My friend Shaun was visiting for the week, from the dry, dusty wilderness (not really) of Albuquerque.
He loves all the awesome vegetarian places in Seattle (who wouldn't) but Teapot is one of our favorites! It's fun to actually have another real-life, honest-to-goodness vegan to share favorite places with sometimes, you know?
No worries about whether they'll "find anything they like" and no turning noses up at those "funny" (?) ingredients like tofu and seitan...
OK, so Teapot is one of Seattle's best known vegetarian restaurants, all vegan actually. They call themselves "Pan-Asian" which is basically a little bit of everything Asian/Thai-ish. Insanely deeee-lish!
Naturally we dragged a couple friends along for the experience, (yeah, they were complaining) and made sure we ordered our favorite dishes including the Rose 'Chicken' Drumettes, Pad Thai and Almond Fried Tofu with Gravy. We also ordered several interesting teas. Even the non-veg people were impressed!
