About

Stacy Chen, the creator and cofounder of Veggie Heaven. Growing up in the family of chefs, has stirred her passion to cook since she was 12 years old. Her grandmother Mrs. Gui Chen, was a chef in Japan and she used to own a ramen shop in Osaka 30 years ago. Her dad Mr. Wen Chen was a chef in a vegetarian restaurant in California before helping Stacy with Veggie Heaven. Due to his health condition Mr.Chen didn’t stay with Veggie Heaven for a long time. Being the third generation chef in the Chens family, Stacy focused her flavor mainly from her heritage. At age 17, she and her mom and dad co-found Veggie Heaven in 1997. Her menu items focus toward comfort food as she feels like this restaurant is like her home. Her flavor is mostly based on Taiwan, as it is her home country and where she spent her childhood.

This was my first time at Veggie Heaven, and overall impression was...meh. The food was okay, if you are okay with bland. O did see a dish on the table next to me that looked and smelled great, so maybe I didn't get their best dish. I love that they have a loyal following, and that I can eat anything on the menu. If I could rate their lychee green bubble tea...5 stars. It was strong without being bitter and the perfect level of sour/sweet. I will probably give them another shot at some point...maybe.

I wouldn't call it Heaven....
But it wasn't a meal from Hell either.

To be honest our server didn't seem to thrilled to be waiting on us until the meal was over and she told us our bill total. Then she was all smiles and very personable. (We never saw a bill, we were just told our total. Kind of weird.)

The food was ok. Not as good as I remembered from their old location but good enough. The menu is extensive but almost all the dishes are pretty similar so I just picked one as our server wasn't interested in chatting about the options. I chose Protein Vader, because I love green beans. The protein was thinner and chewier than I prefer and I wished I had gotten something with tofu. I took home my leftovers but they are still in the fridge. Unlikely to be finished...

I won't say I'll never go back but it's not on my list of must returns.
