Parents with young children are doubtless familiar with the very popular Old Spaghetti Factory chain. Especially exciting for kids who visit the Old Spaghetti Factory's Sacramento location, which used to be a train station, is celebrating a birthday meal in the train car that sits in the middle of the restaurant. The restaurant is also a favorite venue for office get-togethers, so between your kids and your co-workers, it's likely that a trip to the Old Spaghetti Factory is somewhere in your future.
Since I went vegan, I've always ordered the spaghetti with mushroom sauce whenever I visit the Old Spaghetti Factory. I assumed it was vegan, but before I put that in this blog, I thought I'd better send them an e-mail to get a definitive answer.
The response I received informed me that the mushroom sauce is, indeed, vegan, as is their minestrone soup and their marinara sauce. Also, their broccoli side dish is vegan if ordered without the Mizithra cheese. Top off any of these selections with a nice glass of chianti, and the vegan life seems pretty good!
The Old Spaghetti Factory has four locations in the Sacramento area: midtown Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, and Elk Grove. More information about their restaurants and their menu is available on their website at http://www.osf.com/.
