I am in love!

28 Jan 2012

My husband and I had a buffet style brunch here. I fell in love with this cafeteria style restaurant. I have a lot of food allergies so it is perfect for me. I can see the whole food and identify it easily. I wish they would expand and open a restaurant in every city in the USA!!!!!!!! I live in Dallas and it is hard to find a macrobiotic place to eat.

I am in love

Bees has vegan specials that change everyday. The sauces are fabulous. I am in love with the vegan fat-free blue corn quinoa, tofu and black bean enchilada with amarillo sauce. I also love the vegan specials. The corn chips are no oil-free so I would pass if you are worried about your heart.

Great food

11 Jun 2012

While visiting Kennesaw, I stopped in at the local Loving Hut Vegan restaurant. The owner and two cooks were very kind and accommodating. I felt very welcome there. I have several food allergies: soy, all beans, all grains, gluten, peanuts, eggs, cayenne pepper, and milk. I did not go hungry. :-) The chef whipped me up a delightful meal without any problem and served it with a wonderful smile.

Part of the proceeds of each meal purchased go towards helping animals. I am delighted to use my pocketbook to aid animal welfare organizations.

V-spot's menu can be seen at vspotcafe.com

My friends and I ate here a few nights ago. I ordered a start me up $6.5, mixed green salad $9, polano corn chowder $9 and no entree due to allergies.

The V-Spot menu featured vegan and raw vegan upscale dining items.

Unlike the Spiral Diner, the V-Spot does not have a special allergy friendly menu. I wish they would make one and mark it COF= coconut free, CF-corn free, SF=soy free, BLF= bean and legume free, WF=wheat free, GF= gluten free NF= nut free and PF=peanut free

If you have allergies like many vegans do, watch out. You will be stuck with a drink and a salad. Unless they change their menu. Check back. I think they are listening to customers.

800 E Arapaho Ste 120, Richardson, USA


27 May 2012

I ate here with my husband. We met the elderly and super friendly Taiwanese owners. The owners drive a car with a bumper sticker that advertises their vegan lifestyle. The restaurant serves all vegan food.
The Mrs. recommended we try the mock fish, moc ma-po-tofu, and moc orange chicken. My husband loved all three dishes. We had lots of left overs.

I ate rice and soy-free steamed vegetables. They were very tasty. My husband has been back several times.

I have taken a lot of my friends here to eat and they all loved the food. They said they did not miss the meat, but as vegans the mock soy meat is a bit much. They would prefer to have a larger variety of vegetables and less soy meats.

Except for the brown rice and very small raw salad buffet, everything in the buffet contains soy and gluten. There is a very small selection of steamed or stir fried vegetables you can order off the menu. Make sure to ask for no soy sauce or peanut oil if you are allergic. I wish the selection of steamed or baked vegetables was larger.

Most Chinese food is high in sodium, sugar, fat and peanut oil. Vegan Chinese food is low in animal saturated fats, but it is still high in fat if you eat fried tofu or fried anything. Caldwell B. Esselstyn M.D., author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, explained that if you don't want to get heart disease or if you have heart disease you should eat no liquid oil. Period.

I took mother and four friends here and they loved the food. I got a vegetarian meal turned into a vegan meal with no problem. (The options are limited). The nan bread does contain dairy so watch out if you are allergic to dairy like me. This is a hard place to eat if you have a gluten intolerance, bean allergy, soy allergy or wheat allergy. The corn tortillas are not gluten-free.

Very Casual!

15 Jun 2012

I ate here for the first time with my friend and her two children (ages 1 and 3). They chowed down on the wheat noodles. She is not a vegetarian but she told me three times that she loved how flavorful the food was.

About the food:
The cold food bar is not the focus. Today there was only raw romaine lettuce with shredded carrots and raw apples.

The hot buffet bar contained: fried vegan egg rolls, fried tofu, stir-fry with bamboo and mushrooms, stir-fried bean sprouts, stir-fried broccoli stems with tofu, two kinds of vegan soup a lentil bean and a mushroom soup (all with soy ),two savory rice dishes with a sprinkle of vegetables(no soy),two spicy/savory rice noodle dishes with a sprinkle of vegetables, two mushroom dishes and a tofu dish.

I have allergies so I did not try everything but my friend said she like everything. I had a salad and rice. Everything else had an ingredient that I am allergic to in it. I wasn't full. But my girlfriend was. That said, I would recommend this place to those who don't have allergies who are looking for an inexpensive tasty meal. I won't go back simply because the food has too many allergens for me. :-)

I have tried, Veggie Garden and Suma Veggie Garden's lunch buffet and I liked the Buddhist's cafeteria lunch buffet more because there was no mock-tofu meat and not all the dishes had soy sauce! But I won't be going back to any of the three places. Don't get me wrong, all three vegan restaurants mentioned above have delicious lunch buffet. And all three lack a lot of fresh veggies. For those who don't have soy allergies. It is a soy feast!

Worth every penny. Delicious!

11 Jun 2012

I stopped here for lunch and ordered a kale salad, longevity soup, sage burger and a slice of mango pie. Every bite was delicious. I have several food allergies and the owner was very accommodating. My only regret is that this restaurant is not in Dallas Texas.

I love this restaurant. They have a special menu for people with wheat, soy and gluten allergies! I have eaten here three times with my friends and we have loved the food each time! My husband got converted to vegan food here. He wonders why restaurants still serve meat, milk and eggs.

I have tried the Viva Las Migas breakfast tortillas (divine!), Raw Salad (delicious), Potato Salad (to die for), El Paso Nut Burger (fabulous), Ramsey's Perfect Protein Platter (Yum-o), Hot Hummus Wrap (fabulous), Raw Chocolate Nut Cake (out of this world delicious!)

Love the Lakewood store

27 May 2012

The Lakewood store has more vegan options in the food court area than the Park Lane store. The catering department is also more flexible and willing to work with food allergies. I love that I can pick up a healthy lunch or dinner. They have a huge selection. I love to get grilled veggies, steamed brown rice, a baked potato, vegan soup, vegan brown rice sushi, and huge green salad.
