The Wandering Buddha in the Hi-Ho Lounge... anyone been?

Has anyone tried The Wandering Buddha in the Hi-Ho Lounge? Someone directed me to their Facebook page but I'm a little skeptical since I grew up eating real Korean food (not the Korea House junk in Metairie) and I'm generally a bit wary of strictly vegetarian/vegan fare.

Their FB page is here:

  1. I had a couple of veg/vegan guests over for drinks last weekend and we called up the WB for delivery. I certainly missed having meat; however, the dishes we had (I remember only that there were very good scallion pancakes -- something I don't usually enjoy much -- and lettuce wrapped something or other) were perfectly acceptable. I wouldn't hesitate to wander over to the HiHo for the pancakes if the mood struck.

    I did not grow up eating Korean food, so your mileage may vary.

      Yeah, one of my hesitations about the place is that some dishes , including entrees, lack much protein at all. Seems hard to make a meal without it.
