I was correcting the above.


It says San Fransisco under your avatar..so living in California was my point about getting vegetarian food and I'm sure the ME restaurants serve more vegetarian options out there.. and ok maybe even in Manhattan where they are bigger...but not where I live. They only have grilled meat on the menu with hummus and steamed vegetables...

Maybe you can ask for a larger portion of hummus & leave a good tip. Most good restaurants should be able to do that.
I know the frustration of not having anything compliant on the menu.  I have gone to Mexican restaurants a few times & asked for 2 portions of pinto beans. The meat is grilled which I don't eat & there is cheese stuck in everything. Then the rice is white only. The tortillas look great, but are corn or wheat!

Averno...not an A thing here either, like Drea, spice is nice and heat is neat!

I am sure I love Mexican because I have lived in SoCal my entire life. Mostly from Sonora. It is the first thing I want when I return from traveling!

I loved the food in France, all over the country but mainly the south.( This is where I had better Italian food than in Italy.. )
Love fish.
The best cod is in western Ireland! The best salmon is in Washington and Oregon!

I have to say my Grandmere's cuisine is my favorite! My "comforts."
She made the best soups, breads, roasted game hens in garlic, and fresh veggies with herbs from her garden. Oh, how I miss her natural culinary talent!  

I agree, GCG....if I want real Cajun I have to go to the bayous!!!

Lots of agreement, cajun.
And my grandmother, too, was Good With Garlic.

After trying to eat in 3 different ME restaurants and not liking the food, I've come to realize I just don't like ME food.  If I get the chance I'll try a ME vegetarian cookbook and see if I can enjoy the vegetarian recipes in it. Then I'll see.


This one looks particularly enjoyable (to me) Ottolenghi is a great respecter of vegetarian cuisine, and you can connect to his vegetarian cookbook, Plenty, via this page, too:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/1607743949/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

And check this out:If you like what you see, you might link up on this page to Wolfert's other Middle East/Mediterranean/Morocco books, which are considered "classic" by many:
http://www.amazon.com/Mediterranean-Grains-Greens-Sun-Drenched-Recipes/dp/0060172517/ref=pd_sim_b_5

And this one is attractive, for the way it's organized, presented:
http://www.amazon.com/Middle-E.....oliid=I1US9D6OYA6TF6

Bon app├ętit!
