Ashland and Hill

This is one of my (now) favorite places on main street to sip on some wine and share a few dishes.

when they first opened, you had to order at the counter and they were not very dog friendly, but now the patio has great table service with plenty of options for both a vegetarian or a meat eater. They also have a dog menu, but winnie prefers the (free) homemade Peanut Butter dog treats.

Some of the my favorite dishes to share are the Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Jalapeño Creamed Corn & Their Trio of Tacos. You can mix and match veggie and meat options like Sriracha Shrimp, Cauliflower, and Steak.

JINYA RAMEN BAR

I’ll be honest I only have ever gone here for the ramen, but what else would you when it has “ramen” in the name. Lots of options for meat eaters like Spicy Chicken & Pork ramens (recommend getting the seasoned egg on top), but they also have a vegetarian Soup ramen and Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen.

They have lots of seating inside and outside on the patio (which is dog friendly!), but recommend getting there early or do what most locals do and call ahead for pick-up.

Samosa House

This place is a quick and easy stop to get a vegan or vegetarian combo on the go. They do have plenty of seating inside (and a few tables out), but i’ll be honest they don’t serve wine… so why bother.

You can get a choice of 2 or 3 combos like ALOO CURRY or VEGGIE CHICKEN that comes with your choice of rice and bread. They also have appetizers like SAMOSAS, SPINACH PAKORA and Kababs that are also very good in your extra hungry.
