>I love vegetarian food when it doesn’t feel like they’re trying to trick you into eating something which resembles meat, but in reality, is some form of gluten made to look like meat. I do however like to eat vegetarian food which are just well-prepared dishes which are vegetarian. Bodhi Tree Cafe, though vegetarian, lean towards Thai/Chinese cuisine and the menu reflects this. Lunch specials come with free soup, and on this occasion it was tom yum soup — a little too watery for me, but still, very welcomed.
Larb tasted basically the same as what its meat-filled version would taste like, just without the meat and it was good — better than I’d expected. The eggrolls were also lovely and beautifully crispy! The tofu and eggplant lunch special (pictured) was very flavorful and delicious. I think we would’ve ordered more dishes had we had more room, but the portions are generous enough that we were stuffed.
Service is friendly and attentive just like you would expect in a Thai restaurant. We sat there a long time and they never once tried to hurry us. They refilled our water numerous times and never made us feel uncomfortable. If you’re looking for vegetarian food, then look no further and give Bodhi Tree Cafe a try!Bodhi Tree Cafe, 501 Main St, Ste E, Huntington Beach, CA92648. Tel: 714-969-9500 www.bodhitreehb.com
