the spiral diner
the spiral diner is heaven for vegans. it's a cute little diner with lots of yummy food and everything on the menu is completely animal free. the original location is in fort worth, and they recently opened a second location in dallas. alan took me to the new one last night on one of our surprise dates!
now, i have been vegetarian for almost a year, and vegan for not quite as long. which is great. i love it. but one of the things that you give up when you give up meat is the ability to walk into a restaurant and just order any old thing off the menu. you have to ask a lot of questions, do a lot of research, think really hard - just to eat a meal. you have no idea what an amazing treat it is to go to a place like the spiral diner and be presented with this extensive menu of delicious food and know that you can, in fact, eat all of it. anything. guilt free. i was practically giddy last night at dinner. and the best part? my carnivorous husband loved it too.
