Looking for some help here. I like eating out. I am an omnivore. I eat meat BUT I want some veggies with my meal.
I am trying to eat healthier at home, which includes Fish or other meat, some carbs like brown rice or black beans and lots of veggies like a cup or so of broccoli, brussels sprouts etc.
There are lots of great options in West Seattle for eating out but I can’t find a place that serves a generous portion of veggies with your meal. Most entrees I have had recently include 3 wilted green beans as the “seasonal vegetable.
Who can help me find a place that is not strictly vegetarian but can provide plenty of the green stuff?

Dinners at JaKs come with a large salad and a heaping helping of broccoli. That’s the only place that comes to mind right now.
It’s mostly an a la carte world.January 10, 2013 at 1:45 am #782444
I appreciate that Elliot Bay’s standard sides include chef’s-choice vegetables and a lovely quinoa salad. I don’t remember them being skimpy, but they’re definitely not filling half the plate with vegetables.January 10, 2013 at 2:01 am #782445
JaKs was the first place I thought of, too. Lots of Thai restaurant’s have good all-veggie dish options.January 10, 2013 at 2:13 am #782446
it’s not west seattle but i had lunch at the aussie steak house in south center today and had a really nice serving of veggies with my mahi…
you can ask for no starch and double veggies just about anyplace you eat out nowJanuary 10, 2013 at 2:19 am #782447January 10, 2013 at 2:46 am #782448
Thanks all, i am encouraged by these ideas! I will start with Jaks tomorrow night.

JaK’s will let you sub your potato side with extra veggies (i.e. broccoli and carrots) as well. Not that I would ever do that but some of my low-carb eating friends went that route last time I dined there. The UFO counts as a veggie to me! Lee’s does sell sides of steamed broccoli for a few bucks, or try the grilled veggies at Buddha Ruksa too. Pretty basic but good for ya and excellent paired with the crispy garlic chicken of course!January 18, 2013 at 5:44 am #782450
I know that you are looking for restaurants that serve a good wholesome plate of veggies, however, I’d like to let you know that my newly opened clinic on California Ave is now a pick up site for Tiny’s Farm organic veggie boxes. Great way to support your local farmers, decrease carbon footprint, get seasonal veggies and a chance to introduce veggies to your food regime you might never go out and buy at the store. Let me know if you are interested.January 23, 2013 at 5:31 pm #782451January 23, 2013 at 7:04 pm #782452
