Hello! So, it’s April, and my April Resolution is to actually keep up with this baby-blog even though I’m not cooking or doing anything super fantastic or interesting.
It’s currently Sister’s spring break, and she and Mom flew out to sunny southern CA to visit me and get tan. I love having them here too much for words.
They got here Sunday evening, and we decided to go out for dinner. Confession: I don’t go out to dinner often at all. And by “not often at all,” I mean that I went once when my dad was visiting in February. But that time, I liked the restaurant we went to: Bua Thai Cuisine.
Not only is their food inexpensive and tasty, they are also very vegan friendly! I nearly had a conniption when I saw that they had on their menu the following disclaimer: “All vegetarian dishes will be prepared with fish sauce and/or oyster sauce, which are animal byproducts, unless it is requested that light soy sauce be substituted.” I squealed with vegan glee. Not only are they warning me ahead of time that their food has these things (meaning I don’t have to bother asking), they’re completely open to making my meal cruelty-free. However, said sauce kind of drowned my stir fry. Didn’t ruin it by any means, but this is a review-ish thing. My mom and my sister (both vegetarian) got vegetable pad thai, and the waitress actually asked if they wanted egg or not.
So, if you’re ever in Claremont, I would totally recommend Bua Thai.
Today, I’m done with classes very early so the three of us are spending the day being touristy at the Santa Monica Pier. We’re going to dinner at a vegan restaurant called Real Food Daily. Tell you all about that...at some point in the near future!
Long time no post!
