A one-of-a-kind, must-go restaurant in the GTA
Posted on 12 / 20 / 2010
Do you remember all-you-can-eat Chinese buffets growing up? I do. This was a trip down memory lane, except with cruelty replaced by love. The 70s wall stucco time-capsule environs helped, too.
My ladyfriend and I are vegan, and we were delighted to learn that all but one item (a cake) in the buffet were vegan!
Since they change their buffet items week to week (though I'm sure there are some regulars) it's not so helpful to describe each item, but my favourites were the curried wheat gluten and veggies, kung-pao seitan and konnyaku, and deep-fried curry bread puff. There were about 20 dinner items in all, including two soups, plus a few dessert items (like tea jelly!).
The one and only con was that some of the hot food was either lukewarm or cold.
For $15.99 (dinner price), my cup ranneth over. I can't wait to go back. If this were in Toronto I would no doubt become obese.
They also have a huge selection of teas, including flavoured rooibos. I got the lemon rooibos, and it's lovely.
