The Golden Buddha in the Inner Richmond is a great place to enjoy inexpensive Asian vegetarian food in the city. Small, intimate, and family-run, it has offers numerous vegan options and entrees average $7 to $10 a plate which is a steal in the city.
It is one of the first places I point out to my vegetarian friends on a budget looking for good Asian food when they visit San Francisco. They offer many vegan “meat” dishes, including the Vermicelli with Fried Rolls and Tofu pictured above.
