The Vegetarian Resource Group's
Maryland Vegetarian Dining Guide is ONLINE
The Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG), a national non-profit educational organization
devoted to educating the public about vegetarianism, has made its nine page Maryland
dining guide accessible on the VRG website. This guide to restaurants and stores in Maryland
offering vegetarian food is now available at www.vrg.org/travel/mddining.htm
Whether you're a Baltimore native or traveler just passing through the state,
the guide will help you find some great vegetarian spots to eat at. The guide is
organized into Baltimore neighborhoods and towns all around the state.
If you are attending a convention at the Baltimore Convention Center,
you might want to take a look at what is served in the nearby Harborplace restaurants.
If you are sightseeing in Fells Point, you might want to stop in at Liquid Earth.
Located at 1626 Aliceanna St., this vegetarian coffeeshop and juice bar has a menu
with daily specials, including hearty soups, portabello mushroom sandwiches,
veggie Reuben sandwiches, salads, whole grain bread, and more.
On the Charles Street corridor there is a long list of veggie-friendly establishments
offering everything from Afghani, Thai, and Ethiopian cuisine.
The dining guide also lists restaurants from Annapolis, Columbia, Frostburg, Lutherville,
Rockville, Timonium, Wheaton and more. Over 130 restaurants are represented.
In Columbia, MD there are two all vegetarian restaurants. The Joy of Living at
7185 Columbia Gateway Drive offers a daily vegan lunch buffet, and The Mango Grove at
6365 B Dobbin Road is an all vegetarian Indian restaurant located in a shopping mall.
In Frostburg, Cafe 101 at 101 E. Main Street, offers a full vegetarian menu,
including Broccoli-Potato Burgers, Marinated Tofu Sandwiches, Vegetarian Shish Kabob,
and Chick Pea Salad Sandwich. They note which of their menu items are vegan.
In Rockville, there are two vegan Chinese restaurants: The Vegetable Garden and Yuan Fu Vegetarian.
Both offer a wide variety of dishes including several using mock meat, poultry, and fish
made from either soybeans or wheat gluten.
