Downtown Detroit w/Vegetarian choices

Rheta Nov 28, 2009 10:52 AM

We'll be in downtown Detroit tonight with our daughter(home from college until tomorrow) and her friend who are both vegetarian. Her dad and I eat everything. Need a restaurant with plenty of both choices. My first thought was Angelina but looking at the menu, not sure if there are enough choices for daughter's friend. Thanks!

    The Traffic Jam & Snug always has some vegetarian choices. Guarded parking at night is a plus. Another idea--drive to Dearborn and hit one of the big Middle Eastern places. Plenty of veggie foods there.

      How about the new Shangri La on Cass where Twingos used to be ? Was just there for lunch today . We only had dim sum ( which was fabulous ) but didn't have all that many strictly vegetarian other than fried spicy tofu , which was great . They do have an entire separate entree and appetizer menu which had a good looking and fairly sizable vegetarian sections . Service wasn't perfect , ( someone didn't get their bubble tea ) but they were otherwise friendly and knowledgeable , and the food was really great . We had no problem getting a good table at noon on a Saturday , but I have heard from someone who went earlier in the week that they left because the wait was too long . Sometimes a long wait is a good sign .

        Thanks for your replies. I posted my question quite late in the day, before I got any answers. We ended up going to Angelina Bistro which was great. But I will definitely consider your suggestions in the future. Thanks!
