Just wanted to say hi from Anniston. I have not a single vegan or vegetarian friend around here, the only ones I know are online, mostly on Vegan Freak Forums. I introduced myself on these boards quite a while back, but then had trouble getting back on the boards because of having AOL as an ISP. Everything seems fine now. Anyway, if anyone is anywhere near Anniston, Jacksonville (where I attend Jacksonville State University), Marshall County, or even Birmingham (where I go sometimes for VA hospital medical appointments, I'm a veteran), I would be interested in meeting up sometimes. I see that you have a group doing that in Birmingham, I may join you there occasionally.
As far as Anniston having anything vegetarian or vegan, I do get some good things at the Chinese restaurants, such as Mu Shu without the pork, or bean curd dishes with vegetables, but beware some of the places that advertise vegetable platters, they are not always vegetarian. The last place I went to in Jacksonville on the square served me the vegetable platter several times until I thought to ask what it was cooked in. Turns out it was chicken broth
I was so mad. I should have thought to ask. Oh, and the Frontera Mexican restaurant in Anniston near the Big Kmart has some vegetarian options (about 4) on the menu, I discovered that the other night. There is a Friends Natural Market in Oxford, near the mall, they have plenty of vegetarian, vegan, and health and organic items. I also like Books-A-Million to get my coffees, lattes and cappuchinos; they are good to substitute soy milk in place of dairy in items for just a little change, without any questions.
Hope that helps, I know that's a little late for the person who asked about meals in Anniston.
