Vegetarian fare in San Pedro ?

Vegetarian fare in San Pedro ? - 01/05/04 04:46 AM

Hi Everybody,

I've been monitoring this board for awhile now, and learning all kinds of great stuff, but I haven't seen this topic come up yet.

Can anyone recommend good restaurant options for ovo-lacto vegetarians ? I'm not expecting to find an exclusively vegetarian restaurant in such a small location, so I'd be happy with somewhere that has more than one vegetarian option on the menu. I'm not looking for somewhere that's really fancy and expensive, just a nice place with good food, and preferably one where I might run into some nice people, as I'm heading down there solo.

Thanks in advance.

As a vegan, Taste of Thailand also gets my vote! The food is fabulous with lots of vegetarian selections. Only place on the island I found that makes dishes with tofu. Try the #56 my personnel favorite. laugh laugh laugh mobunny

I am not a big meat eater either and can always find something to eat. You should'nt have any trouble. Try the Jade garden. It is one of my favorites.

I second the Jade Garden suggestion. They have veggie eggrolls the size of a burrito. Yum. mobunny

If I was a hungry lacto ovo, I'd have a bowl of seville seasoned olives or some savory roasted garlic, maybe a gazpacho, then a big bowl of homemade marinara or putanesca sauce over egg-free pasta. yum. for dessert I would have a mango delight from the bar. Please consider Casa Picasso while visiting San Pedro.

Howdy,

Thanks for all the suggestions everybody. I'll definitely be looking into Tastes of Thailand and Casa Picasso, and as many of the others as I can find.

We're having a big old snow storm here today, and a foot of snow is keeping me home from work (hey, there are some benefits to it), so I'm looking forward to San Pedro even more than ever. I'll be there the first week of February for the Jerry Jeff week. Whooo-Hooo!

cheers -- bintipa
