Sorry if any of the following pictures have been posted already- I didn't go back and read all 22 pages before this. I apologize in advance that some are half eaten already when the picture was taken , sometimes the food is just too good to remember to take a picture before diving in!

This is the vegetarian option at Whispering Canyon Cafe. The chicken vegetable penne pasta, without the chicken.

Here is one of the selections from the vegetarian menu at La Hacienda. It was the empanados de queso. Pretty tasty.

Here is the Four Cheese Faltbread at Mama Melrose. Well.. half of it. Didn't wow me, but it was good nonetheless.

Here is my favorite counter service meal at WDW, the lighthouse sandwich at Columbia Harbour House. I dream about this sandwich.

Here is what the chef made especially for me at 'Ohana. Completely different from what they made me last times, both were excellent.



I could easily just fill up on this, though, at 'Ohana. Love their lo mein noodles. Considering this meal is so much centered on their meat skewers, I find this to be one of my favorite restaurants and will keep returning.

Ohhhhh that looks so much better than I expected.... I think I might dream about it without even having it yet!

And now you have me wanting to change my breakfast to dinner there. Oh now wait, I didn't make any ADRs there, went with Chef Mickey instead. Hmm.

Thanks to both of you!

It's going the opposite way I had wanted, LOL... While on the 3 Caballeros ride I got major "I want to be sitting there" envy, similar to when you're at Disneyland on POTC and you float past the Blue Bayou (which is weird, since I couldn't *see* in Blue Bayou and the food wasn't that great). DH hasn't been on that ride and doesn't know where the restaurant is, and wants to keep it at CR!

So there are two marks on DH's side so far.

We love love LOVE 'Ohana. And while the food at Chef Mickey's was completely mediocre and buffets are not our favorite, it was one of my favorite meals because DD was in complete awe of meeting her favorite characters during dinner.

Here is the masterpiece that they made for me on our last trip to 'Ohana.

Maybe we can start it off with that amazing looking dish a few posts back, from California Grill...
I tried this once and it got merged into the regular photo thread. It's sort of frustrating because it's too hard to go through a million pictures to find the vegan/veggie options.

I love this sandwich. I get it without the slaw for a vegan version - so yummy!! I sure wish they had an oil based slaw for us vegans, lol!

Thank you! I had been looking for a pic of this dish! It looks super yummy!

Hello fellow vegetarians and hello vegans!

Just a quick question for all of you that have been to Sanaa.. I see that they offer rice pilaf.. Just wondering if anyone knows if the pilaf is vegetarian or if it is prepared with some sort of meat based stock.

Thank you!

What would 6 of your favorite Vegan friendly restaurants and why? My DH and I are going in Dec and I am somewhat new to the whole Vegan thing but I know there are so many things to be mindful of and honestly I am a bit overwhelmed planing our trip!!! I know WDW is amazing with food allergies because I have a DS with a wheat, egg, and dairy allergy. WDW was amazing with our options for him a year ago. I am just wondering do they treat Vegans with the same respect or should I tell a white lie and say I have allergies? My DH and I are going on our ten year anniversary trip by ourselves and I really do not want to be miserable about not having any choices. Thanks a ton!!!

You don't need to lie - Disney is great with vegans, at least at the sit-down restaurants.

I would say my favourites are:

1. Sanaa. They have a separate vegan menu. The food is Indian-African but very mildly spiced, we always ask for extra-spicy and that's what we get! Also, you get to enjoy looking at the animals while you eat - what could be better?

2. Jiko. They also have a vegan menu, but will make you dishes not on the menu if it's not too busy and you ask. I've had some great meals that way!

3. Boma. Buffet, but usually a good selection of vegan options. It was even better when TJ was still there.

4. Tusker House. It's like "Boma Lite," there is usually a section of vegetarian options and they will readily let you know what is vegan and what is not.

5. Kouzzina. While there isn't much vegan on the menu, we've had a couple of outstanding meals here, just by telling the chef to make us something good!

6. The restaurant in Mexico. (forgotten the name for the moment). They have a vegan menu and can make other dishes vegan if you ask. We also ask for extra spice here.

7. The Tangierine Cafe in Morocco. I like this better for vegan options than the Marrakesh restaurant, although it does lack the belly dancer.

But I've had some really good meals in other places, too, including Narcoosee's, California Grill, O'hana (when TJ was there, though, so it probably isn't as wonderful now), Le Cellier, The Wave, etc. Get the right chef and you'll have an amazing meal!
