Thanks! I'll let you know if I find them anywhere.

My husband is a computer contracter, so we moved around a lot. We lived in a lot of places (Ft. Lauderdale, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Dayton, Austin) but the place we lived in the most (and which feels like a second home now) is Seattle.

That's where I went vegetarian, and it was so easy; Seattle is tremendously veggie-friendly.

Wow, you ceratinly got around.

I just remembered that the sausages at Big Fresh are the Tofurky brand, I think they have two or three varieties.

Found Big Fresh. What an awesome store!

I bought the Tofurky 'Kielbassa' sausages. I don't know what kind of kielbassa the Tofurky people eat, but the stuff I always had tastes nothing like these vegan sausages. They're tasty, they just don't taste like kielbassa. Not even a little bit.

Still, very yummy. I had some tonight with my Chinese takeout (schezuan mixed vegetables). Continuing the hunt for Boca...

Medesha I haven't seen boca sausages anywhere! Just the tofurky and yves brand sausages. They are everywhere and easy enough to find. Boca burgers I used to be able to find @ save-on. Now some of them have them and some of them don't. Their burgers were great!! I'm glad you found big fresh at least. What side of the city do you live on? Have you ever been to Organic Roots? They have a cafe that has some pretty awesome yummy, veg friendly things. It's just off 82nd ave and 112st.

I'm in Oliver Square; I plan on checking out Roots soon.

Thanks for the help! On a related note, what do you guys know about recycling facilities in Edmonton? It's been so long since I've been home, and our building doesn't have recyclables containers.

Ugh it's so annoying how most apartment buildings don't have recycle bins! When you live in a house you just throw all your recyclables into blue bags and put it out with your trash and it gets picked up on garbage day. So recycling is super easy for me. I know there is a recycling center right in the parking lot of my local safeway. Maybe in the front of the white pages there is more info on recycling depots around the city?

Since you are so close to China Town have you ever been to Padmanadi?? It's a great almost totally vegan (one of their mock chicken has whey in it, they will let you know if you order a dish when they use that kind of chicken though, at least they have for me!) indonesian/chinese food restaurant. They often have buffets around special occassions. Their most recent one was for Chinese New Years and it was super tasty! Their address is 10626 97 Street. I'll post in here when they have the next buffet.

Went to Planet Organics near Whyte Ave yesterday. ZOMG that is an awesome store. No Boca, but I did get vegan cheese and sour cream. *love*

You should also try Roots Organic Market (?) it's on the corner of 112 st and Whyte ave, in College Plaza.

For more veg*an dining, you can try the Oriental Veggie House, 10586 100 St. They make wicked awesome food too. Give the crispy 'chicken' a shot.

Near 118 street and Jasper ave (west of Champion foods, across 118 street) is a great Lebanese place called 'Lashish'. I have been going there late at night (3 am) for falaffel and the veggie plate.

That sounds like a spectacular idea. I have a regular poker night Fridays, but I'm free any other night. (Also, does anyone like poker?)

My brother and myself checked out the oriental veggie house yesterday...

We were both very impressed... I also had the crispy chicken on the recommendation of the board... It was delicious... My brother had the roasted duck and chicken and it was also very good..

The only thing that wasn't good was my skills with the chop sticks..

I'm pretty stoked cause it's like half a block from where I live...

I was also surprised that we were the only ones in there at 7pm on a saturday night

go check 'er out!!!
