Ann Arbor trip - eco taxi & vegan options at airport

During my recent trip to Ann Arbor I flew Northwest from LAX to Detroit and back.

I took Green Taxi there and that was a great experience. I had a great driver, who picked me up (on time) in a Prius. There were even free bottles of water for passengers (not so eco-friendly though)

On my departure date I arrived at LAX early and was very disappointed at the vegan options in the NWA terminal (Terminal #2). I circled around the restaurants many times, almost like being at home and checking the fridge and cabinets multiple times before realizing nothing new appeared since the first time you checked.
  • Starbucks, Burger King, and La Brea Bakery didn't have any good options. Starbucks had bagels but couldn't toast them.
  • L.A. Roadhouse-Route 66 had a lot of food but they refused to make any substitutions
  • I finally settled on Wolfgang Puck Express and bought a Naked Juice and a toasted bagel with jam. They also had fruit cups.
Detroit McNamara Terminal had a lot more options. I left around dinner time so I went to Online Cafe (Gate A36) and found a great hummus & tabouli wrap, chips, peanut butter crackers, and even a chocolate Silk soy milk.
