Oh my, how my life has changed. Just a month ago, if somebody had suggested I go out to dinner at a vegetarian restaurant, I would have laughed heartily in their face and gone back to eating a burger. But things are different now. So, when the Schmeckalowskis invited us out to a dinner at Zen Gardens in Cambridge, I accepted the challenge whole heartedly.
I was expecting a sparse meal that would leave me unfulfilled and eyeing the nearest Wendy's. But I was wrong. I ordered spring rolls, some tofu sushi, and something called "Teryaki Mushroom Cutlets". All of these were delicious. And so much food for not much money. I barely touched the cutlets because I was already full. And everybody else's meals looked just as good (except for the eggplant, yech).
So, my culinary world is expanding. Zen Gardens is a chain, so if you have one in your area and you're looking for something different, definitely give it a try.
