Nice vegan options - Edit

There are a handful of vegan options on the full menu. If you go for lunch they'll give you the lunch menu, but just ask for the full menu. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Pickings are slim in Springfield, so this is a good safe option. They had a nice selection of cocktails as well.

Pros: vegan items on menu, friendly owner

Spicy! - Edit

Many dishes can be made vegan if you ask them to leave out the fish sauce. I like the basil rice with tofu. If you order it spicy, be prepared for it to be very hot!

Pros: cost

My Favorite Tofu In The Capital City - Edit

This southeast side restaurant is one of my favorites in the not so vegetarian friendly capital city of Illinois. The quality of the vegetables is fresh and the number of dishes on the menu is extensive. I have three favorites that I rotate through. Kung Pao Tofu with Peanuts, General Tso's Tofu and Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce. Veg appetizers are limited to Veg Egg Roll, Fried Wonton, Fried Tofu, and Edamame. Wheat Gluten is available but I have never tried do to avoiding Gluten as much as possible these days.

Pros: Tofu, Wheat Gluten Available, Smiling Staff

Cons: Hot & Sour Soup Has Pork Base
