For our last meal as a group, we dined atAchiotein The Grand Hyatt on the Riverwalk.
I was stoked with the meal that the chef prepared especially for me! We started with a
butter lettuce, avocado and tomato salad with a ginger soy dressing. It was then
followed by the main entree, tofu, noodles and veggies in a light vegan stroganoff
sauce. And for dessert, mango sorbet and a soy latte. My big compliments to the chef
who knows that there is more to vegan cooking then veggies and rice!
