She founded our restaurant back in 2001. “Friends” refer to us – Friends living the dream of preparing delicious vegan cuisine. It also refers to our customers who love us and our food. So, where is Alice? Alice is now in Europe, continuing her vegan dream in Vienna, Austria. We are here to continue the vegan dream – spread veganism and vegan deliciousness. “Good Friends are like Stars. You don’t always see them but you know they’re always there.” to all our friends and customers who love and support us! img_20160929_130715  

IMG_20160816_220525 For those who have dined in with us recently, you might have already tried our kitchen’s special – Satay! We’ve had such positive feedback from our customers about this special appetizer. We appreciate it very much. Since many of our customers do not know what satay is, we would like to share the basics here with you. It is believed that the true birthplace of satay is Indonesia. However, satay is so popular that it is now a common street food all over Southeast Asia. It is usually made with meat grilled on a skewer and served with a spiced peanuts sauce. Our vegan version is made with non-GMO soybean protein, soy fiber, wheat protein, vegetable oil, sea salt and vegetarian seasonings. We use turmeric, lemon grass, curry, pepper, ginger, garlic and scallion to marinate them overnight, and then put them on the skewers. The other essential ingredient of this recipe is our house-made peanut sauce. While most peanut sauce is made with peanut butter, we make our peanut sauce with real peanuts and we’re sure you’ll taste the difference! Have you tried it yet?
