Vege Favor offers casual, fast, mostly-vegan dining in downtown Islip. They opened in Oct 2012, and I've heard great reviews from several folks. And I've been there once myself.
UPDATE: to help serve us faster, we're getting trays of food (rather than having people submit individual orders) and the price will be $6.99 per person. If you were planning to order something other than what you see listed below, that's fine, but please let me know ASAP. If enough of you want something else, I'll have Steven adjust the quantities accordingly:
1 tray of General Tso chicken
1 tray of Sesame chicken
1 tray of teriyaki chicken
1/2 tray of curry chicken
1/2 tray of sweet and sour chicken
1/2 tray of pepper steak
1/2 tray of mango chicken
oil-free tray (all steamed, not fried; sauce on the side): 1/2 mixed vegetables, 1/2 chicken with broccoli
4 trays of house salad
39 spring rolls
To prevent waste, rice and lo mein will be given out upon individual request.
Arrive anytime between 6:30 & 7, and join us for dinner and great company!
Bring your own utensils and plate (and something to put your dirty plate & utensils in for the trip home) to minimize the garbage we generate that night.
RSVP by noon Monday Feb 4 so I can give Steven at Vege Favor an accurate headcount. (He will be adding staff Thursday night, according to the size of our group.) Be mindful of VLI's RSVP policy—*please* show up if you say you're coming. Thanks!
Finally, as with all VLI meetups, please follow VLI's policy that "the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." (In other words, we expect everyone to order only vegan fare. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan." Most of Vege Favor's menu is vegan, but not all. For lovers of frozen yogurt, great news: they've added a vegan, soy-based frozen yogurt to their frozen yogurt bar.)
