Landslide: Siam Café

No bones about it, indeed. Our readers overwhelmingly named Siam Café as the place to go for a great slab of soy. Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, Siam Café serves it right. (CC)

Best Veggie Burger

Flying Star Café

Vegetarians appreciate it when a restaurant cares about crafting a fine veggie burger instead of just plopping a pre-made patty on the menu. If it’s made by hand, it’s already got a lot working in its favor. Readers say Flying Star Café makes the burger they like best. (CC)

Landslide: Annapurna Ayurvedic Cuisine and Chai House

Is there any doubt? For vegetarians and carnivores alike, every platter at Annapurna Ayurvedic Cuisine and Chai House is a delicacy. The daily vegetable specials never fail to arouse our senses, the chai is something to write home about and the cardamom-mango pancakes are good enough to incite daydreams. We can’t forget the fresh coconut water or the staggering menu of loose-leaf teas. Three cheers for Annapurna. (CC)

Vegetarian Dish Meat-Eaters Can't Resist

Annapurna Ayurvedic Cuisine and Chai House

You’re a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore. You like meat so rare it’s still bloody and breathing. And you wouldn’t be caught dead (get it, “dead”?) eating some froufrou, meatless, Earth-lovin’ hippie food. But let’s see you restrain yourself from digging into Annapurna Ayurvedic Cuisine and Chai House’s thaali plate or chapati bread. An appetite-busting array of all the restaurant’s daily vegetable specials is tantalizing and utterly irresistible. (CC)
