SF Gate reviews the vegan options in the Bay area.
"After opening in Taiwan two years ago, the vegan restaurant chain Loving Hut now has 159 locations around the world, including five in the Bay Area; a new one in San Francisco's Westfield Mall is the vegan answer to Panda Express. Gracias Madre opened in San Francisco's Mission District late last year, with an organic, vegan Mexican menu, and Encuentro, a new wine bar in Oakland, offers vegetarian and vegan tapas exclusively."
V and I have been to Loving Hut in Milpitas, and know of the one in Palo Alto, but didn't know that there are so many other branches. Also, among those mentioned in the article, we have tried and liked "Cafe Millenium" on Geary, and loved "Lucky Creation" in China Town. Very curious to try "Gracias Madre" in Mission.
