$10 for $20 Worth of Asian-Fusion Food
Tasty Buddha’s menu includes Asian fare such as tempeh curry ($9.25) and shrimp and veggie fried rice ($11.95), as well as American fare such as beef burgers ($5.99).
Tasty Buddha likes to describe itself as a “no veto” restaurant. Though it focuses on Asian fare, its menu caters to diverse tastes and diets so no one will have a reason to veto an outing. American-food die-hards can dine on hearty burgers or try out fusion entrees such as pizza fried rice with italian sausage, tomatoes, and parmesan. Morsels of pork, chicken, and tofu fill out several other more traditional versions of the classic Asian fried-rice dish, which the menu describes as “Just like your mom used to make. (If you are from Malaysia.)” For vegetarians, locally made tempeh is an option for almost every entree, including tempeh coconut curry and a tempeh burger blended with secret spices.
Tasty Buddha's idealistic owners turn the walls of each location into a gallery for local artists to display and sell their work. Thirty percent of proceeds from the sale of art goes to a local charity, whereas the rest goes to the artist for the upkeep of the multicolored cows from which they milk their oil paint. To advocate for a more sustainable food system, Tasty Buddha's cooks also use as many local ingredients in their meals as possible.
