Inoffensive- but I prefer Singapore
Posted on 03 / 26 / 2007
My mom and I recently went to Kingdom of Vegetarians for lunch (mostly because of the high reviews on this fine website) and were underwhelmed. We were promptly seated (as there was no one else in the restaurant) by the very nice waitress. My mom was a little grossed out that they had a cat hanging out in the restaurant, but it didn't bother me so much. We both ordered lunch specials, which basically amounted to huge portions of food (kung pao 'chicken' for my mom, and eggplant with garlic sauce for myself). The 'chicken' wasn't really believable as far as faux meat goes, but the sauce was pretty nice with lots of different veggies. My eggplant was good, but the flavor was secondary to the virtue of my single portion being able to feed at least 2 people with ease. The soups we got before our main entrees were underwhelming, my mom's hot and sour being a little too sour, and my wonton being a little bland. However, we left with huge take out bags, enough for my broke college student self to get 3 more meals out it, and a desire to try the dim sum--which hopefully will be a lot more remarkable.
Cheap, No Wait, Nice staff
Faux meat clearly faux, A little bland, wished we got dim sum
