Vegetarian recommendations in Mobile, Alabama?

jjonak | Aug 6, 201107:42 PM     7

We are in Mobile, Alabama under unexpected conditions - our parents were hit in a car accident while traveling through on vacation. Because our mother is in the hospital in critical condition, and no one knows when she will regain consciousness, we may be here for several weeks.

My husband and I are vegetarian, and foodies. Where we're from in Eugene, Oregon, that isn't a contradiction. We eat dairy and eggs, but no seafood.

Are there any restaurants that you'd recommend that can accommodate vegetarians?

We don't care if the restaurant serves meat, so long as there are one or two good vegetarian items on the menu (or dishes that can be made vegetarian).

Any recommendations?

So far, we've been the most impressed with the avocado enchiladas and chile rellenos enchiladas at El Chico. The pad thai at Busaba Thai has been okay (better than Bangkok Thai). Lunch at the Sunflower Cafe at Virginia's Health Foods was good - nothing to write home about, but a welcome change-up from eating side dishes of frozen veggies. Ruby Tuesday's had a surprising amount of vegetable side dishes and a spaghetti squash with marina dish.

Any other recommendations? Because of hospital visiting hours, which are throughout the day, we can't travel more than half an hour from Mobile.

Thanks in advance so much!
