New Start Veggie Garden
Dallas, TX 75229
Dallas Observer's Description
If youâre one of those people who slathers everything in ranch dressing, New Start Veggie Garden is decidedly not for you. If, however, your ears perk up at the words âveganâ and âhealthy,â head to this Koreatown spot for a buffet stocked with meatless dishes like sesame âchicken,â broccoli and not-beef, vegetarian sushi, tempura vegetables and a variety of Korean dishes. Wash your cruelty-free meal down with a cup of mountain mushroom tea -- what it lacks in, ahem, magic, it makes up for with supposed anti-cancer properties. Besides a fully stocked lunch buffet (and dinner on Fridays and Sundays), New Start has a retail section at the front that sells everything from vegan jerky and meatless hot dogs to natural cosmetics. Folks looking to get their weekend buffet on, take note: New Start is, oddly enough, closed on Saturdays.

So we head to New Start Veggie Garden, which offers an all-vegan buffet that's a mix of veggie favorites (fried rice, tofu lasagna) and offbeat Asian food.

We love seitan. We also love tempeh, tofu and textured vegetable protein. But occasionally, we do feel the need to break out of the stir-fry and pasta dish routine. So we head to New Start Veggie Garden, which offers an all-vegan buffet that's a mix of veggie favorites (fried rice, tofu lasagna) and offbeat Asian food. The lunch buffet begins with "mountain-grown mushroom" tea, and then it's on to miso, veggie sushi, broccoli tempura and two kinds of veggie burgers. The more adventurous will want to try the wild fern, sesame greens and a bibimbap bowl topped with seasoned seaweed and kelp powder (and washed down with sweet rice drink). For dessert, expect fruits, tofu cheesecake or cookies with flaxseeds. And as far as adventures go, this is a pretty inexpensive onetwo can eat for less than $20.

I was disappointed when they changed the management, but I have to admit they're doing a great job now!
Crispy tofu with good mild sweet sauce. Delicious
