Golden Era Vegetarian Restaurant. SF

Made my first foray into the world of faux vegetarian cuisine today. Golden Era has a lot of favorable buzz and I found out it's well deserved. Started with the potstickers - No. 6 -$5.25 - filled with chopped tofu, vegetables & ginger - accompanied by a sprite ginger sauce. The potstickers had a nice chewy skin and were well browned...the filling was a bit creamy & mildy pleasant. the ginger sauce brought it all together. No. 33 - Gourmet Chicken- $7.25 - over broken rice came with a small salad (lettuce & tomato). The soy "chicken" was amazingly good - the texture was eerily chicken like and the spicy lemongrass seasoning was delicious. No. Sp6 was the Spicy Prawn - $9.50 - was our least favorite dish. It was battered mushroom in an onion & ginger sauce. The mushroom didn't hold up to the thick batter and seasonings. The frying was nicely done- crispy and greaseless but the batter was the predominant feature.
Our last dish was No. 62 -Eggplant curry Claypot - $8.50. tofu, eggplant and onion in a coconut curry sauce. An excellent dish. The sauce was a good balance of curry, coconut milk & spice.
The room was relatively calm and the service competent. Look forward to going back and trying more items.
