Pork Yakisoba with Cabbage Salad (:sauropod: Marinated baked tofu)

Question: will there be a vegetarian version of the yakisoba noodles this year? I absolutely love veggie yakisoba, so I was extremely bummed out last year when I was told there were no meatless noodles available! I ended up just picking the meat out of the pork yakisoba instead.

Hi Oce, we substitute baked tofu for the vegetarian servings since we started yakisoba. We also do rice noodles and a tamari marinade for gluten free folks. I can’t guess as to why you had to do that but I’m sorry nonetheless. If you reread the menu, the green dinosaurs denote the veggie option for every meal. :sauropod:

Thanks, Beau. Let me explain what happened last year: when I came up to the dinner line on yakisoba night, the volunteers pointed me to the vegetarian table, where there was a pot of tofu/veggies and nothing else. There were no noodles (or carbs) whatsoever. I asked, and was told that was all there was for vegetarians. I thought this was bizarre, but that was what I was told! Did something weird happen? As I primarily need the carbs (and can’t eat tofu), I preferred to pick the meat out of the yakisoba available.

I have read the menu, and understand there’s an emoji to denote the veggie options. However, it’s not clear whether the parentheticals refer to simply a different protein option like the plant-based patties, or a whole different dish like the chickpea curry - it flips back and forth, so I still don’t know whether the plan for vegetarians this year includes noodles or not?

(Reposted this because I realized it didn’t come across right the first time, sorry!)

I’m interested in the answer too, as it affects how much food we plan to bring. I also didn’t see vegetarian noodles last year, just tofu/veggies without noodles. It’s not clear from the above if the tofu was supposed to be a different meal (as with the chickpea curry), or a protein swap for the pork on the noodles (in which case something went sideways last year).
