Courtesy of my friend and Yelp, my first dinner in Palo Alto was a vegan dinner. Vegan food used to be synonymous to yucky back in the day when my only experience with vegan food was in my college dining commons. Ever since I lived in my own apartment, I started branching out of my dining options and discovered that soy meat and mock seafood don’t taste as bad as they sound and can be surprisingly good.
I was pretty excited to see what pleasant surprises Garden Fresh had in store for us. For our main entrees, we ordered honey walnut shrimp and Thai lemon chicken.

The texture of the honey walnut (soy) shrimp was nearly true to the real thing and the dish tasted very good. I was impressed.
Thai lemon chicken was good but this one couldn’t fool us into thinking that the meat was legitly chicken.
