VeganMoFo: any common vegan foods you have yet to try?
Have you ever heard of a vegetarian restaurant called The Grit? Well, it's a pretty popular place for vegans and vegetarians in Atlanta and Athens. In fact, if you mention to any ATL vegan that you are making a trip to Athens, the most common response is, "Ohh.. The Grit! Golden Bowl!"
My confession: I don't know what a Golden Bowl is. Because I've never been to The Grit. But tonight, I intend to find out! Because Ken and I are making the hour drive up the highway to Athens for a show tonight, and damnit, we are stopping at The Grit for dinner. I hate being the last to know things!
So here is my question to you VeganMoFoers. What seemingly common vegan food have you not yet tried, and why? Is it eggplant? Quinoa? Nutritional Yeast? And if you name it, then you have to go out and try it. Go!
