Faux beef

Limitless Compassion, Andy Nyugen

If you’re not a cilantro freak, you may have issues feeling generous toward the Limitless Compassion ($11), a vegetable and faux beef dish at revered vegetarian restaurant Andy Nyugen. But even if you’re a cilantro hater, there’s a lot to love with the dish: firm and tasty broccoli, onions, carrots and green bell pepper with spongy little strips of “beef” that might convince vacillating vegetarians to finally stay on the nicer side of eating. With a little bit of rice and soup on the side, it’s a great choice for vegans tired of cherry-picking from Taco Bell’s menu and meat-lovers alike. 2007 Broadway, www.andynguyenvegetarian.com.
