Organic Buddha Cafe

Met up with two of my friends here for dinner last night. I started with a pot of Magical Spell tea, which was very nice, and one friend ordered the mango soy banana shake. We were both quite disappointed that the Tofu Suns, which I've read favourable reviews about, weren't available but that was apparently due to the fact that the shipment that was supposed to have been delivered that day wasn't. Instead, we started off by sharing an order of the sweet potato wedges, which were good and filling, but not great. I ordered the Korean Kindness bowl: brown organic rice piled with snow peas, shiitake mushrooms, red peppers, pickled cabbage. It was a very filling dish, the bowl was piled so high, but it really badly needed a touch of salt. Friend One ordered the tempeh burger which looked very nice, and she enjoyed it. Accoutrements were pickles, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, some kind of pesto, and saurkraut. Very nice! Friend Two ordered the Chinese rice bowl, of which I was able to have a bit of. It was a much sweeter dish than the Korean bowl, piled high with lotus root, garbanzo beans, cabbage, schezewan peppercorns. To end the meal, friend Two and I each ordered a bowl of miso soup. Susan, the macrobiotic chef for the Organic Buddha, had heard how bad I was coughing (due to a bad cold I'm going through right now), so she threw in some sliced lotus roots into my miso soup as she said that it aids in respiration health. I was very touched by this and thought this was a great gesture. Despite the disappoint of not getting to sample the Tofu Suns, I still enjoyed my experience and will definitely be making another trip.
