Every once in a while I am fortunate enough to stumble upon a fabulous vegetarian eatery. I've actually dined at this one, VEG, numerous times and sampled a variety of dishes, from appetizers to main courses. This restaurant is located in Sarasota, Florida.
Marty and Maggie Glucklich, while living in South Africa, had a dream. They have the goal of supporting local growers and producers and are ever so mindful of global sustainable fishing and farming practices.
Their menu says it all :
"Our philosophy, quite simply, is unpretentious. Veg offers a variety of seasonal, creative and flavorful foods that bring a fresh perspective to vegetarian, vegan and seafood cuisines."
On this particular day I started with a South African red wine, a cup of mushroom barley soup and the fish tacos. These tacos are made with the fish, BASA. They are served in a soft corn tortillas with cabbage salsa fresca and an oriental ginger dressing. YUM!
