Tchefa - vegetarian west indian in Lefferts Gardens

I haven't seen anything about this new-ish place on the board, and it's worth knowing about, especially given the great response that Vegetarian Palate has been getting. Tchefa is on Flatbush Avenue between Lincoln and Lefferts, about half a block from the Flatbush exit of the Prospect Park Q station. They have veggie versions of many West Indian standards, as well as more Southern fare like mac and cheese. I'm not vegetarian so hardly the best source on what types of meat substitutes they use, vegan versus vegatrain menu options, etc., but I walk by every day and it is always quite crowded and looks very clean and friendly. They have many flavors of tofutti and juices. If anyone tries it, please post your experiences!
