Anyone know a way to get to Watertown through Waltham? Or, *any* way to get to Watertown from the west (I usually take the pike, but I'm willing to experiment) that doesn't involve going around that insane rotary?

I lived in Boston last year. There's four great vegan restaurants that I know of. And I hear there's a vegetarian pizza parlor in Cambridge (though I never went there.)<br><br><br><br>
There's also a raw food restaurant in Beverly (Beverly?). Never been to that one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I live in Malden, MA. I've lived here about a year.<br><br><br><br>
I'm originally from Utah, so this spring has been very distressing for me. I can't believe how much it rains here and how few warm days we've had this spring. I'm hoping this summer won't be so wet and chilly.<br><br><br><br>
So far the only veg restaurant I've been to is Buddha's Delight in Boston (in Chinatown). I've been meaning to check other places out, but so far haven't been able to convince my husband to go there (he's omni). Anybody know of some good veg restaurants or veg friendly places that are good to take an omni to?

The summers in Boston are amazing. I'm affraid you just moved in the wrong year. I'd rather that weather to the humidity of New Orleans anyday, though.<br><br><br><br>
If he didn't like Buddha's Delight, then I can't really imagine him liking any other vegan restaurant. The Seventh Day Adventists run a restaurant chain called Country Life, and they have more American style vegetarian meals (entirely vegan). They have things like tofu scramble, waffles, homefries, caseroles, etc.<br><br><br><br>
I met spud at the Country Life in London and it was fantastic. Funny thing is that I never went to the one in Boston! I know it has funny hours, so I'd look at them online before you go. It's all you can eat buffet.<br><br><br><br>
I just found the hours -<br><br><br><br>
200 High Street, Boston, MA 02110<br><br><br><br>
main: 617-951-2534<br><br><br><br>
menu: 617-951-2462<br><br><br><br>
Lunch: 11:30am-3:00pm Mon-Fri<br><br><br><br>
Dinner: 5:00pm-8:00pm Sun, Tues, Wed, Thurs<br><br><br><br>
Sunday Brunch: 10:00am-3:00pm

Buddahs Delight is nowhere NEAR as delicious as The Grasshopper, its totally vegan, asian style. Ask for the "No Name", its not on the menu, its a dish the regulars know about and its the most delicious thing Ive ever eaten. even my skeptical omni family loved it.<br><br><br><br>
I'm actually posting today to see if any of you know a good place to have a nice vegan wedding in Boston. i'm trying SO hard to do this, its driving me crazy trying to find something vegan yet affordable. :p any advice you might have is more than welcome!!!!!!

I get no name every time I go there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Oh man, I just can't get enough of that stuff.<br><br><br><br>
There have been several people here who've had vegan weddings. Perhaps you could make the meal yourself, or have a potluck... I don't know, ... Maybe PM Kreeli - She always has awesome ideas.

I think it's tofu... but it's so fried you don't really know what it is. Let me put it this way - It <i>was</i> tofu, until it was fried to death. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
It's so crispy. It's like I remember friend chicken - BUT TOFU! It's the best of both worlds. It's got sauce, and I don't remember the taste exactly, all over it. And they sprinkle sesame seeds all over it as well. And it's just a huge dish of this fried, probably terrible for you, goodness.<br><br><br><br>
I'm starving right now, and talking about it is making me think that's its probably my favorite food ever. lol.<br><br><br><br>
mmmMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm

Probably because Stvspl lives way out by Worcesta, and his dad doesn't take him to work too often. Damn teenagers never want to go hang out at their parents workplace for nine or ten hours a day anymore.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hey. I've been out to his workplace 2 times so far, for about 8 hours the first time and 5 the second, and I've lived here for about 8 or 9 months. That's not bad! It's really not as bad as it would seem, I just hop on the commuter rail in Westborough and Poof! In an hour, I'm there.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
=edit=<br><br><br><br>

You <b>HAVE GOT TO</b> try the Masala Dosa at the Indian restaurant there! I ate it so many times last year, that I think the nice Indian workers started to recognize me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
(I want to say it's called Bombay Cuisine... I could be making that up. It's just a few shops from the middle going towards the water)<br><br><br><br>
I could survive on that for months... and be very happy the whole time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I've had the Masala Dosa at the Indian restaurant near me. YUM. Is it in Quincy Market, with all those little fast food places? or is it a sit-down place somewhere?

So does anyone ever go to the Boston Veg Society meetings? I get emails from them about seminars and meetups, but I haven't gone to any yet. Is it a good time?
