Vegetarian House (Cult Restaurant)

I'm not sure why I haven't posted anything about the Vegetarian House in San Jose until now.  It's one of my favorite restaurants in the area.  Yes, it is run by a cult (Quan Yin Method) under the rule of the Supreme Master Ching Hai.  Aside from all the cult paraphernalia, they don't try to induct you or anything.  And, from what I can tell it's a fairly harmless cult.

It's a vegan restaurant, but the food there is incredible.  I can say that nearly everything I've had there is amazingly good -- though, I do try to stay away from the fried items.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of the dishes they serve there.  Unfortunately, one of my favorites, Three Cup Wonder, is no longer available.  Hopefully, they can bring it back.  Apparently, they switched providers for one of the ingredients and the recipe didn't work with the new product.

If you're in the area and want to have a nice vegan meal, give them a try.  You won't be disappointed.  And, if you really didn't enjoy the food, you can always walk across the street and hit up Vung Tau, which I am quite fond of as well.
