Vegan Dad on the Road: Washington D.C.

Got in around supper time to D.C. and was imediatley whisked away to a reception for fellow historians of the Early American Republic. I was starving, but they had free beer (woo hoo!) and a veggie platter. It could be worse. A friend and I stopped by an Indian place on Connecticut Avenue near our hotel (Taste of India) on the way back and I had the Thali Vegetarian Platter. It was pretty good (though probably not completely vegan), but the naan bread was a real disapointment. Tomorrow I aim to hit some of the places Vegan Dad readers have recommended. And, I will bring my camera.

i'm sure you've been told this a hundred times over, but please pay a visit to sticky fingers in columbia heights. soul vegetarian cafe on georgia avenue by howard university is also really fun -- great mac and "cheese" and other traditional soul foods. i'm also a big fan of teaism (8th street close to the national archives and navy memorial). . . try the ume plum ochazuke, it's pretty amazing. have fun!
