Andy Nguyen Vegetarian Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This outpost of the local Vietnamese chain offers the venue's fresh, healthy dishes without the meat. With a focus on the mind-body-spirit connection, this restaurant offers only vegetarian and vegan dishes. But even die-hard meat eaters won't miss out --- the soy-based substitutes are savory and satisfying. In fact, Andy Nguyen has transformed dozens of authentic Asian favorites into Buddhist-approved versions loaded with fresh, seasonal produce and traditional herbs and spices. Starters include treasure rolls, loaded with soy "shrimp" and "ham" and crispy lotus strips, while mains include the Awakening of Faith rice noodle salad bowl, Dharma Bowl with coconut Thai satay, and Supreme Wisdom with vegetables, tofu and a spicy coconut peanut sauce. Try your meal with one of the many fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices or a house-made smoothie.
