Veggie Heaven, Montclair New Jersey

Roast “Pork” Lo Mein from Veggie Heaven

You know what sucks? Moving. You know what doesn’t suck? Lunch at Veggie Heaven in Montclair NJ. Its one of our favorite places to go. Why? One..because it’s really the only all veg place we got. Two..Reno loves their “Chicken” Nuggets. Three…the staff loves our child and it’s cool if she runs around like the mad women that she is.

I get obsessed with certain dishes there and will only order that for months and months then switch to something else. Their Roast “Pork” Lo Mein is something I always switch back to here and there on a regular basis. I love the noodles, I love the “pork” and I love the big chunks of scallions. I could do without the cabbage but I put up with it anyway.

“Chicken” Nuggets

The one thing I can count on her always eating at a restaurant are these damn “chicken” nuggets. They are fabulous! They come with a nice spicy-ish sauce that we keep away from her. She dipped once into it and it wasn’t a fun time. Its hard for Peter and I not to steal to many of these from her.

Spring Rolls

Better then the frozen ones I keep in my freezer.

Scallion Pancakes

Our one true love. I don’t think there has ever been a time where we haven’t ordered these. We use to order 1 for each of us. Now we split one and order the above spring rolls or something smaller (usually).

    veggiegirl! I havn’t been watching ANTM at all. Simply because of moving and not having tv for a few weeks. I need to catch up.

    cheryl…always balls!

    jessy…i never want to change such a tasty good thing! but always wonder if something will be even better. but then there is a chance that it will suck! the horrors of switching to a new meal at a favorite restaurant!
