My Vegan Adventure #3: Navigating the Food Court
Thankfully that was not the case.When we first arrived I walked around the food court seeing what options were available. So when it was time to eat I had a good idea what I wanted.
I started at A&W. I've heard really good things about their veggie burger. I also like that you can substitute the bun for a lettuce wrap which I quite enjoy. Unfortunately when I got up to order I asked if the veggie burger was vegan. The first girl didn't know what that was, which is fine, I wouldn't have really known a few years ago. The manager handed me a binder with all the ingredients in each thing. The veggie burger contained milk in the seasoning so then it was to option two.
After a bit more reading, option two became a veggie stir fry from Thai Express. I was impressed. It was some of the most enjoyable food court food I've had. It might not have passed with a true vegan, the veggies were cooked in the same wok as the rest of the dishes, and I didn't ask about whey in the sauces. I was happy with my choice, I will make it again. And the smells from the other food options only made me a little sad...no temptation, that's progress.
