Tofu is one of my favourite foods. Documentation of tofu production first appeared during the Chinese Han dynasty, about 2000 years ago. Eventually, tofu spread to Korea, Japan, Vietnam and other parts of Southeast Asia. Buddhists favour tofu because it is plant-based protein, and tofu likely was disseminated by vegetarian Buddhists throughout Southeast Asia. A very […]

Rice cake, anyone? What is Mochi? Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made from short-grain glutinous rice. It’s origins, however, may have derived from China, and the Chinese have a multitude of different kinds of rice cakes, in either sweet or savoury flavours. In both Japan and China, sweet rice cakes are ubiquitous in New Year’s celebrations, […]
Seitan is pronounced “say-tahn”. Seitan has a long history in China, with documents mentioning the food since the 6th century. Served as a meat substitute, Buddhist monks in China used seitan in their recipes for a high protein, meat-free dish. Seitan is Not for Those Who Cannot Tolerate Gluten In order to accommodate people who […]
Until I tried the Green Cuisine amazake, I had never drank amazake before. I was quickly tantalized by the creamy texture and sweet taste. Amazake is very interesting, I learned, not only because it has quite a history of cultivation, but like tempeh, it is another fermented food. What is Amazake? Amazake has a long history […]
Tempeh There is a little inexpensive cookbook entitled “Green Cuisine’s Great Little Tempeh Cookbook” at the restaurant counter, written by Green Cuisine’s owner, Andy.

Great selection of vegetarian food including a daily soup, full range of hot meal items, salad bar, desserts. Buffet style, serve yourself. The cost of a meal is based on the weight of your plate, and I usually pay @$12.00 for a satisfying lunch. Other baked goodies are available to buy at the cash as well. This is my go to for veggie comfort food! Casual seating.

Dude, bro. Like so good man. I've been twice and both times very happy with the food. I am not a vegetarian or vegan but honestly that does not matter one bit. The food is amazing. Legit everything I tried was great. Can't wait to go again. You can also just run in and fill a box, weight n pay, and kick rocks. Hmm think I know what I'm doing for lunch.

Can't get enough of this place! Posted menus online, and the food is always fresh and amazing! The fact that it's a buffet is worthy of 5 stars alone. Be careful though, you'll want to have a bit of everything on your plate, then suddenly your wallet is empty...
