I did find a new and decent option at Isle of Capri last night during just such an occasion. Here's a shot, (yes, once again I forgot to pull out the camera before chowing down), of one of the healthiest options I've come across in an Italian place.
|Are my hands shaking or what. New camera and it's still a bit blurry.
So the escarole was nicely wilted and the garbanzo beans were, well, beany but with a little salt and pepper plus some red pepper flakes the dish ended up with some zip.
I just was happy to have a plate of greens and protein instead of a bowl of white pasta and some veggies in a red sauce. Nice change. Not the best dish I've ever had but like I say, everyone can't be the best.
Not my first choice restaurant but for a vegan a nice change.
One aside, I told the waiter vegan, I told him no animal products, (this last phrase is just getting to general and perhaps I should list everything in the world I don't want), but I didn't say no cheese. When I got the dish I saw a few little white specs. My heart skipped a few beats but I tasted it and it turned out to be garlic ... so my heart raced back ahead a few beats and I think that maintained my cardiac balance.
