I love the decor and I love the colors! I am quite sure the owner (or whoever handled the renovation) put some thoughts in creating this 1950s USA atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised indeed when I first stepped into this resto.
The colors, the fixtures and the mix of different chairs really made this place rather exciting in its own way. I found myself looking around the different items / fixtures throughout the meal. Some items were rather interesting indeed.
Oh did I mention it is a veggie resto? VeggieSF as in Veggie San Francisco. Yeah, no meats on the menu, just a set of 7 or so vegetarian dishes based on different cuisines such Japanese and Korean. The name of the dishes pretty much explained it, namely Japan Town and Rainbow Bibimbap.
Aside from mains, we ordered several side dishes to share as well. The first was the Veggie Wedges which were wonderfully done! The texture were firm yet crisp on the outside while slightly soft in the inside. Slightly spiced and the flavors were delightful!
The Veggie Dumplings were well prepared but I wished the fillings can be ... well, can have more fillings I guess.
I ordered the I Am Fabulous which was the Oven Baked Beetroots Cheese Burger. I never thought beetroots can be used this way as the patty. The beetroots were minced and formed into a patty shape for baking. To be honest, I quite enjoyed it not just for its creativity but for its flavors as well. I cannot really compared its texture to a real burger because it was rather mushy but it was good the way it was.
Gold Rush - Malaysian Curry with Mitake Mushroom and assorted veggies with brown rice was another delightful dish. Nothing particularly exciting and flavor was rather light but no complaints from me.
Japan Town - stir fried Rotini (menu said Tortiglioni though) with assorted mushrooms and celery was alright, rather ordinary yet filling I guess.
We were still a bit hungry so time or some desserts! The Cheesecake was ... rather dull especially with that flag like topping.
The Chocolate Cake wasn't great but not terrible at all. Not sweet enough for my liking.
I did not try the Pomelo Ice Cream but it would have been a refreshing way to end the meal for sure.
The meal and desserts were not very exciting but I did enjoy my stay very much. It was something different, something very delightful and it is a place I would come back for its atmosphere and a quick casual meal whenever I feel like veggie!
- Love the atmosphere and decor!
- Veggie Wedges - great texture + flavors
- I AM FABULOUS - Oven Baked Beetroots Cheese Burger - thumbs up!
- overall flavors were light (just a personal preference issue)
