Going Vegetarian – Day Five

Dinner at Wok-Hay

Today was the fifth day on my vegetarian diet.  Another sucky/stressful day at work turned into another trip out to eat.  Yay stress!  Boo diet!  I ordered the Kung Pao Chicken (but substituted Tofu) with steamed brown rice.

This is the best tofu I’ve had so far and I really like it.  Instead of spongy cubes (Shono’s) or crispy cubes (Stir Fry), Wok-Hay slices the tofu fairly thin and crisps it up really well.  The vegetables, especially the snow peas, were quite good – just the right texture.  The heat of this dish was a little on the light side; I’ll probably ask for them to spice it up a bit next time, and there definitely will be a next time since this restaurant is close enough for lunch at work and on the way home from work.

I’m really enjoying tofu.  I can definitely see that preparation is key, though.

  1. So true on Tofu! Preparation is definitely key. When preparing Tofu at home it’s a good idea to drain the water out of it. This makes all the difference!
