I'm in Maryland about 15 min outside of DC.

I've been to the Richmond vegetarian festival.... small, but very active veg*n community down there. It is the reverse up here, large community but few people turn out to events.

yeah that's one reason i like richmond so much is that there are tons of vegans and plenty of places to get vegan dishes.

I went to high school in Rockville. I left there a long time ago but my parents still live in the area so I'm there at least a couple of times a year.

Have you ever tried Yuan Fu restaurant on Rockville Pike? It's a vegan Chinese restaurant, and one of my favorite restaurants in the world! I always hit it two or three times whenever I'm back home.

Drummer Boy;

I work in downtown Rockville so I have had many lunches at Yuan Fu. It is one of my favorite places to eat!

Any tips about where to eat in DC? I'll be there for a few days but I won't have time to travel much beyond the Georgetown univ and downtown areas. Much appreciated!

If you are actually in D.C. there isn't as much, but there are some good choices:

Java Green by the Farragut North Metro at 20th & K
It is an all vegan coffee shop with some Korean food. Only the biscotti is not vegan.

Then there is Sticky Fingers all vegan bakery. They also have sandwhiches and coffee ( stickyfingersbakery.com )

There is Nirvana around the corner. High quality Indian food.

Assylum in Georgetown has a vegan menu

There are also some fantastic ethiopian places in DC.

Compassion Over Killing maintains a very good guide to veg*n resources in the DC area:
