I live in the sticks, and there are no "vegan" restaurants anywhere near here. But I can find something that will do, and on occasion with a minor substitution, something great. Finally went to the fancy restaurant in town with family, discovered they have a veggie burger. The patty (pattie? I'm tired) is made from scratch by the chef (and then frozen, I'm sure) but they had to serve it without bread, because the patty was vegan but the bread wasn't. But the patty was so good, it was worth it to eat with visiting omnis and have a special something for me! I asked, and the staff was very kind to check things out for me. So just keep looking around.

Another restaurant I visit now and then has a chicken oriental salad, but will substitute a vegan burger for the chicken. I always tell them just to microwave my burger, because I DON'T want it on the grill (yuck!). But it is a delightful meal.

And if you go to one of those Mongolian Grill places, just have them clean the grill really really well before they fix your stuff. I had someone with me once who was not vegan, but was deathly allergic to seafood, so she told them that and they cleaned it beautifully. I've only eaten at those places a few times, but they have lots of veggies.

Fortunately the days of a dry baked potato are passing away.

Indiana is quite a switch from Texas, hope you enjoy new home. You might miss Mexican food the most. I always get whole beans instead of refried, after making sure that they don't cook the beans with animal fat. I leave off the dairy, and usually can get something fairly good to eat. I think Mexican food is my "comfort food" so it's important that I be able to find something.
