When Mr. Scissors and I were in Boston a few weeks ago, it turned out that our hotel happily was right near my old college dorm. When I went completely veg my junior year of college, I often frequented a vegetarian restaurant called "Buddha's Delight" that was right around the corner from my domicile, so I was quite excited that we'd be able to visit it for old time's sake. Many 'o hardcore show I attended were wrapped up by large groups of tattooed, sweaty teenagers making their way over to Buddha's. Oh! Memories!
Buddha's Delight used to be right on the corner of Beach and Tremont (in Chinatown) on the first floor of a building. Then it closed and re-opened in a building next door and then all the way up onto the second floor. Then that closed, and reopened as its current incarnation, My Thai Vegan Cafe, with a, you guessed it, a more Thai-inspired menu. I believe the owners are the same. For it seems like it has had the same staff since the beginning of recorded time.
I don't think I need to do an extensive review on My Thai--it is what it is. You won't get ambience or gourmet food, but what you will get is reasonably priced, reasonably good, hot meals. Their menu is extensive consisting of lots of appetizers, various noodle and rice dishes, and lots of mock meats. It's not a place to take a girl to impress her with your prowess, but it's 5th or 6th date material. Everything I have had their has been delish, so no complaints from me, but I am sure Gordon Ramsey would have a field day critiquing the place! Definitely worth checking out if you are in the neighborhood.
PS: They close pretty early, so no late night dining, Romeo!
