I'm from New Hampshire, where it can be very tough to find vegan food, so you can imagine how I felt when I came here and had over 100 items to chose from. They were out of fake crispy chicken the day that I arrived, so I chose a crispy beef stir fry and a side order of vegan wontons instead. Needless to say, they were both great. I'm not really one for desserts, but the chocolate cake was incredible. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to return.

Yum. This place has the best selection of vegan and raw foods that I have ever seen. They have about 4 different types of vegan wraps, 10 types of other vegan sandwiches and more vegan cookies and cakes than you can shake a stick at (the girl that I went with ended up going nuts and buying about 10 different cakes).

I didn't know that vegan food could taste so good! The buffalo wings (BBQ seitan on a wooden stick) were great, and even came with a vegan garlic bleu cheese sauce. I had the soy pork chops with collard greens and sweet corn mashed potatoes, with pineapple lemon-ginger juice to drink. The cheescake here is to die for, but keep in mind that it isn't available on Mondays as the bakery doesn't deliver that day.

Oh, and the wait staff couldn't be friendlier.

DECOR: If Liberace was force fed LSD and told to go to a flea market and buy supplies in order to decorate a restaurant, this place would be the final result. The walls are gold-plated, the windows have velvet drapes drawn over them in order to block out external light (giving the restaurant an amber glow) and grandfather clocks, complete with ticking pendulums, are everywhere.

The FOOD: There is no menu. Instead, you're given the day's soup, then the entree and finally dessert. The food is exquisite (you'll love the desserts if you're into chocolate) and the portions ample.

The PRICE: The standard 3 course meal is $15 (regardless of the portion size). Tap water isn't served, and bottled water is $2 for a 1.5 liter bottle. Wine is $6 a glass.

This place was great: everything on the menu is either vegan or can be made vegan. I tried the scrambled tofu with root vegetables and polenta, and while the tofu was a bit bland, the rest of the meal more than made up for it. Oh, and you'll definitely want to try a dandelion soy latte; they're delicious!
