Sunnyvale -- Merit Vegetarian
Sunnyvale, CA 94085
Area: Sunnyvale & Mountain View
Price: Least Expensive
Warm yellow walls, wood tables and chairs along with vinyl booth seating give this vegetarian restaurant a homey, diner feel. Don't be scared away by the location on a busy thoroughfare. Once inside it's low-key. The menu is mostly Vietnamese inspired and offers a nice range of food for light and hearty eaters. We like the veggie heavy soups, option to order brown rice and more veggies as sides, and the plentiful rice and noodle creations.
The menu begins with a choice of appetizers, salads and soups. Highlights include the fresh spring rolls, seaweed salad, baby spinach salad the vegetable loaded soup, and the spinach tofu soup. Other entrée style soups are also on the menu (pho, curry noodle, vermicelli with five spice tofu), along with rice plates (teriyaki tofu and various fried rice), and mock meat entrées such as caramelized chicken, Vietnamese crepe, curry vegetable, sauteed jalapeno tofu, and orange nuggets. Read the descriptions carefully as many dishes are fried and/or stir-fried, hardly healthy. Steamed broccoli and veggies along with brown rice can be ordered as sides.
