Before I go and do some yard work, I thought I'd shower you with a ton of restaurant pics.
This is an eastside not completely veg restaurant in Redmond. I love this place. They are really consistent with the dishes and I have a favorite waitress.
Szechwan Tofu. I ask for this with pineapple. mmmm! The tofu is fried to perfection, and I'm not typically somebody that likes fried tofu without breading.
Kung Pao Tofu. delicious.
Leftovers. Yeah, I'm the type that brings my own takeout containers.
They are not kidding w/ #2.
Some kind of fake rangoon. They did a good job w/ the deep frying, but I wasn't a huge fan of the inside part. Should have gotten a spring roll.
I don't remember. Knowing Andy, it would have to be General Tso's.
Don't know the name, but the picture is on the menu. The noodles look strange in this pic, but they also looked like that in real life. The taste of the dish was good, but the noodles were overcooked. Thanks to house rule #2, I didn't need to use the big ball of hot sauce they put on top.
I absolutely love it when they give you oranges at the end of the meal.
Coconut Tofu. They always have this on their menu. It is fried to perfection w/ a nice coating. The first one you eat is divine. After that the law of diminishing returns kicks in. I finally figured out that they must soak their tofu in brine, because it's always so salty. The solution, only order this if you are with a group - unless you are a saltoholic.
Falafels. I typically don't order this in a restaurant, but their other vegan choices didn't excite me. They were good.
Hummus Wrap. I didn't get this, but it looks good.
Boca burger. oddly, they have a garden burger (non vegan) and a boca burger (vegan) on their menu. be careful to clearly specify you want a vegan boca burger. then check it when it comes to the table. if it looks like their are lots of grains in it, then it's not the boca burger. I didn't write that to freak you out, just as a heads up.
Beer and a really strong blueberry lemonade. Perhaps I got a bit drunk off it. Leia's Tacos. These tacos were good, but let me tell you, you should only order a sandwich because you'll be stuffed. Andy, why do you torture me by ordering too many tasty vittles?
The Lowell. This is my current favorite. Vegan ‘ham’, green chiles, baby greens, roma tomato and chipotle aioli on a toasted whole wheat hoagie bun. perfection!
R2 Pita 2. This was a sloppy delicious mess! By now, I think you are seeing there is a pattern to their naming process.
should I do one more??? why not!
This is a non veg restaurant that gets just about all of it's food locally. They don't have a huge vegan menu, but it's very good. The type of dinner that can take more than an hour.
We had the sorbet for dessert, but it was nothing special. I wish they would have cracked open vegan cupcakes take over the world...
See you all in November and have a great September and October!
