Hi friends! I’m back in New York and am stunned by the heat and humidity in comparison to Colorado Springs. My curly hair is back!
Saturday I shared my first few vegan dining experiences in Colorado Springs. Sunday, in my weekly news/links round-up, I shared some stunning pics from my run though the Garden of the Gods. Today, I’ll share a few of my other meals.
A friend on my blog Facebook page suggested we try Wild Ginger Thai for lunch.
It was Territory Days so Colorado Avenue in Old Colorado City was hopping when we went to Jake and Telly’s Green Taverna or dinner with two other couples later that evening. While Greek restaurants can be vegan-friendly, I didn’t find this one to be terribly so. But I did spy several sides that, combined, would make a lovely meal.
The next day I deemed it “vegan” day – meaning we were going to restaurants that specifically catered to a plant-based diner. Based on a comment on Saturday’s blog post, we tried Rasta Pasta. I loved the casual vibe of this place! We started off with drinks and chips with a spicy salsa.
We devoured this!
I ordered the Spicy Jammin’, a rotini dish made with shrimp but with the note “can be made vegan” meaning I could choose to substitute tofu or veggies. I chose tofu.
Summer Olympics spirit was in the air!
For our last meal, dinner on Sunday night, we went to Poor Richard’s. I loved this place! You order at the counter, they bring you the food, you bus your own table. And they have a vegan menu!
I went with the Salad and a Slice option.
We had a marvelous time in Colorado Springs!
