What a fantastic TR! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences!

I don't know why but the tofu I had at Tusker House & Boma were awful! I felt they were way too overcooked and hated the texture. I had a bad experience at Boma as something I ate upset my stomach but with your TR I wonder if I should give it another chance. And I am HORRIFIED to find out that the samosas at Tusker House are normally fried with meat! The Chef took me around and NEVER mentioned that! Yech!

I had such a nice experience at the Plaza and sorry that you didn't. But it wasn't the best meal I had at WDW so I wouldn't be too upset about never going back.

I have one question, with the soups that your BF ate, did he ask about the stock? I was unaware that any places had veggie soup other than Boma and Jiko (not including the chili from Columbia Harbor House).

The tofu is also cooked in the same oil as the corn dogs. I found this out last week when I was in Disney. Which chef took you around? My boyfriend Michael (plasticletters) and I will be posting our vegan review soon on Tusker House as well as other restaurants (including Chef TJ!).

Yikes! There is such conflicting information!! I don't remember the name of the chef since it was back in February. It makes me want to be VERY cautious next time around.

I really enjoyed your reviews. I am a meat-eater, but I love to eat vegetarian too, so this was great to read.
I don't think there are any Rainforest Cafes in Alabama. We enjoyed our food at the RC in Animal Kingdom on our last trip, so we didn't think it would be as bad as it turned out

Thanks for reading! And I agree on the tofu at Tusker House and Boma. I didn't like either. The tofu at Boma wasn't horrible, but the tofu at Tusker House was just gross.

No, we didn't ask about the stock in the soup he had at Rose and Crown. He never thinks to do that. But I found the recipe online after we got back, and there aren't any meat stocks listed (I actually don't think any stocks were used). Just cream.

What soups at Boma are vegetarian? I thought most contained chicken stock?

There was only one that was vegetarian (sorry - NOT vegan). I can't remember if it was carrot/ginger or butternut squash. It was cream based not chicken stock based.

I'm so impressed with the 'Ohana meal! We always go there for dinner, but barely touch the meat dishes. We really like the sides and the dessert! Our servers always think we're nuts!!! Now I want to ask for a tofu dinner instead! But then, you didn't have room for dessert, and the 'Ohana dessert is one of the few that I love.

Thanks for finishing up the report! Your photos and descriptions are so clear. And I really appreciate your reviews, since it's so hard to find healthy, good choices in the dining reviews!

I found these and your other reports recently and i'm so glad I did My bf is vegetarian so i'm always looking for relevant dining reviews... We have quite a few of the same restaurants booked Chef TJ is awesome, he made my bf a fantastic veggie stir-fry and deep fried Oreos when we ate at Boma in 2007 I booked Ohana since I heard that he moved there so I hope we get him (our ADR is a Sunday) and I hope he's there to whip you up something amazing on your next trip

I really enjoyed the wrap. Tons of veggies, and the black beans add some protein. The veggies I can remember/see are lettuce, tomato, zuchinni, banana peppers, red onion, and corn. There may have been more, I can't remember. But it was really filling and tasty for being such a light meal. A lot of it fell off as we were eating it, so we just got forks and ate the rest as a salad haha.

I'd definitely eat here again!
YUM! I had the veggie flatbread in March & it's my new fave CS option in MK. I like mine a little wetter, so I asked for extra hummus- soooooo tasty! They were also kind enough to give me fruit (either grapes or apples) instead of fries. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed it too!

Thanks for a fantastic review! We're a vegetarian family heading to WDW in January and I am much more knowledgeable about where we should eat now thanks to you! 'Ohana is now a MUST as is Sci Fi Diner (for the kids, but happy to know about the yummy tofu dish).
