And so they are.
We found that politely asking what vegan options were available opened an entirely new, unprinted, menu to us. The most memorable meal was a Risotto with mushroom, cauliflower, and beets. It was delicious and not on the meat filled menu. My sister took me to a fun restaurant in Redondo beach called, Happy Veggie, where we dined on spring rolls, "chicken" curry, and a big salad - delicious. One night we ordered delivery of a scrumptious meal consisting of: vegetarian chili, potato corn chowder, kale salad (my favorite: barely steamed kale, quinoa, purple cabbage [diced] green onion, pecans...), and an African country vegetable dish that had wonderful flavor.
My experience is that the vegan options are not only healthier, they seem fresher and taste better too! And it feels indulgent to order something that isn't on the menu. When we ate at The Getty the chef delivered our food rather than the waiter. La tee da.
Here we are at The Getty. Compare this to the picture in the side bar, looks like the carb face is going away.
