I really enjoy a weeknight dinner with my hubby at FuD. It’s a local vegan restaurant with many gluten-free options.
Tonight we started with the spicy tofu nuggets, a semi-junk food I would eat every single day if I could.
We split the jackfruit reuben and nachos topped with a wild rice mixture. For dessert, we shared cinnamon ice cream with house made caramel sauce. I am not a big ice cream fan, but this stuff is divine!
We laughed during dinner at the conversations around us. It’s a tiny restaurant and difficult to not hear what everyone else is saying. It would have been possible to make Sh*t Diners at FuD say video this evening. “Have you seen Forks Over Knives?” “Is there a low fat cashew shake?” “Does the BBQ have salt in it? What sea does the salt come from?” “He’s doing the Engine 2 Diet.” “Is the rainbow taco 100% raw?” And I participate in this, too…I asked tonight what brand the brown rice tortillas are because I’m cautious.
I realized this evening that the wait staff at a specialized restaurant work really hard, as the likelihood of having a guest with multiple dietary restrictions, medically necessitated or not, is greater than a chain restaurant in the suburbs. The ease with which this is handled at FuD is surely part of why I enjoy going there for an indulgent dinner on a weeknight.
