October 1st is World Vegetarian Day, kicking off Vegetarian Awareness Month.
One of my favorite vegetarian dishes in Memphis is Shang Hai's tofu pad prik.
I'm also a big fan of:
• Casa Grill's falafel hummus platter — simple flavors and a classic
• Boscos' black bean and goat cheese tamale — the only place in town I know of that serves a non-meat-filled tamale. Am I wrong?
• Kooky Canuck's veggie burger — the patties (2!) are a little crispy. A good hearty burger.
• India Palace's palak paneer — really all the vegetarian options on the buffet are good, but this creamy dish is my favorite.
I'm really only scratching the surface here. What are some of your favorites?
