OK, I'm sure there have been threads on this before, but I did a search and couldn't exactly answer my question...<br><br><br><br>
So, my symphony director is taking a few of us out to lunch because we've been so awesome this year (we set up and take down the set EVERY DAY. it's more work than it sounds).<br><br>
So, we all sat around and decided where to eat.<br><br>
At first, we decided on Nit Noy, a really awesome Thai place where I can get veggie-friendly food, and they have the best tofu this side of I-10!<br><br><br><br>
So, today, I come to school, and everyone else (none of whom are vegetarians) decide, without asking me, that we're going to go to Saltgrass Steak House. (I HATE TEXAS!!!!)<br><br><br><br>
I know that no matter how much I fight or argue, the restaurant will never be changed to a more veggie friendly one...<br><br>
so what exactly can I order at the restaurant? I've looked on their website and EVERYTHING has meat in it. Salads are meaty, even the stupid side salad, which at most restaurants are just lettuce and dressing, has BACON on it.<br><br>
Do I bring in a block of tofu and eat it in the corner, sulking? Do I badger the waiter into making me something meatless? What should I do?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ugh, I really just want to fake stomach flu and stay home, but they'd never buy it... just make fun of me for being meatless.<br><br><br><br>
Have I mentioned that I hate Texas?<br><br><br><br>
Apologies for length, whininess...

Order the Cearser salad, hold the bacon, and a baked potato. Also you could get the Chuck Wagon Cheese Fries, hold the bacon. None of that seems very filling so order a dessert too if you're still hungry, all their desserts seem to be vegetarian.

Thanks for the quick replies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
The potato thing is probably the way to go.<br><br>
I'll sneak in some vegan sour cream, haha.<br><br><br><br>
Arrgghhh.. I shouldn't have to play the part of international tofu-sour-cream smuggler to eat lunch! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:">

This is the only advice i can give you...When youre out with your friends, and they decide to eat at a steak house, ask if you can stop on the way and pick out some food for your self. If this isnt enough, then eat later when you get home. I do this all the time, it seems to work for me. If you dont really like this idea, just order a salad.<br><br>
I hope this helps!<br><br>

Thanks, Rotten. I've actually never thought of that!<br><br><br><br>
I'll probably bring my trusty bag of dried soy nuts if nothing looks appetizing.<br><br>
Mmm... soy nuts...

<span style="color:#000080;"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="font-family:'Arial Narrow';">What about the Artichoke & Spinach Dip<br><br>
Served with tostada chips & salsa. (on the website) ?<br><br><br><br>
or some kind of dessert?<br><br><br><br>
If you do dairy, you could ask for the Quesadillas without the meat. (comes w/rice)<br><br><br><br>
or the kid's Macaroni & Cheese</span></span></span>

Call ahead and ask if they can meet your dietary needs. Explain that you're deathly allergic to dairy products including eggs, and you don't eat meat because it is against your religion. Tell them you were invited out to eat not realizing the location, and now you can't break the plans. They are not allowed to slip meat or dairy into your food if you claim you don't eat it for religious or medical reasons. It is illegal. I'm sure they can come up with SOMETHING you can eat. A side salad minus the bacon wouldn't be terribly hard for them to make, and you could get a side order of french fries or a plain baked potato. None of that sounds very appetizing, but atleast you won't starve?

Btw, what part of Texas are you from?</div>

Houston. The most meat-eating-est, rodeo-tastic, leather-vest-and-chaps part of the state.<br><br><br><br>
(OK, it may not be, but that is what it feels like, haha)
