Eclectic veggie food, open late

Kalga Kafe is a vegetarian restaurant with beautiful decorations and candle lights. It serves a small set of dishes, including Indian, Thai, Mexican, and Middle-Eastern foods. Everything can be made vegan.

Kalga is located right next to Food Fight! too.

Since moving to Portland, this has been a bimonthly stop. I especially love their Pad Thai (though medium spicy ends up slightly mild). It runs at $12 but I always end up with leftovers. They have an excellent wine selection including organic. The only item on their menu I felt was slightly overpriced per portion received was the black bean burrito.

The atmosphere and music is incredibly soothing - and the waiters/chef have always been informative and gracious. Its great for a romantic dinner or an after work indulgence.

F R E S C A ! ! ! That salad is worth more than just a short mention. It is simply the best salad in town. The falafel sandwich and phad thai are also yumbelievable ( did I just write yumbelievable? Kalga makes me say weird things ) The staff rocks! They rock almost as much as the samosas, though the samosas aren't as talkative. Eat it!

Yeah, go over to FOOD FIGHT first ( they close earlier than Kalga does ) and get some Uncle Eddie's vegan cookies and a bumper sticker. The bumper stickers are FUNBELIEVABLE!! hehehehehehehehehehehehe
