We’re still back at Memorial Day weekend with this post. Like I said, I’m behind! But I’m finally home for two straight weeks…whew. Please bear with me as I get caught up on a month’s worth of emails and blogging!
On our way south (before our meal at Matthew Kenney OKC), we stopped in Wichita, Kansas for a meal. We’d visited their one vegetarian restaurant, Zen, twice before, and really enjoyed it, so we were sad to discover that Zen is no more. I mean, it’s still there, and it’s still a Chinese restaurant, and they even have the same staff, but the name and menu have changed. (I can’t for the life of me recall the new name!) Luckily, though, they still kept many of their vegan items on the menu.
I got some hot tea to drink and sesame “chicken” with broccoli to eat.
Matt had “multigrain fried rice” with tofu and veggies.
We shared some red bean ice cream for dessert.
A day later, when we made it down to Dallas, we wanted a quick dinner, which we found at ZPizza in Flower Mound, Texas.
I’d seen a ZPizza before in L.A., but hadn’t eaten at one. Matt and I split a pie with Daiya vegan cheese; his half had soy crumbles, mushrooms, and onions, while my half had green peppers, artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives.
I hardly ever eat pizza, it seems, so it was a treat! (Although you’ll see another pizza on here in just a few days…)
Here’s a photo to melt any vegan woman’s heart: Matt, drinking a smoothie of almond milk, apple juice, and mixed berries, while paging through the book Eating Animals. I love my vegboy!
For his meal, Matt ate a Lumberjack Slam again: biscuits and gravy, vegan sausage, and tofu scramble.
I also repeated a previous order of mine: the Nachos Supremos, hold the TVP taco bits, add marinated Mexican seitan. Everything in this meal is to-die-for, from the dreamy cashew cheese to the black bean-quinoa topping to the spicy, chewy seitan. HEAVEN!
I left with enough leftovers to have for dinner later that day, but we still shared this excellent brownie for dessert.
That night, while I ate my cold leftover nachos (YUM!), Matt picked up a pasta primavera dinner for himself from Café Brazil. He specified “vegan,” but even though they took care not to put parmesan cheese on his spaghetti, they still put it on the garlic bread. ::sigh:: Fail.
On the drive back home on Memorial Day, we ate at the Moe’s Southwest Grill, a Chipotle-type fast-casual chain restaurant, in Oklahoma City. Matt got a vegan burrito, and I had this tofu rice bowl.
Oh, and we picked up a couple smoothies at Matthew Kenney OKC before leaving town. My two favorites: the Blueberry Bee and the Raspberry Rhapsody.
Next up: MORE meals at MK-OKC and in Dallas!
