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.
