99 Percent Vegetarian

"99 Percent Vegetarian"
Location: On the same square as Alan's Falafels at Broadway and Liberty
Date: June 9, 2010
Time: 11:45, no line
Grub: Choose 4 dishes for $6. I picked yams, pasta, tofu scramble and chili
Review: Slip on your Birkenstocks and have Eugene (Oregon) on your mind before you head over to 99 Percent Vegetarian. Everything is mushy and watery. When you get home, all the dishes will have run into each other. All the dishes -- each in a different faux ethnic style of Indian, Tex-Mex, Italian and Soul -- are poorly prepared. Much in the way that a groovy college guy would try to impress the vegan ladies with his culinary skills and not realize you need to saute onions and use a bit of salt and olive oil to make things taste good. The curry tofu scramble had a off-putting odd flavor -- bitter? -- as did the chili. The chunky hot sauce, which I requested on the side, had kick. But like the other dishes, it lacked any complexity. HD loved the linguini pasta.
Rating: Never go back. No pitas.
