Another poster from the General Chow board was requesting fake meat recs- I have several recs for restaurants so I thought i'd post them here. Can anyone else chime in with recs? Please no comments on why a vegetarian would eat fake meat. I'm not vegetarian, and I don't think of it as imitation meat, I just love the stuff as its own food type and veg restaurants is where they usually serve it. Thanx!
I don't know where you are in the LA are, Pamela, but here are my favorites:
Happy Family Vegetarian Restaurant (chinese)- one in Monterey Park, Montebello and one in Rowland Heights which is where I go.
Several Hundred items on their menu, lots of fake meat. I really enjoy the curry "chicken." The hand rolls are also really good. Their "shrimp" dishes are really good as well. This is my favorite veg restaurant.
Veggie Bistro in Whittier (vietnamese but not all vietnamese food)- http://www.vegparadise.com/dining312....
I love the Vermicelli with "beef", the beef is pretty good here, love the eggplant curry soup, "shrimp dishes", the also have chinese and italian dishes. It's a good spot to bring unadventurous eaters.
One place I haven't been to is Vegi Wokery in Cerritos. http://www.vegparadise.com/dining43.html
They have the little "chicken" drumettes and I've really been wanting to go here for awhile.
Actually, if you peruse the reviews on vegparadise.com you'll find quite a few. I actually just found a few more I'd like to try. Good Luck!!
