Review: I managed to drag my non-vegetarian friends to this place two weeks ago for lunch when i was in San Diego for a week. And what a treat it was! When i entered the place a calm serenity fell over my with all the bright white and light blue colours and the shrine dedicated to Sri Chinmoy on the left wall who passed away in 2007. Since we entered kinda late for lunch, i think around 2.30 PM, i lucked out on my original order for an entree which was the split pea soup. My friend was unlucky with his choice of shakes, since they ran out of bananas (which the waiter all didn't know in advance..). Instead i had to go for the 'Golden Vegetable Soup', which was kinda on the cold side for a soup they supposedly just finished making. But than again, it was deliciously full in texture and very tasty! For the main course i opted for the famous 'Neatloaf' ($ 11,95), which they advertise as their bestseller. It sort of looks like a meatloaf but it's stuffed with brown rice, grains, eggs, ricotta cheese, tofu and spices, with mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy and toast on the side. It was just breathtakingly good and filled me up completely! One of my friends had the 'Grilled Portabello Wrap' which looked delicious as well. Since we lucked out at the start the waiter decided to give us a taste of dessert for free (how's that for service?) and we all shared a 'Vegan Chocolate Mouse' which not only looked mouthwatering good but tasted that as well! If it were up to me i would lunch and dine here daily! A big thumbs up :P
