Amituofo is a vegan restaurant in Bushwick that serves Chinese-inspired dishes (as well as a bunch of other things) We like the meat substitutes here more than we do at most other vegan spots in the city. There’s a really good plate of sesame “beef” made of soy protein and some seitan bbq “roast pork.” The most expensive entrees cost $15, and the smaller dishes are well below $10. So in addition to the seitan and soy protein things, make sure to try some fried king oyster mushrooms with a batter that tastes like onion rings and wonton soup that might be the most flavorful vegetable version of this dish we’ve had.

All of the food at Dirt Candy is vegetarian, but you should come to this East Village tasting menu spot no matter how you feel about meat.
