Asian Fast Food with Numerous Veg Options

Walking into this place, you'd hardly recognize it as a fast-food joint. There's just two booths for seating and not one of those Big Order Boards to glance at. In fact, you'll have to look at the takeout menu just to see what's cooking. For vegetarians, there's some decent choices, and all meals can made made with tofu.

Entrees (with white rice) include:
Assorted Vegetables
Moo Shu Vegetables
Braised Tofu
Spicy Tofu
Honey Tofu
Orange Tofu
Veggie Chow Mein
Veggie Fried Rice
Veggie Egg Foo Young

In the combo meals, they'll substitute a vegan egg roll for the crab puff and steamed rice for fried rice. (They say their egg rolls are vegan.)

The only special on the menu is the Assorted Vegetable Combo Meal that can be had at lunch for $4.50.

This isn't the most dine-in friendly place I've ever seen, so think about getting something to-go if you venture in here.

I have not had any Chinese food for the three years I've been vegetarian, found out this place was Vegfriendly and decided to try it. The orange tofu is absolutely delicious and straight tofu is very filling. The Veggie Egg Foo Young was also very good. nice, fresh, fast food. Veggie Egg Roll was great as well. Definitely glad to have tried this place, great food, great price. Will go back!

At first I would have rated this restaurant as excellent. I got the Orange Deep Fried Tofu with Spring rolls & White rice, and it was very tasty. But the second time I went back, (I got the same meal) I took a bite of my spring roll...and to my horrified disgust...there was chicken in it!! I spit it out and felt dirty for the rest of the day. Needless to say, I havent been back. I'm sure they probably got the veg spring rolls mixed up with the chicken ones, but I can't risk that again. If you really want to try it though, I do recommend the Deep Fried Orange Tofu.
