House of Vegetarian
68 Mott St.
New York, NY 10013
I used to like this vegetarian restaurant. I’ve been here with my mom a couple of times throughout the years. (My mom is a vegan and has been since 1998.) The good thing about this place is that you can order dim-sum anytime of the day you want.
Bad Experience on January 20, 2010:
- Bad service. Our waitress came to our table with our food talking on the phone loudly= No manners
- My noodles tasted really bad because the chef decided to put the black beans in it. I have never had stir fried noodles with beef WITH BLACK BEANS.
- Fried turnip cake+ no good. It tasted more water + flour. It probably had 10% of white carrots in it.
Sweet and sour “Meen Gun” which its texture is chewy and floury glutens. They have 4 different flavors to choose from, but we only like the sweet and sour gluten. You can mix and match on 1 plate.
I really don’t want to bash on a vegetarian restaurant, knowing that there are only 3 that have been there for quite some time. However, this experience was unacceptable.
Non-Asians might have a different experience though. This is just what I’ve seen through experience.
