This is the only place that I'm aware of in the area that offers full plates of vegan food, versus just veggie patties or snacks. All the other restaurants around here specialize in fried chicken, pizza, and burgers, so it's a real treat.

I've been a few times and gotten the medium-sized plate ($8) so have tried many of their options. I really enjoyed the seasoned veggie bulgar wheat, which I got in addition to the brown rice. I also really enjoyed the fava beans, which I expected to be bland, but were very flavorful and provided a great balance. My first time there, there were more veggies available (okra, pumpkin, greens), but last time, it was mostly soy meats and only cabbage and okra. My first plate was very good but last time it was slightly bland. It seems like their soy meats have more flavor but as I'm trying to avoid so much soy, I'm tending toward the veggies, which are a little bland.

The plate was FULL of food and it all tasted good - very good food for a great price. Next time, I'm going to try one of their juices to go with it. The guy serving me was also very friendly and funny, I look forward to going back.
