Are there any restaurants that cater to vegetarians or restaurants that have a vegetarian option on their menu? I have a guests coming and one does not eat fish or meat. I've been down a few times and noticed salads aren't all that common.

Most, if not all, of the Lebanese restaurants will be able to do a vegetarian plate for your guests. My favourite is Ali Baba's, which consists of felafel, hummus and tabbouleh with homemade flatbread...yummy!

In addition, almost every Chinese place I've visited has been more than willing to make me a (most times huge!) veggie stir fry even if it wasn't listed on the menu board.

One thing to be careful about is that many restaurants use lard for frying. If your guests are really serious about not eating any dead animal products, they'll want to ask.


Newfoundlanders are the only people in heaven who want to go home.

The selections at Portofino are really great and it is probably the largest selection of vegetarian items on any menu on the island.
Wild Mangos has this amazing sort of mayan lasagne (I forgot the name of the dish, but it starts with a B and is fantastic).
Blue Water grill has vegetarian pasta, pizza and also a lovely channa masala, and has some excellent vegetarian items on it's sushi-roll menu.
Mata Chica makes a sensational vegetarian pasta and has a cashew vege stir-fry.
The black bean soups in several restaurants are vegetarian.
You can probably ask Jeff to customize a dish for you at Rojo - also I have had bean-only burritos for lunch there that were wonderful.
Most places that serve starters have a good selection of things for the vegetarian diet.

at Mathieu's Delicatessen on Middle Street we make fresh pasta and we're always accommodating for vegetarians, we also make a mean veggie pizza, hummus sandwich and blue cheese sandwich. We don't use lard/animal fat for any of our veggie options. Chef Gunter will always be able to use the fresh vegetables to do you a custom lunch or take out dinner!
