Good Karma is a 50 minute drive for us, usually in awful traffic.
We make the journey nevertheless because the food is very enjoyable.
There is a shortage of vegetarian / vegan places in NJ so we often discover that our fellow diners came as far as we did.
They seem to do a roaring take-out trade and I've often thought that if we lived locally we'd be broke from ordering take-out all the time.
My favorite dish is any special entree that comes with mashed potato and greens, they do them really well. I also like their seitan; it's nice and crispy. I've been to too many upscale vegan restaurants where the flavor is good but the seitan is a limp floppy blob. Not in Good Karma! Their seitan and tofu are just right. My daughter who doesn't normally like tempeh tofu or seitan likes the Pad Thai with tofu and my son likes everything on the menu except the vegan cheese. When new braces meant he couldn't possibly eat salad, he still managed to eat a Good Karma salad. It was their ranch dressing that did it. The live lemonade and the Hawaii-5-O (drink) are good too. I sometimes get a takeout Hawaii-5-O as dessert. We always get a takeout chocolate cake. We now keep forks in the car just to eat that cake, because we felt so guilty using plastic forks every trip. We should be feeling guilty driving 50 miles for dinner. It just always feels worth it.
