Isn't there good vegan food in Lansing? I would think with it being a big college town there would be plenty. Check with Happy Cow. Just google vegan restaurants in Lansing and they will come up.
Also in GR is Marie Catrib, Little Africa, Gia (sp.) House and other mom and pops that you can custom order. I use to get good veggie hash from Wolfgangs. Pita House on 28th St. has great falafel sandwiches. Order veggie hash without egg and cheese at Real Foods on Eastern. I use to have it easy when I lived in GR.
Marie Catrib is really good, but usually a long wait to get seated. Gia House is an old stand-by vegetarian restaurant that is very good with vegans. I think Brick Road Pizza had the best selection though. They have sandwiches made with tempeh.
Holland is home to one of the best vegan snack bars ... Pure ... I think it is. You would think they would know how to treat a vegan, but no! I picked up Thai food at the local restaurant and brought home stuff with fish oil or shrimp paste, yuck!
Nice to meet another Michigander here. I think there are more of us.
