Eating Out on Tuesday

May 19, 2011

We go out to eat almost every week, and since my best inspiration comes from diverse cuisines, we go to ethnic restaurants that are not vegetarian, but where vegetarian dishes are traditional, and therefore, available. 

For example: Bereket in Black Rock, Bridgeport, is a Turkish restaurant.  Food there is of Mediterranean inspiration.  My favorites are the feta cheese filled "cigarros", more than decent falafel, and several excellent (though cold) eggplant dishes.

In Stamford, a Greek restaurant called Eos does eggplant dishes at least as well.  There are also lemon-oregano potatoes and flaming saganaki cheese.

In Fairfield there is Fin, a Japanese restaurant (run by Chinese) where they make lovely vegetable dumplings and shitaki sushi. 

And  Pho Saigon, in Bridgeport will make the famous Vietnamese soup vegetarian on request.  It is delicious and very reasonably priced.

More next time!

Let's begin...

In this space  I will go on about my issues…..mostly about food: such as where we choose to eat when not at Bloodroot, or what markets for shopping.

Sometimes there will be conversation about a particular dish or about a book, or what's special in the garden.  We will see what comes out!  I hope you like it.
