green is my absolute favorite restaurant at home. yes, it's not health freak veg food, but vegans are healthy enough so who cares! the argentine po-boy (faux seitan steak strips with carmelized onions and peppers in a bbq sauce with vegan mayo) just might be the best sandwich in the world. and i LOVE that you can get it on an ezekiel bun for just a little extra! the stir-fry dishes are delicious as well, but i think the thai peanut is definitely the best, especially with the mock chicken. for dessert, you have to get a tsoynami. they're incredible. my first ever was the peanut butter/chocolate, which might seem boring with all the options available, but it's so classic, you can't go wrong. it's great how every tsyonami costs the same, no matter how many mix-ins you want. you can create your own, or go for one of their pre-planned ones. the service is super-friendly, and the atmosphere is the perfect balance of casual restaurant and cafe-feel. I love to bring friends here, but it's also the kind of place you can go by yourself and not feel awkward. greeeeeeen we love you!
Veggie Era is a hidden gem! I'm a Pomona student, and I love to escape to Veggie Era whenever I can! I wouldn't say that their menu is universally awesome, but nothing is worse than pretty good, and many entrees are to die for! My favorite is My Sweet and Spicy Lady. The meat substitute they use in it is by far their best one...much better than the TVP chunks that are in a few other dishes, which can get a little soggy. I also love the mock duck appetizer. Finally, the desserts. Oh the desserts. The peanut butter and chocolate truffle pies are both amazingly creamy and decadent. I've also had the chocolate coconut cake, which is pretty darn good, but not as good as the two pies. Anddddd they're prices are quite reasonable, in addition to the service being quick and friendly!
GET the vegan fondue! the haggis/clapshot entree is quite nice as well.
