Delicious stir-fry

My husband and I had a fantastic meal at Ovo-Veg in College Park. They have yummy, healthy stir-fry with either all veggies (choice of four different veggies), different entrees with tofu or mushroom protein. Ovo-Veg has the option of getting brown rice with the stir-fry, which is a nice bonus. The folks working here are kind and helpful, and the prices are reasonable. I definitely recommend their giant shitaki mushroom appetizer... so good.

Pros: Memorable, delicious food, many vegan options, friendly staff
Cons: meter parking

Food: 8. Pretty tasty! I got one of the entrees that comes with rice and the spring rolls. I tasted my friend's entree and jicama rolls, and that stuff was good, too. I liked the organic, agave-sweetened sodas.

Prices: 8. You get a lot of food for a pretty good price!

Atmosphere: 7. Clean and comfortable, but I felt the space could use some more color and decorations.

Staff: 6. Not exactly unfriendly, but not particularly friendly either. The woman at the counter seemed like she was just going through the motions of the job.

Only complaints: parking seems a bit tricky in the area, and we parked in the lot across the street (a shopping plaza). Also, the woman working there told us that the sauce for the special fries they have is made with eggs, so it was disappointing to learn that the place is vegan except for one thing... why not just find a different recipe for the one non-vegan item?!

Pros: Nearly all vegan, Tasty food, Reasonable prices
Cons: Parking in the area is sometimes hard, One non-vegan item

Ovo has unique vegan options that you can't find at most places, like mushroom meat, dumplings, seaweed yuba, and agave-sweetened sodas. Prices are very reasonable. Atmosphere is clean and relaxing. Great option overall. I just wish they were closer to downtown DC.

Pros: unique vegan options, reasonable prices, relaxing atmosphere
Cons: parking, distance from DC
