Eat at Chop Stix at your own risk

28 Jan 2013

I would never want to actually discourage someone from eating at Chop Stix, but if you are a vegetarian or vegan BE CAREFUL! I don't care for their food that much, and this statement from another reviewer, "Easily the best choice for veggies in Gainesville" is sheer nonsense.

No. Chop Stix may easily be the best choice for vegans and vegetarians who have a carnivore friend or relative visiting and they want to go somewhere where they can eat meat and a vegetarian or vegan can eat too, overlooking a beautiful lake...if you get my drift.

Just because I don't care for their food doesn't mean that you won't like it, so do try it. But if it is actually vegetables you want, go to Szezuan (spelling?) Panda on 13th. They serve meat but so does Chop Stix, and the Panda has a buffet that is much less expensive.

Chop Stix could be good if you are out on a date. But I have heard several horror stories about them serving meat to people who specifically ordered non-meat. My daughter was traumatized. WHY DON'T THEY GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER.

Is Satchels still open?

28 Jan 2013

I heard there was a fire. But get this--I heard that customers actually chipped in to renovate the place! Amazing. Anyway, I have never even been there. But no one who has lived in this area has not heard of the legendary Satchels. I know a sadhu who knows the owner. He says the owner is a fairly enlightened person. Jaya Radhe!

An upbeat place

28 Jan 2013

I consider this place to be a bit pricier than I would prefer, but I'm rather poor. You may not think so. The atmosphere is charming and the people that served us the one time I went there were friendly and understood our vegetarian concerns. They had vegetarian Southern comfort food, which is quite interesting, really. We had fried pickles as an appetizer that were REALLY tasty, although not for someone counting calories. Nice people. Try it.

Vegan2Go good place for fast vegan food

28 Jan 2013

I went there with my wife and we were greeted by a friendly man who seemed to be the owner. I think he is Buddhist and runs his place on dharmic principles. We had rice noodles and a summer roll, which was good. If you are a Hindu concerned about ingredients, I believe all the ingredients (and the owner) are sattvic people. Jaya Radhe!
