    I live in San Diego and there are a lot of vegetarian and vegan restaurants her but my favorite is Plumeria in City Heights. Thai style and so tasty.

    I do not know if Basmati Indian Cuisine, 2444 Solomons Island Road,Annapolis, MD 21401 (410-2666-355 is on your list of restaurants.
    Their $11 buffet was almost all vegan and vegetarian except for three chicken dishes, chicken soup and rice pudding. There is also a vegan dessert of honey balls or carrot pudding.(They usually have Mullagatawni which is vegan or vegetarian.} Annapolis does not have a strictly vegetarian restaurant but this comes close.

    The Annapolis Whole Foods buffet sometimes has meatless Mondays
