        Technically in Cambridge, but Rangzen has plenty good options for vegetarians as well.

      2. Try Masao's Kitchen in Waltham. It's vegan and macrobiotic. It used to be in the Porter Exchange building in Cambridge about 9 yrs ago but disappeared. My wife found them again on the web: but we haven't been there in the Waltham location. I recall that it was relatively simple, unadorned food (as many macrobiotic meals are) but good quality and tasty. There's also a vegetarian, South Indian restaurant in Ashland (near Natick) called Chennai Woodlands that's excellent - filled with Indian families so you know it's pretty good and authentic. Here's there webpage:

          There used to be a fantastic veggie asian dive in West Newton off Washington, near the Pike Not sure if it's still there but it was great.

            Unfortunately, it has been gone for a while........

            Chennai Woodlands closed last month, was replaced with something else south Indian-ish.

                Would Udupi Bhawan be a good substitute for Chennai Woodlands? I'm bummed that i never got to try that restaurant!

                  ahhh! I was going to bring my mom who lives out of town there! What a bummer. Anybody know if the replacement is any good?

              2. Helmand and Elephant Walk in Boston have options for you. If you are eating with a non-vegetarian eater, they have choices for them, as well.

                1. If you don't mind traveling to Cambridge, on Mass.Ave. outside Porter Square the Arlington side, not the Harvard side), Cafe Barada always has a Lebanese veggie special, often a legume dish, and also serve a delicious lentil/rice dish called Mujeddara. Their ful mudammus, brown beans in lemon and garlic sauce, is really delicious. They have felafil (falafil?), good hummus, etc.
