|Amazing selection of faux meats, as well as sauces, soups and other items. Most stuff is labeled in English, and the lady who owns the place is quite helpful and knowledgeable about her products. Conveniently located in the Oakland vege "triangle" and a nice antidote to the rest of Chinatown.||greg
|Good place to shop for faux meats (mostly frozen) and Asian style veggie foods (like agar blocks; grind it into flakes to make vegan cheezecake). Sells TVP in different sizes in bulk. Conveniently close to New World Vegetarian restaurant as well.||tammy
|Looking for veg crab, chicken nuggets, duck, salmon filets or pepper steak? You've come to the right place! Some of the stuff is so real it's creepy looking, but it's all vegetarian.||grrlburn
