City Pages' Description

Vegetarian? Bored? Sick and tired of mock duck? Bolting awake in the middle of the night craving something, anything new--mock pork, maybe? Mock shrimp? Mock Chateaubriand? Well, we can't help you with that last one, but Evergreen Taiwanese is fascinating, novel, and serving things you won't find anywhere else in Minnesota, from mock mandarin beef to imitation satay squid. If you've felt that other Asian restaurants don't understand your vegetarian ethics and are constantly trying to slip fish sauce into your broth, please know that at Evergreen they really get vegetarianism. Just try to find a molecule of meat in your food--we dare you! Surgical theater-bright lighting will help you in your search, but will also illuminate the happy faces of nearby meat eaters, smacking their lips over the vital and lively bowls of lamb soup.

    A vegetarian's paradise. DO NOT think you can skip getting the dumplings for an app. they rock fried or steamed. I fantasize almost daily about the pepper fried mock pork. Cheap, cozy, family run. A+!

    Mandarin mock chicken is the best dish i've ever eaten. Lots of vegetarian choice all of them are luscious. Do not go evergreen if you're too hungry cause it can be hard to wait :)))

    Try the Pepper Fried Mock Pork. Magically delicious -- even if you're a meat-eater who scorns other types of fake meats. You won't regret it!

    They have vegan wonton soup. Hardly anyone knows this. It's incredible.

    The Three Cup Tofu is delicious
