Vegan MoFo: Lunchin' it up
Tommasina and I tried a new-to-us restaurant today. VegeThai in southeast Portland is a cute spot with very friendly staff. Our lunches came with complimentary vegetable soup. We ordered Thai iced teas, Tom Yum soup, green papaya salad, pad Thai, and a spicy tofu and basil dish. VegeThai is, as the name suggests, an all-vegetarian restaurant, and they were knowledgeable about ingredients. Virtues in a restaurant, me thinks.
Pad Thai is my favorite dish, and while this one was decent, I haven't given up my search for the best in Portland. Overall, the dishes could have used more flavor, especially the papaya salad and the tofu basil.
The verdict: I'd go here again, especially for lunch since they have a punch card. The dishes were affordable and, gosh darn it, I really like friendly staff!
