Bamboo Club

They appear to have a new, more vegetarian-friendly menu!  I ordered my meal "strict vegetarian" and they seemed very willing to comply.  But, always double check when you order.

Bombay Spice
Glendale & 16th St.
"They have great of vegetarian options (more than what is currently listed on their Website) with lots of tofu dishes! Most vegetarian items seem to be vegan, but the mint sauce has yogurt in it (and they put it on the plate under the samosas – so ask to have it left off). The $6/glass wine is a nice concept too!  I think they’re opening up on Tatum and Shea by Whole Foods as well."  Thanks, Sonia!!

Fate - Chinese
South of Roosevelt on 4th St.
It is a small place with only a few parking spots - parking is available on the streets south of the restaurant.  Very cozy atmosphere. They are open for lunch and dinner and are open until 3am on Fri and Sat.  All of the entrees can be made with your choice of chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu.  So they are not exclusively veg, but almost everything can be made veg.  Four out of the seven appetizers are marked vegetarian. 
"It is Asian food and about 95% of the menu is vegan. Everything I have had there is EXCELLENT! The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.  It is owned by one man who does all the cooking himself. Besides the menu being almost perfect, the atmosphere is very artsy and fun. A MUST for any vegan!"  
Thanks, Jason!
Stuff at Fate that is not vegan:  the Pad Thai is NOT vegan- fish sauce and eggs, the Wok Fried Noodles are not vegan (egg noodles) and NONE of the soups are vegan... otherwise, all of the entrees can be made vegan and a few of the appetizers (buns, spring rolls, egg rolls, and tofu wedges) are vegan.   I have been alerted that they fry the tofu in the same vats as the meat.

Eden's vegetarian dish: Veggie patties, falafel, dolmeh served on basmati rice with skewered bell peppers, onions and tomatoes.  Dolmeh: Stuffed grape leaves filled with rice, chopped onions, dill weed, olive oil, mint and spices.  It is served with yogurt dip, but can be ordered without.  The only lunch/pita they have is a Falafel Sandwich: Crispy fried chick peas and spices in pita with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and tahini sauce.  They assured me there was no yogurt in the tahini (didn't taste like it had any).

They have a lot of vegan food.  The two vegetarian plates do come with spinach pie.  I have not ordered those to find out if they can be left off.  They have good falafel and baba ganouj, they have a hummus pita, and more.  They mark everything on their menu that is vegetarian, but you do have to look out for items with cheese.  They are very accommodating!
