Old-school vegetarian food

The owners are former employees of the now defunct Greens at the Beach. For those who fondly remember the food at Greens, this menu has many similarities. Very vegan friendly. Funky decor. They boast their herb garden and purified water. Menu includes complete savory meals with lots of veggies, salads, sandwiches, creative burritos, and fresh squeezed juices. Order any dish that features their outstanding Savory Sauce such as the Savory Steamer. The Three Bean Soup is a winner. Finish up with one of their Dragon Shots, herbal tonics uniquely served.

This beautiful, eclectic, and peaceful place is enchanting. Although it was a little hard to find even with google maps and then two different smart phones using their navigation. I recommend sitting next to the fountain as we did. It was one of those dining experiences that makes you feel centered after visiting. Along with the relaxing fountain with live gold fish, there is assorted meditating Budhas, South Asian style embroidered pillows, burnt orange sponge painted walls, mosaic tile bistro tables, wooden peacocks three dimensionally carved partition screens, and Sedona mixed chairs and benches.

We order the Veggie Quesodilla as an appetizer. At first we missed the cheese, but then enjoyed the balanced flavors of stewed vegetables in a grilled hearty tortilla. I had mentioned to them that it was a little more accurately a grilled veggie wrap. After which I ordered the White Lasagna and my fried got the Babamut. At first, was disappointed that there was no pasta in the lasagna, but I quickly began to appreciate that the lasagna was more like a souffle or quiche covered with an Alfredo sauce. Unfortunately, unlike other dishes on the menu, this selection is not available in a "junior size" as the Babamut is. A little under seasoned, The Babamut's redeeming quality is its sweet corn.

If you're in the Redondo Beach area, this is definitely worth visiting.

Fantastic restaurant serving simple & basic foods, as well as innovative & creative dishes. You can never go wrong ordering any of their steamers with tofu sauce, and their specials are indeed special! Very relaxing ambiance and always feels like home.
