Who would dare attempt to fool a carnivorous pirate with fake meat? Lovin' Spoonfuls would, and they would fool those scurvy-ridden pirates to the bone. This Tucson vegan/vegetarian hotspot has divided its treasures into a breakfast menu that offers various tofu scrambles; a lunch menu that contains items such as soy sesame-chicken salad and a veggie classic burger; and a dinner menu with "beefy" Asian pepper steak. Although their fake meat products could fool any meat-loving matey, Spoonfuls sticks to a strict honor code of honesty: They will gladly provide information about ingredients and products used upon request. Lovin' Spoonfuls is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
