Re: Restaurants

What about Japanese restaurants?
I usually get the nori maki (vegan "sushi" rolls).
Those appear fat free (if you hold the avocado)
Even with avocado, it is just one little slice.
I also get suki-aki stirfry which seems to be fat free.
Veggie curry is good, as is miso soup.
Most, if not all, Japanese food is cooked to order,
so you can ask them to make it without oil.
