Whenever I travel, I go out of my way to dine at at least one vegan or vegetarian restaurant.
I just got back from a trip for work to San Jose. I ditched my group during the lunch session, as they're not really into veg cuisine, to "go find my peeps" at a local vegan restaurant. The Good Karma Vegan House was absolutely amazing! For $7.75, I got a heaping plate with brown rice, indian tofu, "lemon chicken", stir-fried vegetables, and a drumstick, and for dessert some tapioca pudding. If I ever get back to San Jose, I'm definitely going back to Good Karma!
