Vegetarian cuisine, anyone?

Its hard being a vegetarian in this city, it really really is. Trying to decide on a place to have dinner with friends or family turns into a mental battle of feverishly going over menus and remembering what places offer at least soup that doesnt have only Chicken corn soup on their menu. The only two places that come to mind when its about eating wholesome good vegetarian food are Ponderosa [located behind Kaybees] and Thali Inn [near Nehari Inn on Boat Basin]. It fails to surprise me how every restaurant in town insists on having 10,000 items featuring meat and will have one measly item with vegetables. Going to coffee bars like Espresso and Lattetude means munching away on horrible french fries while everyone else chomps away on their sandwiches. And don’t tell me that salad is a meal that is served at every restaurant. If any restaurant owner is reading this, please, pay attention to my [and my many fellow vegetarians’] dilemma.

    I think the problem is there just arn’t enough vegetarians in karachi, if there were, the restaurants would be forced to cater to them.

    I eat meat but I prefer vegetables and non-meat dishes. Even as a meat eater, I should have more variety to choose from. Maybe the reason people do eat more meat is because there is only meat to choose from. Give everyone a choice! Thats what real consumerism is about.
    And you look at some of the aunties eating out at places, and hmm they really need to go easy on the red meat….

    I hear ya!

    Each time I eat out – whether in Lahore, Karachi, or Isloo – the response to “I’m a vegetarian” is akin to if I had said “I used to be a woman.”

    Well, there’s always the artery-destroying Chip Butty…*die with glee*
