hey i'm looking for a chinese style vegetarian house like buddha bodai which is situated in chinatown. however, since i can't make it to chinatown tomorrow, i was wondering if there are any good vegetarian places around bensonhurst? preferrably places around, give or take 18th avenue and 84th street with a zip code of 11214. thanks

  1. I know a lot of time has passed since you posted; but here is some info. anyway. There are no vegetarian places in Bensonhurst. But there are a lot of Asian and Middle Eastern places where you can probably be accomodated--assuming you aren't a strict vegan. On 86th and 18th there is a large Chinese Buffet. I suspect you should be able to find something here. On Bay Pkwy and 86th St. there is a Middle Eastern place, falafel, hummus, etc. Its called Istanbul.
