Re: [boulderandbeyondvegans] Vegan options at DIA!

Wow, I didn't know Panda Express would do plain steamed vegetables. I have avoided them in the past because all of their sauces, including the white sauce they usually put on the veggies, are made with chicken broth. (Some of their employees either don't know this or won't give you a straight answer if you ask). Nice to know they'll leave the sauce off.

Vegan options at DIA ... this is mine:

Panda Express, at the DIA Terminal AND in Concourse A.  I look forward to this every time -- their steamed vegetables with steamed _brown_ rice.  A satisfying very-healthy choice .  It's not on the menu -- just ask for a large or double-serving of steamed vegetables (and the steamed rice, white or brown if they have it -- lately they have).

I've always been charged way less than the standard fare -- the staff loves the irreverence of asking for the only truly healthy and ethical choice, not even on the menu.  (Tipping largely makes them accomplices).

You can WALK from the DIA Terminal to Concourse A through the bridge-tunnel (an alternative security point).  Nice little walk before or after a long flight.  I slightly prefer the Concourse A Panda Express ... you can go there even if your flight is through the Concourses B or C -- it's on the way -- the train stops there.

Excellent blog post! I'd add that Pour La France in B terminal has a lemon hummus plate with grilled pita triangles, kalamata olives, pickles, carrots, and cucumber slices. Also, I JUST saw that Root Down has plans to open in C terminal. I don't know what their menu will have, but their Denver restaurant has great vegan food.

I found some new places in this blog post. And Udi's always has some great vegan options. Even if not on menu, they will make something special.
