My first real meal

It really is possible to order vegan food at a restaurant. P.F. Chang's China Bistro in Birmingham has several vegetarian entrees, many of which are vegan-friendly. I ordered vegetable chow fun. It's a dish made with rice noodles and slivered vegetables.  I had some questions about an ingredient they call "vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce," but their online menu says it's not made with any animal products.  I ate half of the food and saved the rest for tomorrow.

For  local vegan-friendly fare, I recommend the hummus dip at Mellow Mushroom. It's just an appetizer, but I've ordered it as a meal several times. In fact, I had it for dinner last night.
