Tofu Coney Island!!!

Tip from Karen

My favorite ramen house in NYC. Solid vegan ramen choice and a few vegan small plates. All delicious.

Tip from David

Try getting the tofu noodles instead of the regular ramen noodle.

Tip from Brad

The vegetarian ramen is super flavorful. I'm also a fan of their warm japanese sweet potatos and bizarre Tofu Coney island appetizer. Oh and make sure you make a reservation!

OMG - thai salad is the best thing ever

Tip from JD

SO GOOD! Try the caeser, quinoa taco salad, pesto meatball sandwich and the guac burger. Mac and cheese isn't bad; it's kinda sweet.

They post the vegan options on their FAQ - http://www.xianfoods.com/faqs.pdf "What are your vegetarian/vegan options? A1, A2, A4, N5, Ns5, N8, L1, L2, and F1 are completely vegetarian and vegan. F6, F7 dumpling dishes are vegetarian but may contain egg whites to hold together the filling. Also, if anything resembles meat in any of the dishes, it is just the seitan (wheat gluten), so please don’t be alarmed."

Tip from Cait

A really amazing mediterranean restaurant with tons of vegan option. I went for brunch and got their "mezze feast" which includes a bunch of small plates and one main course. It splits easily between 2 people. Nearly all of the small plates are vegan (one plate is yogurt and one is feta cheese, though you can ask for it without)... vegatables, pickeled beets, fresh hummus, herb tahini and flatbread. For the main dish, we got the pollen syrup with stone fruit without ricotta. It was incredible, like a mediterranean french toast. Definitely recommend for a great vegan brunch. :)
