Just order the tofu with leaks

I tried a few of their dishes, but only felt truly satisfied with their tofu with leaks. They cut large chunks of leaks and stir fry it in plenty of oil and tofu. Not only do the leaks taste better than the tofu, but they feel a lot crunchier too. I couldn't really tell if none of the ingredients had no animal origin, since the server only told me that they had vegetarian dishes, but I searched around on the web and confirmed what I'd previously considered vegan, assuming they use the same ingredients in the recipes... Anyway, the spring rolls dripped in oil and their filling tasted bland. The raw tofu didn't taste much better either, and their side of rice didn't have the traditional fluffy and firm Chinese texture, but rather the loose Brazilian version, which no one can really eat with chopsticks and feels dry, no matter how much sauce you add to it. So, yeah, stick to the tofu with leaks and ask for sticky rice - at least you won't regret it.

Pros: Some authentic Chinese options

Cons: Too much oil, Slightly pricy
