I wanted to try a new veg place today but something that was fastish and at least somewhat close to where I lived. While I really hate malls and was hesitant to try a place that was in a food court, I decided to give this one a shot based on Happy Cow reviews. So glad I did. Nearly everything is vegan or at least can be made vegan. The hubby and I decided to split a whole lot of food so that we had a good idea of the food they served. We bought the following: Green Gene juice (minus the agave), Mango Lassi (with soymilk and banana instead of yogurt), basil tomato chickpea soup, sweet potato fries, seitan rueban, veggie meatball, seitan buffalo wing platter, and brownie.
Everything was wonderful. The seitan buffalo wing platter and seitan rueban were outstanding. Seriously, try them! I also really enjoyed the veggie meatballs and they were my hubby’s favorite. The seitan rueban had very thinly sliced seitan, which if you have made seitan before you would know that is a challenge. The flavors were fantastic and worked so well together. I’ve had a number of vegan reuben sandwiches before and this was my absolute favorite, though I am quite partial to seitan. The wing platter was amazing. The buffalo sauce is slightly spicy with a really nice flavor and there is a wonderful horseradish ranch sauce that contrasted nicely with the buffalo sauce. So good! These wings and the wings from Blackbird Pizza are my absolute favorite wings and I have had a LOT of vegan wings. Everything tasted really fresh and the veggie juice was excellent. Ordering all of the extras ended up costing us quite a bit but the combo platters were $11ish, which is pretty good. The owner was super nice and talked with us quite a bit. Real nice guy. My only complaints are that I wish this place was not in a mall and it would have been nice to have trays but those things are so minor. Definitely give this place a shot.

Cons: In mall, no trays (would reduce waste)
