    Vegan gyro?! Oh my gosh, I need to try that. I love gyros, but my tummy doesn’t. I wonder if I could find a recipe online…

    I always love looking at how restaurants serve food. So prettyyyy

    Ah, I’d been wondering what Matt’s food “status” was. 😛 Ahh! Salted cashew mousse and nibs? Definitely up my alley (funny, though, that I thought ‘I’m not too keen on the pear’, and then it was the part that was a bit odd in your opinion too).

    P.S. You look gorgeous 🙂

    I am so jealous of the vegan places in the US. And the fack you can buy vital wheat gluten in the supermarket.

    It all looks great!

    Oh my gosh, I am so jealous of all that food! I really wish there were some great vegan restaurants here!

    McKella—I KNOW, right?! I’m planning on one of my next cookbook purchases being the Chicago Diner cookbook, and if that recipe is in there, you better believe I’ll be making (and posting about) it.

    Jocelyn—Agreed!

    Hannah—Matt was a self-professed full-blown carnivore, but I’ve “complicated” that somewhat. He (jokingly) tells me I’m a bad influence—since we’ve been dating he has, for example, switched to soy mochas, and lowered his overall meat intake, and I’ve even caught him (shh) ordering tofu at restaurants a few times. Is that cute, or what?! 😛
    Hehe, funny we agree on the pear. With the exception, sometimes, of raspberry, I tend to prefer my chocolate and fruit flavors separate.
    P.S. Yer too sweet ::blush::

    Helen—I did eat some great vegan food in West Kensington, London :] But I too am jealous of the restaurants in cities other than my own.
    You know, Hannah and I have discussed doing an international bloggie food swap. Perhaps you and I could exchange some vegan goodies across the pond sometime? I could include vital wheat gluten in yours.

    Aimee—I know how you feel; the Midwest is not exactly a vegan mecca! I have had some good veg food in Denver, though.

    Well, it’s hard to debate someone on the merits of a meat-based diet when they have volumes of knowledge about how it causes long term health issues. Amber has the equivalent of a doctoral degree on this stuff. I will say that I had no idea that vegan food could taste as good as it does sometimes. So I don’t mind her influence TOO much. 😉

    […] when I ate at the Chicago Diner? This was similar, with a cute 50’s-retro feel, colorful décor, and punky, tattooed wait staff. […]
