Respond to Review of Green - New American Vegetarian
Review: Anyone who asks, "are you a vegan to lose weight?" should come to Green and eat their words. And everything else. In fact, I usually end up at Green with non-vegetarian friends because they claim that it's "Food you can eat that I actually like." Every dish is addictive, flavorful, saucy, and filling. Classic hits include the chicken thai peanut bowl, the singapore tofu bowl (although the mock meats are a shame to miss out on), the vegan BBQ chicken sammich (I just watched a carnivorous friend down this with the delight and voracity of a young velociraptor), and then there are the eternally awesome specials. Even though you'll probably be stuffed post-meal... make room for dessert. It's mind over matter anyway. Order a Tsoynami - they're like McFlurries with vegan ice cream and epic swirl ins. Standouts include Tsoynamis filled with anything from frozen chocolate fudge, bananas, kitkats, hazlenut brittle, mint oreos and more. On a another note, this is also the only strictly vegan restaurant in the Tempe/Scottsdale area with a lively, hip atmosphere. At least stop by for a chocolate chip cookie and check out the scene, but just because eating vegan is good for your mental health, don't expect it to do your physical health any good at Green.
