crispy fried breadFor the main dishes, we usually order the tofu with bean crisps, the faux fish, bitter melon in black bean sauce(not my favorite but my mom likes it), tempeh cubes with 3 chilis, and abalone slices (which are really giant mushroom slices with bok choi). I also really like this one kind with strips of tofu and celery. It's really delicious, but I don't know what it's called! I think it's in the background of the bread picture above. The food is so tasty and we usually over order and over eat, thinking that it's healthy because it's all vegetarian. It always makes me feel happy when I'm done eating.
tofu with crispy bean sauceThis kind of food is usually not available on the Los Angeles Westside. You have to go to the San Gabriel Valley for the Chinese vegetarian dishes, and Gourmet Vegetarian is the best vegetarian restaurant of them all. It must be good because you see Buddhist monks and nuns eating there too. Here is the information for Gourmet Vegetarian.
