Tonight I ate a fantastic meal over phenomenal conversation at Samovar Tea Lounge in Yerba Buena Gardens. One of my favorite parts about San Francisco is how normal vegetarianism is on menus and to everyone here, so living without meat is not only possible but enjoyable. For some time now I’ve been eating a primarily vegetarian diet with the occasional splurge, and I’m quite hopeful and encouraged by the great variety of vegetables and fruits in this region. My goal (I’m very close) is to go completely vegetarian over the course of the next few months, so I’m happy with the options I’m given here. The restaurant was top notch also; I’d recommend it without reservation.
