Jean's Vegetarian Kitchen

This cozy, clean resto is a nice place to go if you're trying to score some cred with your vegetarian friends. The food is Thai and Malaysian, and everything is veggie and garnished with fake meat. Drinks include some homemade ginger beer that tasted like a sweet ginger lemonade. It's at 1262 Danforth Avenue near Greenwood.

This is Malaysian Kuay Teow, a noodle dish was all kinds of fake meat, even a realistic looking (if not tasting) fake shrimp.

The mango salad had shredded coconut in it--interesting twist.

Very intense, flavourful curry.
