FOUND: Good, Cheap Veget/Chinese in the Richmond

Just discovered this great little place on Clement near 9th -- Bamboo Garden.

It's vegetarian (I certainly am not), but nevertheless, it's VERY good, especially for only $4.50! Must say I've only tried the soups thus far.

They give you a huge bowl like most Asian restaurants, but the difference is, they LOAD it with Stuff -- freshest of vegetables and tofu/soy/vegetable meat substitutes. I tried the hot and sour and chix/rice/spinach soups. Don't expect anything remotely authentic. It's not. It's more like an LA-style health conscious Asian/Californian cafe.

I felt so healthy afterwards, I went right back to the gym AGAIN afterwards fully revitalized. Doubtless this was partially psychological due to realizing the obvious healthiness of the food and the happiness to have found the place! Very tasty, healthy, and cheap!

Any other healthy, flavorful finds?
