So, tonight I have to go to the Keg Steakhouse. I had no choice in the type of restaurant, so I'm stuck. Has anyone been here and know what is a safe option for vegans?

I just looked at their menu online and it looks like the only thing that is vegan is the house salad. But you should make sure they don't put cheese on it, and also check on the ingredients of the dressing.<br><br><br><br>
This is one of the most vegan unfriendly places ever.

Call them and ask. You don't know 'til you find out. They might even make you something if you ask nicely.<br><br><br><br>
If you do call them, please let us know of the results.

They have steamed asparagus, assuming you don't mind stinky pee, just ask them to drizzle some olive oil on it. I'm sure that they probably could char grill you some veggies if you ask them nicely, assuming you don't mind them using a shared grill. They've also got Trio Sampler -- Steamed asparagus, mushrooms, and Szechwan green beans. That might be veganizable.<br><br>

Do they have fajitas? Sometimes you can get the to just do veggies with some whole beans and plain rice. that one saves me a lot.<br><br><br><br>
Sorry though...I had to go to Applebee's once and that was just plain stupid. I mean it's got a fruit in the name yet nothing on the menu.

The trick with being dragged to these kind of places with work colleagues or family is to simply eat well before hand. Once you get there just order a green salad and pick at it saying you're on a diet or whatever. Enjoy the company and then have a snack when you get home.

Thats what I do also, I eat before going out to eat. Or order two salads and ask what sort of vegetables they have that they can add to it. I know at this breakfast place, all they seemed to have is pancakes and bacon. So I asked nicely, "Do you have any fresh fruit or vegetables in that back?" So that day for breakfast I had apples, oranges, banana's, and grapes with soymilk and oatmeal. Ta da!

They did at the one near me when I got dragged there a few years back, and I gotta be honest. They were some of the best fajitas I have ever had.

Why is everyone always being drug, forced, bound and tied to go to places that aren't "vegan".<br><br>
Isn't it all about exceptence of what is different? Expressing your point, planting your seeds, and educating the less aware, and not showing what a twitt you are for not having a good time in the company of others, because of there chosen lifestyle?<br><br>
Now if you took someone to a Vegan" restaurant would you like them to feel as if they were forced or dragged through the doors.

What does expressing a reluctance to go to a restaurant which in all likelihood will have sucky options for vegetarians have to do with acceptance of what is different?<br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Nobody is saying they won't have a good time while they're at the Keg. Just that, well, it's a <i>steakhouse</i>, and hardly a vegetarian's first choice of restaurants. You can hardly expect a vegetarian to do cartwheels at the thought.

Obviously not, but the omnivore's "choice" involves torture and death so there's a lot more reason for an ethically-motivated vegan to feel a bit trepidatious (and forced/dragged) about going into a steakhouse.

Oh and I thought of something else, usually omnivores can find wonderful and delicious food at veg restaurants, whereas we end up eating crap and iceberg lettuce at omnivorous establishments. In other words, they have nothing to complain about, and we tend to starve. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I think that it is all about appeasing to different tastes and needs. Restaurants, whether a steak house or a purely vegetarian restaurant, should ALWAYS have options for different tastes, In my opinion. There is no reason why a Steak House can't always have a really good vegetarian dish, vegan dish, and even raw dish available. I mean, in this day and age more and more people are looking for healthy alternatives at restaurants, and that usually goes hand and hand with vegetarian meals. And on that note, there is no reason why a vegetarian restaurant can't have dishes that would appeal to the traditional folk...there are a lot of veg restaurants where I live and they have stuff that doesn't scare meat eaters away such as plain ol' burritos, stir frys, french fries, pastas, and so on. What I've found is that the most successful restaurants around here can appeal to EVERYONE. You may not think it is possible, but it really is!<br><br><br><br>
I know that this wasn't what this thread started out as, but I just had to chime in.

Just smelling the charring meat would make me sick to my stomach. Sorry you have to go through that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Hey VeeJay my man, omnis can eat vegan meals whereas vegans can't eat meals with animal products. An omni in a vegan restaurant has quite a lot more options than a vegan in a steakhouse, and so they are not comparable.

This is not necessarily true. I have omni friends who refuse to eat some vegan dishes. They are more comparable then you care to believe.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone "can" eat anything, the question is "will" they.<br><br><br><br>
For someone so smart as you, who is always correcting my English and spelling, I would have thought that you could have at least chosen the correct <i>auxiliary verb</i>.
