Buddha Bodai

Buddha Bodai
5 Mott St.
New York, NY 10013


I’m not a vegetarian, in fact, I’m probably the furthest from one. I love a thick steak or juicy burger anytime. But this place had some really good fake meats.

This is my first experience at a vegetarian restaurant. I’ve tried vegetarian dishes before but always crave meats after consumption. I guess its the lack of enough protein in my meal, however at Buddha Bodai I came out very full and satisfied.

Started off with the corn soup. It is made in the style of the ying yang where the dark portion is spinach. I felt the soup was kind of bland in taste but low sodium is what’s in right?

I wasn’t as impressed by the “char siu” meat. The texture did not feel like real meat nor tasted like char siu. The fried tofu was fantastic. Its a must order.

Finally, my favorite was the stir fried noodles with beef slices. The noodles had very nice texture and for a second I thought the beef slices were real.
