Opinionated people welcome! Your ratings and reviews determine the Top Ten restaurants featured in the Ultimate Guide, our online database of vegan and vegetarian foods in the San Francisco Bay Area. Your review is also a great way to support your favorite veg restaurants that make our Bay Area such a wonderful place to live and eat veg.
So help us support them by taking two minutes to share your two cents. You need a userid on the bayareaveg.org website. This userid is distinct and separate from any other userids that you may have on Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. It can reuse or be the same name as one of your userid on another site if you like.
Once you have a userid, just start reviewing all your favorite veg restaurants and businesses. It’s that simple. So what are you waiting for?
1. Register for a Userid – and be sure to add a profile graphic!
2. Find the restaurant you want to review in the Ultimate Guide
3. In the listing for each business, there is a button called “review”. Select that. The next screen may ask you to log in. (This is also where you’ll have the opportunity to select the link “I forgot my password” to re-establish your ability to login)
4. Type your review, and that’s it!
Bodhi Vegetarian House is a Vietnamese-style vegan restaurant in Rancho Cordova. While they are newly added to the Ultimate Guide, they have been open for a couple of years.
With most of our membership in the San Francisco Bay Area, we do like to include listings for places to eat veg in adjacent areas. So if you dine out veg-style in the Sacramento area, please check the Ultimate Guide to see if your favorite places are listed. If they’re not, please add them!
Garden Fresh, a popular vegan Chinese restaurant in Mountain View, will be opening a new location later this year in Palo Alto, conveniently a short walk from the Caltrain station. For many, Garden Fresh is synonymous with scrummy scallion pancakes.
Thanks to Doug for the heads-up!
It’s easily installed by downloading a file and moving it content to the ‘Notes’ directory of your iPod. The Guide does not programmatically alter your iPod in any way: it’s simply a collection of documents organized for easy browsing.
Please spread the word to all your friends!
Well, we’ve long heard rumors that New World Vegan would be closing .. thanks to Rachel for sharing the update that a date has been set. New World Vegan will close its doors at the end of August.
New World lives on in Symphonie, a sister restaurant located in Richmond that opened in February 2009.
Long-time Bay Area folks may remember another veg restaurant, Bode, that occupied that same location prior to New World Vegan.
Cha-Ya’s newest restaurant in San Francisco opened its doors last week, at 9th and Irving. For this all vegan Japanese restaurant, this is it’s 2nd SF restaurant, joining its original Berkeley location and SF Mission district.

Souley Vegan reopened on Friday, July 24th in its new restaurant location in Oakland’s Jack London Square. It was previously located on 13th Street in Oakland, closed last fall for remodelling, and never re-opened. Many in the veg community are happy to see the return of vegan soul food.
Souley Vegan continues to sell its fare at Farmer’s Markets throughout the bay area, including the Lake Merritt Farmer’s Market and the relatively new Farmer’s Market in the Metreon complex in San Francisco.
