Kosher, Chinese and seconds from the NFT office, Buddha Boddhai is more than just a Hasidic hangout, JewAsian magnet and cavern of seitan. That's right: Buddha Boddhai is a vegetarian restaurant where the food is not bad. Theoretically, I am told, it is not expensive but then again the Chinatown bakeries radiating from every direction around it sell ham and egg buns for less than a dollar. But I'm cool with the Buddha 'cause I enjoyed my flavorless wonton soup, the sweet and clean-tasting imitation meat slabs and tasty brown rice morsels. I'd like it all the better if it were free, but life was not meant for me to enjoy it, so in the meantime I say: Buddha XOXO.
