Do Vegetarians and Vegans Think They Are Better Than Everyone Else?

    BTW, the idea that vegetarian or vegan food can't be delicious and satisfying, even to a meat eater is just plain silly. If it's good, and fills you, who cares if it has meat or fish?

    One of the best restaurants in Chicago is currently doing an entirely vegan menu, and it received a four star revue in the Trib:


    And, a second restaurant, which has been called the best new restaurant in the country, is doing a $185 vegetarian tasting menu, which has gotten incredible reviews:


    Reservations are hard to come by at either place.

    I'm looking forward to the chain of vegan fast food places since its so popular.

    I eat meat, but I'd be cool with a tofu main dish for Sunday dinner. What point are you trying to make?

    Tofu is so 2003. Quinoa is the new super food.

    Who said anything about popular?

    We're talking about attending a party or wedding -- one fucking night out of your life.

    A cheese pizza is vegetarian, and can be delicious. And, most people wouldn't bitch about the lack of meat.

    Now, if you don't like tofu, that's fine. But, vegetarian, or veagan, doesn't have to mean tofu either. Lot's of vegetables and grains an be the star of a dish.

    I went to a vegetarian restaurant, and had a cauliflower tasting menu. It was fabulous, and I didn't miss the meat, because the meal was delicious.

    Check out these menus:



    This is great food. It just happens to be meatless.

    Good Chinese restaurants have some great fusion dishes prepared with Tofu.

    Meat will leave you with a "fatburg" in your stomach.

    Pork, tofu, chili sauce. Delicious.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but vegetarian doesn't necessarily equate to "tofu."

    I am a vegetarian and I don't eat tofu. Not because it tastes good or bad. But because we don't eat processed foods like tofu, and in general we don't eat packaged foods.

    We prefer to buy whole foods and cook.

    Since you brought up quinoa, Boom. ... I have no idea what a superfood is, but lunch today (actually it has been lunch every day this week) is a tabbouleh salad we made with quinoa (and persian cucumbers, halved cherry tomatoes, parsley, a shitload of mint, scallions, lemon juice, olive oil and salt).
