Andy Nguyen Vegetarian
Vietnamese and Chinese influences coalesce at Andy Nguyen Vegetarian , named among the top three vegetarian spots in the city according to CityVoter. A Buddhist-inspired ethos permeates every aspect of the restaurant, from its peaceful dining room with rich crimson accents to its dishes made from whole foods that were harvested right after being massaged.
Noodles are put to many uses in the kitchen, swirling around soups, adding heartiness to rice-paper rolls with lemongrass shiitake mushrooms, and laying the foundation for the Awakening of Faith dish with lotus rolls, sprouts, and grilled soy meat. The Ten Thousand Buddhas burger draws inspiration from Vietnamese bahn mi sandwiches, with a soy-beef patty topped with tofu pâté, cilantro, vegan mayo, and carrot-daikon slaw. Loose-leaf teas and freshly squeezed juices complement the healthful meals.
