Beyond beef products across Manhattan trembled at the news of this vegan Szechuan spot opening a West Village location in March 2020. The original location in the East Village is one of our favorite plant-based restaurants in the city, and while this new spot serves the same great mapo tofu and dan dan noodles, there are also a few new dishes on its menu like spicy curry buns and fried dumplings stuffed with chives and Just Egg. Make sure to get an order of notably thin and crispy scallion pancakes too.
