Review: Mmmmm... I've only been here once, but the one time was enough to earn it 4 stars. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the prix fixe! While the menu offered several selections, all of the options cost $20. Don't let the name confuse you, while it is run by persons of Asian descent and there is a Buddha sculpture in the restaurant, the menu is assuredly Western! Here's what you get though: coffee or tea, mimosa or bloody mary mix, fresh fruit, baked breakfast item (i.e. scone or muffin or both, depending on the size of your party) and your entree. With only 2 people to our party, I was certainly looking over at the neighboring party's mountain of fruit, muffins and scones with envy. Sure, we had grapes, melon and cherries with muffins, but no scones or peach slices like the other table! Our entree plates were more than filling. The sweet potato "fries" were more like slightly sauteed sweet potato wedges, but they were an excellent consistency with far less fat! Yum! The fake meat they use is either one or a mix of the varieties easily located in a market, like Tofurky and/or Lightlife. Nice mushroom gravy on the whole wheat english muffin with sausage and avocado. The deep fried coconut battered mushroom was sweet but satisfying. Across the table, my friend enjoyed the tofu omelet, though wasn't keen on the mushroom addition. Overall, very filling and satisfying. Other options included pancakes, a layered vegetable dish, battered seitan, and a tofu scramble. All of which came with fixings galore, or so it seemed from looking around the restaurant. Definitely hit this restaurant if you are hungry! It's near the Chinatown area, but has quite the different menu. Enjoy!
