    this weekend i wound up in my hometown, santa clarita, visiting my omnivore parents and treating them to dinner. scv is great but when eating there, it’s definitely a lot harder to find a safe restaurant than in los angeles…so out of desperation, we chose to dine at the (somewhat) vegan-friendly macaroni grill.

    before heading to the restaurant, i did my research and found that peta and various vegan blogs had confirmed the veganocity of certain mac-grill menu items.

    i decided to give them a try and i gotta say, pretty good. pretty, pretty, pretty, PRETTY GOOD!

    spaghetti with garlic and olive oil, broccoli, mushrooms and diced tomatoes

    the wonderful bread was vegan as well, and dipped in olive oil it made the perfect appetizer.

    peasant bread to start with

    we also enjoyed glass after glass of the house chianti, which was left on our table to refill as we wished using the “honor system”. oh, macaroni grill, don’t TEMPT me!

    as a vegan, i was happy as could be in this huge chain restaurant surrounded by meat-eaters…not something i can say very often. everyone had a great time, and our whole table ordered vegan as well!
