So, I love Plum Tree and have been going there for several years. They have a separate vegetarian section of their menu with mock meat, and the mock meat is seitan! You can order it in General Tso's or Sesame style. Both are very good. They also have tofu if that's your thing, vegan thai spring rolls, and a huge variety of different veggie side dishes (sauteed broccoli is my favorite.) They have pan fried or steamed vegetable dumplings that I'm pretty sure are vegan. If you're vegan, make sure to order the vegetable fried rice without egg. I think their Miso soup might be vegan, but I'm not 100% sure, as I've never been crazy about Miso soup and haven't tried it.
Some of the employees speak better english than the others, but everyone that I've encountered working there is very helpful, patient, and wants to make sure they take your order correctly.
This is a great local place with quality food, and it beats driving all the way to Philly to get your chinese food/protein on. Sometimes if you place a big order they give you free extras. A lot of time the "free" item is crab rangoon, so if you're going to be completely horrified and offended to find an order of crab rangoon in your bag, make sure you talk with them about that ahead of time.
Close to home, Delicious, Lots of options
