Are you vegan, vegetarian or just curious?


What is your favorite local vegan-friendly restaurant?

I don't know of many in my neighborhood (Monroeville). There are a few Japanese, Chinese, and Indian restaurants that serve vegan dishes, but most of their menu items are meat-based. I am looking for more restaurants in the Pittsburgh area.

Are you the only vegan or vegetarian in your family?


Anything else you would like to share about yourself?

Yes...lots... but would love to share in person. :) As far as food goes.... I love Middle Eastern and Mexican. (Mexican is tough because of lard and hidden meat ingredients. Anyone know of any vegan Mexican places?)

What are you hoping to get out of this meetup?

Friendship with animal lovers who won't look at me like I'm crazy when I ask for all sorts of menu substitutions until I'm satisfied there are no animal products in the meal. (That, and good friends in general.)


I have been a vegetarian since childhood, and a vegan for approx. 20 years. I am an animal lover, animal rights advocate, musician, movie buff... I have lived in PA for a little over six years and would love to meet more like-minded people.
