Village Voice's Description
Almost vegan Gobo--which possesses a familial connection to the Zen Palate chain--is one of Manhattan's odder restaurants. The menu goes for the global, moving effortlessly from South America to China, with many stops in between. We really dug the papaya ceviche and the Peruvian root-vegetable stew, especially since the agreeable orange broth also contained pozole. Too many dishes, however, achieve their results via application of grease and sugar, and the prices seem awfully high. Lunch specials are a great deal, and the green-tea-colored dining room, open kitchen, and multiculti staff make dining a pleasure.
Tips from foursquare
This West Village café enhances the five senses through five main ingredients: konnyaki, nori, sitan, soy and tofu. We like their white beans and cremini mushroom casserole.
Get the avocado tartare. It's to die for
Yo, where the meat at?
Moo Shu vegetables are great, also tofu in black bean sauce
get the scallion pancakes. Really.
