Talking So much food I didn't know what to do!!!!

Wen't to the Hibachi grill with Dad and Best Friend today. I expected only to do a veggie sushi roll, but the hibachi chef had over heard me ordering the veggie roll and asked if I was a vegetarian, I said "Yes sir, I'm vegan actually." He said. "Oh! I can make you a vegan hibachi, grilled veg and fried rice with no eggs or meat." I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I ordered the vegan hibachi. He made my meal first and loaded my plate up with grilled veggies, seasoned cabbage, mountains of fried rice, and on top of that I got an 8 piece veggie roll and a ginger salad. he even gave me a separate dipping tray with ginger sauce instead of their normal fish sauce. This man deserves a medal. I haven't been this full in a restaurant in a long looooong time. I'm telling you, a few years ago that wouldn't have happened. This is such a major improvement in the world of going out to eat as a vegan.

Brilliant! Some places get it so right Though I get confused when I actually have a choice of what to eat, I'm so used to having whatever the single vegan dish is and it takes forever to choose!

That awkward moment when your partner walks into the kitchen to find you huddled in the corner with an open container of nooch and a spoon and your mouth encrusted with little flakes...

That is great!
If there's a place to review this restaurant you should include your experience!

Now I want to go to a hibachi restaurant. I'd forgotten how good that quick cook method is!

ABSOLUTELY! I usually try to pick something that sounds interesting and tasty, but is quite unlike anything I've had before. But then, I'm not a fussy eater (except for that thing about meat/fish/dairy/egg...)

Welcome, TheVeggieCat! (Languages interest me but I'm not nearly as knowledgeable about them as you are. Back in high school I had 2 years of Latin and 3 years of French, but that was a LONG time ago. I've dabbled a bit in Irish more recently.)

Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.

I was literally drooling while reading your post. As a vegan dining out was always a struggle because we don't have those restaurants that have vegan-friendly menus.
