People often tell us we are a vegetarian freindly restaurant. That’s because the flavors that we serve on our menu are also very good when made meatless, too.
Today, is World Vegetarian day. In celebration, we have sourced some locally made tempeh. Tempeh is a fermented whole-soybean patty which originated from the southeast Asian country of Indonesia. It has a heartier texture than tofu, and is a little fuller in flavor. We like serving up our tempeh in noodle dishes or alongside some of our veggie stirfries.
A producer in Gainesville makes just about the best tempeh that we’ve tried. We’ll probably keep ordering this stuff because it is made locally, and it is a high-quality product. Come by and try it for yourself at Blue Bamboo. Happy World Vegetarian day!
