    I used to wait tables here, it’s a great space. And those sweet potato fries look incredible! πŸ˜€

    Wow, that looks like a great place. I’d be curious to sample the fauxfish.

    I love arancini & that faux fish looks great

    Banoffee pie is a Brit thing! At least I’m guessing so: it was somewhat buzz ten years ago in the UK, but in the eleven years I’ve now been in the US, I’ve never come across it here. It’s a good idea!

    I’m glad you made a decision that felt comfortable to you over the MoFo thing.
    Looking forward to the cookbook reviews: your stake in that is way up!

    As another “Almost Vegan,” I enjoyed your MOFO posts… I will miss them!!! : (

    I’m so intrigued by that mock seafood! Have certainly never seen that here, but what else is new? πŸ˜› One day I’ll try banoffee pie…

    I love that pie! I had a piece of that the last time my husband and I were in Lawrence (down from Nebraska). I love Lawrence, so it has been cool to see your pictures. πŸ™‚

    Sorry you had to deal with those negative comments. Too much drama in my opinion. Well we’re all here for you!

    Wow, I had no idea Lawrence was so veg-friendly! I haven’t been there since college (I didn’t go to school there, just visited occasionally), but I wasn’t vegetarian back then so I wouldn’t have noticed. I think Erik and I need to plan a time to go and make a day of it πŸ™‚

    I want to go to the places you go to eat! Everything looks so freakin’ good!

    I’ve never had them, but those arancini look so good! And the curry sauce must’ve been an interesting twist… yummers.

    I’m bummed that you got negative emails, and I’m sorry. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate how graciously you handled the situation. I knew you were awesome but this really confirmed it. =)

    The negative comments you got were stupid and unnecessary, but I think some of the reactionary comments were equally unfortunate. It’s pretty sad that some non-vegans can’t understand why vegans would want to carve out *one* small space, in an enormous omni world, that is safe and comfortable for us.

    Anyways, I have added you to my reader, MoFo or No-fo!

    Yum… everything looks so good.. I’d be eating that curry sauce with a spoon too!

    I really enjoy your blog because it’s “almost”, like me, almost. I’m sorry about the other post on Vegan MoFo – I enjoyed it.

    i did the same thing with vegan mofo (replying to your last post here). i had a very negative/insulting comment, which i received despite already posting that i was withdrawing. it’s such a shame that something that’s meant to bring people together also fosters negativity. all these eats look DELICIOUS! vegan or not πŸ™‚

  16. Jen@foodfamilyfitness

    You find the BEST restaurants!!!! Can I come travel with you for a weekend? πŸ˜‰ I promise not to eat meat πŸ™‚

  17. MIchelle

    Man, that Faux fish sounds/looks awesome! Have you ever been to Destin or Ft. Walton Beach FL? We are headed their Monday for the week. I was just thinkg if you had, that maybe…..just maybe you might have some recomendations of some places to eat. πŸ™‚

    Haha. I just sent you an email in which I was excited that you and I shared the same birthday month (I don’t know anyone who shares my birthday) until I realized these were belated posts and your birthday is in July, not October. Oops. Lol. All well!

    I still haven’t made it to Lawrence yet… though I’d really like to go to a concert there sometime. For some reason, metal bands seem to hit that place up!

    I love vegan seafood too! There’s so much attention to detail with the pink stripes and whatnot. And because they don’t exist in my city, so they seem all mystical. Too bad the restaurant closed, everything looked great!

  20. Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen

    So sad that it closed! Everything looked amazing. [And I, too, would have asked for both sauces. :)]

    I’m finishing up the first week of the Vegan Month of Food, and, as someone who was NOT a vegan before this month, I have to say that dining out seems to be one of the hurdles I am faced with. There are so many things to watch out for at restaurants…I don’t know how “true vegans” do it in towns where there aren’t a lot of veg-friendly options! I will say, however, that at least I know how to cook!

  21. Meri

    Me too! I tried to go there a couple weeks ago, found them closed and thought it was just because they weren’t open Monday/Tuesday. It makes me sad to hear they’re closed for good. πŸ™

  22. hihorosie

    What a darling little place Lawrence is! I want those sweet potato fries and the rice balls look super yum

  23. veganhomemade

    Veggie Shrimp is the funniest thing! Too bad the restaurant closed, that pie looks amazing.
