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.

I don’t think I’ve ever tried vegetarian before but these pictures look decent haha. One thing though, I’m not feeling the garlic bread with the roast pork ..but if it’s good, it’s good.
