Buddha’s Veggie

Sweet and Sour (Mock) Pork

Sweet and Sour (Mock) Pork

If you’re a carnivore then Buddha’s Veggie is not for you unless you want to pay the same as your meat dishes. I can’t understand how the non-meat version of Ginger Beef can cost as much as the real thing but at Buddha’s Veggie, it is. In the past, I used to take my vegetarian friends here and feast on popular meat dishes such as Sweet and Sour Pork or Ginger Beef.

As a meat eater, I can tell you that the taste is there but when you bite into the mock pork pieces, all you get is fried gluten. There’s no substance inside for you to chew on like the real thing. For the price they are charging, they should put something inside such as crumbled up dollar bills. At least you don’t feel ripped off when you eat a whole plate of dough.

The Ginger Beef is the same. The taste resembles the real dish but the fried sticks are so crispy, there’s no fun chewing on them. As a veggie restaurant, I wanted more authentic vegetarian dishes with fried tofu or bean curd. Instead, they are into making counterfeit vegetarian food.

We were also disappointed to be charged $1.50 for a pot of hot water. We complained but the waitress just shrugged her shoulders. I just took it out of their tip.
