[QUOTE=Jets Things;3968837]There's an Italian/panini place near me that makes an Italian speck, fontina cheese and baby arugula on a ciabatta panini. It's the tits.[/QUOTE]
Holllllllly molie - I want that!
[QUOTE=Warfish;3968732]Well, back in the day most were pretty bad tbh. And if you're goin in expecting "real meat taste" you'll be sorely dissapointed as well.
"Fake Meat" isn;t really intended to be an exact duplicate of real meat. It's more intended to fill the meal-role that a meat item would fill. Veggie Burgers (mostly) taste nothing like a hamburger. Even the best/closest variations are still pretty far off, but they provide a "burger" for veg-heads so burgers n' fries is a possible meal. Same for most of the products, it allows Veg-heads to get protien from Soy or similar sources, while providing a meat-like bulk and chew to recipies and meal-planning.
The trick for a meat-eater is to approach a beg-product for what it is, not what it is meant to replace. When I did that, I relaized how good a Veggie-Burger can be.
Also, the wife and I eat ALOT of foreign ethnic food, Chineese, Thai, Indian (lots of Indian) and even Pho Vietnameese and some African ethnic food. All of which have strong options for no-meat meals, if one is careful (many asian cuisines toss things like fish-sauce or beef-broth into items you'd never know contained them if you were uninformed). As such though, we get a whole host of tastes and interesting cuisine to persue, with nary a piece of burger in sight.
Trust me, I still rock an Italian Metball Sub bro, really. But most days, the Veg-Head lifestyle is pretty decent.[/QUOTE]
You have to be the biggest almost Vegitarian I have ever seen. You are like those huge dinasaurs that only ate leaves. Warasauras.
