Vegetarian's delight

Vegetasia - I recently rediscovered this great little Taiwanese vegetarian/vegan restaurant. Not only is it a glutton's paradise, tempting with an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet for 6.80€, but the place is sleek and stylish. Other pros include:  it is non-smoking, they use no MSG and the staff is super friendly.
Not surprisingly, it's popular for lunch and reserving ahead is not a bad idea. The food is delicious and well presented. In addition to a variety of vegetable dishes, they also serve tofu and soy-based fake meat. The buffet offers such a great selection of starters, soups, salads, noodle, rice and vegetarian dishes, as well as desserts that I never know where to start  - or stop for that matter.
They operate in two locations, although I have only been to the one in the third district.
Vegetasia definitely offers one of the best values for vegetarians in the city.

Thanks for the recommendation. I wasn't familiar with it. I spontaneously decided to have lunch there today and certainly didn't regret it. You are right it really does get busy at lunch time, which tells volumes about the food standards. Basically it's set up like your average Chinese "all you can eat" joint, without the mystery meat but with many authentic culinary delights that have reminded me of my time in the region. Good stuff! The staff was stressed and didn't come across as very friendly, but maybe they had a bad day. I'll be back anyway!
