Let's spring into spring at a new Vegan restaurant in Queens.
It's always exciting when a brand new vegan restaurant opens. In my little Queens neighborhood, the first Vegan restaurant opened recently called Simple Veggie Cuisine. The focus is on well prepared vegan food, heavy on the vegetables.
But what is especially amazing is that they are offering a 12-course all-vegan BUFFET, exclusively for our group! With all the vegetarian & vegan restaurants in NYC, **hardly any of them offer a buffet**. What a special treat for us to sample, and eat as much as we like, of 12 different delectable VEGAN dishes, all in one meal!
Vegetable Sushi Rolls
Our vegan dinner will have a 12 item buffet for $15 (plus tax and tip -- $3 -- that includes both tax and tip). Drinks are additional, if you order any. The items on the menu will include:
• Chef Salad
• Steamed Dumplings / Spring Rolls
• Vegetable Sushi Rolls
• Cedar Pancake
• Salt & Pepper Shrimp
• Curry Fish (spicy)
• Lion Head (Vege. Meat Balls)
• Buddhist Delight
• Spare Ribs
The buffet dinner will be served from 7-9pm. Please try to be on time.

While there aren't many reviews of Simple Veggie Cuisine just yet, I've been there a few times and have been loving it. This food is delicious! There were also several people who were in the restaurant when I was there who mentioned they were back in for another visit. In the meantime until our Meetup, please visit Simple Veggie Cuisine online at http://sveggie.com/ or on Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/simple-veggie-cuisine-rego-park).
For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. It will be easy to find our group: we'll be on the right side of the restaurant with a bunch of tables clustered together and the buffet right by us.. (Or just ask any waitperson where our group is.) Everyone pays for themselves. Easy!
How to get there?
Subway: Take the R or M train to the "63rd Drive" Station. The restaurant is just one-half block from the station. (From Manhattan: exit at the very back of the train. From Eastern Queens: exit at the very front of the train and then cross Queens Blvd and turn right.) Restaurant is on the South Side of Queens Blvd.
Bus: (from Manhattan/Eastern Queens) Take the Q59 or Q60 to 63rd Avenue. Turn left coming off the bus and walk about a half block to Simple Veggie Cuisine.
I am so excited about this. Can't wait to join you for this phenomenal all-vegan buffet dinner!
