Recommended by one of my local team mates, Wilda's Grill was the answer when I needed to find an eatery for one of our vegan members. Besides vegan cuisine, Wilda's serves up decidedly carnivorous meals such as hot dogs and pastrami. But what it's most famous for is the Buddha Bowl.
I ordered mine with falafel as my protein. The Buddha bowl was boldly flavored with jalapeños, garlic chili sauce and a salty dressing that tastes like soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil. K got hers with fried tofu. For here is served in an overflowing take-out pail along with a fork-chopstick utensil that does neither job well. The flavor attack's all in the liberally dressed cabbage slaw on top and there was no room to try to combine it with the avocado, cilantro, brown rice and red beans. I dug deep to try to fish out the falafel before they got soggy. I liked the falafel and the seasoning, but wished I'd had a real bowl to dump it all out to mix to my own taste. F got the Wilda's dog with bacon and caramelized onions that certainly smelled good though the sourdough roll as the bun seemed too big.
