While wandering around downtown Portland looking for a place to eat dinner, a police officer stopped to ask my friend and me if we needed help finding something (how nice!). We asked for his recommendations of vegetarian friendly restaurants and he directed us to Veggie Grill. It is a chain restaurant but located only on the West Coast, so I had never heard of it. We got there and I was thrilled to see so many healthy vegetarian options. I went with the All Hail Kale salad (added tempeh) and a side of cauliflower mashed potatoes. Both were incredible! I need to get started on my petition to bring Veggie Grill to the Gulf Coast!
