Post #2#, Swept Away.... Coconut milk and green lemons?? Look no further than The Curry Mile in South Manchester. One of the biggest number of restaurants in one area, in Europe.

Yummy.
And kiwiandy24.... All Tanger had was meat - unless you liked lettuce!! I ended up eating horsemeat pie. Utterly vile.

The Flemish city of Gent is about to have a vegetarian day once a week. It's a long time, ten years, since I visited Gent, but I remember visiting a good restaurant called Panda

Post #20#.... How can you have a dish with soy sauce - and wish for rarely salty?? Surely that's like asking for pork sausages without any pig!!

Indeed, from now on, every Thursday is a vegetarian day in Ghent, every public school will only offer vegetarian meals on this day!
The Panda restaurant still exists, and is still as popular as ever. But my favourite is Avalon, near the Gravensteen!

To give only vegetarian food in a school here in GB, would be forbidden.

I love soy sauce on my greens, I finally learn how to say Soy sauce in Chinese. Its normally a very theatrical presentation every time I had to mime to get soy sauce...

I am starving... It was hell in INNER MONGOLIA... everything is LAMB and COWS.... and its hell exotic, how they cook things... anything without meat looks so bad. I cant find the cheese. My only REFUGE was that QINGHAI eatery that is everywhere in China. I ask them to remove the meat, and they sometimes forget though. Coz its so strange for them, since i look local to them.

I WANT PASTA with tomato sauce... with cheese... but I cant afford it in a 3 star hotel.

My hostel once have it, but it was so expensive. And it reads, Pasta with catsup, so no thanks!!!

I want shrimps too. I want GiANT prawns in coconut milk. I want that Fish called MILK FISH... Its from the Philippines.

But I am not going to be a meat eating vegetarian...

I used to be vegetarian. When I was 14 I went on a French exchange and stayed with a French family. I was hungry the whole time....The French think you are mad if you don't eat meat. I learnt to say "Je suis vegetarienne" and from the looks I got I wondered if I'd learnt the phrase wrong and told them I was from Mars.

Although I like eating meat, I do like a break from it every few days, and I really like eating vegetables and pulses and get fed up (and constipated) if I can't enough good veg.

Travelled round Andalucia in Spain last year, not good for vegetarians at all. And most eastern european countries would be tough.

Australia and New Zealand were not very veggie-friendly, especially outside the big cities. If you eat out you're stuck with quiche or something.

Of course, the best place for being a vegetarian is definitely India.
