Following up on Will47s passing reference in another thread and his Yelp review, I drove to the famous corner of Baldwin Ave. and Las Tunas Dr. in Arcadia and the recently opened Supreme Vege Cuisine. This was where H. K. Gourmet Delight had landed after they moved from Monterey Park (where will I get my minced fish with pine nuts fix now?), and for those of you with good memories (or records), the one time home of the Arcadia branch of Mandarin Shanghai. Supreme Vege Cuisine is full on Buddhist vegetarian, complete with Buddhist TV on the flat screen and nice floral decorations. Mock meat and vegetable dishes line an extensive menu. Already found a couple of winners there, bean curd skin with spinach, which is a ball of spinach wrapped in a very soft bean curd skin, and the smoked bean curd skin, which is their name for what passes elsewhere as vegetarian goose or vegetarian duck. Street address is 558 W. Las Tunas.
