Lucky Vegetarian In Sunset Park

I knew I was going to have a good meal at Lucky Vegetarian before I even sat down. The restaurant is underneath a Buddhist temple in Sunset Park; it reminded me of similar arrangements I’ve seen at restaurants in Asia. You don’t see a lot of basement-level restaurants here in the US.

Everything on the menu is vegetarian, including mock meats and seafoods of every kind. I’ve eaten there a few times, and their combo platters offer the best value for money — complete with a tasty soup. Though I’m partial to the mock sesame chicken, but my favorite dish so far has been the cold noodles in Szechuan sauce. Thin chewy noodles in salty, spicy, vinegary sauce… what could be bad? The sauce has the lovely tongue-tingling sensation that comes with Szechuan peppercorns, and is one of my favorite aspects of Szechuan cooking. It’s a little out of the way for me, but I’m hoping to make myself a regular there.
