I was exceedingly underwhelmed with this place but I think I may have just not ordered very well or been unlucky, as the food I saw on other people's plates looked way better. There were also mostly Chinese people eating there, which leads me to believe the food is more broadly accepted as "good" and "authentic" than the usual soy meat and broccoli passed off in other veg Chinese restaurants.

Since I went at lunch time, I decided to try the lunch special for $8.25, which allows one to chose 4 of about 7 items. I love variety so this dish seemed right up my alley. I went with the noodles with bean sprouts and steamed veggies to be healthy. The former was simple but good and the latter would have been good if it didn't come cold! I also tried the pan-fried dumplings (delicious!) and the taro-stuffed bean cakes, which were disappointing. The latter were basically big fried tofu triangles with a little taro paste inside. One of my "bean cakes" was missing the taro paste - the interesting part! - so it was just fried tofu. Meh.

I also ordered the fried taro and candied walnut entree for $7.50 because I love taro and this sounded really interesting. While I enjoyed the first few bites, it wasn't anything spectacular and would have made a much better appetizer shared among people, versus a single-person entree. The dish was basically fried starch with a bland sauce and came with no vegetables, noodles, or rice to make it feel more like an entree. That said, the candied walnuts were delicious.

If I were in the area again, I'd stop in and see what's special for the day but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

Authentic vegan asian food that is irresistible! They had vegan steamed buns with mock meats, fried tofu appetizers, and other great fresh tofu dishes. I had to come back the next day for more... I am definitely coming back the next time I stop in San Fran.
