Vegi Food China
Inside this nondescript, all-vegetarian Chinese restaurant, you will find an informal yet comfortable setting with daily specials tacked up on the blue walls, and some traditional lanterns and statuary. The owner strongly believes in the health benefits of a vegetarian diet (as the news clippings posted to the door will attest) and in having everything fresh and bursting with seasonal goodness. Try vegetarian variations on old favorites, including Chow Mein, Lo Mein and combinations like the Black Mushroom and Greens or Braised Eggplant. For those who miss the texture of meat, there are many dishes made with bean gluten. Cash only.
The second time I went to Vegi Food the owner remembered me and my order...and has never forgotten either in the last seven years. The food is sensational, particularly the pot stickers (best I've ever had, meat or vegi), soy bean sheets and sweet and sour walnuts. I bring all my friends there whenever I have a chance and although I nolonger live in Berkeley, I regularly make time to enjoy their food.
My wife and I have been dining at this restraurant for about twenty years. The food has always been excellent along with nice friendly service. I especially recomend the fried wonton and the braised bean curd with black mushrooms and greens , but that's a biased opinion and just my two favorites so don't be limited by my choices, they have a complete menu with lots to choose from. Though they are strickly vegetarian, meat eater or not, this is probaly the best chinese restaurant in town.
