I'd like to take credit for this one, but our vegan buddy was out the door earlier than us and had already made a few laps of Chicago when he keyed in on Kramers for a quick bite & noticed there was a lot more going on than a corner health food store. He ushered us back there after our tour of the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit at the Art Museum and we ventured upstairs to the Cafe! Veggie Burritos and Wraps always jump off the menu at us first at places like this, so that's what we went with. We started asking the wonderful and friendly staff behind the counter what items were prepared with oil and if the beans/rice, etc had oil in them. Not only were they super helpful, they wanted to know more about our strange oil-free diet! Me not being one short on words gave them "I lost 100lbs following the McDougall Diet and its no oil and all the veggie burritos you can eat :)" They were really excited and FILLED our burrito with EVERYTHING OIL-FREE they had in the back! Carrots, sprouts, beans, steamed veggies, raw veggies, you name it, kitchen sink healthy burrito! It was so good it was one of those "gosh I wish we could eat here every day for the rest of our lives moments".
