Tasty vegan lunch
Posted on 10 / 06 / 2012
I had read about this place on HappyCow and wanted to give it a try. Was in Chinatown area, October 2012, and walked here in the middle of the afternoon to find that it was closed between after lunch and before dinner (2.30-5.30pm), so I didn't get to eat here that day... but eventually did the next day.
The location of this place is on the eastern end of Chinatown but is labeled as Financial District. The interior is a bit dim with dark wooden furniture. While the space is a moderate size without lots of extra room, it's divided into 2 areas both filled with plenty of tables and chairs. Above one area is a flat screen tv. I was able to see the inside through the front glass windows.
Taped to the front glass is their menu which is quite extensive plus a page with food photos. It's all Chinese vegetarian food.
The very next day while attending the San Francisco World Veg Fest I was pleased to find their food booth here, so I got to try the food. Here's my Enjoy Vegetarian Restaurant review.
The owner and her family managed the booth and served meals at $10 for a combo platter: rice + choice of 3 dishes. Plus you could pay extra for fried spring roll, fried curry potato triangles, and fried sesame balls.
I got brown rice with steamed dumplings (yummy), a soft tofu squares with peas and corn dish (tasty), and sauteed long beans (good). Overall the food was tasty, and the family was friendly. I would definitely eat at any of their restaurants in SF (there are currently 3) when in the mood for Chinese food.
