Vegetarian Chinese in the Western SGV - Some Questions

ElsieDee | Apr 26, 201504:04 PM

Our default has been Vege Paradise, and we love it (whether dining in or doing take out). Had an interesting meal at Bean Sprouts a month or two ago - loved some of the items, others not-so-much (it was also late in the evening and they seemed to be out of some things [or the server was steering us away from certain items - there was a bit of a language gap, but that's okay, as there were many smiles from both sides]).

We're ready to branch out, but need some guidance:
* Are the vegetarian offerings at Din Tai Fung very good? Anything you'd particularly recommend?

And for specifically vegetarian restaurants, looking for menu recommendations / avoids for:
* Fine Garden Vegetarian Restaurant in San Gabriel (
* Bodhi Veggie Cuisine in Rosemead (
* Happy Family in Monterey Park
* New Happy Family Restaurant in Rosemead (is this related to the one in Monterey Park?)

And (as long as I'm asking questions), is there a restaurant you'd recommend for a birthday celebration (eight to ten people), where the person celebrating is vegetarian and a large number of the guests are vegan? Would prefer to select the dishes rather than going with a set banquet.

Any other places you'd suggest?

Vege Paradise,
Bodhi Leaf Coffee Traders,
Bodhi Kosher Thai,
Fine Garden Vegetarian,
Din Tai Fung
