It's been decades since Sam Konata dished out that first vegetarian meal. These days at his small place, he serves as many fist bumps as he does sweet, sticky slices of vegan banana bread. His menu, like several others in the area, is rooted in the Rastafari religion that blossomed in Jamaica in the 1930s. It's based on a diet called Ital (rhymes with "vital") that evolved from Hindu vegetarian traditions delivered to Jamaica by indentured Indian servants who arrived with the British. The rules are simple, Konata explains: "Nothing that eat, walk, swim, or crawl."
