The Veg!

Happy Easter! Easter to me means family, food, church, bunnies, baby chicks, and all things green. In honor of all things green, I thought I would let ya'll know about possibly my favorite restaurant ever. Bold statement, I know, but you'll see why. The restaurant is called Veggieland. Can you guess why? Yup, it's 100% vegan!
It's located in Buckhead, just off Pharr Road east of Peachtree Street. The restaurant seats about 20 people max, and they have a few tables outside for pretty days. They have a board at the front showing the specials for the day, and sweet Marie brings you a menu.
My recommendations are as follows, although I have never ordered a bad item myself nor has anyone I've ever dined there with.
1. Buddhist Delight - Pasta in a ginger & garlic sauce with all kinds of veggies
2. Steamed Broccoli - Sounds so simple, but it comes served with a side of their top-secret white sauce. To die for!
3. Rice Paper rolls - I like to get them with lettuce, guac, cucumbers and sunflower seeds. Totally customizable!
4. Chocolate Peanut Butter cake - My favorite dessert on the planet. Seriously, there is nothing better in all the world.
You can't go wrong with any of the salads, and really each menu item is completely customizable. They have tofu and quinoa, curry & veggieburgers, and everything in between. I've never had a bad experience, and the best part is that the food is SO reasonably priced for what you get!
Has anyone else ever been? What did you think?
