Taiwanese and Cantonese in a basement

This basement restaurant might not be easily noticed when driving down Nicollet Avenue, but they have a very large selection of vegetarian items on the menu, and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating.

The cuisine is mostly Cantonese, with many mock meat items (beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, squid, and more), as well as some Taiwanese specialties (the owners are both Taiwanese).

At lunch time on weekends they also have some dim sum, including fresh made organic soy milk.

Best mock meat dishes I have ever had. My favorites are the sweet & sour mock chicken, mock chicken moo goo gai pan, and the pepper fried mock pork (and I didn't even like pork back in my omni days). The coconut soy milkshake was also delicious, but sadly they have taken that off the menu.

As many have mentioned, there isn't much in the way of ambiance here, but the food is so good you hardly notice.

I eat here about once a week. I don't know of any other place in Minnesota that has such a variety of mock meats. I never get tired of the place. With every meal I always include their home-made vegan wonton soup and vegetable dumplings.
