Is a Steak House a Vegan’s Nightmare?

After a completely wonderful day we went back to the room to get ready for dinner. This cute critter was waiting for us.

Over my many trips I have gotten towel critters and I have not. I think it depends on the maid and her abilities to make them and the time she has. I imagine there are times when she is busy enough that she doesn’t have time. I’m an adult though and the appearance of a towel critter is not going to make or break my vacation.

We took advantage of the presence of the concierge and asked her to take our picture. We did look lovely if I do say so myself.

Tonight we were going to Toni’s Surf and Turf.

Erika has always been easy going about where we eat. She’s a vegan for animal rights reasons but she’s never been judgemental of me.

We took a golf cart to the restaurant and were seated. We ordered wine (of course). Erika spoke to the manager about her dietary needs. He asked if she was okay with honey. He actually said “honeybees” but she knew what he meant. She said no, she doesn’t eat honey.

They told her that the chef would make her a special meal.

They brought the first course. I had a salad. The salad with the apple is one of my favorites.

Erika was given a vegetable brochette. It looked and smelled delicious. About two seconds later the waiter came back and took it away. It had been made with honey. They remade it, sans the honey.

I had a ribeye. I always have ribeye. I don’t eat a lot of red meat, but when I do, I make it count. Hehe.

They made Erika another dish with couscous as the base.

There was dessert. Mine was pretty but I’m not going to lie, it was pretty blah. Erika had sorbet.

Erika and I wimped out again. We were tired. We went back to the room. We read and I had leftover wine.

I was glad that we were on the same page. There’s nothing worse than one person who wants to be out late partying and the other person just wants to curl up with a good book.

One of my favorite authors, Elin Hildebrand, usually writes books to come out in the summer. This year she wrote one that came out in October, Winter in Paradise. It’s a series.

It was so good. I can’t wait for the next one to come out. I have read every single one of her books.

We had big plans for the next day!

  1. I am catching up on your blog entries. I have now read all of her books as well based on your recommendation of “Silver Girl” a few years ago. Thank you!
