Cheap w/ good veggie options near Oakland 12th or 19th BART

What are some good recommendations for places to eat near the BART stations in Oakland (preferably either 12th St or 19th St)? By "close to BART" I mean "within a safe 10 minute walk"

Ideally, I'm looking for a place that is inexpensive (less than 15 dollars per person) and that has good vegetarian options. Asian food preferred, but any suggestions are welcome. I'm trying to meet up with a friend who lives in Berkeley, and it seems like a good opportunity to explore Oakland if there's anything that could work.

        Looks like I have a date to eat here next Thursday....unless someone can suggest somewhere better. But this vegetarian menu looks good...and some good meat too.

          I've always eaten well there. Last time we were there we noticed that all the tables near us were full of vegetarians. Never realized it was so veg-friendly before.

            Battambang is always a favorite of mine when I'm in this area, and though I haven't been in some time, it was a great place to go when I was vegetarian but dining with non-vegetarians.

    1. Golden Lotus all the way. They have some of the best fake salmon you will ever taste.
