Fast food with veggies, brown rice, and soba noodles
Samurai Sam's is a Scottsdale-based fast food chain with 22 locations in the metro Phoenix area.
Now there's not a lot here for vegetarians, but then there's not a lot on the menu at this chain in the first place.
They serve rice bowls, with veggies, brown rice (.25 extra for the privilege), and their famous Teriyaki sauce; a veggie wrap (same ingredients as the bowl, but in a tortilla); and the Yaki Soba, a soba noodle dish in a bowl with veggies and Teriyaki sauce.
On the side, they offer a mixed-greens salad; which has got to be a first for fast food joints.
That's not a lot of options, but it is fast and it is a better option for vegetarians than most of those other fast-food places. And each entree is filling and can be had for less than $5.
