All of these places are within 5 miles of the studio.  Eventually there will be a map to accompany this list.  But for now...


Garden Fresh
460 Ramona Street
Vegan Chinese.  This is a wonderful place to eat.  Lots of great stuff.  Try the Black Pepper Chicken and say "Hi" to Alice.

Loving Hut
165 University Avenue
Vegan Cafe (Supreme Master style).  There's some great stuff here, but it can be hit or miss at times.  The sandwiches are good, the pearl tea is good.  Dig it.

Curry Up Now

Curry burritos, samosa burgers, etc.  You won't be disappointed.

Patxi's Chicago Pizza

Salads and Sandwiches.  The salads are good here, too.  They also make a killer grilled portobello mushroom sandwich.  Don't forget the garlic fries!

Indian (lots of vegan options).  Pretty standard Indian restaurant.  They even have a vegan naan substitute.  I haven't had a bad dish yet.

440 University Avenue
Ice Cream + Cookies = Sandwiches you'll be glad you stopped for.  However, it is NOT worth that ridiculous line that often accumulates.
