It sounds okay to me, even though I hate mushrooms. But my husband is a very picky vegan. He doesn't like mushrooms, eggplant or zucchini. I want to visit this restaurant, but I'm not sure it's worth it to have meal we won't really enjoy.

Hopefully they would have the chef come out and offer other options because it would be nice to have a choice!! I am confident, with all the trouble they have gone to for BOG, they will make an effort

Sehsun, can I ask how much the vegetarian plate was?
nansmama, I am very sorry I missed your question. =/

I threw out the receipt, but I want to say it was about $6.19?

My experience this past trip was that if there is a vegan--or easily modifiable vegetarian option--on the menu, they won't offer to make you something special. That's the reason they add these things, after all.

It might not hurt to ask, but at least there's a pretty good vegan option on most menus around WDW. I'm pretty picky as well, but I was mostly happy with what I got when I did order off the menu this past trip.

Some restaurants have a lot of their stuff premade, but assuming BOG doesn't, then you can look at the menu and see if you can see a dish they could put together for you from the ingredients of the dishes on the menu. I see tomato, garlic, onion, basil, green beans, shallots, potato, quinoa, bell pepper, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, and pasta (assuming it doesn't have egg in it). So eliminating mushrooms, eggplant, and zucchini doesn't leave much to work with. I suppose they could do a saute built around green beans, and put it over the quinoa. Do you like green beans?

Has anyone gone to the Polynesian luau and had a vegetarian meal? If so what did they serve?

Thanks

When I went to the luau, I was offered a veggie lasagna, a veggie stir-fry, or couscous with veggies. I believe that both the stir-fry and couscous dish were served with tofu, but I can't quite remember. I was going in September, and knowing that it would be outdoors, likely hot and humid, I didn't want to order the lasagna because I felt it might be too heavy.

I went with the couscous and was incredibly disappointed. It was just so bland and flavorless. The only redeeming part of the meal was the salad, which was actually really awesome, but not worth the $55 or so. I'm hoping that perhaps it was an "off" night?

If you're dead set on going, I guess I would suggest opting for the lasagna? If the veggie options are still the same.

In my experience, yes, they will allow you to substitute potatoes for the meat.

Can anyone tell me if there is a vegetarian kid's offering at San Angel Inn? The kid's menu is all meat. I'm wondering if they might substitute beans in the taco? We're on the dining plan. Last time we ate there we weren't on the dining plan and I remember ordering a cheese quesadilla (maybe from the appetizer menu?) and some kind of bean concoction for them, but nothing was from the kid's menu and I know with the dining plan we have to order from that if one is available. We loved our meal and the atmosphere there last time and would like to eat there again if we can get them a veg option. Thanks!

Don't quote me on this, but I remember asking once and finding out that the beans at San Angel Inn were cooked with pork or with chicken stock, or something that made them into something we wouldn't eat.

If that's the case, I'll need to change my ADR!

We ate at hacienda de San angel a few nights ago and had an incredible vegan meal. Maybe consider going across the path to the newer place? They have a dedicated vegetarian menu and its beautiful inside.

Has anyone tried it? Or did the chef make you something else?
My boyfriend and I had this a few days ago. It was tasty, but the portion was a little small. The highlight of our meal was the salad trio we got as an appetizer!

There was nothing available when I was making ADR's, but I'll keep trying!
