Home on 8th is a Chinese restaurant that specializes in vegetarian dishes, but is not exclusively vegetarian. In addition to pure vegetable or tofu dishes, they offer a number of faux meats and have a "Vegetarian and Vegan" section of the menu. Within this section, they even identify which items "aren't for vegans."
They offer traditional veg appetizers (spring rolls, soy drumsticks, veg chicken skewers, veg dumplings, scallion pancakes), steamed veggie and tofu dishes, noodles, fried rice, and veggie/tofu/faux meat concoctions.
Lunch is served from 11am-4pm and there are TWO lunch menus, one is veg specific, the other isn't. The veg specific menu is about $2 more, but you can find veg dishes on the "normal" lunch menu and get that cheap price ($6).
NOTE: Neither the wonton NOR the egg drop soup are vegetarian or vegan. Both use chicken broth.
