Treasure find in Venice!
Posted on 08 / 12 / 2012
I happened upon Buddhabar Restaurant by happy chance while walking the streets on the island of Lido in Venice, Italy. We grabbed a table outside and were promptly greeted. The waiter was very nice, helpful, and knowledgeable about vegan food. He heroically saved the day by advising me that their vegetable samosas were not vegan-friendly. There were several vegan options from which to choose. I ended up doing a combo and creating my own dish. I ordered vegetable rice and the seitan & potatoes dish. The seitan/potato dish was so good, very flavorful and cooked perfectly. I added them to the rice, which made for an extremely satisfying dinner. I had enough left over to take away. The dishes were reasonably priced as well. Venice is not very vegan friendly, so I, for one, was over-joyed to discover this gem. I normally wouldn't give a meat-serving establishment anything above a 3, but I feel that a 4 is well-deserved in this case.
vegan-friendly, fairly inexpensive, knowledgeable, helpful staff
