J's Garden Cafe

Whoever said vegetarian food was all raw veggies and tasteless tofu was eating at too many corporate chains. For those truly talented in the culinary arts, vegetarian meals can yield incredible variety and fabulous flavors. Enter J's Garden Cafe. This mother-daughter effort in Hollywood offers Haitian-Caribbean fare and a holistic approach to eating. It's not all veggies, either. They offer meat in the form of slow baked chicken, lemon-butter salmon and turkey griot. For the herbivorous, the options include everything from spicy ginger tofu and tabouleh salad to veggie lasagna and coconut black bean soup. There are desserts, too, like pineapple upside down cake. Healthy and delicious can go hand in hand in hand, after all.
