Dear Vegan at Heart,
Many urbanites who are spoiled with tons of veg & ethnic restaurants experience pretty serious culture shock when they brave the suburban frontier with its strip malls, fast food joings, and chain restaurants.
Most people don’t realize, though, that many chain restaurants and even fast food places (gasp!) have vegan options. I know that some people boycott chains & fast food places completely, while others feel it's important to buy vegan options to show the restaurant that there is a market for vegan food. I'll leave it up to you whether you want to patronize these places, but in any case, it's good to be informed of these options.
1.) Peruse PETA's alphabetical list of "Vegan Fare at Restaurant Chains."
2.) If you have an iPhone, be sure to download the Vegan Xpress app so you can have vegan restaurant chain options with you on the go.
Have fun out and about!
