Our take on the Bull City Vegan Challenge

So, we jumped at the chance to take part in this event and are really excited to see how many people have already come out looking to participate.  I just want to shed some light on our approach to it.  I like a competition as much as the next guy but I also don’t want to lose sight of the whole purpose of dining out.  So, while we only have one dish officially entered in the challenge, we do want to make sure we have a number of tasty vegan dishes on our menu.  This month and always.

For instance, as October 1st approached, Josh and I took stock of the menu so we could make sure the waiters could guide what was likely to be a higher-than-normal amount of vegan diners through our entire menu.  Well, guess what, three of our appetizers are, or can be easily made, vegan.  Our entry into the event?  That was easy enough because it was already on the menu.  But I decided that I didn’t want to stop there because, assuming that most are not dining alone, I wanted to offer another vegan entree option.  At least most nights.

So far, so good.  This weekend, we ran some tasty cheese-free cabbage enchiladas and tonight, as part of our taco night menu, we have two vegan options (in addition to the pipian roja which, again, is our “official vegan dish”).

At any rate, just thought you might want to know.  Again, as far as I’m concerned, it’s all about having a tasty meal.
