THE BEST VEGGIE CHINESE FOOD IN HOUSTON!
Posted on 08 / 23 / 2011
When I made the decision to not eat at Asian restaurants that fries foods in the same grease as their pork, shrimp, and chicken items, (such as General Joes, Sweet and Sour, Spring rolls and Tempura) Pine Forest became my go to place after that.
Many people don't know it, but many so-called veggie friendly Asian resaturants use Oyster sauce and MSG as a flavoring, but Pine Forest has remained true in keeping the food Veggie friendly and delicious.
The owner, whom is also one of the head chefs is a sweetheart that has been so accommodating and helpful to me and my dining guest, that he will tweak and alter certain dishes for regular customers by request! He also stops by to say hello if he's not not too busy.
I was late picking up an order close to closing hour once, and he stayed right there and waited patiently and told me no worries! (Though I wouldn't push it. lol)
I suggest the mock Sesame Chicken, mock Kung Pao Chicken, and the lunch buffet to name a few.
Make sure to ask which items have whey, and which ones don't if it matters.
The mock meats are so good, I have found myself asking the servers "Are you sure this isn't meat?!"

Delicious, Super friendly owner, Best mock meats
Heavy chinese accents can be an issue
