Hip Hampden Restaurant With Vegetarian Options
Rocket To Venus is a retro/space-themed restaurant. The vegetarian options include falafel "Wimpies," a tofu sloppy joe, Szechuan noodles, deep fried pickles, potato gnocchi, and the unexpectedly popular brussels sprouts (roasted in balsamic and olive oil). Most of these items are vegan or can be made vegan - just ask!

I ate dinner at Rocket To Venus tonight and wasn't very impressed with my meal. The Sloppy Jo-fu was literally a pile of scrambled tofu and sauce on a bun, which made the bun far too soggy to pick it up. The first few bites were decent enough but there was a lot more tofu on the plate than I could really bear to eat.
I think my bad experience was largely based on the menu item that I chose. There were some pretty tasty-sounding salads on the menu which I probably should have ordered instead. On a more positive note, there were a number of really interesting drink specials and our waitress was pretty attentive. Also, if I wasn't basing my rating primarily on the food, I would probably give Rocket To Venus an extra point for having a neat ambiance (and a really great story about how the restaurant got its name - check it out on their website!)
