Heather- Try Qdoba in Gainesville. AWESOME vegan tortilla soup. Add rice and beans and get a side of chips and guac..perfection! I try to get over there when I can..I'm coming from Fairfax so it is a little bit of a trip.
Leesburg! I teach in Ashburn. I've been living with family for the past year and a half, and they are very UN-conscious (to say the least). It's hard. But I hope to be on my own in the next couple months and TOTALLY IN CHARGE of what I bring into my kitchen/home. VERY excited!
We recently moved from Kingstowne all the way out to Nokesville. Does anyone go to Lotus Vegetarian out in Chantilly? http://www.lotusvegetarian.com/ Maybe we should pick a day and all get together for lunch or dinner!?!
Oh, this is dangerous! I discovered http://www.kindkupcakes.com/ right here in Ashburn! I ordered vegan strawberry cupcakes for my daughter's 1st birthday, and everyone said they were fantastic-- better even than the non-vegan ones my mom bought from a different cupcake place. I could probably have made them myself (with a recipe, of course!), but I definitely couldn't have made them look as pretty!
Has anyone found anyplace that makes a vegan banh mi? I was absolutely addicted to vegetarian banh mi when I was pregnant with my son and lived in Austin, TX, but I've been too intimidated to brave Vietnamtown by myself!
