            Diana -- There is a really great Vegan restaurant on National called The Vegan Joint.

            I need to write a full review -- I don't have time right now -- but it's a must try for vegans and vegetarians.

            My wife -- who is not a vegetarian -- eats there three times a week.

              I tried this the other day and thought it was only "Okay." I enjoyed it, but wasn't really overwhelmed. It was good.

              The tacos at Sabor, so far, have blown me away. The veggie burrito was good, but not necessarily better than I've had elsewhere. I ended up dousing it with a lot of hot sauce.

              (For what it's worth -- one of my best friends was raised in Mexico and we took him and his wife to SaM. They were blown away by the tacos, the quesadillas (the deep fried kind) and the rest of the food. "Best they've ever had," they say, "and they've been back a few times with their families.)

                When I had it, I asked them to leave out the lettuce and add extra beans. It was wonderous. I used some of the nice salsas from teh bar, and a few were really good and spicy.

                  I liked it.

                  I just wouldn't consider it a "must have."

            2. The eggplant barhta at Makkal Halal
