Growing up a vegetarian in Small Town, Texas ain’t no easy thang.  With the lack of vegetarian restaurants (or any restaurants, really), you would think that I had developed a cookbook of varied, fascinating, meatless-wonders, but I’m a busy girl.  And in a world of busy people, where convenience seems to reign over health, I found myself eating quite poorly.  Burgers without the meat, please.  Chips. Sweets. Sweets. Pizza. Sweets.  Healthy?…not so much. Readily available? You betcha. 

Then my college years came around and I decided to spend them in Seattle.  Finally! Food!  REAL Food! A vegetarian’s haven.  And then, veganism set in.  Since I was a wee girl of 10, I have been slowly cutting animal products from my diet.  Being a vegetarian seemed like a hassle at times (especially when all your friends eat meat and you can’t decide on a place to go), so I figured a vegan lifestyle would cut a lot of restaurant dining out of the picture. 

But, I’m telling ya, if you’re going to be vegetarian or vegan, Los Angeles is the place to do it.  Seattle kept me well fed for five years and for that, it will always hold a special place in my heart, but I needed to venture outside vegan Thai food.  Don’t get me wrong, I love (love love) Thai food, but it’s so nice to have other options. 

And Mani’s has options.  I can come here with vegetarians and/or meat lovers and rest assured that we will each find something delicious on the menu.  I don’t just mean appetizers, I mean full-on meals.  Vegan/Vegetarian/MeatLover feasts galore!  And don’t forget to save room for dessert.  Before this becomes a blog on my life story, I’ll cut it short and give you the meat (ha) of my post.  Here’s a list of my vegan favorites at Mani’s:

* Tofu Steak.  Tofu ANYTHING.  We marinate it and season it just right so it never tastes like flavorless blocks.  Substitute the tofu steak in your sandwiches, salads, wraps, and burgers.  And don’t forget that you can build-your-own-scramble using our tofu in place of eggs, too!

* Vegan Ranch.  ADDICTIVE. I eat it with my fries, potatoes, bread, on anything.

* Veggie Chili. I think of this as a super-chunky, spicy soup.  My favorite part is the fresh mushrooms and big chunks of carrot.  Give me some slices of our fresh baked olive bread, and I’m good to go.

* Almond Shortbread Cookie.  I had worked at Mani’s for over a month before I actually tried this tiny square wonder.  It’s soft and just sweet enough. Try it dipped in chocolate as well (you can thank me later).

* And I can’t go without mentioning our regular ol’ Chocolate Chip Cookie.  The people behind the scenes recently changed up the way they mix the batter and created a cookie with the same delicious taste, but now with a softer texture.  Have us heat it up for you and it will taste like it just came out of the oven.  Actually, everything’s so fresh here, it probably did just come out of the oven.

There’s a lot more I could add but this has turned out to be a lot longer than expected.  The point is, come on in.  You’re bound to find something to satisfy your taste buds.
