How can you call yourself a veggie and eat fish?...that's just crap...fish are live beings that get killed before consumption.

If you want to avoid certain foods in each country you visit, find out a small phrase, write it down and use it!!! I have food allergies and I managed to survive...in fact I found SEAsia, India and NZ particularly easy to find food I could eat, with no problems whatsoever.

VEGETABLES, last I checked, are Living creatures too. They grow, breathe, reproduce and even listen to music and unlike most Americans, they have good taste in music.

People who don't eat fish and dairy products are masochistic species of vegetarians, called vegans. I'm not a big fan of fish, so I can upgrade to that, if you put me in a city, where MARGHARITA pizza and Tomato Spaghetti are cheap, I could eat that FOREVER.

I have been vegan for 20 years. There's nothing 'masochistic' about it at all. I have visited plenty of good vegetarian and vegan restaurants from Victoria BC, through Amsterdam, NL to Christchurch, NZ and other places in-between. I realise that some people will try and portray it as 'puritanical', but being agnostic that is their problem.

Living in Britain, food labelling has improved over the past 20 years due to various 'scares' (BSE etc), so buying manufactured foods that contain no animal-derived ingredients is not a problem. Oh and vegetables are not living 'creatures', though your comment does remind me of an old poem by Roger McGough.

The east of Turkey is a pretty bad place as well to be a vegetarian, last year we travelled for about 28 days over there, and we ate 21 'pide kasarli', pizza with goat cheese...

Good taste, indeed!

Like Beet It! or Sgt. Bell Pepper?

It seems that all Veggie dish are side dishes only...

I am a neo vegetarian, since October, so I wish my greens have Garlic, onions and Soy Sauce.
But they are rarely salty...

They call this a culinary haven, Sichuan, Chongqing... But I keep eating in Muslim restaurants instead.

I just wish I could go someplace, where people use COCONUT MILK and green lemons (Southeast Asia)
