Vegetarian B'more B-Day Dinner this Friday

I am celebrating my birthday this Friday and I am looking for a recommendation of a good place to eat after I see the BSO at the Meyerhoff. I don't need something super close as I don't mind driving. The only requirement is that there are some decent non-meat dishes on the menu and that its not too expensive as I am on a budget. Other than that I am game for anything. Thanks for the help.

  1. rocket to venus

    holy frijoles (it gets knocked, but I loved their taco salad...very veggie)

    Golden West Cafe

    all cheap, "fun" and veggie friendly.

    1. I know this is late, but I highly suggest The Helmand on Charles St.

        Second The Helmand!!!! The vegetarian Aushak is fantastic and its near the Meyerhoff. Feels birthday-ish without being too expensive.

      2. My Thai on Charles Street--great variety, cool atmosphere and very reasonable.

        1. You could also go to B Bistro or if you want a more casual vegetarian friendly experience Zodiac definitely fits that bill as does One World Cafe by Hopkins. I second Rocket to Venus as well as Helmand. It all depends on atmosphere/cuisine but all are reasonably priced. Have also had great vegetarian dishes at the Bicycle in Fed Hill and Jack's Bistro in Canton.

          1. Lots of good suggestions so far.

            The Helmand for sure (but it's a bit pricey).
            Rocket to Venus is fun/funky but the service leaves a lot to be desired.
            My Thai is also good.

            Avoid Golden West (wretched service which is not ok, and especially not on your birthday!).

            Bicycle is good but definitely expensive and not for someone who is on a budget.
