Respond to Review of Buddha Burgers - Yehuda HaLevy
by veganlondon

Review: My partner and I (both of us are vegan) just returned from a week in Tel Aviv. We had three meals (plus a take away) at Buddha Burgers Evn Gvirol Str. and two meals at the main branch at Yehuda HaLevy. I really like Buddha Burger. First because it's 100% vegan and secondly because they have pro-vegetarian posters all over the wall (many from PETA). The Yahuda HaLevy branch has 4 tables inside seating about 12, plus a bar area seating another 4 or 5. Outside there were a number of tables (together with outdoor heating for those chilly winter evenings). The Evn Givron branch is much smaller (2 small tables inside seating 4or 5, and 5 or 6 tables outside seating perhaps 16). The menu at the Evn Givron branch is also reduced from that of its sister branch. Over the course of the 7 days I had: The Shwarma Burrito - a whole-wheat tortilla with salad and hot seitan inside - was really nice and very filling. Had this twice as it was so good! The Buddha Classic Burger - also really nice - also had this twice during the course of our stay. Tofu and Broccoli Buddha Bowl (available from the larger branch) - although it was supposed to have a curry coconut sauce this was incredibly bland for my palate. I ordered the large bowl, not realising just how much food I would get - and ended up leaving some. My partner had the Coconut Curry stir fry which (which on the menu looked like a similar dish to the Buddha Bowl!) but this was a lot more tasty. The Yehuda HaLevy branch has a salad bar as well as various vegan desserts. I had a halva mousse which was delicious. We also had (as a takeaway to eat on the plane journey) the quinoa salad and the Buddha salad, both come with a choice of sauces and were really nice. My partner's favourite item on the menu was the Carob Milk smoothie and it was so nice she had it 4 times during our stay. I wish we'd stayed longer in Tel Aviv to sample some of the other items on the menu!

We went to this restaurant a few times on our recent visit to Tel Aviv (April 2011)and discovered that on Friday afternoons they have a buffet with many hot and cold dishes and various desserts. The price depends on the size of the plate (for a single trip to the buffet) or you can go for the "all you can eat" plate for about £12. I had a single plate for about £9. The food was excellent - salads, lasagna, "sushi" rolls, cakes - so much to choose from and it tasted great. Vegan heaven. Definitely visit on a Friday afternoon but just be aware that they close early on Fridays for Shabat.
