they're in the K-Mart plaza in Herndon) that feature about 50% vegetarian options, tho I wouldn't want to vouch for their veganness.



In Fairfax, too, there's ooo oo oo what's the name? Um. It's a fantastic all vegetarian Indian restaurant in just off Jermantown, 29, and 50. Oo! Woodlands! Great place. Bloaty.



Amma also has a location in Georgetown, fwiw.



In DC, Pizzeria Paradiso and 2 Amys (Dupont, G-town and... near Cathedral?) make fantastic pizzas - go cheeseless for the vegan in you.



And one of the tastiest bakeries I've ever visited (AND it's VEGAN!) is Sticky Fingers, just South of Adams Morgan (South of Florida) on 18th. OMG, try the cowvin cookies!



In Rockville (? Wherever White Flint Mall is, at any rate), don't miss the Vegetable Garden and its sister restaurant whose name I've completely forgotten.



OMG, I'm all hungry now.

HUH!!! I am in Vienna too, also just down the road from Sunflower and Amas. Freaky!



I heard sticky fingers is great. Gotta make a trip down there soon.

If you're inclined to drive for food, there's a *fantastic* Thai place called T.H.A.I. In Shirlington. It's in, well, Shirlington. Good-sized veggie (all vegan AFAICT) section in the menu, plus a couple of other items scattered around. N.B., the veggie section states that all selections are made with fish sauce. In fact, they've universally removed the fish sauce from their veggie dishes.

I'm just slightly north, in Maryland, just outside the city. But well within the same restaurant range.



Highly endorse cowvin cookies. I'm thinking of going to Sunflower soon... Having a general tso's fix.

I heard about it on the radio.. Some guy to Floyd had his wind chimes fall off his porch. We didn't feel it in Roanoke, but close by there were some reports. How fun!
