So this may make many of you laugh out loud, but my vegan sister will be joining me and a couple girlfriends in NOLA on a long weekend trip in October. I have been to NOLA several times; the other members of our group have been once or not at all.
My sister, bless her heart, is a vegan who will eat fish on occasion but not dairy products. I am having a hard time coming up with options, since the rest of us not only have no dietary restrictions but are welcoming a weekend of decadent New Orleans fare.
We are staying in a rental condo in the Marigny, right above Mona's Cafe which appears to be a mediterranean-style place. My sister will eat hummus and pita chips until the cows come home so she clearly won't starve.
Does anyone know of places that have vegan options besides a garden salad or veggie burger? Or preparations of fish without the cream, butter, or mayo? She does not have a problem just asking for the items to be prepared without those things, but I am hoping to find someplace where she will actually get to sample New Orleans cuisine within the narrow parameters of what she is willing to eat.
